I have crazy, vivid dreams at times that come out of nowhere (as in, I didn't watch a movie/show or read a book or news story that was related in some way) and sometimes I think they would make good stories or scripts. The latest was horrifying and I honestly was disgusted when I woke up, but I have read the likes of Dean Koontz and Stephen King, and watch American Horror Story, so I know I'm not the only one that has a mind like this. So the story line stemming from this dream is: A woman (MC) is having marital problems and is looking for a way to forget about it. She goes on vacation with her friends, and they end up meeting a couple of strange guys (uh oh, cliche). They end up partying with the guys, MC being the responsible one and not doing anything reckless (boring, right?). She and friends have a great time, but before returning home, they learn that one of the women that had been at the club with them has disappeared. MC is a bit disturbed, since the missing woman seemed to have been close to the men they were hanging out with. Once home, MC keeps in contact with the guy she "hit it off" with and develops a bit of a thing for him. They remain friendly. Shit keeps hitting the fan at home with her husband and MC is stressed out, but she is trying to make it work. It's discovered that the missing woman was found dead in the same hotel MC and her friends had stayed in. It is considered homicide. She finds out that one of her friends is going back to visit one of the guys, and this instigates contact between her and her crush. He suggests he's disappointed that she isn't visiting as well, but she has to work. He surprises her by showing up at her work,and she ends up spending the day with him and he drives back home the same day. Her friend ends up not returning from her trip. MC and third friend worry together, and she is reported as missing. The three guys are rounded up for questioning, but are let go since there is no evidence. Friend does not turn up. MC's crush swears he knows nothing, he saw her for all of a few minutes the night she arrived, but then drove to see MC the next day, so he was gone the whole time. MC starts snooping, and becomes suspicious of her crush. She does some research and finds out that several other women have disappeared from the area he lives in, all of them being connected to his friends, and mainly him, somehow. He owns several night clubs, and even a strip joint, and it turns her off from talking to him. She is certain that he knows something about her friend but there is nothing for the police to go off of. She ends up (and I haven't really developed how it happens) being kidnapped, and is driven to an unknown place and locked inside a room- where her friend is also being held and tortured. There are signs that there have been many victims in this room and that their captor is masochistic (this part was the most vivid part of my dream- so it's probably going to be gruesome). First off- is it overdone? Will someone read this? While I plan to put more into the "thriller" part, is someone going to find this interesting? Second- I'm struggling with where I want the ending to go. I already started writing bits and pieces (I'm a jumper, I write scenes when they come to me) and I've developed pretty "emotional" bonds between both the MC and her husband, and MC and her crush. On one hand, I would like to make MC's crush the culprit and have MC go back to her husband and work shit out. On the other, perhaps MC's crush is the one to discover what his business associates have done and rescue her- and therefore leading her to leave her husband because of how unhappy she is. I'm a bit of a romantic at heart and have a thing for the underdog/outsider. Thoughts? Rip me apart, if need be.
