Use a tiny ghost to Fire Up your Muse!

I recently have been pointed toward a site called tiny ghosts, and decided it was the most perfect site I'd ever seen for inspiring new ideas for writing. I wanted to create this community as a way to share that inspiration with other Heroes fanfiction writers, and other aspiring writers in general. I wanted a way to help fire up inspiration for those writers whose muse has long since gone silent, to provide a place to gather in new types of inspiration, to act as a sounding board for those people who need ideas to be said in a different way before they catch in their minds.

I hope these tiny ghosts can do that for us. I hope to have bi-weekly posts on other inspiring sites, on shared ways to help inspire your imagination. I hope to have the occasional contest, to see all of your inspiration in action. Of course, I hope to have lots and lots of fic. And I hope you all enjoy yourselves.

For more delightful information, I've put the community bio below the cut. Please read, and enjoy!


This community is for those Heroes writers and writers in general that need an extra push when it comes to inspiration for their stories, whatever genre you choose. For the first spark of inspiration, head on over to tiny ghosts and check out their archive. Each story is two sentences long and has accompanying pictures. They range from the dark to the humorous, the thoughtful to the bizarre, and provide a hundred different jumping-off points for your fiction. Just as a warning though, many of these run hard to the dark side of the spectrum.

Does this one inspire you to write some Sylar/Mohinder, Sylar/Peter, or even Nathan/Heidi fic?
Or does this one make you think of Sylar/Luke, Peter/Adam, or something even more sinister?
What could this one mean for those apocalyptic futures Heroes keeps showing us?
Doesn't this one remind you of Future!Peter, or Adam Monroe?

There are hundreds of other tiny ghosts, and each could inspire hundreds of their own stories. Look at them. Use one as inspiration. And then post it here so we can see it!

If you have another website that offers great inspiration in terms of words or art, let me know so I can look it over and add it!

This is a fairly easy community in terms of content. Everything from the lightest G to the hardest NC-17 is welcome here. All kinks and concerns are welcome. Gen, het, slash, and moresomes are welcome. Original content is welcome in addition to Heroes fanfiction.

To keep things all consistent, let's use this header below and keep the rest under an LJ cut or fake LJ cut. There are plenty of tags, arranged by character, genre, rating, kink, pairing, and some others. Please do make use of them! If there isn't one for you, please let me know and I'll make it for you.

Oh the ancient sites of the internet, we miss you so. Some of my favorite sites have gone through three or four domain changes, one of them twice within two years, the technology and software has changed so much. Thanks for letting me know about these sites!
