Talking Undeveloped Story Idea - Help Wanted

Hey guys! It's Dana, and since high school started, I've been really pressed for time thanks to school, homework, and extracurriculars totally swamping my schedule. Sorry it's been such a while.

Please please please tell me if this sounds too much like The Hunger Games. I was not thinking of it at all when I got this idea.

Basically, this girl named Naoko goes to a new school. Since her new school requires her to join a club, she joins the seemingly harmless "Cupcake Club," which she figures requires minimal effort. As it turns out, the Cupcake Club is a facade for something much more wicked: a club, led by the mad and mysterious X, that forces its members to kill one another. Every meeting, members each receive one cupcake; the majority are blue, but if you get a pink cupcake, then you have to kill another club member. Failure to do so within a month results in the death of you and (possibly) your family. (I think I want to have the families be kidnapped, but this seems so iffy.) Once the Equinox rolls around, any and all remaining members must participate in a masquerade-style free-for-all in which the victor may return to a normal life.

Obviously, I have a lot of plot twists up my sleeve: an oblivious love interest, several traitors, etc. Let me know if this seems worth pursuing! Thanks y'all!

OMPJ, that's pretty intense. e_e

I don't think it sounds too much like The Hunger Games... Obviously people will say that, but nowadays it seems like EVERYTHING is too much like THG. But I think the whole cupcake idea is creative, though I'm wondering how realistic you can make it when it's a school club. If it were some club that she just heard of on a sign or on the internet or something, I think that would work better, because wouldn't a teacher have stopped this club before anything happened?

Anyway, if you start writing this, I'll be reading!

I really like this idea! I didn't think of Hunger Games at all when I read this. It is really unique! I would totally follow if you wrote it.

Ooh, I really like that idea! It doesn't sound like THG. But like Lizzie said, I'd make it a club she found online that was in her town or something, instead of a school. I mean, teachers probably would find out about something like that after so long.

But I'll def be following!
