Got a plot bunny you don't want, but can't seem to get rid of? Post it here!

Suffering from writer's block? Look no further.

Post whatever random ideas have been bugging you, but you know you'll never write about here, and hopefully someone will come along and claim them. :wink:

Need a prompt? Have writer's block? I have a bunch of ideas that I'm never going to use. You can have them! Just post a link here when you're done writing it. Enjoy!

Titles!
The Breath of the Earth
The Wind in the Sky
The Song of the World

Plot ideas/Prompts!
Fighting a hero, the villain has lost his/her memories. On day he/she finds a secret lair/lab/hideout etc... She/he also finds a costume. He/She then discovers that they are [insert villain name here].
After election number two, it has been found that the winner of election number 1, won due to a miscount. What happens?
In a distant universe, there exists a library of cliches. The people who work for the library, who go out and gather cliches, are called [insert group name here]. Write an episode where they are seeking cliches.
This one you can use, but just mention that it's my description because I posted it along with some of my other works and I don't want you to be accused of plagiarism when I said that you could use it.
Night’s Plutonium Shore was enshrouded in eternal night. It was a small corner of Elaren and consisted of a city, the river and the docks. The moon hung in the sky, shining with a cold gleam. It was a half-moon tonight. The streets were lit by the glow of ornately sculpted lamps, hanging from steel poles, far above the silver tar. The buildings were a dark shadows among the skyline. The docks shone sliver as the moon glinted off the black steel. The water was a pale shade of gray lapping against the docks. The beach lit up the water with a green and golden glow. The green came from the many small rocks that littered the beach. All the streets ended at the docks, winding their way across the many borders that divided the city. The city was ruled over by five gangs that kept the order. Almost all of the people who lived in the city belonged to a gang. They wore black when on business and metallic colors in their free time. The only neutral places in the city were the library and Damien Valentino’s Pub. The librarian wore silver, Damien Valentino wore a golden suit, and a ridiculously large hat with a pair of white wings attached to them. Apparently, he was going through his messenger phase, again. In the city, half-moon days were neutral. The reason being that on one wanted to be on the receiving end of a mage’s anger, so they left them alone to cast their greater spells. The truce lasted from moonrise to moonset. Time was counted by the passage of the moon.
Check these out please! :)

I have one more prompt! Yes, I know this sounds like a Math problem, but I couldn't think of names.

Character A has a secret that would make characters B,C and D guilty about what they did to character A in the past. Then x amount of years later B,C and D find out. What happens?
Check these out please! :)

A living sword is forged in the past. Now it's found its way into the hands of a dishonest man.

Okay, here are some prompts. I figure if I give some, I might get some that will work for my addled brain. (I need 'simple'.) Just tell if you post you got them from me so if I write something like any of this too, at any point, no one will cry, "Plagerism!"

1. There's a swinging lamppost. Write about it, why it's swinging, and the 'dark' guy beside it. Have him explain to someone, anyone, why he's there.

2. A fox discovered her den was destroyed by 'dirt-turners', with her cubs in it. Describe what she feels and what she does to 'deal' with the fact. Write about her as if she was human, and the humans are animals. (Alternate reality? Sure.)

3. Write a very emotional song about a thing/things you've never felt. Now turn it into a short story, then a poem.

4. Write about the worst thing that's ever happened to you--in the perspective of someone else and 100% worse.

5. Write the script for the worst--best--Soap Opera to ever exist.

6. Take a vampire cliche and turn it around.

7. Write about the world's best actor--write why he's the world's best actor.

8. There's a kid who lives on a farm that's backyard is a pond, his dad is a drunk, and his only friends are a pair of ducks and a swaybacked mule. Turn his life around.

9. Write about a lawn-care specialist who uses goats to do his dirty work for him.

10. Write about an Amazonian princess whose favorite color is pink and she is totally boy-crazy. (I KNOW I could not write this one. Feel free to take it! PLEASE.)

11. Write about the number eleven--have a person named Number 11, have a legend revolving around it, have the thought of 'eleven is imperfect' circulating, etc.

12. Take the werewolf myth and give it a legend to explain where it came from, and explain everything. Why silver? (Is it poison to them?) Why the moon? (Are the werewolves future children of Artemis? Are they all women?) Why wolves? HOW? Make it believable.

PLOT BUNNIES! Write about these carrot-biting creatures:

1.) You wake up in the middle of your bathtub still with your clothes on. There's blood on your shirt. What happened?

2.) You saw your grampa eat the chopped up parts of your pet puppy you left in the farm. Then you found out that he's a deranged old bloke. You and him are the only people in miles.

3.) You're in space with the corpse of a mermaid. You're not wearing your spacesuit, but you can breathe. What happens now?
Need some feed? Then read some! Take a look at today's Squills at In the News.

The world as we know it is ending. Why? Because of the what? The mermaid invasion.

The polar ice caps are melting at a ridiculous rate. The mermaids have been thriving with the heat of the water. They have grown bigger than humans, much bigger. One mermaid is the size of the Liberty Statue. They attack the main cities around the world. They burrow underneath the continents and use their massive strength to move the tectonic plates. Parts of the continents collapse and millions die. Earthquake tremors wrack the planet and the whole earth shudders. Tsunamis destroy even more of the land, killing off the humans.

The Mermaids are destroying the world. What happens to you, your friends, your loved one?
Hope the wound heals but it never does
That's cause you're at war with love
You're at war with love, yeah

These battle scars don't look like they're fading
Don't look like they're ever going away
They ain't never gonna change
These battle...

People go insane because Jupiter is going to crash into earth.
People will look at the ashes of Westerburg and say, "Now there's a school that self-destructed, not because society didn't care, but because the school was society." Now that's deep.

Some simple prompts from the Internet or my imagination...

1. The protagonist falls in love with the reader.

2. Write from the perspective of the antagonist...or a murderer.

3. Write about a man's descent into insanity.

4. What would a funeral be like in heaven?

5. Girl in a coma having hallucinations.

6. Girl unable to distinguish reality from dreams.

7. Pick any famous historical event and give it a twist.

8. Pick any famous myth and give it a twist.

9. Shape the story around a peculiar title: Dream Thief, Invisible Echo, The Bleeding Rose, Monster Unleashed, etc.
This sentence is false.
