No plot, no narrative. Or perhaps there is.

Re: Describe your character/story in eight words

My ideas so far;

Power hungry youth fixes her dad's mistakes

Slacker sent to retrieve obnoxious jewel

Android rejects pinocchio syndrome

Adult toy maker regrets childhood discovery

Prophesy subverted by genre savvy villain

I know, all less then eight, but they sound better this way

This is a good thread. Was challenged to come up with the following.

Story: War breaks out between differing philosophies of magic.

Character: Kylis's cloaks unite against evil king's tyrannical conquest.

Re: Describe your character/story in eight words

Nice to know some of mine sound good, I'll keep them for the future, although the android one's been in development for a while Funny, I thought those two might sound a little corny.

Re: Describe your character/story in eight words

Two supporting characters from the same story:
  • Middle-aged, affable, naive former knight helps youngster
  • Caring, practical restauranteur embarks on adventure

And the protagonist from another unrelated story:
  • Young professional in dead end career battles incompetence - (with superpowers I might add, so not actually as boring as it initially sounds!)
