Hey all. I know I haven't been on here in a bit, but I have been getting ready for the LSAT. Hope everyone is doing well. Well, I have been toying around with an idea for a little while now and I wanted to see what ya'll thought about it. I wouldn't doubt if it has been done before, but I have never read anything on this. Most times when we hear about an immortal, we think vampire, or highlander, or something to that extent. What if there was a person, an anomaly, whose body stopped aging early on. Their cells still divide, etc, but the many factors responsible for aging have been genetically turned off. (I have had several genetics courses, so I am familiar with the process, just don't feel like going into detail right now. lol) Regardless, he or she doesn't grow old, at all, but unlike the highlanders or what have you, they are just as susceptible to death from unnatural causes, ie. gunshots, stabbing, you get the point. I haven't decided exactly how I want to explain them never getting certain diseases, but I have several ideas) I thought about starting it off, or flash backing to, 17th century America during the witch hunts. Just something to show where the person begins to figure out they're not growing old, and is basically hunted down and forced to flee. Many, many years later, somewhere around present time, or maybe even a little earlier, someone discovers evidence, mostly pictures, showing the same exact person in different eras and begins to ask questions. This might possibly even alert a third, malevolent party to his presence, and the chase is on. Just an idea, a lot of developing left to do, but I wanted to get some feedback before I really start to get into the meat of the development. Any help is appreciated!
