Whether you are familiar with my work on YouTube or not, you may or may not know that I’ve created a “virtual” universe known as “Rift World” which contains a variety of characters I’ve created and portrayed, many of whom are inspired by H. P. Lovecraft’s works, many others who are inspired by others works of fiction or draw from life itself. I call it a “virtual” universe because, unfortunately, I have not yet committed anything to paper. That’s because I am not a writer. Or at least, not yet (or not ever!!).
For now, all of these characters reside in a universe known as “Rift World”. Within Rift World lies Arkham Sanitarium where many of these characters work and live. There is also a video series I once ran known as “Letters from the Apocalypse” where viewers mailed in physical letters, often on paper made to look weathered and burned. The character who ran that series played the role of someone that supposedly gathered these letters that were found scattered to the wind in a post-apocalyptic world.
Since late 2017 I have been toying with the idea of creating a fanfiction website where people who enjoy the universe I’ve created can place themselves within it as a participant, such as a patient of the sanitarium or even a doctor, or simply write their own story of fictional events regarding the universe and its characters.
As of the date of this writing am I still spinning the wheels regarding how to setup and launch the website. I have a basic idea and the tools I need, I just need to think it out some more before it becomes official.
So for those of you who are looking forward to this, I hope it will happen sooner than later. For now, stay tuned, and feel free to write something for when the time comes, which I hope will be before the end of 2018.
All my best,
