    I guess I was a little late with God musing.

    I voted for dreaming which I think is wide open for creativity. :cool:

    Why does everyone like a dream vs. reality? :(

    Survival Scenario. Sounds like a good set-up for a monster movie or something.

    Meh, Dream versus Reality could be reasonably good.

    I think that Survival Scenario would be good because there are plenty of things in the world that different people survive from everyday.

    It's a metaphysical thing.

    How do you know that dreaming isn't the real reality or that dreams are the doorways to other realities or dimesions?

    Oooops there goes my story. ;)

    Maybe I just sleep too much.

    Sweet dreams. :)

    One favourite has got to be A Nightmare on Elm Street. I believe Buffy had at least two episodes on the dream theme too. The possibilities are great, I haven't written anything myself but it would be an interesting challenge.

    I think a Lost Sequel to a Known Movie would be awesome. :)

    A parable would be a great theme. It is always fun to learn new things from other people and this would be a perfect way to accomplish that.

    That's why theme's are up for interpretation. :eek:

    I would be pretty happy with Dream vs. Reality (which I voted for :love:) or a Survival Scenario. :D

    Why did I vote for a coup? I know it was my own, but I am no longer interested in that theme!! I want dreams vs. reality to win. That would be fun. Or alternate endings.. I love making up my own endings (though.. the alternate ending on YouTube for Lord of the Rings was very lame, but that was intentional). Er.. I mean sequel. Yeah, I meant sequel... HEY! Just got an idea, who would like to write an alternate ending for the next one?
