Suggestion post for new novel. (CLOSED)

  • Post author:

We’ll be wrapping up Mothership in maybe three or four more chapters. That means I’ll start a new main novel after that. I’d like to start planning it in advance, so it’s now time to settle on a story.

I have two ideas in mind that I would like to write. One is a family that inherits a haunted painting of the Palmer family. The mom hangs the painting in her home office, and things slowly devolve from there. The other story I had in mind is about a son that tries to follow The Guide, but fails. It is VERY awkward with his mom after that. But slowly, she starts to think things over. She can’t stand to see how crushed he is, and she initiates things.

Those are my ideas. What are some of yours? Pitch me your idea for a full-length novel. Keep your pitch to THIRTY words or less in the comments below. We’ll hold two rounds of voting. The first will select the top two ideas. The second poll will put those two along with my two ideas and will select the winner.

    1) A collection of short stories centered around an historian investigating the Stone. It tells of the Stone’s various owners through history while the historian’s family is corrupted

    2) After finding the Stone, two siblings start a competion to see who can seduce the largest number of relatives in a month

    3) The main protagonist finds a special camera. His female relatives become his models and their bodies and minds are slowly corrupt

    4) Divorced and depressed father finds the Stone and uses it to turn his life around, especially regarding the relationship with his family

  2. wingandaprayer1959

    I would like to see you continue/expand “Foreign Exchange” or a new novel along the same lines.

    Mom purchases a new robot to help out around the home. Teenage son finds out the robot has a few extra, off-the-market settings that might help mom be more…open to some of his personal needs. And then when sis comes home from college, of course the robot is available to…help with her “needs” as well. And pretty soon the son is using this wonderful new machine to “help” all kinds of tense, uptight neighborhood women.

  4. ThomasEGB

    Son tries to protect his family from his vampiric mother while also desperately resisting her supernatural advances.

    1. neoquan

      Or what if a hot teacher, that’s secretly a vampire, turns one of her students, who submits the women in his life under his thrall.

  5. JTass

    I’m totally on board for the Palmer Mansion, Next Generation story.

    Alternatively, how about a prequel to Journey of the Mothership Wilderness with the backstory of whoever programmed the AI on the Errand to behave as it did?

  6. Gar48

    I rewrote my suggestions so they could fit the thirty words rule:

    1) MC is the patient zero of a global pandemic, that causes phisical and mental changes in the infected. Like “Something in the water” the story could show us how the epidemic impacts other characters and their families

    2) MC has the power to inadvertently travel back in time, meeting his females relatives in the past (including those who died long before his birth). He ends up sleeping with them at various points of their lives, causing changes in the present

    3) Shy MC develops a far more ruthless and secure split personality, dedicated to seduce the women in his life

    4) A post apocalyptic story? I think it is the only genre you have never used. You could have the MC findd the Dark Stone and use its power to create a new society

    5) A story set after all the main seductions took place, following an amnesiac MC. The women he seduced have now to deal with him not remembering them or their relationship while the MC has to investigate about the mysterious circumstances behind his memory loss

    6)MC finds artifact that teleports him to a reality where incest is legal and his female relatives are far different. Moving between the two worlds he discovers he can alter one of the realities if he uses the artifact in the other

    7)I will be honest, i wouldn’t mind if you turned “My mother’s secret identity” into a full novel

  7. Gar48

    So i have seen now about the thirty words rule. Would it better if i rewrote my comment to be shorter?

    1. Rawls

      Yes, I don’t want to edit the ideas down.

  8. Ultrasound7

    I mean I would love to see the Palmer story if only to get a glimspse of the new generation of the residents of Palmer Manision, but than again I would also like to a continuation of the Curse of the Shadow.

