Let's get rambly! So today I was taking my math final (well, sort of taking it) and mid-math-problem, my brain was attacked by a BRAIN TUMOR OF EPIC PROPORTIONS.
It's different from other ideas I've had before- it's definitely way more adult.
And, gosh. I don't even know. Werewolves! Prostitution! New Jersey!
I'm just going to ramble on about the idea now.

So the main character is Vanessa Palmer, who lives in California in a lovely McMansion with her rich-ass parents, and I think it starts off at her graduation party, and she's all excited to go to New Jersey. Because Vanessa is pretty punk rock, and she doesn't want to be a spoiled rich kid anymore, she wants to experience the real world by living in the city.
And so she's going to college in River City, NJ. (River City is unrelated to the Scottish television drama of the same name, but it's only a working title anyway.) So the city is kind of like Paterson or Camden- poor as all hell, closely packed, dirty, either depressingly rainy or swelteringly hot, pretty much all the time.
And so she's getting ready to go to college there, and she arrives there and PRESTO! Mugged by Julian Valdez, who is a werewolf.
So she's left without any money, or her phone, or anything.
And she kinda wanders around looking for a police station but she meets this guy, Matt, who is a nice guy and offers to let her stay with him since it's really not safe to wander the streets like that.
So what do you know, she moves into his crappy apartment with him, and it turns out she's right next door to Julian, who pretty much keeps her from going to the police via threats of violence.
So obviously he's a pretty bad guy, but she's also weirdly attracted to him.
She meets his girlfriend, Melanie, and they kinda become friends.
At this point, she has no money, so she starts working at a strip joint, and then starts offering "extra services," which later becomes her main gig.
And she continues hanging out with Julian's crowd, and they eventually hook up behind Melanie's back. Also, he ends up biting her during sex, and she gets all pissed off at him for turning her into a werewolf.
But Matt is falling for her, too, which gets pretty awkward when he becomes one of her clients.
So there's this pretty big tangled web of relationships and angst. I just know it ends with her deciding to spend her "plane ticket back to California" money on a guitar instead.

And that's that. I'm kind of disturbed that all of this violence and sex came from my own brain. Well, it's going to get written.

It continues to sound epic. Sex and violence epic, of course.
(Also, the theme song made me lol)

And that's possibly the perfect ending to everything. Guitars over plane tickets anyday!

Also, like, werewolves. What's up with the werewolves?

The werewolf thing isn't a terrifically huge issue- it's kinda like, holy shit, this dude is a werewolf, no one's going to believe me if I rat him out.
And then later she unwillingly becomes a werewolf. It's like lycanthropy rape. So that's kinda one of the things that makes her hate him even more.

I feel like there should be fear-mongering high school health class documentries in black and white warning of lycanthropy rape.
