"Monsters from the id!!!"

So. Psychology. Fun. Right? Ha. Inspiring? Maybe. What if you wrote a short story where the id (subconcious), the superego (conscience - y'know, like the little shoulder angels) and the ego (conscious) were eternally bickering in a surreal landscape - except at first, the reader wouldn't KNOW who or where these characters were? What if it was a slow discovery process? And what if it ended with a look at the real world and had the unfortunate person to whom these elements belong doing something shocking while they are busy snarking at each other? That would be a good contest... Well, if you happen to stop by and think this sounds like fun, go ahead and send in your own version, meanwhile I'll be working on mine [probably].
