destruction sought, destruction found / three lovers sadly doomed.
My themes for this short fiction roundup are time travel, alternate universes, and portal fantasies. As a reader and as a writer, I’ve always loved stories with magical doorways to other worlds, time-travel shenanigans, and multiverses where other versions of us might have turned out very differently than we did.
In worldbuilding your own fictional afterlife, be aware of how the rules of your storytelling may accidentally erase those identities. Your marginalized character may have a place in your living world, but in light of those marginalizations, ask yourself: where will you place them when they die?
