STORY IDEA #365: All out of ideas

A new story idea every single day.

#363: Vlog film

A film where a guy looks like he's just vlogging but is actually stalking the man who raped his wife (which led to her suicide).

#362: Man takes laptop to a computer repair place and says he can sometimes hear it breathing. IT guys runs some tests and says, "Yes, it's haunted. You must have been visiting blasphemous websites.

Think the exorcist meets the IT crowd.

#361: Is this the end?

At the end of each and every day, a man finds himself living in some sort of cliffhanger. A car careens off a cliff-edge, he falls into quicksand, the Thames, he gets shot, stabbed. 

And each day a voice says: "Is this the end?"

But then he wakes up.

#360: Rocket boy

A little boy makes a rocket ship in his back garden out of loads of pieces of junk from the dump next door. No one believes it will take
off, until it does...

Or does it. 

I think you kinda make out that it's either in his imagination or maybe not, but play all of the launch bits as real as possible.

#359: Three-Part Harmony.

You become shipwrecked on some island off the coast of Scotland. It's cold and wet and you just do whatever you can to stay warm until you hear the singing on the waves. It's pop music. Stuff you know. And you sing along and swim out one night, convinced someone else is out there.

You swim in the dark until you've lost the island altogether and you're simply floating in the dark hearing the singing. Three voices now in perfect harmony.

Three women's faces rise to the surface and they look beautiful and they sing and they look like they're going to help you and they hug you, help you float, but then they nip tiny bites at you, ripping off tiny chunks of your flesh away.

They keep you alive by keeping you afloat but they continue to nip at you beneath the water.

 

Eventually, you decide you have to break away and at least try to escape. You dive down deep and realise there isn't three women at all. They're joined in a single body below. Some tentacled fishy beast.

The mouths were the cups of the tentacles, biting little pieces away but now you see it's true mouth, no, a beak, open up, and the three women/arms push you down and towards it. 

All the while you hear the singing, the harmony.
