Looking for ideas

The Blue Light Boy

Random question, has anyone got any good kidnap scenarios? I need some inspiration for a new story I'm writing.

I witnessed a kidnapping the other day. I didn't do anything, just left the young goat sleeping.

I'm sure the goat appreciated the extra sleep.

No doubt his nanny woke him later.

Back to the OP. A little more detail would help, location, limits, etc in order to make a sensible suggestion or two.

So, he's a serial kidnapper of women in their mid teens to early 20's, no real limits, in and around the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada

Are you the OP (philip.arkwright) using a different user name, or are you offering suggestions on his behalf?

any good kidnap scenarios

I agree with joyR. A general idea of what you consider a good scenario would be helpful.

Is there a specific genre that you are considering? Are aliens involved; are the kidnapper(s) and victim(s) to be male, female, or a mix; is sex part of the scenario and if so, willing, reluctant, or rape; etc?

Victims are female, kidnapper is male, no aliens, and yes there is rape

Given that all your posted stories feature girls/women without limbs, it would not require much of a challenge to kidnap them. Certainly no chase or struggle. A large shopping bag should be enough both for transport and concealment.

I'll leave further suggestions to others as any I might suggest are not those you'd enjoy at all.

The simplest is the 'hand over the mouth and shove them into the truck' variety. Most of the description typically revolves around the chase and the fight (between woman and attacker), rather than physical description of the location or social context (other than 'a cold, dark alley').

A more involved mystery would feature a more elaborate plot (enticing someone somewhere where they'd not only be vulnerable, but which would implicate/embarrass the abductee or complicate the investigation).

Just an aside, but female kidnap and rape has been done to death! (no pun intended) To put an interesting twist on it, I'd probably go with a young football star being kidnapped and raped, and then deal with the detectives refusing to take it seriously, or insisting the victim 'must be a real loser/wanted it' homophobic theme. By casting the victim as male, you effectively turn the entire dynamic on its head, contrasting social expectations of male to female behaviors.

But that's just me. I specifically look for the 'hard to write' stories, over the run-of-the-mill, easily copied variety.

That is probably why he wants suggestions.

Seriously, CW has a point - you need to do something different.

A mastermind anonymously contacts a man and blackmails him into kidnaping the victim, who is a 19 year old female. The mastermind is a grotesque, deformed old man who wants the victim's mother as his wife. The mastermind sets the ransom specified by the kidnapper as the mother marrying the mastermind. While the mastermind and mother marry and honeymoon together, the kidnapper and victim find out they care for each other and elope. The rest of that plot can go almost anywhere.
