Over the last few days I have had a number of ideas about, Forethought, circulating my addled brain and I thought it was high time I put them down.
I am still sticking with the idea of Prometheus being found. For some reason I see a small troop of soldiers finding him. The other thing I see is that Prometheus is huge. Not King Kong huge. More Mighty Joe Young. (Hey, I just realised KK is another great source of inspiration for this ting.) Whether he stays huge or does one of those godlike transformations into something more managible I have not made up my mind. When they find him, they have to fight off an attack from the eagle. Which would make a great start. When he and the soldiers return to 'civilisation' The authorities do not believe their reports about eagle attacks. Because there have been none since P was on the move. It is only when he is stationary in a hospital that the bird finally locates him and attacks once more. Chaos ensues. Of course everyone believes them now. 'What menace is this you've bought into the city,' they say. Or more probably, 'Get him the **** outta here?' They try to protect him from attack, but it does not work. The eagle always find a way - perhaps with the help of some other nasty creatures. And so the doctors decide on another method and give him a course of caustic drugs. They believe these will make him unpalatable to the eagle. Or possibly the drugs make the bird unable to scent and therefore locate him. Like interferon they of course will have a 50/50 chance of working. Because they a poisonous they make him feel wretched etc.
Eventually P recovers his original powers. Now there is the question of Pandora. I have a feeling she turns up at his bedside. Why? I do not know yet. What will their relationship be? There also needs to be a second, contemporary, woman who Prometheus can have a relationship with. Not a nurse - that's too obvious. Probably one of the soldiers who found him.
As to the bigger picture. Prometheus having forethought, knew he would be cured, and that Pandora would come to him. This was all his plan to get her aid to gather the ills of the world once more and return them to her "box". He also know in doing this Zeus would return him to the rock and its eagle. This he is willing to endure - for the sake of humanity.
These are my rough thoughts so far.