    At the moment my best original idea involves an Elf/Drow Prince of an Elven Kingdom that is coming under threat by a gowing Ork hoard is set to Marry the only princess and hier of a neighboring human Kingdom to earn thier favor for thier armies assitance agasint the orks, counting on the fact that the Humans do not posses any means of casting Magic save thier Court magciian and thus Elf prince would make such an enticing suitor. However the Prince’s abilty to cast magic is rather average by elf standards especially compared to his mother whose lineage involves some of the greasest scholars of magic thier Kingdom has ever known, furthermore his father is more favorable to his eldest child the beloved warrior princess of the kindgdom. The Prince winds up finding a mysterious magic stones that unlocks great magical powers, but only in exchange for collecting energy fueld by lustful acts, the more taboo the acts the greator the power outout and longevity of the magic power he can wield.

  9. Darkthoughts

    Multiple families are kidnapped, taken to an isolated location and their memories wiped. A new goup is tasked with a trial to get through each time. For each trial one person in the group gets their memory back and the plot unwinds how they deal with that trial and the implications of what they have already done. The real fun is when they realise that the memories they have been given might not be theirs to start with…

  10. scrappp

    No matter the story please no more magic insta-incest sperm or any other insta-incest magic for that matter. It’s extremely anti-climatic. Maaaaybe if it’s used as slowly as with the more stubborn of the moms in “There’s something in the water” but it still went “insta style” from there.
    By the way… There’s a dark movie from 1960-1980 with a father, mother and son on a deserted island. You might wanna check it out. It’s dark and under the radar but it was not a second tier movie!

    1. rk24010

      Agree. Would love a non-magic seduction from Rawls.
      What is the name of the movie, also when you say ‘dark movie’, do you mean ‘hard to find’ or ‘disturbing’?

  11. jowholmes

    Succubus moves into a new neighborhood and takes the young man next door as her lover. She uses her magic to sexually improve him. Second hand exposure to her magic through him corrupts and transforms his family.

  12. iacub

    I like the idea of using the Guide. It provides a framework without feeling stale.

    My idea was to portray a young woman in lust with her mom. She comes upon the Guide and tries to adapt it to not only break taboos, but to break someone out of their normal mode of sexuality.

    I really love your lesbian incest, but is so rare. I would love a full story where this is the main focus.

  13. Gar48

    Frankly i would love to see the idea of the painting being developed into a story (albeit i admit the other idea is original and a bit different from the previous stories).

    Regarding the suggestions i have some ideas:

    1) A virus story. MC is the patient zero of a global pandemic, that causes phisical and mental changes in the infected. Like “Something in the water” the story could also show us how the epidemic impacts other characters and their families

    2) MC has the power to inadvertently travel back in time, meeting his female relatives in the past (including those who died long before his birth). He ends up sleeping with them at various points of their lives, causing changes in the present including the way his mother, sisters ecc. act around him (bonus point if some of them exist only thanks to him traveling to the past)

    3) Shy MC develops a far more ruthless and secure split personality, dedicated to seduce the women in his life

    4) A post apocalyptic story? I think it is the only genre you have never used. You could have the MC findd the Dark Stone and use its power to create a new society

    5) Why not a story set after all the main seductions took place, following an amnesiac MC? His mothers , sisters and the other women in his life have now to deal with him not remembering them or their relationship while the MC has to investigate about the circumstances behind his memory loss and the incident that caused it.

    6) I will be honest, i wouldn’t mind if you turned “My mother’s secret identity” into a full novel

    Otherwise vampires or reality alteration because they are cool concepts

    1. scrappp

      “4) A post apocalyptic story? I think it is the only genre you have never used. You could have the MC findd the Dark Stone and use its power to create a new society”
      yes!

      1. rk24010

        ‘Post apocalypse’ sounds fresh. I think your ‘split personality’ idea sounds awesome as well.

  14. Schunn99

    College age guy, gets an ability to create various glowing womb tattoos ( like in hentai) on a female’s body, leading to body parts growth, incest, pregnancies. As girls start to complete for him and his ability to change flesh.

