How about this:

Every civilization has its own Apocalypse. The Apocalypse was never meant to end the world. In every civilization's end, there is a certain power or more that pulls the strings.

It may be more fantasy than sci-fi, I don't know what the boundaries are. Sorry if I'm wasting your time here.

Just steal from star wars / mass effect. You could use a Dune-esque or Battlestar Galactica-esque premise, as those tend to pan well to audiences.

I, Hostile, and Glados approve.




It is a horror novella however. I don't like horror. I was traumatized during a scene in the Matrix [1] where Neo had no mouth.

Imagine this; You wake up for your normal day routine. You brush your teeth, get dressed, eat your breakfast, and kiss your wife/husband on your way out the door. You get to work that way you can support your family and make a living. You deal with your boss's shit and fix other peoples problems that have been dumped on you. You get home check the mail, surprise, there are more bills. 'How am I going to pay them this time?' you say. You find out your kid is in jail for doing drugs and resisting arrest. Your father just died from cancer and your mom is in the mental ward. You go to the bar to drown your sorrows in booze and liquor.

Now, to you, this is your real life. But unbecnounce to you, you and your life is but only a fun filled show of sceptical. The hurt you experience, the pain you endure, the love you bask in; all a lie. You are but a product of entertainment. A real person who feels emotion created by other men for their entertainment.

The setting would be in the future where cloning and genetics are boundless. People are created and observed in zoo like settings. People come to watch you struggle.

Kinda long but its my contribution.

Rockets ahhnilate cities across the globe. Refugees cross paths in attempts to escape the invasion. The starship coming without warning, without peace from the immense darkness that is space. They are extremely advanced and there is no hope for survival. Nobody knows were they came from and why they want to destroy you. Eventually all government breaks down and the invaders asssume control of the planet therefor accomplishing something nobody endemic to the world had accomplished. The only thing you know about the terrifying and cruel invaders is their name: The United States of America.

People were very warlike in the 15th Century. If they got their hands on modern technology then there could be war.

I've always had this idea for a plot ever since i tried writing.

(Title)
The Gods of Terra

Set in the surveyor vessel TFSV Delhi, a crew of 30 encounters an alien world. The first act would center around exposition, character building and reaction to the discovery of this planet that has alien life.

The second act would revolve around coming down to this planet to discover that the inhabitants bear an uncanny resemblance to homo sapien, and that they appear to be in the middle of the bronze age. They would envelop themselves in the many cultures they find, and start spreading information to ease the learning curve before the iron age. Eventually, they come to understand the political world as well as the religious world.

The third act would center on growing tensions of the crew as they slowly lose their bearing with the knowledge that the gods they speak of here resemble tales of old Earth god lore. The crew eventually splits themselves into 2 factions, the Fakinays and the Worstii.

The forth act is the climax, with an intense battle in the skies and on the ground, with the usage of drones and robot ground forces. In the end, the surrounding environment and the 2 factions they were fighting for are left severely damaged. The remaining crew reconciles, only 10 left. As they leave the planet, they scan objects on their radar that would suggest vessels on a guided course. The crew decides to ignore this and head home.

The epilogue would be a reviewing of the after action report, just before the report becomes classified.

Feel free to pick a theme or 2 from that, but the central premise is that we discover a civilization that is in its development period.

How about this:

Have you ever heard of Tecumseh's Curse on the US? In the battle at Tippecanoe, William Henry Harrison defeated Tecumseh's Native American tribe. Tecumseh's brother, the shaman of the tribe, put a curse on Harrison and the US. We now see a pattern. Every President elected for a term in office in a year that ends with a zero (1820, for example) has died within that term. The only two exceptions are Ronald Reagan (1980) and George W. Bush (2000). Some say the curse has lifted when Reagan vetoed a certain event that would ruin Native American land. But what if a president were to do something bad for the Native Americans? Would it come back?

There are many ways to play around with this apparent curse put on the US.

The main character is introduced after a traumatic event in the past. This event will later come back in sequels. The main character may also face said hardship in the first few chapters. The readers are introduced to a wise man, who trains the character to become a far greater fighter, so he can combat a great evil mentioned earlier in the same "meeting the wise guy" section, or the guy who caused the main character the injury in the first place. During this training phase, he also meets a girl who he falls in love with him. The bad guy kidnaps the girl and knocks out the hero, and mortally wounds the trainer, who also trained the bad guy many years earlier. On his deathbed, the old guy tells the hero where he can go to get more power to beat the bad guy, but he's gotta complete three challenges. After completing them, he assaults the bad guy's fortress. After being captured, he is taken to the bad guy's throne room and is about to be killed, but the bad guy tells him how to kill him, and he kills him after grabbing the girl. They escape, have sex and the novel ends after talking about how lucky they were to win.

(works for almost anything, and parts of this are in nearly every novel. In teen and above, the girl and hero surviving is optional, although at least one of them should survive.
