Not familiar with the contest. Is this kind of like our OWC's? So there has to be a scene that takes place in a crater and somehow incorporates pepper spray?


That rug really tied the room together.

I thought this was a short story comp.

How about your kid in the wheelchair being tormented by other kids. They threaten him/her to push him/her over the edge of the crater to his/her death. The wheelchair kid tries to spray the other kids with pepper spray in defense. The kids all get some spray on them, but not enough to hurt them. They get pissed off and decide to torment the wheelchair kid even more. Very sad...

The pepper spray however, attracts some mountain goats or some other animals who come roaming down and attack the bad kids and push them over the crater edge. They don't harm the wheelchair kid because he does not have any of the spray on him.

Wheelchair kid saved by wild animals and bad kids get their medicine?

In case you want some more ideas to mull over....

A woman happens upon a crash-landed spacecraft and one very deadly alien. Epic battle for survival ensues, ends with her pepper spraying the creature (or flaming pepper spray?).

A group of ants bringing back food have to get across a sidewalk divot (which to them is a giant crater). Enter bratty kid with his mom’s pepper spray looking to kill some insects.

A crater opens up seemingly overnight in the backyard of a cult church. It starts to spout a substance that burns churchgoer’s eyes thus evincing a coming apocalypse. Everyone rushes to prepare for “the end” including ceremonies and speeches and good old poisoned punch to help them “ascend”. Then, just when everyone’s about to drink, there’s a knock on the door… it’s a city official explaining about a collapsed sewer line that may have caused some property damage.

A disgruntled former employee of a pepper spray manufacturing company steals a bunch of canisters to help rig an explosive device. Now, he’s headed to company headquarters for revenge. The explosion results in a huge crater.

Here is my first one. I am writing one on an ant like MarkZero suggested as well but not done with it yet. If you can read quick that would be great. Can email me notes if you want girlbytheshore@hotmail.com.

Thanks so so much.

Thanks for the ideas, guys. I am Dena's partner on these. We wrote 2 scripts and kind of tossed a coin which to enter. Dena wanted to do the ant one too, but she ran out of time. Too bad, that one would have stood out as unique. It's a perfect one for Dena to write too!

Wish us luck. We need to finish top 2 to be in the money.
