    Putting the “Fan” in Fan Fiction

    by

    T-minus 3 weeks until the END of the semester! I’m losing my mind. Don’t know if that’s because of the apocalypse or if it’s my work load.

    The Land of the… Survivors?

    by

    I created an accurate as fictionally possible depiction of “The Land” in California by Edan Lepucki. Of course, as the title explains, these characters are in California, however, they travel to a community/part of land that is called “The Land.” When you think of the word land, one may think …

    The Backstory on August

    August, A.K.A. Frida and Cal’s ‘trading partner,’ has even more to his story than we could have ever imagined. He has always been someone who listens to other peoples’ problems before he explains his own story.

    An Apocalyptic Notecard Story
