I have to bow, however reluctantly, to your logic.

  1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
  2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them.
  3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
  4. Post to your own journal.

Shall we give the poetic coffee machine its chance at glory this time round?
One of those obscure centuries-old cults has a ritual: Once every hundred years, on the night of the winter solstice, the chosen one must stand at a particular place (where ley lines converge) and will become an inspired bard and prophet.

... Except that since the last ritual, an office block has been built on the site, and the mystic powers end up being bestowed on the coffee machine. Hilarity, as they say, ensues.

(... why were we ever talking about a poetic coffee machine? It does ring some bells, but I can't remember anything else about it. Although, silly question, how do we get around to suggesting just about anything on LJ, heh.)

It was a spare prompt I came up with for the original version of the meme back in 2010.

Science fiction: The first non-human artefact has been discovered, and it's big: city-sized or bigger. A scientific mission is sent to investigate it, but they're not the only ones racing to discover its secrets...

Is it bad that somehow "non-human" and "city-sized or bigger" has me thinking less Doctor Who or Stargate-esque, and more H.P. Lovecraft and "The Nameless City"?

This could be pretty awesome. ^^

As usual, 1066 And All That tells it like it was:

With the ascension of Charles I to the throne we come at last to the Central Period of English History (not to be confused with the Middle Ages, of course) consisting in the utterly memorable Struggle between the Cavaliers (Wrong but Wromantic) and the Roundheads (Right but Repulsive).
Charles I was a Cavalier King and therefore had a small pointed beard, long flowing curls, a large, flat, flowing hat and gay attire. The Roundheads, on the other hand, were clean-shaven and wore tall, conical hats, white ties and sombre garments. Under these circumstances a Civil War was inevitable.
