  1. PLOT CHALLENGE, hotpink
    A PLOT CHALLENGE is where you are given a word, a phrase, a sentence, or a setting and you have to come up with a plot idea that is inspired by those words!

    The object is to THINK FAST and share the first ideas that come to mind. It's an exercise in quick creative thinking. You can do this challenge any time. Or multiple times!

    To Participate: THINK FAST. Don't waste any time. The first idea(s) that comes to mind, write it down and post it! You are to write down a plot premise or basic idea. This isn't about writing scenes, this is about writing up a setting!

    NOTE: If you decide to borrow someone's concept for a roleplay, make sure you ask permission or give credit to the muse.

    Challenge Phrase: A Head in the Toilet


  2. Terry the high school student has had just about enough of all these bullies dunking his head in the toilet! Little do they know that the last time they did it, some radioactive sewage he accidentally ingested gave him superpowers...Now it's up to Terry and his friends, who don't have powers but can come up with some excellent gadgets to help out the cause, to snuff out those bullies once and for all!

    ...wow, that was really silly, even for me...XD

  3. Bill was currently a mess. What was it, the tenth, maybe eleventh time he had thrown up? just how much alcohol had he drunk last night, he wondered whilst leaning over the toilet.... last night.... Images were flickering in his mind. What had happened last night? It began to dawn on Bill that something... multiple things had gone down yesterday. He needed to figure out what had happened, and get to the bottom of the events that occurred the previous evening.

  4. The day...wasn't going as planned. Today was Sheridan's birthday and she had just dropped her bracelet that she got from a guy she had had a crush on for nine years in the toilet. While she was looking into it on her hands and knees to make sure the bracelet hadn't gone down the drain her cat had jumped up onto her back. The thing is he had scared her so bad that her head had gone straight into the toilet. Her hair was now soaked and her face was an inch away from the toilet water. That wasn't even the worst part,she had basically forced her head past the toilet seat in her moment of surprise and now the hole was too small to pull her head back out. So in summary,her head was stick in the toilet,her cat was sleeping on her back,and her crush/best friend would be there soon to take her to lunch for her birthday and he would find her like this.

  5. Morgan was on her way from London to Boston for a student exchange program to live with a family in the US for a few months. She had never been on an airplane before and she was becoming very air sick. As soon as they started to serve breakfast the smell got to her and she found herself in the jets lavatory trying to hold the door shut. The turbulence along with the smell was making her trip a living hell. As she turned to get some tissues to blow her nose they hit some more bumps and she started to lose it. Bracing herself so she wouldn’t fall in she cried out and looked into the silver basin. Her head was now in the toilet and she was staring at the blue water stains. What a horrible way to start her American adventure.

  6. Ellen simply wanted to use the toilet. Barry had kept going on and on in the meeting and she had ordered a Venti Tropical Punch Lemonade Ice Tea from Starbucks. How was she supposed to know there was going to be an emergency meeting about Lettuce, I mean really, Lettuce? Sometimes she wondered why she was working here. So when she was finally able to sneak out and use the toilet this is what happens.

    A head. In the toilet.

    A head in the toilet.

    Ellen blinks, looks up at the sign above the toilet "Don't forget to flush :)" looks back down at the floating head and promptly throws up all over the head.

    Now, it was not only a head in the toilet, it is a head in the puke filled toilet.

    Ellen thinks no one will blame her.

  7. A head in the toilet.

    The room-service lass definitively wasn't dreaming. Right in front of her, covered with blood, stood the well-known face of the hotel's proprietor. For a moment, the maid thought of a joke. But the realism of the cadaver couldn't belie the so-called prank-- nor could the stench of rotten meat in fact. Before fainting, the girl pondered over the reasons of placing the remaining of someone's corpse in such an odd place. Then, her consciousness faded away.

    It took exactly 4 hours to find the missing employee. And solely a few seconds to find the reason of her sudden coma, her boss' beheaded visage positioned right next to her, more precisely. Considering the unpredictable events, an investigation obviously ensued in order to unravel this gory mystery. Police, detectives, private agencies; all forces joined to lean themselves on this strange case, dubbed as "The Grand De La Marquise Suite Hotel's Head." Yet, despite the important mass of brain-power hired, the murder announced itself to be more enigmatic than first thought.

    10 clients.
    7 staff members.
    3 outsiders.

    20 people. 20 potential culprit. There was the summary of the situation, a gigantic puzzle composed of human drama and feeble lies. Between the police and all these probable killers, mostly composed of rich men and women, who will be able to keep their secret... and reveal the others'?
  8. The annual meeting of misfit superheros - always a ridiculous event.
    Just because someone had superpowers didn't mean they were useful. Take Captain bubblegum for example, this year's chairman of the floor.
    They all have their own skills, but they also have terrible hangups. The Lady NitPick obsesses over the details, Captain Streak can never find his cloths, Mothball man spends too much time messing with people's pockets, SourGrape girl can't handle anything sweet, and let's not forget the Wonderful Perversion who needs to, well, get his head out of the toilet.

    What no one expected was the fact that at this year's convention all the actual heroes would be kidnapped, taken from the world so that the heinous Sargent Death could reap havoc on the world and implement his diabolical plan.

    Now the saving of the world is up to the misfits.
    Can this unlikely team save us all . . .

    . . . or are we all pretty much doomed?
