    @Psycho: I knew it wasn't an exact mash-up, but it's probably as close as you'll ever get to one. Unless someone wants to write that. If you go with the theme of 50 Shades, no skill required.

    "Too Many Characters Doing Too Many Things At Once."

    original characters don't steal

    I very much tend to do the David Wong thing where I give my projects funny working titles while they're still percolating, but unlike him, I actually change the titles before any of those projects see the light of day. That said, some title that will never see the light of day: "Clearly, I Have Made Some Bad Decisions" and "Highway To The Twilight Zone" (with bonus sequel "I'll Take You Right Into The Twilight Zone").

    "Every man a promontory"

    "The dull purgatory hiatus of Dave Non-symbolic Surname"

    "The incredible wizarding adventures of the vampire in love with a zombie in a cliched apocalyptic scenario in a love triangle with a werewolf who received lycanthropy from a genetically altered wolf because that's science,right? Bad science makes more sense to audiences than magic, doesn't it?" - that's a working title.

    @G.S. Williams: That last one would be a best seller for sure.

    "Bestseller for sure" definitely not a likely title for me.

    I'm leaning towards "Planet Z Twilight Games: Diverging Wolf Teen" for the other one, for brevity.

    Nodding and smiling softly; the semi-colon story.

    From Winter's Ashes: A Detective with nothing left to lose, against a Necromancer with a world to gain.

    Happily ever after: a story of beauty and fulfillment

    Anathema, a web serial about the effect superpowers would have on our world.

    Sorrows of Mangala
    The saga of the post-settled, post-terraformed Mars in the 2200s and 2300s. 80% of the inhabitants are from India, mostly Dravidians, thus they call their world by its Sanskrit name, Mangala. The planet is entering the birthing pains to remove the shackles of colonialism. Based loosely on the independence movements of Ecuador and India, and would cover the multiple failed revolutions, as well as the formed and failed republics, dictatorships, and monarchies, starting from a united Mangala but then quickly fracturing into a world of complex politics like Earth. It is going to be a story of loss and perseverance through the eyes of certain Mangalis and Terrans.
    I don't know if I will ever get around to it, but it's been a neat idea for me to write. My idea is that Mars eventually gained independence, lost it, gained it, lost it, and finally gained it but not due to might of arms, rather due to how expensive it eventually became for Earth governments to maintain over a century of war with their daughter world.

    "Well, that was straightforward"

    A story in which the main characters manage to actually accomplish a goal without getting distracted by life, changing circumstances, or the unforeseen consequences of their own actions.

    That last one sounds like a quick read ^_^
    A place for me to inflict my writings upon an unprepared and unsuspecting world!

    I dunno. Worm managed to make jumping straight from one goal to the next last for a million and a half words.

    My style seems to be "establish the major goal in the first chapter, spend the rest of the story distracting the characters from that goal".
