    "I'm leaving." Must be the first words spoken.
    A boyfriend/girlfriend cannot say it to his/her significant other.

    "We're going to be okay... You know that, right?"

    A couple is having problems because they're together (like Romeo and Juliet, for instance) - problems that are too big for both of them to handle. A is trying to assure B that they're going to get through this, but B isn't so sure. Maybe they really shouldn't be together after all.

    Focus on the trust they've confided in one another, and just how much they love each other, in comparison to how much their love is hurting them. Focus on their different opinions. A thinks they shouldn't let obstacles break them apart, and he/she's willing to sacrifice anything to be with B. But B doesn't want to see A getting hurt because of him/her.

    Imagine you're sitting at home with some friends.
    You're just trying to have a fun night in.
    You decide to play a board game.
    What happens when that game turns to reality?

    I've got one!

    Okay, there's a family, must have a teenager and at least two parents, but can have more family members. The teenager has some supernatural secret (i.e. is a vampire, mutant, witch/wizard, ghost, superhero, etc.) that the family finds out about and they aren't too happy but want answers. I would like the story to be about a very awkward conversation between the parents and the teenager after the parents find out.

    It would also be really awesome if the parents were hunters of whatever the teenager is.

    The first thing to be said must be: "So, you're a..."
    And it must say what the teenager is and how the parents find out.

    I'd really like to see someone put dialog and a story to Green Day's American Idiot OR 21st Century Breakdown, using characters from the album, and/or characters that were added in the American Idiot play (Tunny, Will, Heather, etc). Use the story protrayed in the album to write it.
    If you want to write according to the American Idiot play, say that in the description so I don't get confused (like "Why the hell is Know Your Enemy in here?")
    Oh and don't combine them. I've seen people try to combine the albums, having St. Jimmy and Gloria in the same story. That's a no-no.
    If you have any questions, message me.

    I've been meaning to write something based on this quote for awhile, but haven't been able to come up with a worthy storyline. So I'm sharing it with you all. =)
    That's amazing. I'm trying it(:

    "Sometimes goodbye is a second chance."
    Write about the aftermath of a break-up.
    Focus mainly on the feelings of the person who has said "goodbye" in the relationship, and whether or not they should go back.
    Emotions should feature heavily in this piece.

    Lyric credit: "Second Chance" by Shinedown.
    This was my idea on the prompt. I didn't totally follow it, but I didn't go away from it either. I have mixed feelings on the matter, but I tried it any way. I hope you guys like it. =]

    I've got another one!

    There is a couple, and one of them is a vampire. They are completely alone and the vampire has a thirst attack. You can decide what they're doing at the time and whether or not the other person knows. They have to be in love, though. I'd like a bit of drama, too. ^.^
