Merk... I know that we're not really allowed to vote for all three options (by virtue of the vote essentially becoming meaningless then), but I really like ALL of the themes >_<.
As for some comments on the themes themselves and/or the components:
1: The theme itself sounds pretty nice, but the components feel a bit too restricting to my taste. I foresee a lot of entries using Components 2 and 3 to draw a war scene during which one of the soldiers sacrifices himself in order to let the others escape. On a sidenote: Does Component 4 leave room for starting the story with someone's death/injury?
2: A very open theme with lots of different ways to expand upon. There's not a whole lot of things to comment on, actually.
3: Now here's an interesting theme. There are so many different kinds of stories one can make with this: forbidden love, revenge against someone for whatever reason, a robbery of some sorts (greed)... Also, I take it that component 1 doesn't limit you to using one and only one of the seven deadly sins?