  15. Schunn99

    A 21 yr old guy gets a dark stone as a gift from grand uncle, and he uses it to claim and breed his hot classmates at his local college and breeds his two 18 yr old twin sisters. Including breeding the two former queen bees at his high school both cheerleaders who bullied him through high school.

  16. 7Myxzptlk

    As aliens save humanity from a cosmic event, the remnants are placed in secure habitats around the galaxy until they get a new Earth. In one habitat, a young man finds this new Eden affords repopulation opportunities with his beautiful mother and sisters.

  17. 7Myxzptlk

    After an accident renders him homeless, an artist moves in with his rich sister where his 18yo niece tries to seduce him, as she is a fan of his.

    1. 7Myxzptlk

      Seems there are some downvotes. Can I ask why? It’s a short premise so Rawls can have more leeway to write as much as they can imagine.

      1. rk24010

        I gonna hazard a guess and say that this space has a majority of mother/son sub-genre fans. Brother/Sister and Mother/daughter gets traction as well. But the rest, especially the father/daughter or any kind of the older man/Younger woman incest is not most people’s bag around here.

        1. 7Myxzptlk

          His sister would be older, MC would be like early 20s
          There are instances of kids having a baby sibling when they’re in high school.
          Sister would be 36-ish, MC about 22-25, then his niece at 18.
          Not too old. When the guy is too old, like 20+ years, then it gets creepy.
          Too old is too much, while some years older to play on a brother complex is just right.

  18. 7Myxzptlk

    After finishing a decade-long quest, a 24-year-old mage hero returns home to reunify his kingdom, as his male relatives shadow-puppet the throne. However, he must reconcile certain issues with the women of his family if they are to help him save the realm.

  19. Fred31267

    Use the premise from “The Stone in the Lake” but develop the character more, have their relationship evolve over time, not instantly. Maybe clitoris grows but otherwise normal female anatomy.

  20. Khitrii

    Most stories start with the son corrupting his family, which brought me in, but what about the mother falling first and corrupting that way? Or a father corrupting his wife then daughter?

    1. Italian10inch

      My idea is to have the wife, who is board with her bedroom life, buys the stone and exposes her husband to it. As planned his cock and sex abilities greatly improve. But then something goes wrong, he losses interest in him wife and goes after his daughters. Meanwhile the son discovers the stone and as expected has big results. The mother/wife having gotten use to the stones charms falls for the son. Later the son and father competes for the girls with the son finally winning out.

  21. Evil Modder

    Personally, from the two ideas you posted, I prefer the Palmer one.

    My idea is a boot camp for unruly teens (legal age, of course).
    They’re on lockdown because of some outbreak out in the real world.
    You follow their stories as they succumb to a “mystery” illness that makes them all horny.
    This is after one of them finds a strange looking gem while digging in the vegetable patch.

  22. Kuanyang

    While I would love to revisit some of the previous stories, you’ve ended Palmer fairly well. Between a Palmer Painting or a “Failed” Guide story I’d be more interested in the Guide.

    An interesting thing I’ve noticed is that the world of TWT crosses over with Palmer, but includes the dark stone. I’ve also seen you stringing things together in some of the short stories and elsewhere, with the dark stone. It would be interesting if you continued expanding with this in the same way “Heavy Metal” did with the Loc-Nar Orb. It would also be great to see more multi-cultural takes – I loved that Palmer had different cultures – both time period and geographical.

  23. ThomasEGB

    Guy learns he might be his own father, and the father of a lot of his friends and girlfriend, after a Back to the Future-style time travel story.

    1. 7Myxzptlk

      That can’t work given the nature of the time travel. It would have to be an artificially monitored and imposed paradox. Maybe MC realizes after time traveling he’s only the father of his friends & GF instead. Makes it less convoluted, AND adds spicier incest with children in town.

      1. neoquan

        It worked for Futurama.
        If it’s a closed time loop. It works. Predestination is another example of this type of time travel conception.

