This territory has probably been covered before, but #Pokémon makes a lot more sense if humans were newcomers to this world, and are using Trainers as a method of keeping the indigenous species under control.
There's a three-by-three grid. One axis is the standard lawful/neutral/chaotic. On the other axis, at least one of the items has something to do with #gender. What are the items on that axis?

Here's two takes on Bright Noa catching up with his son, who he hasn't seen in a few months. In the film, their meeting is pretty much all business, about where Noa's wife and daughter are. In the manga, the beard provides some lightness to a depressing scene. #Gundam
After reading Beltorchika's Children, and after rewatching Char's Counterattack, I'm still undecided on whether Bright Noa looked better with or without a beard.
How do superheroes and fighter pilots go to the toilet? Peeps with dicks can whip them out from the fly and pee, but that doesn't work for those without, or to poop. Do superhero unitards have hidden zippers that let wearers drop trou, or do they have to pull their arms out of the sleeves, shrug out of the top, and roll the whole thing down?
Setting idea: in a world complacently dependent on magic for all its tech and infrastructure, someone has just invented a purely mechanical anti-magic beacon that can be cheaply mass-produced
However, it doesn't block really weird (and dangerous and illegal) forms of magic, and those folks are also angry with the status quo
Magic proficiency doesn't go by any rules of heredity; is a birth lottery better or worse than industrial wealth accumulation?
Makin' a map for a wildly feature-creeped school project
This world is tidally locked, and the only relief from the brutal sun is eclipses, controlled by the clergy of the Imperium of the Crescent Sun
The Imperium's capital city is up top, the subordinate farming lands of Umsa are at the bottom left, various desert nomads are at the bottom right, and the ellipses show eclipse coverage from the various moons
#DND idea: a session with no DMs, just players determining where to go based on the dice and a rough plot (maybe a pre-existing module). Whoever rolled lowest/highest on initiative (rolled, not plus modifiers) runs the enemies for any given encounter.
What if that one "Youkoso Jyapariparke" fan-dubbed Destiny 2 trailer described a race of mechanocytic beings that must maintain coordination in order to not fall apart? In this #worldbuilding post, I elaborate upon the ideas, and suggest some video game mechanics. https://irradiate.space/worldbuilding/dancing-robot-warriors/ #CreativeCommons
Hmm. It's quite possible that Mycroft Canner's narration style is growing on me. My last three stories in order written:
https://irradiate.space/stories/the-witch-daily-cast/ Has an appeal to the reader.
https://irradiate.space/stories/becoming-a-mouse/ Was a second-person directly addressing the reader.
https://irradiate.space/stories/return-to-the-moon/ The author is present in the story being told as "I" and writes for "you".
