Post your idea for my NON-CLICHE short story that will make me known for ever amongst my teachers and class mates. Any and all ideas will be extremely helpful.
Thank you /lit/.
W. O. Jackson is, after having lead an empty life, convinced by his pet frog too shoot up his uni. The story takes place during a single day where you get to see Jackson go about his daily business, shitposting on vietnamese rug-weaving boards, pissing in bottles, masturbating to childrens cartoons, and talking to his frog. Towards the end of the day Peppers (his frog) finally convinces Jackson to bring vengeance to the society that shunned him.
It will get you flagged and arrested if you're percieved to be that sort of person irl, which I hope you don't. Written well enough, most people wouldn't even understand what's going on. Don't be a faggot, Anon.
Dunno mane write about a nigga whos tryna do fine but suddenly feels some kind of shiet that pushes him 2 pursue a meaning for his shit knowing thyself and shit you know but when he finds what he was lookin 4 its so fuckin awful and lifebreakin that nigga wishes he had never found it
How about a vapid shallow man who goes through a extended period of self-discovery and enlightenment only to realize at the very end of it that it was all a horrible lie/misunderstanding. His epiphany spurs him to commit the most grotesque and inane acts out of anger and the sense of futility of his journey.
The anticlimax is a sort of trashes/destroys the virtues/morals/principles and "knowledge" that various authors and self-help books intend to give you.
The anti-climax could also be in the form of the journey of self-discovery backfiring at the protagonist horribly (maybe for comical effect?).
eg. He visits tibetan shrines and explores buddhism and returns as an enlightened human being ready to live a life of peace only to find that his car got stolen, apartment vandalized and occupied by squatters because he didn't use proper security, his gf cheating on him because he forgot to leave money for her and she ended up doing gangbangs to earn. He forgot to file for taxes and gets arrested and raped in prison.
This entire faux-cliched-journey of "self-discovery" melts like snow in an oven when reality and responsibility (along with a prisoner's dick) grind him down.
The inner peace he learnt appears to him as the kind of peace that 12 year old girls feel they acquired when watching a sunset at an overcrowded beach.
At the end he's left an empty and destroyed shell of a human being rotting away in prison who is confused about anything and everything.
The anticlimax MUST be very very short as compared to the drawn out journey of self discovery.
The goal is to impress the reader of the journey of self-discovery and then laugh at him on the last page dismissing all of it as bullshit.
The more impressive you make the journey of self-discovery the harder the anti-climax will hit. And it should hit in a short unexpected burst. A page or two at the end.
Kinda like my nigga said below
Self discovery (or meaning seeking) travel because some kind of angst disrupts his ok life
What he ends up discovering happens to be fuckin awkward or awful, he was way more comfy (even if he cannot go back to the happy worried bout nuttin days) whe he was just angsty about the truth or meaning
Its like dunno
Religions or myths must be based on the terrenal and mundane so they can aspire to the absolute
Nigga cannot stand the truth or God, he really just wanted to be a follower and wait, not really absolutely knowing God/truth
Real simple, three acts, man vs. nature.
Act 1: Main character finds their wife in a goat farm with a male goat's foot up her ass, and it repeatedly heat butting her in the puss.
Act 2: Main character fights goat with a shovel
Act 3: Goat is now dead, reveal is that the wife was enjoying it and upset that her goat is now dead. Main character beats wife to death with shovel. The REAL reveal is that the main character is a WOMAN. This will get your feminist classmates puss' wet as shit.
Since you've made a thread intended to get help but with the ulterior motive of ridiculing others and being a contrarian cunt, I should give you credit for falling for this bait.
Also, I think it's laughable if you think your sarcasm is in any way edgy or humorous,
the character of your self discovery is the piece that you are writing. As you type it out, it becomes more and more self-aware about itself and you. The character talks about being itself being graded by your prof and reaching fulfillment of it's purpose in life by getting the highest grade that is or some shit.
It ends with him electrocuting himself because of the electrical cord that was up there too, because he liked the warm feeling.
Kind of like....ironic or some shit, I dunno. Just make the point that the universe is a cruel ass bitch.
sexually frustrated gay loner must choose between literally buttfucking his future self who arrived by time travel and ended up as his prisoner. explore themes of narcissism, ego, perversion and taboo.
1. fucking his future self to relieve his crushing sexual frustration and then hopelessly trying to prevent his future rape
2. not doing that
(maybe: to his surprise leads to the future self raping his present self because the future self was sexually frustrated too)
conversation between them could be interesting idk.
Ok main character is some guy named...oh let's say perry. He inappropriately hits on one of his fellow extra actors on a film set. She complains, and the casting director pulls him into his office and yells at him and says he'll never work in this business again....UNLESS he does the casting director a little favor. Let's say the casting agent's name is umm....Sandy Gallagher. So Perry has to whack off Sandy, and Sandy sucks Perry's dick.
The story is narrated by Don Barris, who has been making fun of Perry over this incident for almost 30 years.
character discovers a monstrous ancient cave.
devastated by regular floods. character notes the toll these floods have taken on the cave inside and it's dwellers and how they survive.
character is my dick. cave is OP's mom's vagina.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume this is related to the HSC?
If so, fuck you I will take whatever idea you get from this thread.
A story about how a guy discovering the convenience of cheating in life /plagiarism when he posts his final exam paper question on an anonymous board, submits something and gets an amazing grade.
You're daring the prof checking your paper to call you out on it. They can't do that tho because it's a piece of "fiction"
A story about two men that meet on an online literature board. They request a meet-up at a spot around Castle Hill. When the main character arrives, however, the other character is dressed in all leather and has a whip holstered at his hip. He takes the protaonist captive, who soon falls into the leathery grips of Stockholm symdrome. They get mixed up in a year-long BDSM affair until the other character cheats on the protagonist, causing him to build anger to the point of murder.
Explore themes of sexual freedom, anger, insanity, the difference between lust and love, the mental effects of Stockholm syndrome
The last woman alive works in a laboratory that can increase the density of an object by slight amounts. she says 'what the hell, I'll make my self into a black hole'. She sets the dials to their highest settings and enters the machine. As she gains density, she feels a moment of pain, but then the bliss of death. However, she feels something forming within her, like an explosion. She feels as though she has created a universe and within what seems like a few moments, she watched the beginning and end of the universe, highlighting the blips of life she sees spring forth. At the end of it all, she feels like a mother or something like that.
