THE MEME:
1. Comment to this post with "I surrender!" and I'll assign you the basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. Create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them
3. Add in any actor photos, character bios and show synopsis that you want.
4. Post to your own journal.

THE PROMPT: (from [livejournal.com profile] be_themoon) A fantasy story centered around a tribe of female warriors.

Aftershocks

The small Tatenwa tribe has managed to subsist in the arid mountains of Amantic. They are lead by two queens, a hot-headed huntress and her younger half-sister. They are accompanied by the older queen’s twin cousins: a no nonsense, pragmatic young woman and her flightier sister; and younger queen’s caretakers: her stepmother and her blind-but-prophetic full sister. The remainder of the warriors composes of many of the queens’ relatives, along with a number of freed slaves who proved themselves as capable warriors.

Then, one day, the entire mountain region is rocked by an earthquake in a series of natural disasters that strike Amantic, completely wiping out neighboring tribes and leaving the Tatenwa fragmented. They, along with refugees from various surviving tribes, must learn how to survive in their changed world.

Please forgive me for sort of ripping off Avatar, and various other tribal-esque stories. This just...kind of happened.


THE HOT-HEADED HUNTRESS QUEEN (Dania Ramirez) - Mitet Dala

MITET: How can you expect me to sit here and wait? My people are out there!
OTALLO: Wait, Dala, wait. We cannot upset the balance more.
MITET: Damn the balance! Henira is out there too. What kind of mother are you?
OTALLO: I am not her mother.

THE YOUNGER QUEEN (Shelbie Bruce) - Henira Dala-ma

NAMOEL: What is it?
HENIRA: Everything’s gone, sister. There isn’t anything left. Here, don’t you see?
NAMOEL: I see.

THE TWIN COUSINS (Paula Patton) - Salokmi and Satosha

SALOKMI: Mitet, there’s no point to this. Let’s go.
MITET: Did you hear what she said?
SALOKMI: I did, but you’re not doing anyone any good by bleeding out.

SATOSHA: How can you do that? How can you just decide that people deserve to die?
SALOKMI: If we’re going to survive, Tosha, we need to decide.

THE STEPMOTHER (Sonia Manzano) - Otallo

OTALLO: I don’t trust them; they came out of no where.
SALOKMI: What are we supposed to do? Leave them out to die? They’re from the North; they won’t survive here unless we take them in.
OTALLO: I’m sleeping with a knife tonight.

THE BLIND SISTER (Amber Rose Revah) - Namoel

NAMOEL: Don’t you see? We’ve been given a chance to rebuild.
HENIRA: Rebuild what? Everything was fine the way it was before!
NAMOEL: Only what you can see.

THE MALE BADUU WARRIOR (Sami Darr) – Tamon

TAMON: Your people have lived at the mercy of the Baduu for centuries.
MITET: Things are different now. We survived.
TAMON: Not yet you haven’t.

TAMON'S WIFE (Mila Kunis) - Isa

HENIRA: Your hair is different. Why?
ISA: I’m not from the mountains.
HENIRA: I can see that. But why?
ISA: My people are the Gaguren of the east.

THE GAGUREN REFUGEE [AND ISA’S BROTHER] (Frank Grillo) – Emaro

EMARO: I seek only refuge.
MITET: Well, that seems to be what everyone wants these days.
EMARO: And a wife, I’d like one too.
MITET: That may be more difficult.

THE NORTHERN REFUGEE #1 (Willa Holland) – Dahri

HENIRA: What’s the north like?
DAHRI: It’s cold, colder than the tops of the mountains, and there is snow most of the year. But it’s not as green. And there are less people.
HENIRA: I would like to visit.

THE NORTHERN REFUGEE #2 [AND DAHRI’S BROTHER] (Asa Butterfield) – Datoge

DATOGE: Dahri, I’m cold.
DAHRI: Come here, it’ll be warmer if we sleep together.
DATOGE: Do you think we’ll go back home?
DAHRI: I don’t know, ‘Toge. Go to sleep.

THE NORTHERN REFUGEE #3 [DAHRI & DATOGE’S FATHER] (Simon Merrells) – Lonaro

LONARO: We are not here to form an alliance, or to make friends. We are here to survive. Is that clear?
DAHRI & DATOGE: Yes, Father.

The refugees were fun! Because I had to throw in some people who weren't part of the tribe, get some more conflict and such. :) And, yes, this show would be the ultimate girl power show! :D

Um, here you go: a family ends up stranded after a vacation in a remote area of your choice.

Hmmm...three people who meet by chance at a park are transported to the battlefield of your choice in a different time period, immediately post battle, and shenanigans ensue. :)

*blushes* Thank you! I was so afraid that it would come off as boring and stupid. (And, yes, I saw it! I'm working on it right now :D)

There can never be too many kickass women. ;)

Aaaah, how about this? The various shenanigans of two boys who decide on a whim to take a road trip across the world.

I would watch this show a lot. It seems like ten kinds of epic.

Also: I surrender!

*blushes* Thank you! There are just so many possibilities with this thing...

And, how about, a powerful military dictator with no family has disappeared, and all the politicking and shenanigans that ensue because of the power vacuum?
