A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#191: Santa Krampus

I always liked the idea of Santa turning into Krampus. Like ... some sort of mutation because of the way that our culture has turned Christmas into something it shouldn't be anymore.

Santa Claus isn't Santa anymore.

After years of seeing the day he loved so much transmogrified into some horrific beast -- a day of consumerism, alcohol, family fights, etc, he himself has started to transform.

Horns are starting to sprout out of his head. Hooves are forming on where his feet should be. He's becoming something else. He's developing a taste for the thing he loved so much, the children. He's becoming ... Krampus.
