Ok, this story/idea is in its VERY rough stages...

So I'm only going to lay the groundwork and see what suggestions pop up from you guys to help it along...

Thanks in advance for the help.

The Idea:

I want to present Metamorphosis in a different light...It won't be the exact CENTER of the plot line, but it will play a leading role...

The substance of the story is "Magician's of Old".... PURE fiction, so nobody get their panties in a bunch as I mangle history here, ok?

I'm thinking of having this trunk be aboard the Titanic...Houdini and Bess are aboard (probably wrong year, I know) when it goes down...They escape on a life-raft but the trunk is lost...

Years later the trunk is brought up as a part of the raising and recovery...

It falls into my hands and I discover that it has been imbedded with even more mysterious powers than it had in Houdini's hands...

~I do not want to give away the WHAT of it's new powers, because as far as I've been able to tell, it would be unique~

So, this any good as a basis, or is it crap?

Prof. Piper,

Perhaps you could somehow tie into the movie. In the movie version, Jack was handcuffed to a pipe and standing on a box. In the movie version, Rose helped Jack to escape only for Jack to freeze to death later.

Hey look. Jack died. Maybe Hollywood took creative liberties and changed the real story.

The real story is this: A wooden crate was discovered within the Titanic and when they opened it they found Jack handcuffed inside. But then the most mysterious thing happened. Even though Jack was dead, his love for Rose was not. Those witnessing the recovery of the crate witnessed Jack's love bring Rose back (the switch).

Just an idea.

Nice one Kip, I can see that done with a Tip over too, opening the trunk to see the dead man, or his bones, handcuffed within, then after relating the strength of the lovers, that could go in so many directions, Old Rose could turn to face the trunk, and become young again, Jack could return to the living, any number of twists......!
