Gah, "open genre" is somehow harder for me to start chewing on than giving me a specific genre...

Maybe just pick one of your favorite genres? (That's what I'm doing.)

Gah I can't get my brain off of vampires, which is just way too obvious...

I hadn't thought vampires at all, so might not be as obvious as you fear. Vampires drinking tequila sunrises? :)

This is a great image, and not nearly as cliche as a Bloody Mary. LOL

Nothing is too obvious if you make it unique and interesting. Smile  I was trying to make a unique and interesting vampire plot myself, but I'm pretty sure I'm going in another direction or, y'know, thirty...

Had a concept I really liked, but I'm too unfamiliar with the setting, and there isn't enough time to research it in depth. Cry Something's gotta stick soon, right?

Yeah, I also really want to choose a specific genre to focus ideas. I had sci-fi twice, so even though I was tempted to go with something "solarpunk" (since who needs to stick to the genres as defined by NYC Midnight in this round?), I think I'm going to go a different route. Not entirely sure what yet, though horror/ghost story does seem appropriate.
