STORY IDEA #243: Snowflake

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.

#243: Snowflake

Benjamin 'Snowflake' Percy.

The suicidal everyman to team up with Hepburn the talking terrier. Snowflake is unbelievably PC and completely scared of offending or being offended.

Every year, on his birthday, for the past 3 years he's tried to commit suicide. But each time he went to try it, he thought he was alone but stopped when he saw a terrier looking at him.

This year, the depression has come over him once again and he's in his tiny apartment, wrapping the belt strap around his neck. Just as he goes to kick it the computer chair from beneath his feet, he looks out the window to see a little terrier looking at him, its eyes glowing with moonlight.
Feeling uncomfortable about being watched he
stops, and instead decides to go outside to find the dog who's been following him, thus starts the adventure of Snowflake and Hepburn.
