Advanced Creative Writing: Prompt List Development

I'm working on developing an "ultimate" list of creative writing prompts. Today, I'd like your help and input for this. Please develop and post at least 3 unique creative writing prompts here. Then, peruse the internet for 3 worthy writing prompts and post them separately.

3 prompts

1.If you could live forever anywhere in the universe, with immortality, what would you try to accomplish?

2.Tell a well known story, but from the perspective of a person or an animal witnessing it. Ex: Little red riding hood from the birds point of view.

3.If you could be immortal as an old person, or stay the same age, but be mortal which would you choose and why?

3 from online:

1. At the end of the rainbow I found...

2.Write from the perspective of a cat stuck on a trampoline.

3. Pick an image on google and write it's story.

Here are three prompts that I found on the internet that I thought were rad!

1.
Flash Fiction: "So do you come here often?" Keep the story under 500 words.

2.
Writing Prompt: Its year 2057 and Queen Elizabeth still reigns. People are getting suspicious.

3.
So this one is a visual writing prompt! What would put Santa in this position? http://i.imgur.com/wmtWaLb.jpg

Copy that link into the search bar.

Here are three prompts that I came up with.

1.
A company has developed self thinking androids. There is a huge outcry for these beings to be dismantled due to them being sentient. The world goes to a second holocaust against these beings. Write from the perspective of either a human standing up for the rights of androids, or from the perspective of an android.

2.
You come home one night to find a murder scene in your apartment. One of the victims sputters through the blood in their mouth, "It's still here."

3.
You wake up one day and time has stopped, yet you are unaffected. However, everyone around is still visibly aging, and staring at you.

Gabby
1. Write about an experience that you would never have in your normal life. Imagine your family is sending you away for an unknown reason. Where would you go? Who would you meet? What would you do differently from your every day life? Who would you become?
2. Imagine you never met someone in your life that is very important to you. What would you have missed out on? What did this person do for your life and how did it affect you? Where would you be without this person?
3. You pick up a book and begin reading it and realize that it is about you. Does the book describe you as you thought you would be described? What does the book see in you that you dont see in yourself? Do you read to the end and see how your life progresses? What experiences in your life are highlighted in this book?

Found prompts:
"Be careful out there," your mom said as you grabbed your duffel bag and headed on a camping trip with friends. "You know that tonight is the anniversary, don't you?" You nodded, then shut the door behind you before getting in the car and taking off.

An unstable scientist keeps cloning cats and eventually changes their DNA.

You are a vegetarian astronaut, you crash your ship on an alien planet, here all of the plants are made of meat and animals mad of plants.

MY Own:

You wake up to the sound of a unknown voice that sounds vaguely familiar, you sit up and look around only to find your pet staring at you, the next instance the voice appears again this time from your pet.

The fountain of youth has just been discovered, everyone drank from it, the only side effect to the water is that your dreams are all nightmares, and ten days after the world falls into an apocalyptic state, you are met with a choice.

your body is made up of 80% alcohol instead of water, yet the alcohol still makes you drunk. write a story about this.
