A Bit About Me

Greetings, inhabitants of Terra! My chosen pseudonym/nethandle here is Spyglass, though WorldBuildersInc is the moniker I operate under in some form or another across the greater web. I'm 18, and I go by he/him (but they/them is fine too). I just got accepted into Florida Tech's astrobiology program so if all goes well with finances I'll be doing my undergraduate major there and may even get to work with NASA on some Mars or Europa mission stuff!
When I'm not actually doing my coursework or managing my Instagram astronomy page, I am entirely occupied by worldbuilding; that is, the practice of constructing detailed fictional realms in multiple media. My current count for ongoing original fictional universes lies at 8, with a number of collaborative endeavors (and one independent fancomic) to boot. You can find all of the sites on which I lurk through my Linktree if you wish to learn more about any of these. Most of these worlds are based heavily on science, whether established, theoretical, or plausibly speculative. I'm always looking to learn more about pretty much everything.

> The independent production/collection and storage of energy within the entity in question for biological…
