a few story ideas

I love to read but can't write for shit so here are a few stories I would like to read but can't. Somebody please help.

1.A My Reward type story where the main character gets awesome powers from freeing an energy being. I have read three separate stories but each had things that ruined it for me. In the first story everything the MC used his powers for was sex and nothing else. The second was better but went off into BDSM pretty heavily which just doesn't do it for me. The third was actually pretty good but incomplete. I would also like to see the government try to control someone with almost unlimited power.

2.A time travel/immortal story. The MC gets sent back to the stone age and eventually finds out he is immortal and travels the world to be at historic events and record history which he stores in a secret library. He also picks up useful skills like fighting, blacksmithing, carpentry, sailing and such along the way. He does NOT try to jumpstart the industrial revolution or give guns to cavemen. He sticks to and masters the technology of the time.

3.A genie story that gets finished.

4.A MC that can enter any book, story, game, tv show or movie. He can choose to have any powers or abilities from within the book ex. that he enters. He cannot enter anything that he has written himself or made contributions to.

5.A MC finding a buried spaceship story that gets finished. Preferably with powered armor.

6. A MC that can travel to different dimensions at will. Meets species that are not human but close enough to have a good time.

I would also like to see someone with almost unlimited power vs. the government and the governments point of view in the fight.


Boring story. If the person truly had unlimited power, the government would loose faster than their point of view can be shown.

I think you are looking for eternal(does not age) rather than immortal but not indestructible.

Being immortal (can't die ever for any reason) without being indestructible would seriously suck.

Bad guys chop you up into little pieces, but you are still alive and conscious but stuck as stir-fry for the rest of eternity.

There's an old print book series like that about a character named Casca if hurt or killed his cursed body undoes the harm and repairs itself - the repairs hurt as much as the original harm, or more. In one story his heart is cut out and he gets up to shove it back in. Cut up parts rejoin and heal etc. great pain while it happens.

I recall a story, don't remember if it was online or print, there was an immortal bad guy, but he couldn't heal like what you describe. They grind him into hamburger and leave him that way, a conscious, sentient, immobile pile of goop.

What's the best way to deal with an immortal (but not omnipotent bad guy? Find a deep dark hole and bury him. Preferably in concrete.

They recently did a cross-over between the Flash and Arrow TV series where they had to deal with an immortal bad guy. He wasn't super strong or fast, but he couldn't be killed. I kept yelling at the screen for them to just bury him in concrete.

You can't starve, you can't suffocate, you don't age, but you're stuck in the middle of a multi ton block of concrete. Sucks to be you for the next thousand years.

I remember the last panel of a graphic novel with an immortal but not indestructible character. In the last panel he's lost a usurpation war and his still living head is stuck on a spike on the wall of the city he attacked.

BTW I liked cmsix's My Reward story. It's half a page long and complete.
