Choices, choices

Since the Story-a-day marathon isn’t too far away, I thought I’d zip over to the Seventh Sanctum to check out the generators.

I discovered… the History Scrambler! I may have to use this, I’m afraid. It takes figures of history and changes their… character. Here are ten that I generated:

Jane Austen – Witch (It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be bespelled into choosing whomever I please as a wife.)

Carl Jung - Computer Simulation (So that explains it!)

Ulysses S. Grant - Sexy Bishounen (Uh, oh, that creates all manner of possibilities.)

Boudica - High Priestess (Well, as leader of the Iceni…)

Cleopatra - Action Heroine (I figured she was already, but a different kind of action what with Marc Antony and Julius Caesar all over her like white on rice.)

Beatrix Potter - Stereotypical Romance Novel Heroine (Um… Her life’s story already reads like a romance novel.)

Eleanor Roosevelt – Biker (Yo! Ted! Show us yer wheelie!)

Saint Dominic – Wizard (Bwahaaha! Oh, the irony!)

Agatha Christie - Vampire Hunter (Whoa, cool! Agatha would thump Anita and slaughter her hisem!)

Paul Revere - Exotic Dancer (Lends new meaning to “The British are coming!” Oh, wow, did I say that out loud?)

There are many more generators that can inspire a short story. The problem is what to choose.

Had to laugh at the Paul Revere one! Some of these could be a lot of fun.
