2 more ideas for the Not So Tiny Story collab:
Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson (1886). My reasons: this story represents a concept in Western culture, that of the inner conflict of humanity's sense of good and evil. The novella has been interpreted as an examination of the duality of human nature (that good and evil exists in all), and that the failure to accept this tension (to accept the evil or shadow side) results in the evil being projected onto others. Ideas: maybe we could turn this into a more psychological journey and/or (to avoid the Incredible Hulk angle) narrate the story from Hyde’s point of view and reasoning. OR maybe combine this with the shadow collaboration as the fight between the hero and his shadow (side of his personality).
The War of the Worlds (1898) - science fiction novel by H. G. Wells. Original story: it describes the experiences of an unnamed narrator who travels through the suburbs of London to reunite with his wife, while the Earth is invaded by Martians. It is the earliest story that details a conflict between mankind and an alien race. Ideas: its genre does not have to be science fiction, but the story could still provide plenty of possibilities artistically. This time it could be narrated from the aliens’ point of view; or follow through a journey & conversation between the main character and an alien together debating on the Earth’s future at our current times.
