Silly Sunday: Let’s Write a FanFic Together! Part 3! What is the First Conflict/Resolution?

Okay, getting minor traffic on these posts, but I’m having fun! And I think I can keep doing these endlessly, maybe with a shorter pause in between? Or all combined into one post? I don’t know, I’ll keep fiddling with it.

Okay, here’s what we’ve got:

Hero: Middle aged animal lawyer Shahrukh Khan

Heroine: Divorced single Mom high school teacher Tabu who is traditional but wishes she was modern

Setting: Modern India

And Courtney’s BRILLIANT future plot idea:

Shahrukh is a lawyer who specializes in animal abuse cases. Tabu’s ex got her dog in the divorce, but is being a bad owner to it. I’m gonna say not abusive, so not that sad, but like he locks it up outside at night which makes the dog whimper which upsets Tabu’s kids when they see it. Tabu’s divorce lawyer has no interest in helping her with a dog custody case, so she goes online and finds Shahrukh, impoverished passionate animal rights lawyer.

  1. Jumping off from Courtney: Tabu is skeptical about the whole “animal lawyer” thing and Shahrukh is a serious activist for animals in India; he’s never handled a divorce before. She goes to his office with her kids, and leaves them with the secretary. She goes in to talk to him and they eye each other skeptically. His dog is under the desk. She tells her problem and he does that thing they always do in movies where they write the amount on a piece of paper to avoid saying numbers of money. She looks at it and it’s super high. She explodes at him: How can he charge that much? He’s just a–scoff–animal lawyer! And her kids are really distressed and he’s taking advantage of a poor single woman! He explodes back: Does she even know what happens to elephants in this country? He works tirelessly for little pay for them! If a rich diletante wants him to argue in her divorce, she is going to make a generous donation to those elephants! Tabu is slightly mollified. Shah Rukh’s dog comes out and puts his head in Tabu’s lap and Shah Rukh notes how much she likes him. Tabu’s kids come into the office and Shah Rukh shows them happy baby elephant pictures. Their eyes meet above their respective children and animals and they smile slightly. Tabu says she’s a high school teacher and can’t afford his fee. Shah Rukh says he will discount it if she will make a poster about his elephant initiative (she’s an art teacher). They shake hands. Fade into the musical montage of them having cups of tea, looking at elephants, and playing with the kids and the dog.


    • I love this! I love all of this!!!!!! You win, it’s going in the next post and we will see where people take it from here.
