Most of you probably remember that I do ebook covers as Augusta Scarlett, and most of those covers tend to be paranormal romance, as I get clients when they read other books I've done the cover for, then contact me because they like my work. So I've done a lot of shifter covers.

And that inspired my new random story idea generator, the Shifter Romance Generator.

Many thanks to Lia Silver, who is responsible for most of the more, um, interesting shifters. ;)

The protagonist of this story is a boy disguised as a girl who has a cloak. On the way to the story's conclusion the protagonist encounters a woman in men's clothing. This person has a black leather trenchcoat. Plot elements include zeppelins and a sense of humor, and at least one character is motivated because their country is not yet free.
I'm seeing some sort of alternate-universe steampunk WWI spy story here.

Have been adding motivations and sentence structures to the Cool Bits generator.

Examples so far )

Now to start adding [ profile] rachelmanija's long list...

I was just checking my stats pages and found that someone used the Cool Bits Generator to produce a drabble for [ profile] 100_roadtrips that features Kanzeon playing with the generator. XD Meta-inspiration!

As I was messing about with a copy of the Cool Bits generator yesterday, it struck me that the one aspect of story it was missing was the why of things, in short, character motivations. Now I'm sure that there's lots of you out there who have cracktastic Cool Bits for *why* people do the things they do in stories, so list 'em off here! I'll dad them to the generator and pop in a few new sentence constructions to use 'em. :)

(In other news, my body can't decide if I'm getting a cold or if it's just serious allergies. Pfui. I hate that state of non-commitment.)

ETA: Examples of the sort of thing I'm looking for. HOWEVER: please make sure that these are cool bits for you (whether for heroes or villains), the sort of thing that will make you clutch a book to your bosom and giggle madly, and not just any motivation you can think of. :)

because they are diverting attention from something else
because of an addiction
because of an addiction to drama
by lust for an unattainable object of desire
out of a desire for vengeance
out of a desire to impress a lover
out of a desire to impress a superior
out of loyalty to a commanding officer
out of professional ambition

Your story is a romance between a knight and a priest. The lovers experience danger and rescue and being in heat while in a Western setting.

Totally Vash/Wolfwood.

ETA Your story is a romance between an assassin and a gentleman. The lovers experience crawling and homosexual panic while in an opium den.

Dude, I totally want to read that. Someone write it.

ETA2 The hero of this story is a historical setting who has prominent cheekbones.

Um. Fixed that.

...placed in a separate post from the announcement so I don't have to scroll through the whole thing in every email notification to the previous post. :)

Some NC-17 elements in the text )

I've again done what I threatened to do and come up with a Kinkfic Random Story Generator, based on [ profile] eliade's List o'Fandom Kinks (NSFW for text).

I pulled over 1400 elements from that list, and am mostly surprised, judging by the contents of the list as a whole, how comparatively innocent most of the prompts end up. The primary difference between this and the Cool Bits generator is that the kinkfic plot elements end up focused specifically on character interaction, instead of having a wider range.

I don't want suggestions for this one, because I spent way too much time on it already. Sorry. :) Feel free to add your own kinks to stories you pull from it.
