Real Fantasy is a magazine about interpersonal connections formed in virtual worlds. We are asking for story submissions from people who have used an avatar in any type of online social game or platform. The only requirement is that your story is about a strong memory you made online and still carry with you today.  

We are looking to showcase the lasting impact these virtual experiences have on individual lives, while demonstrating how oneself and their digital persona synchronously exist.


Real Fantasy is looking for stories about memories from online games and platforms of all genres. Examples include meeting a loved one
, leading a raid
, getting banned
, and experiencing the final day of game service
. All stories, whether they are light-hearted or deeply emotional, are welcome. Stories should be told in first person. Limited to one (1) story per person. GLHF.
