Fishing the Heavens

Postby codlaim » Mon Dec 04, 2006 12:54 pm

This is something of a travel tale. There would be a bunch of places and people and things to see, most of which I have no ideas on. I like the germ of the story, though, and might put some time into it.

There is this man who uses a fishing pole to hitch rides on the fish that swim through the heavens. He seeks to find his way to the center of the universe, but to do so he must hitch a ride on salmon, who fight the current once a year to reach the center and spawn. To do so, he must catch a number of other fish to make his way to the river that the salmon run. He lives a far way away from it.

Like I said, there'd be some things that happen in between. How much depends on what I some up with and how long it I think it ought to be. It's a young idea. Might come up with something, might not. I don't know.