        1. 7Myxzptlk

          That worked bcuz the story called for it. It happened before bcuz Fry would eventually HAVE TO go back and do it. Predestination upon one’s self is just mind-bogglingly impossible. But a present-tense temporal edit of a past-tense shenanigan can give some better possibilities bcuz it frees the protag of any further self-preservation hell loop mechanics.

      2. ThomasEGB

        Maybe so, but this is all fantasy anyways so we can do what we want.

  24. Lobria

    Also how about a mother and daughter story. You’ve barely touch on that, I feel that would be a nice change of pace from the mother and son. Not that I don’t like it but that’s what I liked about the Elora’s taste of black Magic.

  25. alldragon

    You could continue the curse of the shadow, for example here some ideas:
    1-Emily and Lance return to the city, but the necklace goes with them without Emily knowing.
    2-Chrissy discovers the changes in Lance and she loves them, Emily falls slowly while her son takes her girlfriend in her own house, she struggles with memories of the island and sexual dissatisfaction with her husband … will soon surrender to Lance completely.
    3-Lance, Emily and Chrissy share more every time, Emily betrays her daughter Sam, Emily plans a weekend without a dad, Emily enjoys seeing Sam fall before her son … while Chrissy discovers that her mother suspects something about Lance and her family, Chrissy plans to hand over her mother to her boyfriend and then her perfect older sister.
    4-Lance, Sam and Emily visit Chrissy’s house, Chrissy’s mother is a victim of Lance and his family, while Chrissy takes her sister shopping, while in her mind she thinks how her mother gives herself to her boyfriend and his family as well as the way she and her mother delivered her sister to Lance at the next visit to the Olmstead house.
    5-Lance and his wives are threatened by the visit of their aunts, the younger sisters of his father’s, while his father goes on tour for a few weeks. Sam and Emily frustrated by not having sex in several days inside the house with Lance, they decide to take the plunge and ask Lance to get rid of the annoyances or better yet … that Lance take his aunts for himself.
    6-Lance, Emily and Sam visit the island again, on a private trip to find out a little more, for 3 days Lance, Emily and Sam continuously fuck while Lance get more changes from the curse, mother and daughter are pregnant, Lance finds the shadow treasure and with a blood pact is his. Now is the time to get rid of the obstacles, his father and Chrissy’s father must leave … Chrissy and Sam set a trap for Mitch, accuse him of attempted rape and force him to move to another city and leave them leaving 50% everything to them. Now they sell the house and with part of the treasure they move to a bigger house. Chrissy’s dad was not that difficult, Chrissy and her mother found him in bed with another woman, they get a divorce and 50% of things, but Chrissy, her mother and her sister are leaving home to live with her. Chrissy the Olmstead’s boyfriend’s family, by the way the woman in the bed was Lance’s youngest aunt …
    7-Lance and his women are fine, but the last danger is coming, Emily’s father passed away, Lance and his family go to his funeral, Chrissy and the other women take care of the children, Lance and Sam discover why their mother did not visit her father, being an only child, her father married a very young woman after her mother died, that woman was only 12 years older than her son, Emily’s mother died when Lance was 6 and Emily’s father married again 1 year later with this woman … Now the testament and last will of his father asked that Emily and his family take care of his wife and her mother who was almost the same age as Emily in order to receive part of the inheritance, Emily upset and outraged for so many years now she knew what she had to do … She would welcome these women into her home (Lance’s home of course), but she didn’t want the inheritance … no … she wanted to see these 2 bitches riding her son, being humiliated and begging her to let her son impregnate them, she wanted to see them humiliated and enslaved before her and her son … she wanted revenge for all these years … and if in the process she could have 2 personal slaves for her it would be a lot of fun … plus Lance and Sam seemed to think equal …

    1. 7Myxzptlk

      That was a commissioned tale IIRC, so IDK if Rawls can even continue the plot.

  26. Lobria

    A shame that mothership will be ending but looking forward to more of what you bring. Curious, what about that superhero story you had. I feel that would be a great idea for a huge story.

