Two ideas I had while working on the Ami/Yume/whatever-it's-called-now project:
A Daydream Believer
(Okatukin vaiety) - through some kind of Phlebotinum or something similar to a time travel machine - learns that there really are
infinite alternate universes in parallel dimensions, and gains the ability to travel through them.
Thus begins a journey through tens of bizarre alternate universes to find the world of his fantasies, where he really is the character he's always suspected he was.
The "tone" I had in mind is a weird
adventure-comedy full of Surreal Humor
that that pokes fun at its This Loser Is You
protagonist, and I don't really think it would work as a Darker and Edgier Deconstruction
with a lot of Cerebus Syndrome
like my pet project.
Another major theme in that-project-I-never-shut-the-fuck-up-about is reprenenting different aspects of someone's personality through Anthropomorphic Personifications
However, I had an idea for a series where instead of just slugging it out in the main character's dreams
, said parts of their personality become real.note
The personifications are human, and he wakes up one morning to find they've all moved into in his house
. The series would be a strange Dom Com
featuring the main character trying to go about his daily life while his inner child
jumps all over the furniture and breaks things, his idealized self
excels in everything he fails at, treats him like crap, and keeps bringing home random women, his depression
keeps eating up everything in the fridge and locking himself in the bathroom to cry, his repressed anger
tries to kill people, etc.
