Write about TDottle in the same vein as Heroes.

There, run with that.

EDIT: Also, those requirements are too easy.
Peace.

Word for word copy of the epic of Gilgamesh, but with forum names and/or memes inserted sporadically

I agree with Nine. It should be forum related.

Could be a literature class.

I'm hoping he meant a mythology class, or some weird spin-off about contemporary spins on the basic mythological stories (which really is...like..yeah, all sci-fi is that. And fantasy is an even more thinly veiled ripoff)

Ha, if you want ripoffs, read Sword of Truth. It's medieval Atlas Shrugged. I can't believe I like that series sometimes. It just got worse with the BS after book 2.

...Atlas Shrugged wasn't part of a series

I meant Sword of Truth is the series. It is HEAVILY Randian. It even manages to have Judeo-Christian communists.

But yeah, they're evil. Even the smart religious ones are made out to be stupid for believing in a Creator.

Alright, yeah I'm guessing this is what he meant by "sci-fi" since thats like one of the earliest examples.

Even then it's got (arguably) kind of an industrial revolution allegory vibe going on
