Imagine being a witch (on Earth) and accidentally summoning Loki. He gets angry and confused, but ends up actually liking your company and teaches you more magic. 

This is actually one of my plotbunnies.

Dear Plotbunny Fairy,

That’s enough now. Thank you.

No, really, I don’t need any more.

No, really-

PLOT BUNNY COLLECTION (part 2)

alkjira:

[part 1]

The one that attacks just as you’re about to fall asleep

The one which seems like a good idea at first

The one you immediately need to share with a friend 

The one which mutates while you’re writing

When several bunnies merge into one story

The ‘I CAN’T BELIEVE I CAME UP WITH THAT’ one

The one only you seems to care about

Some fractured fairy tale ideas…

sparkingstoryinspiration:

– Cinderella went to the ball to kill the prince.

– “All hail Alice, the Queen of Hearts.”

– Rapunzel is the witch’s illegitimate daughter, and she is being kept safe from a king who would have her killed on sight.

– The Little Match Girl is a now phantom luring people to their deaths.

– Little Red Riding Hood is a werewolf.

– “So… You’re the Pied Piper, eh? I thought you’d be taller.”

– Princess Snow White and the evil Snow Queen? One and the same.

– “If you value your life, my life, the lives of everyone in this city… you won’t wake the sleeping princess.”

– The land of the Twelve Dancing Princesses is falling apart at the seams, and the rest of reality with it.

– A witch who made some bad decisions in her youth is forced to adopt and raise a child.

– After Jack the Giant Killer ruthlessly murdered their king and threw their world into turmoil and war, the inhabitants of the Sky Kingdom must rebuild their lives.

– “What… what is it?”
“A firebird – the last of her kind.”

I would like all of these please.

  • They find a book written in Latin… one guy doesn’t take Latin and doesn’t want to mess up the pronunciation. The girl is studying Mandarin. Another guy recommends sticking it into Google Translate but that’s likely to land them with gibberish. They leave it alone.
  • The car won’t start. They call an Uber.
  • The vampire captures the girl and insists that she wears the gown to dinner. The gown is actually hella cute. Only problem is it’s not in her size. Oh, it only comes in 2’s and 4’s? Sorry, vamp, you want me in that dress you contact the goddamn company and tell them to get their shit together.
  • “How did you possibly know that? It saved our lives!” “I’ve got two degrees and I spend way too much time on Wikipedia.”
  • They encounter a spirit that gains power the more people believe in it. One girl makes a vine and uploads with, “fakest ghost ever!!! Right??” Twenty minutes later the spirit is destroyed.
  • The circus is in town tonight. Except she’s lived her whole life here and the circus has never come before… it’s also in a pretty sketchy part of town, not somewhere you’d want to walk alone at night. She goes to a movie instead.
  • “You’d need an ARMY to fight this evil!” “Okay. I’ve got 20,000 followers, lets see how many can make it.”
  • The Evil Whispery Voice of Doom tells the jock that it’s going to kill his pretty blonde girlfriend. The jock gets offended because, excuse me, Cindy and I are just friends. However, Marty over there is my boyfriend and I’m not saying you should kill him, just stop making assumptions yeah?
  • “This spirit tried to convince me it was Jerry when it texted but its texting style is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT so yeah that didn’t work.”
  • We could have easily gotten lost and ended up at some creepy cabin in the woods, but luckily we all had functioning GPSs. Beach party, we’ve arrived!
  • “We have to find a way to destroy it! We—what are you doing?” “Looking up ‘exorcising demons’ on Google. Oh look, first hit.”
  • The child she bares will be the devil’s spawn. Good thing she doesn’t want kids. Or if she changes her mind she can always adopt.
  • “How can we possibly outwit this serial killer…” “… There’s gotta be an app for that. Lemme look.”
  • Only the virgin will survive… Turns out they’re all virgins. One is asexual. One wants to wait until marriage. Two just haven’t found the right person yet. One is meh about sex. So we all survive, yeah?
  • The girl does not fall. She was on varsity track.
  • “Quick! We need someplace to hide the artifact. And then decoys to confuse the beast! What have we got?” “… I’ve got a hundred plastic bags stuffed into another plastic bag.” “PERFECT.” 

i would pay to read a book of a collection of modern horror stories
