I didn't post last week because it was Mother's Day, so here are the best two over the past two weeks:
ARCHETYPE: The Overcontrolling Mother (Villain, Female)
PLOT POINT: (X)'s disinherited son/daughter, (Y), tries to borrow money from (Z) on the condition that (X) approve the loan.
ELEMENTS: Lost, Prison
ARCHETYPE: The Seducer (Villain, Male)
PLOT POINT: Computer programmer (X) tests his/her new software
ELEMENTS: Beggar, Far Away
These were both combinations of elements that made me cross my eyes and go, "What?" before I came up with something.
I'm finding that the prevalence of romantic entries in the Plots Unlimited book has sort of glued my brain into romance mode. Even when I end up with combinations that don't require it, I often find myself working it in anyhow.
This is not normal for me. Maybe it's the spring. ;-)
