Need Fishbowl Themes
This is now CLOSED for new themes.  I'm going to make a poll.  Thank you all for your enthusiasm!

The last of the previously scheduled themes is "military science fiction" set for January 8.  So I need new ideas for 2013.  What topics would you like to see featured in a Poetry Fishbowl?  Here are a few of my ideas ...

* unlikely heroes & implausible villains
* mythical beasts
* things best left forgotten
* robots
* young adult literature
* revenge & forgiveness
* worthy causes

I'll gather the possible themes together and post a poll eventually to select specific ones.

Maybe this would dovetail nicely with "things best left forgotten": Forgotten toys and old momentos.

worthy causes and unworthy causes.

Thank you!

These are cool.

Re: Thank you!

I keep getting a spooky image of the charity of unworthy causes--so many charities devote themselves to doing good things--what about a charity that devotes itself to doing bad things?
Something the real monsters believe in donating their time and money to?

0_o You know, Shaeth probably used to have one of those.

21st century myths & legends.

I vote for middle aged fantasy as well.. [hey, 45-ish here!]

Hmm, you know how most fantasy worlds are sort of pseudo-medieval? How about one that isn't? I mean, the whole deal with dwarves, elves and dragons [oh my!] but with some other social matrix. [Regency era perhaps?]

Not what you expected: Evil villains who aren't, Heroes that don't save the day. [ever seen the movie Megamind?] Gods & Goddesses who don't behave the way you'd imagine.

The Last Resort.

Good gone bad... Mirror!universe counterparts.

We just did "modern myths" this year, but some of these others are good.

Re: Okay...

You're right, you did, my bad. Hmm.. future myths? Rocket Santa sliding down the exhaust port bringing presents to all the good children? The legend of the ghostly asteroid miner?
