I figured I could spin this off with a question about a rathar large piece I'm writing. I need advice on how to go about setting up an evil company in the post-war GW universe. I have already named the company and have some ideas. (Any major ideas are top secret, as this piece isn't going public for a while.) However, I need help with chemicals and their uses and possible combinations, any general ideas of how to make a seemingly good company plot to take over both the colonies and the earth, and any advice on how to keep everything legal, or at least appearing to be legal, to keep the Preventors from being allowed to officially move in and close it down. (There's a reason for that... you'll have to read it when it comes out. ^.~) Anything concerning chemicals, space travel/weaponry, secret alliances and legal company expansion would be much appreciated. Oh, and just for further information, it's a non-profit organization. Thanks, and looking forward to whatever you guys come up with!
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh.*sucks at plot in general* I'm sorry T___T I hope lots of people will join and help you, lol. *brainstorms in the meantime* Good luck! ♥
Hahahaha, me too. This piece is killing me! To be stuck at 11,000 words is not fun. >.
Aww! Just kill them off and be done with it 8D
Just as a thought possibly two chemicals that are dangerous together but seperate perfectly harmless ie: amononia (sp) and Chloride. Both are sold as cleaners, Chloride being bleach but together they make a toxic or near toxic gas. So if the company manufactors both for a seemingly innocent use with the potential to put them together at some point. What do you want the chemicals to do? Wipe out ppl? Melt buildings? Method would tie into the reasons for taking over the world. Going with something research oriented might work as it would give a perfectly legit reason for playing with chemicals, bio weapons ect. Non profits are usually geared towards services of some kind. I would think the type of company would be dictated by the method. ie: Chemicals at the group home would be suspicious, but an enviromental lab checking the influence of pollution on rats, not so suspicious. They are usually run by a board of directors and have a lot of audits and such that are required each year. Is the board in on it? Hope that helped some.
Oooo, yeah, that does help! The chemicals will do a number of things. Mostly, be deadly. But more than that, they need to kill people and blow stuff up. I plan to have a number of chemicals involved. It's a human rights organization, so it would be perfectly normal to check out anything that would be detrimental to humans as well as have things onhand for helping people out. And hmm... is the board in on it... I'll have to think about that, though that would lend quite a bit to my plot... *Huggles* Thanks a lot!
YW. Glad it helped.
i would call it UMC after the United mining corporation, you get them every now and again in science fiction and they're always evil, and they usually have their own police force called the UMCP. (Look at robocop)there's a lot they could be doing which is quasi legal, look at the abuses done in asylums for one, it could be a perfectly legal company with one rotten egg in a high position, just because he is abusing the company doesn't mean everyone is.Batman ordered bits from here and there so that no one would realise what he was making, they'd probably do that, and most chemicals when mixed create unholy terrors.If you want i can talk to mrjohnsonscat about this, she's just about finished her chemistry doctorate but she'd be a bit funny if i didn't approach her, it would be pistols at dawn.
Okay, anything would be a big help. ^___^ *Ponders possibilities*
i had another idea, thank you Stephen Donaldson. He has this series called "gap" and in it they went into a sort of subspace for very long distance space travel called the "gap" but some people got "gap sick" and they short circuited, spaced their ship, killed themselves, and were fine once they were out of gap.anyway they created this technology to stop it, a sort of chip, i think he calls it hardwiring, where the people are on a remote control and can be switched off, made to enjoy something repulsive (he actually writes a rape using the device) or something caused by the release of chemicals in the brain...what if they developed a device like this, a sort of device for curing we'll say mental illness, but it can also be used to induce euphoria, everyone is given their own control device, so far so normal, but what if there is a master system that could turn people into zombie like things with the flick of a switch, like an on off device, if the remote was sensitive enough it could make people fight, attack, rampage by overloading them with rage.and at first it would look like a system failure because they wouldn't advertise a master control unit.imagine zero in control of that!I'm happy to talk about this by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) because as you know I'm entering too.
That's a really interesting concept! Hmmm... the possibilities...Do you have AIM? ^___^And you're still beta'ing for me, yes?
of course, i just forgot, you would have sent it to me, i would have betaed it assuming i had agreed. Oh my memory, I'd beta anything if you sent iti do have aim, but i'm crap on it so you must forgive mebut my signin is email@example.com
Hehehe, okay. I'll remember that!