  27. neoquan

    I would love to see Next-gen continuations of previous novels: Palmer Mansion, The Dark Stone, Serum 42XXL, There’s Something in the Water. I’d love to see how things play out 20 years later in each of those stories.

    1. Lobria

      I agree. Although I would like those as shorts not as full stories.

      1. neoquan

        I wouldn’t mind them as shorts, but I think Rawly should let the story potential determine the story length.

    2. 7Myxzptlk

      Serum 42XXL Epilogue – mom & sister pregnant, having sex, making money off pharma patent on serum, and make many many MANY inbred babies in however long since the story originally ended.

      1. neoquan

        I’d really enjoy reading that from Rawly.

  28. Lobria

    How about a adventurer mother and her son who is bored go find a temple and does something to mother and son. The son is all for it while the mother is slowly corrupted.

  29. BAS

    Family Wedding. MC is Sr in HS. He has 3 older sisters. He travels with Mom & Dad to sister’s wedding, buys a darkl stone charm at a market before the rehearsal dinner, hijinks ensue. Story follows through the wedding and into the next year.

  30. shadowolf660

    Ancient Incubus is bored and gives his power to the protagonist. The protagonist proceeds to corrupt his family, friends, and beyond.

  31. Daoud

    i prefer the painting. i would see another chapter of foreign exchange pls

  32. ArseneLupin

    In an isolated village there’s a peculiar ritual every summer where one young man every generation is ‘sacrificed’ to a local god. This young man undergoes ‘purification’ rituals on a regular basis. Only women are allowed to attend him during purification. It’s isn’t taken seriously- nobody actually dies, it’s all just playacting. In reality, the boy is being taken to a site where his balls are drained by the women of the village. A family from out of town moves in and the young man is selected, with the women of his family sworn to secrecy.

  33. 6u6iou

    A pair of sisters and their daughters accidentally join a lesbian cult together, and the whole family is slowly corrupted. Only one of the daughters can tell something is wrong.

  34. Cart93

    Young werewolf is exiled from his pack by father. He returns and challenges father for alpha position. After becoming alpha he forms a harem out of mom, step-mom and sisters.

  35. heero2020

    A young man wakes up to find out that something happened while he was asleep and no on remembers him. This applies to after he leaves a room, they seem to forget everything that happened when he was in the room. He starts to get ideas, suddenly able to live out his fantasies, but over time, people start to remember everything….

  36. rk24010

    A story about Cain, Abel and their mother Eve and the role a young Day Star played in that whole mess that led to his banishment from heaven.

  37. rk24010

    I’d prefer if the new story is a fresh idea and not a continuation/spin-offs of your existing works. The Enki’s Puzzle was such a fresh take in a saturated genre and I believe it was one of the reasons of it’s success, apart from your great writing of-course. You have enough of a following now that people will come up with the fan-theories and connected stories themselves and post it in your discord. But I understand if you’re looking to establish a connected universe of your works and build upon that. If I have to choose between your two ideas, I’d take the painting one.

    1. luckydave

      I second this comment. I’ve enjoyed Enki’s Puzzle so much because of the slow burn and constant obstacles around the corner each time the MC thinks they’ve succeeded on making progress. So a failed Guide story would be good, in some ways, because it would involve that level of adversity and conflict, raising the stakes and significance of characters successfully getting together eventually. Mostly, I really enjoyed the incremental progress and the frequent setbacks and obstacles in Palmer and Enki; I still read Mothership and Something in the Water, etc., and they’re fun to read, but there’s a certain overwhelming inevitability to them, whereas Enki especially has felt like a wild ride where I’m always excited to see what happens next, and the focusing in on a few characters over so much of the story so far has made for the detail and nuance of those relationships to be much stronger and more intuitive than in the big ensemble stories.
      I’ll also echo the other folks who are pulling for more lesbian relationships, and I think only one person mentioned it, but a young woman growing a penis (or born with one, she could be trans) and corrupting women close to her sounds awesome.

