Horror Literary Fiction Science Fiction Romance Other Dimensions quantum physics lgbtqia+ metaphysics The Beatles gay non-linear lgbt breakup slipstream

This story first appeared around last year's Valentine's Day, and ironically, it's a love story about a breakup.

This is my queer unabashed love letter to all things metaphysical. It also came straight out of one of the weirdest dreams I've had. (Why thank you, my subconscious.)
