I’m a big fan of dystopian stories, so some of that is incorporated into these prompts. Feel free to draw inspiration from them, combine or change them in whatever way you’d like, I’m not going to use them. Just let me know if you want one taken off my list so I don’t show it to someone else lol.

These are the ones I have so far:

  • "Equal but separate” is the law of our country. Citizens from different ethnic groups are forbidden from intermarrying. The genetic control officers will know if we break the law. Are he and I worth fighting for? (Some suggested plot points: MC and/or LI are unfaithful to their state-approved partner who isn’t necessarily a bad person, state-approved partner might support them or not, MC and LI have to run away to the lawless outside or another, maybe worse society)

  • You grew up in a small Mennonite community, living simply, the most complex machine you owned being a tractor. You’d sometimes envied those outside, with their brain implants that could access all human knowledge as easily as thinking it. Until, that is, the implants are hacked. (Additional suggestions: It doesn’t have to be Mennonite/Amish if you’re uncomfortable with Christian MCs, it could just be parents who don’t trust new tech or are way too poor to afford it. Suggested plot points: those with hacked implants become violent, LI could be another community member or someone with a faulty implant, MC could have doubts about saving the world or going back to her isolated home, they search for the hacker’s signature to find their identity or location)

  • You were born outside of the Gate. Because of your deformity, you were cast aside by those who keep a tight control on the country’s resources. But [boy’s name] isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo. Are you? (“Deformity” can be any disability you’re comfortable writing about and can incorporate into the plot, or otherwise just skin colour, eye colour, or a scar or something. Maybe the MC can pass for ‘elite’ and has to train and sneak inside the Gate to sabotage it from inside.)
