First of all, hello everyone. First day here, just want to start getting move involved with the creative writing community, so I'll look forward to interesting discussions and sharing ideas in the future with you lot. I'm a story "builder". I build stories in my head, I develop them, I structure them, but I've never written any of my serious stories down. I put that down to my underachievement mindset, fear of disappointment, and probably laziness. Still, over the years I've accumulated over 30 odd story ideas, more than half of which I still feel interested in seriously developing, although I've been looking at the comic and film media only, a very "visual" person that I happen to be. Anyway, back to the Thread Title. I happened upon another idea the other day, and have thought about it a little and want to share it. I'm not even sure I'm gonna develop it into a story depending on whether I feel it's solid enough of not. The concept plays on the idea of the balance of "good" vs "evil" / "order" vs "chaos" / "justice" vs "corruption". The "hero" of the story, after undergoing your typical "realisation" at the start of the story confronts a powerful force (could be God, the Devil, a Supernatural Force) to seek power to bring "good" / "order" / "justice" to the world. A deal is made, the hero is granted infinite power, but for every action the hero takes that enforces the good / order / justice, an opposing force of equal weight will be created, encaptulated by a person chosen by the hero. Essentially, the more power the hero uses to "do good", the chosen person would exert the same amount of power for the opposite purpose. So this story essentially plays on the futile struggle this hero has to get into - whatever good he does will bring chaos somewhere else - where he can't control. However, the real concept I wanted, is to play on the chosen one being the hero him/herself - I've actually reverse engineered everything above. So here's the overall concept - the hero has been granted infinite power, every action he takes will be accumulated and "stored" until he stops, where an opposing force will begin its work by "the chosen one". The journey of the story will essentially be the hero's attempt to use this power to bring order into the world, only to find chaos building immediately after - in repairing the chaos, using a greater power, he creates greater chaos and it esculates constantly until the hero can no longer manage it. At this point, the hero chooses a new person to be the chosen one, himself. This is kinda where I left off because while I like the concept, I haven't got anything solid in terms of developing the story further from it. I guess I just wanted to get this idea off my chest. I'm not really asking anything from anyone. I'd be lying though to say I'm not interested in anyone's thoughts. What I'm curious about is, whether anyone would be interested in taking up this idea themselves, or just the theme, and perhaps we can do some stories in contrast to each other and see what everyone comes up with. I don't usually deal with the concept of "good" and "evil". I only see "different perspectives" in people that lead them onto different paths - I've certainly not typed the word "hero" so many times in a minute. This idea just intrigues me a little because it has to play on this very concept of good and evil, and juggling the balance between the two to develop a story out of it. Anyway I best end post.
