I surrendered Meme

s&s - silver
I've been thinking about this since I talked about favourite memes the other day. And, you know, maybe it's been long enough that we could risk it again? Let's see:

1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them.
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal.


(If you've never played before: warning for potential brain-eating.)

Er, my brain's already being eaten by my latest bunch of characters (original fic too, woo!) - but can I give you a fake TV series instead - or is that cheating?

That's terrible cheating, yes! ;-p

I hesitate, because last time you gave me one of the most brain-eating and brilliant prompts known to man. But on the other hand, you gave me one of the most brain-eating and brilliant prompts known to man (and woman). So, reluctantly and against my better judgment, I surrender. (What else can one do when up against the Evil Oppressor?)

Or, in other words - go ahead, and thank you.

I remember doing this before, years ago and you gave me great TV show basis. So I'll surrender again :)

There is a haunted ghost town/abandoned city/building, and then a group of people arrive... (Whether deliberately or accidentally, is up to you, also where in the world, or other world/planet, of course.)

Before I did this, I was looking up to see the prompts I gave, and I hereby promise not to give you one about an SF show with a Shakespeare obsessed serial killer again. *cough*

Anyway, this is a little vague as a prompt, but what if there's a literal ghost train network along all the disused/closed railway lines, (of course, incorporating lost Underground stations, too). And the people who know about it and, er, have to guard the secret/use it for stuff/haunt it. Anyway "ghost train network", whatever you can do with that.

I hate you I hate you I hate you I hate you. I can't seem to resist, and did I mention that I hate you? ;)

I surrender. Probably against my better judgement!

PIRATES.

With swash, buckle and treasure-hunting. Up to you whether in space, by hot-air balloon, or the traditional kind, but there must be sword-fights, explosions and an uppity parrot. There are not enough pirates on TV; it is up to you to provide some!

:-)

(Do you hate me more or less now?)

I've never played this one before, but how bad can it be?

*points to isurrendered, the gathering place for all the victims*

Okay, there is an art gallery where the paintings come to life at night, and of course, some people protecting the secret, and others with more sinister motives. (Or possibly just figures from the paintings at odds, or Oddly Sinister, or whatever. I leave it to you.)

Is this happening again? But... but... I have other fic to write, and need to sleep, and... and... and...

and I cannot delay the inevitable. I surrender.

(please don't give me Zombie Sitcom. I was very sad last time this game was played when everyone was getting cool SF and Urban Fantasy plots and I kept getting different variations on "Undead Simpsons")

Um, well, I thought it could. It's been nearly 4 years. I think that was time enough? :-)

And, aw, bless. You never asked me for one before, that's where you went wrong. :loL: I don't know whether I'll come up with anything interesting, but I promise it won't be a Zombie Sitcom!!

Hmm, hmm, I am not doing so well with ideas now, but: a quest to find x lost artefacts of some kind! (Setting real world or any other, your choice). The catch: you need to find the right person to find each one; each artefact only answers to one particular person.

Er, that's a bit weird, sorry. Do what you will with it. You have freedom to wiggle as much as needed. :-)

Ah, like an old arch-nemesis I never dared hope I would cross swords with again...the "I Surrender" meme...

*hoists white flag*

I surrender.

Okay, a 1960s Secret Agent Alien-Fighting, Supernatural-investigating, Mad-Scientist-unmasking Team. But it's a comedy! In retro technicolour such as you need sunglasses for. With hi-jinks. And probably shenanigans. And definitely harrassed Men from the Ministry. (It's so hard keeping all these things secret, right?)

ETA: Oh, and bonus points for refs to any of the many real TV shows that would fit that description. And bonus bonus points for alien invaders, who are in fact alien tourists seeing the sights and unable to understand why humans keep persecuting them while they're trying to land somewhere near the Eiffel Tower. (I might be suddenly liking my own idea too much. Ignore me. Take it your own wicked way and have it been a black comedy or secretly tragic or something. *hands it over and behaves*)

:-)

(You FOOL, YOU RASH FOOL! :-))

It's the 1930s/40s/50s/60 (your choice, as is the location) and a new governess finds something very weird in the attic above the nursery...

Now that the interstellar war is over, a party of (probably motley souls) go in search of the famed lost city/planet/colony of x. Of course, lost isn't necessarily the same as dead...

Okay, you have all the might of the BBC at your disposal and a brief to make a big historical drama of a period of your choice! (Up to you whether it's well-researched and faithful) or bears no real relation to actual historical facts whatsoever.) Only qualifier is - not something that's been done several times already.

(Sorry. Is that too evil?)
