@georgedawkinsII: There are a lot of strong opposites in your idea, hot vs cold, male/female, etc. I wonder how you can make those symbolic beyond the action of the story. The action/fight scenes can carry the reader’s attention through, but I think there is potential for more symbolic meaning to be developed through the dialogue.
@buddyscalera: A lot of comedic potential. I love the serious comedy style. what if, unbeknowst to the hero, the “villan” had been trying to identify him (the hero) in the same way. In the final “aha” moment, they realize they have both been mistaken about the other’s identity?
@philipspace: The idea of having others say “stupendous” is interesting, I worry, though, about the space I have to work with. In a story this short, I don’t want to overcrowd the cast with too many people.
