Simeon the Brilliant

I was playing around with a Random Plot Generator while thinking about the next book in the Peter Stoller series. I already know I want it to focus on Simeon; he’s such a fun character. Here’s what the Plot Generator came up with:

What would you do if you knew there were unprepared people with shocking habits near the ones you love?

The night of the party changes everything for Simeon Martin, a 26-year-old spy from London.

One moment, he is discussing radios with his daring boss, Peter Stoller; the next, watching with horror as unprepared people kill each other.

He knows these people came from Vienna but he can’t prove it – at least not without some secret books.

The brilliant, forgiving man knows that his unsettled life is over. He acquires some secret books and is reborn as the hero who will save the world from unprepared people.

However, when Peter calls, begging him to come home, Simeon is forced to decide what is more important: stopping the unprepared people that kill each other, or preserving his relationship with his boss?

It gave the book the title Simeon the Brilliant. Um . . .

If you’ve never used one, a Plot Generator works like Mad Libs. You fill in some names, nouns, adjectives and it does the rest. To hilarious results. All those unprepared people . . . Gotta stop ’em.

  1. I’ve never been to a random plot generator. Looks like it might be fun to play around with.

    I like that wording–unprepared people killing each other.

    So does unprepared mean they didn’t plan on killing each other, it was just a spur of the moment thing? Of course that can’t be true, cause Simeon seems to know it’s coming and he has to decide what to do.

    Maybe they just brought the wrong weapons along to kill people. Spoons instead of knives. Looks like an interesting story. 🙂

    1. I’d never played with one, either! I didn’t even know they existed, but when Scott told me about them, I had to try, just for fun.
