VIRTUAL FANTASIES

Updated on January 10, 2015

Virtual Lovers, Science Fiction and Romance...

Well, here I am still jumping from various subjects trying to figure out if I can stay in one "nitch" in my writing. It seems that I have many interests and as you can see I keep writing about "whatever" I feel like in the moment. One thing is for sure, I do love making up strange fantasies in all forms. I was a huge fan of many of the famous science fiction writers when I was a child and some of the many movies I saw way back when had all sorts of odd stuff happen in them.

One movie in particular had people landing on another planet and human trees trying to capture them and they never did. The music effects when they got close was classic! I often thought of what would happen if they actually did get them? Would they turn into tree people also? Would they blend into the tree and take over the planet? I guess you can say that I have a very odd imagination! Anyway, I thought I would list a few of my "Fantasy Hubs." Some of you have read them and some have not. I'm always thankful for my "virtual friends" who have a great sense of humor!

Sci Fi And Romance By G. Page

I often like to imagine what the future will be like in the digital and virtual age. Will we even need people anymore? Will we need human lovers and friends? It seems that we spend so much time away from others now that everyone will eventually be replaced with some sort of object or lover in another form? Will we ever miss anyone or feel that "emotion" anymore when we have cell phones with video, web cams, texting and facebook? Will "normal" stuff or friends ever be enough anymore?

Well, I like to write about what I see in the future with my own sense of humor mixed in!

      Dear Virtual Agony Aunt

      Please, please help me! I have been with my virtual boyfriend for three months and a week ago I discovered he has been seeing eight other female avatars behind my back on facebook and six of them are now pregnant with his virtual farm animals. One "woman" is expecting piglets, which means he will be the father of thirteen virtual offspring in total and no visible means of supporting them. He always wanted me to look my best and I spent hours choosing the right avatar getting the hair right by playing with my resolution settings and colour palette only to find he has been playing around with other virtual women. Why has he done this? All I ever wanted was a nice reliable piece of computer hardware to integrate my software with so that we could produce many orphaned files together.

      Yours,

      Hopeless from facebook

      viryabo! So nice to see you here! I have been busy saving the world! ha

      You are right about the gadgets! So much fun!!!! I do feel that people will spend more time with gadgets instead of humans.....I know people who are on the computer all day long! Social sites and everything else there is! A robot to clean my house sounds divine! Best, G

      Well .. To be honest , Even the whole world is virtual . IF you think that which you can feel hear is real ..Well only as real as the chemical reaction which makes you think ..THat it is real . The really real reality we can never really feel or comprehend . We can ,only think with what we are able to see , hear , touch ,smell . And we infer , relate , and try to understand and control ..based on what we .. think we see , hear , touch smell ...

      In reality , Everything is virtual . Even this life !

      You are sounding prophetic. LOL!

      This is like seeing into the future. The VERY near future if i may say so.

      In the days when science fiction started to catch peoples attention, little did we (well me really) know that it will be for real, in the not too distant future. Thought all it was is - fiction!

      If and when it comes to a point that we need no more, the human interactions, we probably will just wilt away slowly.

      But in all fairness, can we really resist these wonderful gadgets? I can't. Wish i had a robot to clean and dust my home.

      And i still love the subjects you write about. Always interesting.

      Great article G.

      David! I always love to hear from you! I have my nitch in place as far as publishers are concerned. I'm only shopping Fiction right now with a sci fi and romance element to different media (book publishers, agents and other) . My first novel is for young adults in this genre. I just need an outlet for all of my interests and hubpages has been good for this....I DO enjoy writing about a lot of things.....I guess my following here is mostly in the "contemporary" genre.....I hope things are going well with your projects!

      Kaie....thank you for your "virtual friendship!" I appreciate everything you say!

      I DO love living in the real world, but when I hit a sort of road block I start dreaming up an imaginary world! Fun really! I think most of the projects that I write for publishers will be more along these lines. Sci Fi Romance! My first novel is for young adults and has a lot of "out there" elements to it....ha

      ARWEN NOTES YOUR GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR. BUT THERE'S A BUG IN BEING A JITTER BUG WRITER, IF YOU WANT TO GET SERIOUS WITH THE WRITING BUSINESS AND GET AN AGENT OR PUBLISHER, MOST PROBABLY YOU"LL HAVE TO DEFINE YOUR BEST NICHE. PICK A CATEGORY WHERE YOU CAN BE FOUND EASILY BY INTERESTED READERS OR ELSE STAY "FREE LANCE" AND DANCE TO YOUR HEART'S CONTENT. DAVID RUSSELL

      Your sense of humor prevails................. :-D

      Virtual friends are fun, but they will never replace the emotion or warmth...... that's what makes us human. The concept is great though.......... I've always been a pushover for both fantasy and science fiction, and there have been moments when I thought I've lived in both (ah, maybe it was actually a horror story; I think I lived with Mr. Hyde for a spell!), but we won't talk about that......... it's good to be living in the real world!

      Loved the links..........

      HH! Thanx for always being here and leaving your lovely comments.....

      I was just reading an old romance novel suggested by another hubber here and it was so funny when a character in the book mentioned that their "beeper" was sounding off.....

      We will know when books and movies are made because of all of the gadgets!!.....G
