Write A Plot From The Title (Writing Game):

There is a race of Martains that are reptilian and therefore their gender is not determined genetically but rather by the environment in wich the young are incubated. The current prevailing opinon is that mail offspring are unfortunate accidents with little value to society (and perhaps the fault of a bad mother). This book is a biography of the three revolutionaries (a doctor, a psychologist, and a politician) who wrote the first well lade out argument for the value of males.

Fred is in charge of tearing down an old factory. He tells Frank about how his grandfather called the place a "cuckoo's nest", and that it supposedly hid some very dark secrets. Rumors that his grandpa didn't believe until he saw a ghost, one that flew over the cuckoo's nest.

System Shock

The game? Too easy. I would use the title for a serious, probably dramatized story of high level politics, something in the stock exchange when they crashed or a political scandal.

And Justice For All.
The mark of a good story means not feeling like The Angry Video Game Nerd hearing it.

Girls Like Robots

 61 Maple Platoon, Thu, 21st Feb '13 2:32:44 PM from Middle of Nowhere,Canada
Time Traveling Robot without a cause
One day, a magician created a wish-grating statue. He put in "Girls like robots" in hopes that he could get a hot wife, but the machine read that as "Girls' Like Robots". He threw away the creation because of this error, but it was then found by a man who wanted to know how to get the woman he loves to notice him. Of course, when you wish to a statue that you were the type of man who easily gets girls who was "told" that girls' like robots, you would probably find yourself made out of metal and wiring. Hilarity Ensues.

The Harbinger of Strange
A horror story about a Freddy Krueger-like monster that inhabits the dreams of sleeping children, feeding off of a kind of magical energy exuded by those asleep while masquerading as a friendly, cuddly creature called Twinkle. Twinkle gets greedy, however, and causes a rash of child deaths in small-town America. The only one who can stop him is a psychic with the ability to enter a person's dreams... Who also happens to be a convicted pedophile.

Knights of the Old Republic
You need an adult.
 63 Ars Thaumaturgis, Thu, 21st Feb '13 4:51:22 PM Relationship Status: I've been dreaming of True Love's Kiss
An Arthurian tale featuring an order of knights dedicated to the ideals of the Roman Republic, by then long-gone but not forgotten. Faced with a Britain that, unified under Arthur, leaves no space in which they might establish a New Republic, they cross the channel and embark upon a decades-long quest through France, seeking a place for their dream.

Eventually all of the knights have either died or abandoned the quest. One last, however — by then old and grey — both survives and holds to the quest. At last he finds himself travelling through a trackless forest. He comes upon a pair of saplings that have grown up crossing each other, creating a crude, pointed archway. Through this arboreal gap the light seems brighter; riding through in curiosity, he meets a beautiful lady who he had not seen before crossing. She hails him and asks his quest; he answers, and she smiles. She tells him that her country recently lost its leader, and that its people were desirous of change; that it was ripe for the establishment of a republic.

For a moment hope flares in the old knight's breast, until the memory of his age crushes out the flame. He tells the woman that his frailty leaves him in no position to found a government, that he had held to the quest more out of a moral refusal to relinquish what he held to be right and true than out of hope of success. But the lady laughs, and with a gesture bids him look into a nearby still pool. He obeys, and to his startlement see reflected a man in his prime, just as the knight had been in his day. He turns to the lady, and she simply smiles and offers to him her hand. He takes it, and, leaving behind his horse, goes with her into her country and a New Republic built on the memory and hope of the Old.

Gawain and his girlfriend, Anne set out on a long mission to meet the legendary hero, The Green Knight. Along the way they meet treacherous Bankers, corrupt police officers, and oblivious politicians in a long and heart warming journey across the plains of Eastern Europe. When they finally meet The Green Knight, they are disappointed to find that he has been dead for 436 years, and they are consequentially arrested for attempted grave robbery.

The Harbinger of Strange
A Twenty Minutes into the Future social parable in which a lonely man, long on smarts but short on social graces, programs a digital wife for himself. Unfortunately, his digital wife is a little TOO lifelike, nagging her husband endlessly, denigrating him for his poor personal grooming and getting jealous when he spends time with his other gadgets. His attempts to erase his wife repeatedly fail, and she only comes back nastier than ever—and cranky about him trying to erase her, to boot. Eventually, resigned to his fate, all our henpecked hero is capable of saying is, "OK, computer."

Aron different. He is a genius 10-year-old boy who's family doesn't understand him because he doesn't think the way other people do. Eventually he decides that he must be an alien. Perhaps some kind of cuckoo that was left by his parents to be raised by humans, maybe as some kind of experiment, or maybe all of his species' children are raised by other species. His parents indulges fantasy because they simply don't know what to do with the boy.

An Urban Fantasy story revolving around a close-knit support group of therianthropes, centring on "Brother Bear" (who is, naturally, a werebear); the story is a philosophical musing on the travails that such entities might have in modern society.
