Where wild minds come to rest

I've been in the mood to write lately---spent the last 2-3 weeks working on an original story that is not from my daydreams. It's only one chapter, 7 pages long, and I still don't like it enough to share. Then today I thought, maybe I should try writing a story where I'm the main character. The words should easily flow and sound more natural to me. But what could it possibly be about that's interesting? Hm...perhaps visiting daydream worlds?

I imagined it to go something like this: I suddenly wake up on a plane surrounded by white space. I meet four other people there, who are just as confused as I am. For some reason, we can't remember our names, but we remember everything up to the last thing we did before we got here. The only thing we have in common is MD. From there, we get teleported to each of our daydream worlds, complete with characters and everything. Maybe the purpose is to solve our daydreams so that upon waking in the real world, we don't need them anymore, or something. I don't know. I've only thought about it for like ten minutes. xD

Anyway, you get the gist of it. How could it be changed, or what could be added, to make it interesting? What do we actually do in our daydream worlds? Do we become each other's characters, or are we just written in with our own lives? Do we retain our memories so that we look for each other? If anything, I thought of basing the main characters off of you guys, lol. The DD worlds would also be very different from each other, distinguished by genre, like scifi, fantasy, slice-of-life, historical, drama...or even visually, like cartoon or realistic.

Here's some random stuff that popped into my head: Like what happens if one of us dies in a DD world? And maybe there could be a mysterious person thrown in, like an extra MDer we didn't meet at the beginning. Maybe he's been stuck wandering in daydream worlds long before we ever showed up.

Or maybe it could be the other way around, like our daydream characters come to life?

Or maybe this idea should just remain as a fun little daydream? Lol~

If any of you have ideas, just throw them out there. I'm very curious to know what you think. xD

I had a similar idea.. I posted it somewhere.. but I can't remember where. (I think in Turning MD into Art somewhere). But mine was that something crazy happens - accident, magical, whatever and the person is placed into their DD world. But maybe that not all is as it seems and they have to learn to deal with struggles in the DD world just like in real life. The character gets to live their adventure life but also learns to appreciate their real life as well. Kinda corny but I think its what us MDers suffer from occasionally - wanting to live in a fantasy world  instead of taking steps to make this one better. :) I think its sounds cool. And a fun and subtle way to introduce the world to MD and our elaborate minds haha.

Thanks Jenna, the idea bummed me out for a second that's why I had to add the mini happy ending!
Laila- maybe they could have to solve their dd dilema in order to become real. Or they could be made real and then have to struggle to survive in the real world...just like we have to do ;) The two that fall in love maybe they would have to search the real world to find each other. The idea of all of them mysteriously on a plane makes so many things possible, a very addicting starting point for brain storming! Maybe they "land" in different dd worlds, each person having to navigate the group through their unique dd worlds?

I love that idea, Sunshine! I initially thought of making two MDers fall in love and something bad happens to one of them (like dying in DD, or they choose to stay behind in a DD world), but if one of them turns out to be imaginary, that would be quite dramatic indeed. I like that better, actually. It's like his/her job was to guide the others or watch over them, so he/she pretended to be one of them (like in the anime Bokurano, lol).

Another awesome idea, Jen. Were you thinking of that as being the premise or the twist at the end (like we all discover we aren't real?) Well, both sound really good. xD

Wow J Noland you juat blew my mind with that idea.

Or maybe we are really someone else's dd characters and we don't really exist at all, but some benevolent force decides to allow us life in our chosen dd world (ala pinocchio?).

That sounds awesome! I like Sunshine's idea thoguht.

Comment by Sunshine on December 27, 2011 at 7:11pm

WOW that sounds soooooooo kool i would so read that!!!

Ok here is a random idea but what about having one of the people at the beginning being from someones DD and one of the characters have a romantic relationship with him/her and they later find out he/she is not real and they can't be together *DRAMATIC MUSIC*.  I probably have many more ideas but that is all i can think of right now. :)
