    Sometimes, your mind's eye is just a bit too fuzzy and inaccurate to really picture what it is you're trying to write. Here's a thread to post pictures, videos, and artwork that helps you visualize certain elements of your work. It can be of anything, really, from innocuous photoshops to epic art to glitched images and anything in between.
    You can give whatever name you want for them, but if it was already called something, it's best to use that one and credit the creator.

    For example:
    Spinal Whip

    Electrokinesis

    Glitched-out image of a city looks like a portal from Hell

    What reality feels like. We're so used to the choppy low-res nature of sub-4K sub-60fps gifs and videos that we've almost forgotten what "lifelike" really means.

    Because there are (thankfully) no images of a nuclear explosion occurring in a city or around anything we can use for scale, a lot of people have no idea how huge those iconic mushroom clouds really are. Some seriously believe that a "big" nuclear explosion is about the size of a skyscraper!
