STORY IDEA #345: Mr Many

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.

#345: Mr Many

I used to have a neighbour who'd always keep all his blinds closed and would hardly ever leave his house. At night I'd hear noises coming from over there. And one night I looked out to see him burying himself. Not, himself, but another him.

I went over there once, when he was out and found more of him. Some dead. Some deformed. Some living in various states of confusion and lucidity.  

Then I found his machine.

The Many Machine.

So I stepped inside.

I wanted many of me too. I wanted to have many.
