Group 18: Horror*; an outdoor music concert; animal crackers

*My idea of horror is watching "Hocus Pocus" around Halloween, so mine is probably pretty tame. Anyway, the logline!

ANIMALIA: Black metal group Animalia has a treat for the crowds at the High Valley Music Festival.

It took everything in me not to add the line "And that treat is ... ::pause; whips off sunglasses:: ... DEATH!"

That is so awesome, I can't even describe it, Jenn. :)  You SHOULD have added the last line!

I wrote the logline first, when I didn't really have an ending (or much of a middle) in mind, and then, as in round 1, took it right to the stroke of midnight, so hopefully the judges won't notice that the story doesn't quite deliver the same punch as promised in the logline!  But 2 hours before the deadline I was ready to blow off the whole thing and go to bed, so I'm just happy I hung in there and churned out something! 
 
Good luck everybody - can't wait to read your stories. They sound great!

Heirloom

 

In a future where weapons are outlawed and medicine is handled by robotics, one 12-year-old boy’s forbidden gift from his grandfather is the key to saving – or destroying – the most powerful man in the world.

Lots of cool loglines in here. Hope I'll have more time to read them this round.

Here's mine:

So many of these already sound amazing--talk about stiff competition! Here's mine:

Group 19 - Sci Fi, reservoir, a typewriter

“The Engineer Returns”
Nevada 1951: A young military officer is taken to a top secret base in the desert and asked to work on a special project, which could prove to be either his undoing or his salvation.

"Lost and Found"
A young man’s lost engagement ring leads him to learn the true power of love.

Yeah, completely unoriginal title given the location.  And a dreadfully dull log line.  But hopefully you think the story itself is sweet once posted.  Romance is so far outside my comfort zone (and I couldn't write this one from an oven's perspective this time!).
 
I feel your pain!  And I loved your oven story!!
