I’ve been a reader in the episode community for a few years. However, I feel like starting my own story and could use some opinions on my story line before I start writing.
In the USA, there was a war that wiped out the country except for a few. These survivors create a new way of living in the country in order to avoid another war. In this improved country, each person lives in a territory based on their astrological sign and are only allowed to marry people based on your astrological sign. So for example, if you were born in October, you are a libra and you would live with other libra’s in your own, secluded part of the country, away from people born as leo’s, cancers, aquarius’, etc. You would only be able to fall in love with another libra.
From here I have two ideas, but I am leaning towards the second:
- you find out that your best friend or sibling is not actually a libra which means they cannot live with you anymore and you have to hide them/run away from the government
- your parents arrange a marriage between you and a guy that you hate. you run away and fall in love with a guy/girl of a different astrological sign. So for example, you’re a libra but you fall in love with a capricorn, which is forbidden by the government.
The rest of the story would most likely involve defeating or changing the government.
Any feedback, concerns, complaints, etc. are welcome :)))))