      Here’s my concept: At a public library, an adult teenager attends tutoring sessions to supplement their community college studies. Something magical about their tutor, and sessions get sexual.

  39. Koshnicgarov

    A coven of android females is set on breaking the sex barier between humans and androids, bringing the two groups together, ending disccrimination. The eperiment goes bad (or great, deppends how you look at it).

  40. Koshnicgarov

    Andriod religion sais that sex with humans is forbiden. The next door human family are about to discover why, as one young android girl breaks all the rules.

  41. Koshnicgarov

    No one remembers why, but androids and humans are forbiden from ever meeting again. It tuns out that androids are easaly addicted to sex and their sytetic pheromones make peaople into sex maniacs.

  42. adscrypt

    Boy does favor for a ghost that looks like a young woman but is actually quite old. Link is forged allowing temporary possession. Helps him conquer women in his life.

  43. Koshnicgarov

    In the fitire all sex is forbiden due to diseases. Sex androids service all humans. One boy is immuned. Everybody must have him.

  44. Medic975

    Of the two the Painting appeals more.

  45. MrJK269

    Maybe something like a 30 year old male find a stone (like the one u guys like to write about) and he gets sent back in time to when he was a senior in high school (18) and has to stop his family from ruin, and along the way fall for his mom and/or sister.
    Or so he can just simple relieve the life he wish he had.

  46. Koshnicgarov

    Android family move in a small town. Discrimination ensues. They become close with one human fammily. Androids do not have the concept of incect. The humans are about to have it.

  47. Simon S.

    A cult must harvest sinful pleasures and starts corrupting a small town. Horny young men are easy targets. As more power is gained for deeper perversion the real purpose of the evil cult is discovered.

  48. Koshnicgarov

    In the future all minds are connected to the eachother via computer matrix. An accident makes a boy’s subconcience put ideas in other peoples minds.

  49. Koshnicgarov

    Repurposed sex robots are being sold as housmaids. They were stoped from production because their pheromones were addictive.

  50. Zk132

    I think an earlier episode or linked episodes of the Pleistocene Ring would be a natural. Also one set in a Buck Rogers/John Carter on Mars world. You could throw in cheesy villains. Gilligan’s island, Beverly Hillbillies or Green Acres would a hoot.

  51. Koshnicgarov

    A milatery android becomes centient. Escapes. She meets a large family. Using the power of subliminal images projected from her eyes, she just wants evebory to love eachother and her, so that she is not alone.

  52. viajero

    Mother comes to live with young son and his wife. Relationship develops between mom and son, and eventually involves son´s wife. Family grows with babies from both.

  53. Koshnicgarov

    In the future. A father invents am android sister for his son. She is programed to always make him happy. The mother is unhappy with her marriage. They help her.

  54. np_phreak

    collage dropout son messes with occult stuff, inadvertently causes younger sister to become possessed and grow a penis, she begins seducing female family and friends while son remains oblivious

  55. Shoddinator

    I like the idea of the Cursed Painting you have. You can have it so that each family member has a different “reaction” to it and hijacks ensue.

  56. Koshnicgarov

    In the future. After the death of his wife, an always bussy father invents an android wife. She is programmed to make her child/children happy.

  57. 3353Mailman

    A continuation of the dark stone. With the family and the new girls. What goes on with all the children.

    1. Schunn99

      Maybe continuation with the next generation of dark stone and dark stone interbreeding? MC’s young son breeds his half sisters and young pretty fertile neighbor’s wives and their daughters

      1. Schunn99

        Or MC dies and leaves the stone to the young which he uses to corrupt his high school breeding teenage girls, and his hot high school fresh out of college teachers

  58. bostant

    Johnny’s grand uncle dies and entire inheritance goes to him. All females in the family chase him for the big bucks

    From your ideas first one sounds better. I loved the Palmer family
