So my muse came and told me it had another great idea...

Muse: Heyeeee! I just had another great idea!
Me: Is it going to lunch?
Muse: Who cares about lunch. You should do a Tarot serial!
Me: ?
Muse: Create a cast with some spreads, then use a single card or maybe three to influence scenes.
Me: I see.
Muse: That's all you have to say? This is an awesome idea!
Me: it would keep wordcount going.
Muse: I'm still going to bug you about the other idea too.
Me: of course you are...

Now partly I'm a little worried that my muse decided to enter sounding like a Ree from the Eva Fic, Nobody Dies. I'm not sure if I'm up to having a Ree in my life. But this does seem like it could be fun. Now the current serials I'm reading are fantasy or urban fantasy so I'm thinking something science fiction-y.

I don't have a paid account, so no fancy clickable polls for me, answer in comments instead. Strictly a reader advisory poll, reserve the right to go off in any direction, (blah, blah, boilerplate here) but which possibilities sound good to you? Multiple answers allowed. Further comments welcome.

  • A) Adventures of a Tramp Freighter

  • B) Official exploration ship

  • C) Independent exploration ship

  • D) How'd we get on this spaceship?

  • E) One of the above, but fantasy adventures in space

  • F) ________________ (fill in your own idea)

I am most partial to Adventures of a Tramp Freighter. Stuff with smugglers or regular traders just trying to get the best deal they can! My big gripe with space trader games like Elite is that they rob all the romance from space traders by turning into just a set of numbers, buy low, go somewhere, sell high. There ought to be a lot more to do with talking to contacts and making get-rich-quick deals or at least opening new markets, high-priority missions forcing traders out of a set loop, emergencies and distress calls with which to assist, crew having their own lives, possibly said lives causing difficulties for the trader...

I generally like science fiction and spaceships though as long as the ships aren't just the technological versions of fantasy horses, just there to take the heroes from place to place. Care-and-feeding-of ought to figure into things.
