Just rip off some YA fantasy garbage.

>>7667057
A depressed college student hires an assassin on a Silk Road like site to murder himself because it's a more exciting way to die than suicide. He uses this as an opportunity to experience life in a new light but realizes his own fears and insecurities are so ingrained in him that he was happier in college. After failing to rediscover himself he returns to college and awaits his death. A school shooter interrupts the assassination and the main character walks away unharmed, returning to his miserable life.

>guy who hires assassin tells him "you'll know who I am because I'm the most depressed guy in my class"
>assassin kills school shooter before he can shoot anyone

If you're in this situation, just freestyle it. Make yourself a nice cup of tea, think of a good first sentence and see where it takes you from there.

After the shooting he realizes it was assassin who thwarted the shooting. He comes away feeling smug, like a secret hero, like he personally saved everyone but he is their secret protector.

>>7667057
I wrote some garbage while bored a while ago but its an interesting idea with fun true facts and its fantasy-like. You could polish it or re-write it for all I care for your course.

>>7667290
it was funnier before you explained why

It wasn't an explanation, I thought I would add more to it. Maybe you were one step ahead of me. Sorry senpai.
