What if...?

I'm drawn in by the inherent conflict of the mug's character in the third idea, and I like that the drawing reinforces the fact that it is a literal mug. I wonder if and how it would communicate with the people drinking/washing/looking at it. Despite its anger does it still feel the need to inspire? What's unclear is what the rest of the world is like. Is this the only talking object or is the word filled with animated objects?

what if...

I like second idea, as it immediately forces some fantasy and begs the question will they fix it, can they? I enjoy how these kids will be thrust into action and wonder what is the nature of their reality if they can interact to strongly with the sun. are these kids superpowered, or super unlucky? What is unclear is what is broken about the sun, no light? no heat? smells like sulfur now?

What if?

I like how the third idea is so simple but with many implications, and that it could exist alongside our reality since the oceans are so unknown. I wonder if they have any special abilities or if they can communicate with humans, and if there are friendly towards humans. Nothing really unclear at this stage, just full of possibilities.

S McIntyre - What if…?

I personally enjoyed the second idea the most, as it allows for your creativity to run and jump around, while keeping the basic premise really simple. I wonder what kind of antiques are around in the store, and the variety of ghosts that could be there. Will they evil or benevolent, or simple frozen in the past unaware of the present. One unclear thing is the nature of the phenomenon, did it happen suddenly, is it just this person that can view/interact with the ghosts?

What ifs - click me!

The alien reality show idea sounded most compelling to me because it seems to want to contain both wild imagination and some sense of hard reality. I wonder are humans the hosts of the show, stars, viewers, or not even aware? I think the variety of directions this could go makes anything unclear another possibility.

What if..

I can see all these ideas shining, but for some reason the idea of a weapon that is compelled not to fulfill its purpose sounded cute. I wonder about the warrior and the two's relationship. Will they ever be able to fight? What's unclear is why the warrior would stick with such an impotent weapon, does it have amazing untapped power?

What If?

I enjoy all three ideas, but the second made me smile the most. I liked how it seemed that neither the burglar nor the cat had any expectation of the cat being the hero. I wonder if things would play out in a Home Alone kind of way, or more fantastical, with the cat undergoing a great transformation, or something totally different. I'm left wondering about the witch, what does her character have to lend to this story?

Chuck's What If

I enjoy the pure open-endedness on the cat cop question, and how the story could be dark or warm or gritty or silly. I wonder most what makes a cat want to serve and be dogged. Because of the questions simplicity, there's nothing unclear, just plenty unknown, like are there humans in this story?

What if? Dentist / Afterdeath / dog and wolves???

I like the possibility of different kinds of dogs fighting verbally, especially about identity. With this high level thinking in the dogs and wolves, I wonder about the other animal's thoughts and feelings. Are there any humans in this story?
