Story - Britta Frazier
-Classic western with a role reversal, the mysterious sharpshooting stranger who wanders into town (and always seems to be played by Clint Eastwood) is a woman.
-A person that can only be seen in water (in the rain/in a lake).
I'm pretty sure the first idea was directly inspired by this picture:I haven't actually seen the Good the Bad and the Ugly, but I love this costume so much. I drew a character wearing a more fashionable female version of this outfit and thought hey, there could be a story here.
The second idea I've had for a long time. Noticing that it's almost mandatory for chick-flicks to have a kissing scene in the rain...
...I thought "What if you were in love with someone who you could literally only see in the rain?" That got my mind wandering and creating this odd species of human that is
invisible when not in water. But I think for this story I don't want to use this rain person as a romantic interest.
1) A mysterious woman wanders into a small old west town, not long after arriving she manages to tick off the town's small but violent gang 2) She has come in search of her father's killer, the elusive invisible man who can only be seen or harmed in water 3) She
knows that the weather changes wherever the invisible man goes, staying in one place causes severe droughts followed by severe thunderstorms, if she can wait it out a thunderstorm will arrive and she can face the invisible man 4) until the storm
arrives she has to keep the man from leaving town and try to outsmart the gang that trying to drive her out. 5) She has a showdown with the invisible man, but the few town's people she's befriended have taught her kindness and she shows him mercy, releasing him from his spell instead of carrying out her revenge.
