Well, hello hello all. I'll make this pretty straight-forward, but before I post, please understand that I'm not looking for a 'Well go with this' answer, but more of a 'Yes, this is possible' or 'No, you're nuts'. And I'm sure Cog will post his standard template somewhere in here, too. -waves- Sometimes we just need soundboards to keep the wheels turning. So I'm tampering with an idea in my plot sequence, but I seem to be reaching a wall. My MC is being attacked, stalked is the better word. Someone doesn't want her getting further knowledge of the world around her. What I am trying to figure, or even consider, is who and why. I've been sitting on this for hours, melting my brain. I don't want to use the standard 'Her lover had a girl in the past and she's after them now' thing, it just screams 'Cheese me up and give me to a pre-teen!'. But I'm lacking other direction. I've considered the psychotic woman who's stalked after the MC's lover his whole life, and saw the MC and snapped', but that makes me feel cheesed up, too. Now I'm sure at least one person reading this will go, 'Why does someone have to be after her? Isn't that cheesy, too?' Yes, I fully admit it is. And I've considered dropping it all-together, too. But the thing is, the killer who's after my MC isn't that smart to manage this on her own. Someone has to be pulling those strings. I guess my real question here is, am I not looking enough for my plot-hole fill?
