#26: Key to The City

Post by Kagoma_Kage » Fri 18th Jul 2008

Alright, I'm finally back online now.
So lets kick things off with a new Challenge.
It's occurred to me that, we've actuality seen very little of Haven City through out the books aside from Spud's Spud Emporium, and it's gotta get beter that that.
So this time I'd like to place you in the role of under-earth architect.
I want you to design a business for Haven and describe it as distinctly as possible.
What I'll be looking for here is creativity, so nothing is off limits, if you think elves would pay for it, it counts as a business.
For example, in Tokyo there is a business called Nekobukuro which literally boasts this as it's description: For Tokyoites that may not have the time or space to keep their own pets Nekobukuro provides short-term cuddling with surrogate cats.
Good luck.

P.S. I'd also like to take this time to encourage people to visit the "Your Ideas for Challenges" thread and submit their ideas. Because as you can see, my ideas are starting to come from further and further left field. :lol:

Oh this'll be a tough one... OOOO!! I GOT ONE!! (btw it's titled the Implant Place)

Basically, it's a place where fairies can get implants to look like other species. Like human growth thingies. Rounded ears. Animal tails/ears, etc. (I bet a lot of pixies and dwarves and centuars and stuff would go there..)

I have two ideas? That fine? If not, pick the second one.

Goblin-Goods, stationed in the Goblin Ghettos (If there are any left after TLC), this shop provides all the low income goblin needs, for second hand clothes to very dodgy beds.

Or

<Untitled> (Run under the cover name of Bork's goods and services)

First off it looks innocent enough, a normal store selling a few items, but if you are one of Haven's more shady residents you know what it really is: A store and haven for the criminals of the lower elements. Selling stock from illegal, old Neutrinos to car and shuttle modifications. It also servers as a haven for criminals hiding from the LEP. To get in, you must say "I went to the park". The cashier will ask "What did you see?" and you must reply "Five blue ghosts." He leads you to a trapdoor and you are in the midst of Havens criminal underworld.

Fresh Air

The business that brings you clean fresh air from the surface!

The business works off the fact that since Haven is underground and all the air is recycled it isn't fresh, which is something Holly has said in the past. Air from the surface is better.


You go into the medium small building, and you put on a small mask, sort of like the masks they drop in planes, from there the mask pumps in air directly from the surface.

Of course you'll have the option of choosing where your fresh air is brought in from.

A field of flowers?
A beach?
A deep forest?
Any where you want your air from you can get it.

You pay different prices for how long you want to be there. From minutes to hours.

Finally the scores!
In First Place:
Thanatos for
Fresh Air
This was a fabulously inventive take-off on the idea of an oxygen bar.
Really believable.

Second:

PhoenixRSA
Bork's Goods and Services
We always knew someone around here had a finger on the pulse of the fairy underworld, turns out it was PhoenixRSA all along. I like that you went with such an unusual back market idea.
and
Third:
HollyShort9
Implant Place
The idea of fairy "glamors"* is one very close to my heart as a avid "Elf Punk"* reader, however I've always missed their presets in Artemis Fowl, so in my opinion, the Implant Place would be a welcome addition to Haven City.

*A spell that alters one's own appearance.
* General term for books that portray elves as modern.
