The Real Monster
"She stopped fearing the monsters in her closet when she realized that they are brave enough to lie next to you."
We hear of tales of bloodthirsty vampires, vengeful ghosts, deceptive witches and the walking dead. But the reality of our lives are equally as frightening as such lore. Murderers, cannibals, kidnappers and powerhungry rulers. Humanity, is equally monstrous. A young woman has experienced the horrors of living - abused and used. Meek and submissive, she has adapted to her situation and survived. She doesn't put up a fight and obeys orders... Until she is challenged with a proposition. A chance at freedom... If she is willing to lose her fearful ways - willing to fight
and give herself to an unlikely ally.
Fear by many.
A monster has come to her aid, after lurking in the shadows.
Note: I assume thus monster will probably be a vampire, demon or mage, though other suggestions are acceptable. Essentially, this story will revolve around the transformation of a victim to a survivor - to a fighter. After accepting the monster's proposition, she exacts revenge on her captor/abusive lover and gives herself to the monster as agreed (a contract with a demon in exchange for his power, becoming a vampire or offering blood in exchange, or assisting the mage - we can discuss the specifics). Because the monsters prey of negative/weak emotions and desperate people, she becomes a target and eventually a vessel.
If you would like, we can add a psychological element.
Extra Note - While the abused character is initially submissive/weak willed, she will not remain that for long. If we decide that you will play that character, keep that in mind. So, no whiny, damsel in distress type of characters. Perhaps from the very
beginning, but not throughout the story.
Dealing with monsters, can make a monster of yourself. You can become the very thing you fear or hate.

After this single event (overcoming an abusive situation) passes, we will need to discuss further plot and where to go after.
A more lighthearted take, though still a bit dark.
A young child lives with an abusive, alcoholic parent. After a tragic event, the parent loses it and the child is on the receiving end of the backlash. She has few friends, but loves school. And wishes nothing more than her oarent to be better. One evening, as their parent rages, they lock themselves in their bedroom. After a series of events, a monster/demon reveals itself. For a while, the child had felt and feared its presence - but it turns out to be a fairly nice demon and has come to help, to protect her.
Perhaps it takes her to it's world, or tries to harm her parent. But, the novelty soon wears and she misses home. Even her parent, she should be there to help them.
This is more of a platonic story, but could age up and add romantic elements if desired. I have two characters in mind (one humanoid demon, one creature).
