The External Ones

Holding a strong sense of inspiration from H. P. Lovecraft, I'd been thinking of writing some stories involving beings that exist beyond the confines of space, time, and laws of physics and may or may not possess the ability to warp/manipulate matter and energy (and possibly time and space). They lo...

Worlds on Worlds

Stories regarding beings living in universes of only two spatial dimensions, completely oblivious to the third spatial dimension, such as Edwin A. Abbot's Flatland and A. K. Dewdney's The Planiverse have really gotten me thinking for quite some time: if a lack of third-dimensional thickness to other...

Centaurs of Mythostalgia

I'm sure some of you remember my most recent post in which I discussed a world of mine which is inhabited by mythical creatures of all sorts. With that in mind, I'd thought of throwing centaurs into the mix, but I've come across a bit of an obstacle. You see, in my world, for every species of animal...

Components of Harmony

I've had this idea for a story series for quite some time that had received quite some heavy inspiration from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, except the world my story takes place in isn't predominantly inhabited by ponies, but by a wide diversity of creatures mythical, hybrid, or otherwise. ML...

Too similar?

I watched the movie Help! I'm a Fish yesterday, and I absolutely fell in love with the concept of—spoilers ahead—an underwater civilization springing from fish gaining human-level intelligence from exposure to the antidote to a potion that turns humans into fish. That said, I came up with the idea f...

From Outer Time

I'm not trying to infringe anything off of Lovecraft's The Shadow Out of Time (although, admittedly, the plot is quite inspiring), but I did find the very title itself quite inspiring, the notion of something foreign to our time, that and what I've heard about different time dimension that could pot...

Subterranean Technology

I've had, for about the longest time, had the idea of a technologically advanced civilization existing within the cave systems below the Earth's surface, and as a speculative writer who yearns to propose what could actually be out there through fictional works (if that wasn't a redundant statement),...

How the Fungus Zombies Work

This may seem a bit on the cliche side, or not, but I've had this idea for a while concerning a newly discovered breed of cordyceps fungus that behaves similarly to colonial insects. They live in colonies/hives centered around a reproductively active queen, whom I imagine to be intelligent. She is s...

Ideas on the Masqueraders

I've had an idea for some of my stories that was sort of inspired by the tv series Grimm; this idea involves non-human beings of various species living among humans in disguise. Some are undercover agents from civilizations underground or in places human seldom explore (i.e. deserts, polar tundras, ...

The Sophophages

I have this one element I've had planned for sometime for a cycle of Lovecraftian-esque cosmic horror stories that is intended to stand as a horrific explanation to the Fermi Paradox, even though I like to be more optimistic about said paradox. It was something inspired by a creepypasta story I came...

Re: A Reason For Worship

I'm always willing to hear ideas lol. I like the fungi idea as the controlling entity, it reminds me of the game Last of Us if I got my story line right, it's been a while. I never would have thought of putting them in three factions. Yeah, I'm pretty sure Last of Us involved some sort of Ophiocord...

Re: A Reason For Worship

First of all welcome back FD try not to stay away to long. Hey Talon! Sorry for being away for so long; it's just that lately I haven't had much to share. I'll try to visit more frequently, though. I like the fluid secretion idea especially if the object isn't a extremely intricate part of the stor...
