    Just a Fish

    Discussion in 'Plot Development' started by Monanniverse, Jan 5, 2011.

    Imagine that you are a fish, you are tired of getting fished. What would you do to recruit people to your cause?

    Thanks for your help.

    Make sure one of them was a shark or at least a blue whale. Maybe a pirhana. Promise them bigger flesh than yourself :)

    I love this idea! It'd make a brilliant comedy!!! :D

    Personally, I'd device a way of unhooking the bait from the fish hook - that way, I get dinner and they get nothing :D

    Or simply learn the lesson of: whenever something tasty is on the surface of the water, it's bound to be a trap.

    Or I'd hook trash onto their bait and let the humans think they have a catch and pull up a load of junk :D

    If you're talking about "fish", the animal, do you mean to recruit "people", or other sea creatrures? The Bee movie with Jerry Seinfeld may give you some ideas.

    If you mean "fish", as in poker players, then the first choice would be to stop playing.

    pray for a virus to infect all sea and fresh water creatures that will poison any humans who eat them and make them die horrible, painful deaths...

    I'd move to a place where the fishing fleets wouldn't find me. Most fish are caught by net.

    Turn it into a horror story and have the fish go fishing for unsuspecting humans, muh-ha-ha-haaa! Jaws meets Piranha 3D style of course ;-)

    I would imagine there is a language barrier between fish and people... unless you meant fish and fish.

    I would do something daring to get other's attention first.

    In which case you want a bear - tell them to take the human instead of the fish :)

    I like the idea of recruiting other, fiercer aquatic creatures, combined with devising a method of disabling fishing hooks and nets and maybe even boats.
