List of Themes
If you’re looking for a plot or theme to help get me writing, feel free to browse through these to give me a prompt and inspiration!
Your Character Eating
A piece about your character(s) eating. It will focus on the senses and the taste of the food, for a longer piece it will include any dialogue and exchanges between the two characters.
My Morning Routine
A story about your OC (or avatar) going about their morning routine. This includes taking a shower, eating breakfast, cleaning the cat litter – whatever. You can give me an idea or you can just let me do whatever.
My Daily Routine
A longer story about your OC (or avatar) going about their daily routine. We will need to discuss their regular daily routine and other characters they interact with. Please note, this is generally for longer commissions, my sample is 5 days of writing.
A story about your OC (or avatar) being an angst parade about a specific (or undefined) issue. For a longer piece, I would likely have another character making things worse or trying to cheer them up or just trying to ruin their bad mood.
A story about your OC (or avatar) being sick with the common cold and wallowing in self pity. For a longer piece, I would probably have another character interacting and trying to nurse them back to health.
Basically, this theme is your OC/Avatar preparing something for someone they love. This may include cooking a nice meal, baking a cake, getting the bedroom ready with rose petals, writing a poem, asking their father’s permission, choosing jewellery, and so on. It doesn’t have to be romantic, and it definitely doesn’t have to be serious. It almost definitely will not have the partner’s reaction to said preparation.
Basically, this theme is your OC/Avatar having a nightmare. It will take place entirely in the dream. You can request other characters be in the dream, and you can request specifics things happen in the dream.
Basically, this theme is your OC/Avatar in the “Meat Locker trope,” that is your character is trapped with another character for an indefinite amount of time. It can be comical or serious, and maybe they learn something new about each other, or maybe they just make out. You can decide where they are trapped/how they are trapped, or I can. Please specify if one of your characters is claustrophobic so I know to add that fear in.
A story about about your OC(s) raging about something that bothers them. You can tell me what you want them to rage about, or I can pick (it’ll probably be something ridiculous if you let me pick). Just don’t pick something overly racist/sexist unless it’s relevant to the time period or unless I can undermine it.
For a longer commission, I would probably have two characters arguing.
“Look Mom, I’m a SUPERHERO!”
Basically, this theme is your OC/Avatar as a CHILD
being absolutely ridiculous. I would prefer to dress them up in a superhero costume and have them try to jump off a building, but I’m willing to do childhood angst/drama as well, if it’s applicable to your character. They can be doing any childhood thing, to be honest! I will write more than one character if they’re siblings or childhood friends or whatever you come up with!
We can discuss a discount if you’re up for one of my characters being a childhood friend and/or babysitter.
This focuses on your characters fighting zombies. They will be slow George A. Romero-style zombies because I love them. I am also willing to have a turned-zombie character fight a non-zombie character.
This focuses on your characters experiencing an alien invasion, inspired around the 1953 War of the Worlds film. The aliens will be similar in style & technology, but their appearances may vary from piece to piece.
Robots, and various technologies aligned with robots, have decided to uprise and take over humanity. This is anywhere from actual robots attacking to toasters and laptops rebelling. If you want something specific, please let me know so I don’t write about a toaster attacking someone if you want robots.
Your characters are either living through a nuclear war, at the end of a nuclear war, or just before a nuclear war is about to erupt. You can choose when and how you want your characters involved in the fallout, or you can leave it all up to me!
The world’s being invaded by an unknown enemy, and the world’s leaders decide they need everyone they can at the front lines. Whether your characters are nurses or soldiers, they’re likely always in the line of fire, and perhaps even trying to understand what their enemy is and what the enemy wants from them. The combat is a mix of trench warfare with futuristic technology.
This is part of “end times” where God pulls his faithful off the earth so the unfaithful can be judged or whatever. I want to write about those who were left behind on earth and the chaos there. Please note, the focus will not be on religion, the characters probably won’t even consider it religious unless you specifically want it to be.
Flash Ice Age
Suddenly everything gets covered in snow and ice. Your characters probably won’t like it. What will they burn first?
Flood of Biblical Proportion
Water tries to wipe people off the planet. Your characters try to cling onto anything to keep afloat, but does it mean clinging to each other?
Without the Sun
The sun disappears from the sky. That is, it’s definitely daytime, but the stars are still out without a moon. In a sense, the sun has “gone out.” Everyone has a shit fit, and maybe your characters do as well.
In the Snow
A story about your OC or avatar in the snow. Just tell me whether or not they like winter. I will gladly write someone bitching about the snow even though I love it to death. This can include building things in the snow, making out, crashing a car, and so on.
A story about family life. I won’t write about incest or anything romantic. I want to write about parents with their children or siblings being friendly or fighting or whatever.
A story about your character(s) being drunk. You don’t have to pick their drunken activity, if you don’t they will probably be drawing testicles, pissing on trees, or ranting about whatever I feel like!
A short story about your OCs but mainly about cats. They can be about your OC with a cat, your OC turning into a cat, about some random cat, or whatever just make it about cats.
Machine of Death
Your OC steps up to the Machine of Death. Basically, I want to write about what happens when your character finds out how they’ll die.
There may be death, there may be humour or fear, there may even be life, who knows! So, I may not be writing about the character at their moment of death, and it may not even be when they come away from the machine. It could be them telling their loved ones or having a close call or something. It will depend on the death, the character, and mainly on what I feel like at the time. I’m afraid you get no say in this.
