Just for Fun:
The short story I'm currently working in is about the New Year's celebration for the year 2100. I'm trying to think of ways to make it the most epic New Year's ever. I admit, though, I'm a little stuck about that. ^_^;; What are some ways to make it a memorable party? I'd very much appreciate any tips and feedback, thank you. :) Besides/in addition to the cool outfits and masks my characters will be wearing. :) :P
vilent walerMake it so that at the stroke of midnight a meteor will hit the Earth, and only they can stop it by shooting a laser into the air at the top of the Empire State Building.
Holograms that give you the ability to be at one party but appear and interact at several others. Celebrities and musicians can appear "live" all over the world.
All Guns SparkingEvery rock/metal band on the planet gets together to play one ultimate song. The last note — played at the stroke of midnight — not only features a thousand electric guitars wailing at once, but also fires irresponsibly large fireworks into the sky with enough force to make the night look like daytime.

I like the sounds of the fireworks. :) Hopefully we'll have better luck than Francis, Reese, and Malcolm. ;)
Bump. I just had a thought in regards to the cool outfits I mentioned. What do you think Raquel Welch's silver dress was made of to achieve that "polished" look?
Here are the outfits my characters will be wearing. Quite a few of my friends liked the looks and descriptions of them, and I hope you guys do too. If there any cosplayers out there, take note. ;) Oh yeah, just so you know, there'll be a couple of spoilers in there. Anyway, enjoy. :) 1. Demetrios Outfit:

Dapper GentlemanWell, if it's 2100, why not indulge in futuristic forms of modified champagne? The beverages could come in all sorts of colors and flavors, and allow all sorts of strange effects through the power of SCIENCE. I'd drink a drink that would automatically make my voice resemble Christopher Walken's, if it were a festive occasion.

Hmm, multicolored champagne? Now there's an idea. Thank you. :) Now I just need to figure out which flavor is synonymous with which color.

If you're still taking suggestions for celebratory effects, then perhaps worldwide artificial aurorae, created by firing off massive streams of charged particles in the upper atmosphere. It might start with a bright flash of blue-green at the stroke of midnight, and then settle into a sky-spanning light display, perhaps even synchronised to the music of the parties below.
You just made my night. :)
In addition to the multicolored and flavored champagne, here's the rest of the menu that I thought up for the event. Enjoy. :) Food & Beverages Entrees
Hey Brother Mycroft, I have some ideas as to your multicolored champagne suggestion. I hope you like the sound of what I came up with. :) Red = Cherry
Pink = Strawberry (I know strawberries are red too, but strawberry-flavored stuff sometimes turns pink)
Orange = Exactly What It Says on the Tin
Yellow = either Lemon, Pineapple, Mango, or Peach. It was a hard choice. ^_^;;
Green = Kiwi
Blue = Blueberry
Indigo = ???
Violet = Plum

Wolf1066Just to screw things up, make the colours absolutely unrelated to the flavour to subvert Exactly What It Says on the Tin. Yellow could be strawberry, Violet could be orange etc. "I'll try that orange champagne. WTF, it tastes like Kiwi! Wild! This is some freaky party, huh?" Even go as far as having different random flavours applied to different colours so, depending on what bottle it came from it could be nearly any flavour (except the most "logical" flavour). "Odd, I've been drinking green champagne all night and so far I've had peach, banana, orange and strawberry..."

Dangerously Genre Savvy since ages ago...
Now there's an idea. Thank you. :)
Here's another one I thought of. I was thinking of some cool ice sculptures besides the usual swan. Then I thought "Wait a minute, this party's going to be epic; who says they have to be made of ice? :)" Going with that, I came up with things like dragons made of ruby, diamond gryphons, platinum unicorns, and sapphire mermaids. Oh yeah, before I forget, the Stone Cutters have a zoo now as well. :)
I had another sublime thought recently. What could we have to countdown to the New Year? I need something cooler than the old-fashioned disco ball sliding down a pole. I appreciate the feedback. :)
I thought to bump this thread because I have good news, everyone. Today I finished my short story, for now. :)
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
