Here's the prompt: Midnight Thief A family of thieves gets invited to a grand ball thrown by Prince Charming. The family friend, a master of disguises, helps the youngest daughter to doll up as a beautiful princess. She attends the ball with the intention of picking the Prince's pocket/stealing the Queen's jewelry but falls for Prince Charming instead. Kind of cliche, but I can't change it. So here's what i was thinking: I will probably modernize it to have the 'Prince' be some son of some big-wig or something. But for now I'll refer to him as the 'Prince.' Basically, a girl is living alone in the city with her older and younger brothers--their parents died whenvthey were younger and the oldest brother was old enough to legally take care of them. They all work lots of jobs after school (or full time) but they still barely get by with paying the rent and getting money for food, so they are all expert pickpockets. Sometimes they'll just sit on the subway all day and pick pockets or trail people around the city. One day they get an invitation to the 'Prince's' ball and they are in desperate need of money for something (maybe hospital bills for the youngest sibling? I need an idea...) so they see this as an opportunity. They tell the girl that she has to seduce the 'Prince' in order to steal some money. Since she's grown pickpocketing with her brothers her entire life, she's kind of a hard-** and doesn't like the idea, but she knows they need the money so she goes ahead with it. This is the part where I need some help-- they're at the ball and she's determined not to like the Prince, but she has to end up falling in love with him. EDIT: I think the 'Prince' is going to be some politician's son or something and they're having a ball and invite the whole district so they'll vote for them in the upcoming election here are a few questions/concerns i had... 2) I need to figure out a reason why they need the Prince's money so bad, and so the readers will be able to sympathize with the family 3) The ending is very shaky--should I have the 'Prince' like her immediately and her not like him? Should I have her like him immediately and him not like her? Or them both like each other immediately? Or neither? I sort of need to figure out a conflict for the end 4) Should this be a oneshot or longer? How long do you think I should make it?I don't want to stretch it out... Thanks I'll help anyone else if they need help too!
