I'm thinking of writing a short story with absolutely everything flipped over. Has anyone seen the music video of The Scientist by Coldplay? It's (sort of) like that.
He was falling through darkness, surrounded by sceams, wails and murmurs. Slowly he fell onto the floor, slamming his knee on a chair. Scampers of people filled the air as he failed (miserably) to dodge the silver bullet. A bulky man pointed the gun at him...

Oh darn. Is it a good idea?
