Write A Plot From The Title (Writing Game):

A thriller about the "invisible gang" ruling over Arbor City, a gang called Centipede:

"We caught another one of them Centipede bastards. Not sure if it even matters. We catch one or two everyday, and they still show no signs of slowing down. It keeps on crawling, no matter how many legs we cut."

A weird sci-fi horror-thriller about one of the guinea pigs in an experiment to create a hive-mind entity amongst humans. One of the side effects was the test subjects being able to survive and still have a degree of individual sentience even after their craniums were removed.

Locked In
 79 Alma, Mon, 25th Feb '13 11:37:53 PM from Coruscant Relationship Status: You cannot grasp the true form
The Harbinger of Strange
A psychological piece about a man who is both locked in and locked in, as in locked in a room. He is forced to contend with a double whammy of terror—not only is he completely paralyzed, he has no idea how he came to be in his current situation. He simply woke up in a sterile, featureless, pitch-dark room, totally immobile. The only thing tethering him to reality is the sensation of some bench or table pressed against his back. As the days tick by, he realizes there must be something feeding him intravenously to keep him alive. All the man can do to entertain himself is run endless circles in his mind about who has captured him and why, but the answers never come. The narrative becomes progressively less cohesive and sensible as the man's mind breaks down and his grip on reality loosens. Finally, he dies, and the perspective of the narrative shifts to some bizarre alien creature in a control/observational room just out of sight behind a wall. The omniscient narrator muses about the fact that the man's tormentor, and the answers to his dilemma, were literally not more than three feet from him the entire time.

The Harbinger of Strange
Animals become intelligent and form a kind of Animal Farm-like society in which the different species each occupy a certain place in a hierarchy. Goats, and other farmyard animals, fill the role of spies due to their history of living in proximity to humans. A new Cold War begins in which humans and animals are both afraid the other means to declare open war. The story focuses on a team of human operatives assigned to track and keep surveillance on a group of goats. The goats meet regularly in secret locations and all signs point to them planning something big. In a hilarious twist, it turns out the goats are meeting to play cards.

The Sign of Four
"And every life is a special story of its own." —The Stargazer, Mass Effect 3
i seee youuuu
The police try to track down a notorious serial killer known only as "Four". He leaves no signs of entry or exit, leaves no evidence, and cleans up after he's done, leaving a clean house with a cleaner corpse. If it were not four the position in which he laid the corpses- into, of course, a 4- there would be no evidence he did it. The only connection between the first victims is that they all were born and, consequently, died four days apart from each other. But then, members of the police department start getting bumped off, one by one…

Heresiarch Command

Devastation of the Silent Resistance
Only Death Is Real
Daniel Wycroft is the last of the espers, and thus it falls on him to continue their crusade against the world that destroyed them. However, Daniel knows that he cannot hope to win by force, and thus resorts to a "silent resistance"— basically, he will go into hiding, with his goal being able to pass on his genes and properly raise the next generation of espers. This is threatened by various things such as cocky non-believers on internet forums, a sneaky feline and the cute girl next door. The esper thing is also just a delusion.

The Sly Company of People Who Care

A rare mix of a pseudo-psychological comedy musical about the goings on of an international think tank run by a megalomaniac with insanely nice hair who's watched Monsters, Inc. too many times for comfort.

Flowers for Algernon

To the waking world I say,"Aha!"
 99 Ars Thaumaturgis, Fri, 1st Mar '13 6:32:26 AM Relationship Status: I've been dreaming of True Love's Kiss
A sweet romance about a very shy girl with a deep love for a boy — a close friend of hers — named Algernon. On every relevant noteworthy day — his birthday, Christmas, Valentine's day and one or two more — as well as any time that he's unhappy, worried or stressed, she leaves for him a little bouquet of flowers and a note telling him how wonderful he is and expressing support when called for.

The plot then alternates between the two of them, she trying to keep her love a secret and he trying to discover the identity of the mysterious "secret admirer".

He eventually spots her leaving the flowers; after a brief debate with himself he tells her that he knows that it's her, and after a brief and somewhat awkward conversation they start a romantic relationship. The epilogue jumps forwards two years to their wedding day.

The Tempest

 100 Alma, Fri, 1st Mar '13 7:36:27 AM from Coruscant Relationship Status: You cannot grasp the true form
The Harbinger of Strange
1812. There is a region of the ocean that is constantly rocked by violent storms and hurricanes, called the Tempest. The Tempest has been going on for hundreds or even thousands of years and has defied all attempts to measure or explain it. It has been a fixture in mariner's lore for as long as any sea-dog worth his salt can remember and the object of countless tales of fantasy. Some claim that at the centre of the Tempest is an island where untold fortunes can be found. Others say it's the nest of a monster, or the tantrum of an angry sea god. There have been many attempts to sail through the Tempest over the years, all of them failures, leaving few to no survivors. But there's one sailor who's determined to succeed where others have failed...
