“Earth 3032” On May 15, 2020 this short science fiction piece was published in Collective Realms Magazine. Humanity went extinct long ago and now Earth is a tourist destination for alien races. However, one human remans in a cryogenic chamber and is awoken by a peculiar group of aliens with different motives.
I enjoy listening to podcasts because there is something relaxing about listening to people chat about various topics. I used to wonder what I would talk about on a podcast, given that I have opinions/thoughts on everything like Leslie Knope. One day I came across an app that made it easy for anyone to start up their own podcast, so I went for it! I titled it Podcasting Until Ragnarok, so it would match my blog, and started by reading some of my short works of fiction. I used my time at home during COVID to work on expanding the episodes and continue to discuss whatever is on my mind that week! My podcast can be found here: https://anchor.fm/selene0 or wherever you listen to your podcasts.
Fanfiction is the main way I practice my writing skills. I have an endless amount of ideas and write for a large variety of fandoms. I like writing fanfiction because it allows me to be creative while forcing me to work inside the already set limitations of the universe. I have to follow the rules that are laid out and ensure the characters I use maintain their key characteristics. While I often use preexisting characters, I enjoy creating my own characters within the parameters of the universe who romance the character(s) of my choice.
