Need help on choosing a writing topic!

So I have this English paper due on Thursday. I've had a week and a half for it but I've been super busy and now I have strep Still though I need to finish it (obviously).

It can be about anything, just has to have a basis of Gothic & Romantic literature. For those unfamiliar Gothic is a style of writing often using weather/scenary to portray emotions, has much mystery/intensity, uses of supernatural things, and the uses of intense words. Romantic literature is not about romance necessarily but is rather that human nature is good, nature, imagination, and heroism. Of course there are many more characteristics but those are the basis. It also does not have to contain all of the things I listed above, just examples!

Anybody flowing with imagination and want to help me out? I had a great idea but I can't form it properly because it takes a novel of explanation and this is just a fully developed SHORT story. (3 pages minimum.) It can use fantasy. My friend is doing a story about how someone falls in love with an alien?? LOL. So just shoot ideas!
