Travelling at speeds close to that of light, spacemen lived at an accelerated pace..

Love Never Changes by StarFleet Carl

The world ends on October 23, 2077. Tina Wilson seems to be the Sole Survivor of Vault 111 after the nuclear holocaust. Her life, and what she does after leaving, is this story. This is a fanfic based upon the Bethesda Softworks game Fallout 4. I have included a foreword for those not familiar with the world, but knowledge of what happened is not necessary. The world is Bethesda's, what the characters do is mine. Some rather explicit sex at points when important to the characters.

Outward Bound by Mark Randall

A story in the Asteroid Hunters Universe
This is the story of the 'Seward's Folly,' just returned from an expedition to the belt. It is about the preparations they make for their next trip. This will be different from any other trip to the belt. They are heading towards the far side of the belt. Virgin, uncharted territory. This story can be read by itself. But I recommend that you at least read 'Mosley Station' first.

R/red63tennis by Gerald Armitage

A writing prompt that I decided to build out into a story. I was thinking of the old twist at the end pulp stories in terms of the genre with a bit of a supra-normal element. A Reddit subreddit called r/red63tennis has some strange coincidences until one of its users seeks some help. It's a short piece but I had fun writing it.
