Title/Plot game!

Okay, so, I forget what this was called before and who made it *heh* so... I'll (try) to explain!

Someone will give a fake book title. Then, someone else will give a synopsis of that book (no limit to how long) and another title. And so on and so fourth.

If I find (or someone else finds) the thread, I'll post it here!

Here's the first title: 47 Lies

47 Lies is about the life of this person, and along the book they reaize there are 47 (Big) Lies in their life. For example, their "Mom" and "Dad" aren't their real mom and dad, so that would be two lies. What a lot of the lies are based on is the fact that the MC's is acually from a group of people that steal magic from a different, magical, species, who think they are above the humans (kotLC vibes there, I know). The group lives uderground, in secret, and many of their values are different than what the MC is used to, so the MC struggles to understand the group in the begging. But, slowly but surely, as the MC learns more about who they are, their knowlege, values, even their understanding of right and wrong, all gets flipped around. In the end, they join the group and realize how everything is temporary, so they might as well live in the present while they can.

Hmm.. now I want to make that a real story!

Can I post the plot on the regular writing thread?

Okay, next title:

Sure, you can post that on the regular writing thread!

And to the story~

Ariana lived her whole life on the sea, and loved every second of it, but when she dies and becomes a siren, she begins to hate it. The sea made her die! And now she's trapped in the very thing she despises. But after meeting a mermaid/man/person (?) named Waves, she realizes that she can't run away from her past and this is her life now. She can make the best of it. Then, something unravels. Waves turns out to be someone, who, in life hated the sea, and anything to do with it. Who is this "other Waves"? Why did they hate the sea? And why, after knowing all of this, does Ariana have a crush to them?

The Story~

Quin is an angle. It hadn't always been that way though. It all started with the river...that deep, trecherous river. Quin had had been facinated by it's burbling glory. He had sat beside the rushing brook and stared into its water, awed by its glory. But he had leaned to far. The river had consumed him at once, grasping him with its speeding wake and pulling him down...down...down. 

He wasn't ever totally sure what happened after that. All he had waken up without a body, unable to touch or speak at all. But when a glowing halo of light shines around Quin's presence, he knows at once that he died. And that he is now an angle. 

Years and years had passed since then, but Quin had never aged. His spirit remained the same, only growing more and more jealous as the years pass by. Quin knows how jealous he has become. He imagines tripping the little children who come by the creek, making them feel the pain he has suffered. Slowly, he begins to see his halo is dying. His time on Earth - it is about to end. 

Until he saw the stone. It appeared out of nowhere, glowing a beautiful emerald green as it popped into existance. Quin forgot that he couldn't touch the Living World, and rushed to grab the stone. For the first time in years, he got a hold of something. Slowly, before his very eyes. Wait...eyes? Quin reached up to touch his face. Yes...Yes! He had come back to life! He looked at his fingers and danced. He had a second chance. 

But what if Quin hadn't fallen in the river...what if it was his own best friend that leaped from the bushes and pushed him? 

And worst of all, what would Quin do when he realized that his parents were lying on the verge of death?  

And that his very presence was their stealing lives?

Where the Missing Go

A peculiar story about a girl without a name, who travels to the edge of the universe with her best friend, an orphaned but magical boy. When she gets there, the boy is taken away, and the girl must rescue him with nothing more than a few magical trinkets–a loose coat button that multiplies every time you tap it, a fireproof oriental fan, and an endlessly long belt.

At the End of the Rainbow

A story about a rather ordinary version of our world that one day changes. People begin mindlessly chasing their childhood dreams in an almost zombie-like manner; grown adults shamble off, ransacking stores in desperate searches for toys that haven't been sold since they were children.

As for our protagonist (we'll say her name is Becca), her and a few friends go on a journey to save their infected friend, who is chasing after nonexistent gold at the end of the rainbow. Along the way, can they save the earth?

(Note: despite dark themes, I think it'd be interesting for the genre of this book to also be comedic; watching everyone believe in unicorns and elves leaves plenty of opportunities for jokes)

His whole town is in a flurry about the missing boy, but he's right here! Can Miles escape the deadly gauntlet that seems to have clenched him in its hold?
