Share your creativity with me! What's your most creative idea?

Hey I'm Rachel, 14.  I go to junior high and lately in class we've been writing a lot.  We have current assignments where we make story creative story. Just brainstorm with me and give me ideas! Thanks in advance, really, thanks. For example, the story of the chocolate factory of Willy Wonka was very creative if you have seen the movie! I want something like that creativity baby!!!! One thing I just came up with in one of my assignments is all about this hat. It's a magic hat. There's a special group of people that wear it; they're called the Specials. The person wearing one of these hats are able to travel through mysterious doors that lead to a completely different world each time.  All the person needs to do is find a door just any door and open it. He would have just entered a whole new world.  ANYHOO!!!!!!!! :) I need ideas people!

What if the group with the hats has one hat stolen. Then they have to chase down the thief through all the portals, time travel, etc.?

Or maybe the thief is a former member of the group but has decided to leave the group and has announced a plan to use the hat to do something that will ruin everything.

Time travel always makes for a creative story.  Are you characters able to interact with the past or are they just observers?  Most science fiction stories accept certain priciples about interacting with the past.  If the characters interact and change the past, they may return to find the present changed as well.  What would happen if a character lost the hat?  How would they get back?  What would happen in a character couldn't find the right door?  Do these doors lead to other dimensions and planets as well?

How are the Specials treated by others? Does the rest of the world know about their powers, or are they a big secret? Theis hats would be an item much in demand, but as well as those who would want to steal them, some parts of society may want to destroy them....

What if they find the source of the hat's magic?  Where did the hat originate?  If the hat gets stolen, like another poster suggested, then perhaps they find a way to investigate the history of the hat and who created it, or if there are more magic hats.  They could either find the hat's magical creator, or find that there are actually many more magic hats.

A different use for the hat: once upon a time, I wished I could design an indicator like the thermometer that can be held on an individual's forehead and changes color to indicate the person's temperature. I wanted my indicator to give a reading as to the thought process going on inside the person-red meant the person was angry, green meant the person was ready to work, whatever. Upon further thought, the group I was brainstorming with and I backed away from our idea because it came to sound too much like Big Brother intruding into our personal space with the mind-reading, but maybe you could work that type of power of insight into your hat's magical functioning.
