Before I Sleep
Just a couple of paragraphs.

I woke up this morning and was particularly relieved to realize that the_gneech is still alive, as I dreamt last night that he had died. I was particularly upset that there would be no more entries in his LiveJournal. Then I lost my backpack on a subway car, but we won't get into that.

Y'know what I'd like to write? A series of short stories based on the exact opposites of common plot cliches. Examples would include, say, a man falling for a woman who does not in the slightest remind him of his long-lost lover. Or -- oh, this is a good one! A peasant raised as royalty! Or how about a fantasy story where dwarves are taller than elves? OK, that one's a little silly.

I think I'd read and supply gratuitous amounts of love if that last one was ever written. Not just on basic principle, either. :D

Well. Maybe at first.

A person who uses his amazing powers to fight crime and avert calamity...and doesn't mind everyone knowing who he is. ("Yeah, that's Kent Parcker, P-a-r-c-k-e-r. No need to thank me, it's reward enough to have helped people and to take full credit for it, earning me tons of respect and admiration, particularly from my girlfriend.")

Hee! Perfect.

I also like the peasant raised as royalty though. Wouldn't that be a bummer?

"Er, yes, you were swapped at birth for a royal scion so that he would be protected... but now that the threat to him has gone, you can go and back and live with your real family. Isn't that nice?"

I would love to see a "peasant-raised-as-royalty" story...

Damn you, you've given me a plotbunny!

Nothing at all wrong with dwarves being taller than elves. Some elves are pretty tiny. ;)
