Why? Because I want to!

The question for week 35 of the MFRW 52 Week Blogging Challenge is Plots: What period in history and why?
My reply is whenever, wherever, and whatever I think fits because that is how I roll.
My universe has multiple timelines that converge and interact. Like my mind, it is intricate, imperfect, and somewhat difficult to explain, but I will try to break things down.
I was born one day after Valentine’s day in 1965 and have been writing and creating for as long as I can remember. I learned how to read when I was four years old, and by the time I was six, I was reading Edgar Allan Poe. I’ve also loved the old horror comics from that tender age. I love gothic horror as well as mid-twentieth-century horror.
I am honestly not particularly keen on most modern horror. As a rule, I don’t enjoy splatter or exploitation, although I absolutely loved Return of the Living Dead.
I can’t recall my first exposure to science fiction, but I’ve always loved learning about the Universe. My father had a lot of old comics and books and what are now known as graphic novels. I imagine my earliest exposure to sci-fi involved comics such as Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers.
I like paranormal romance if it’s done right. Twilight is most assuredly not my cup of tea. Give me the original Dracula or Fright Night. That, my friends, is the way it’s done.
The ingredients in my writing involve a heaping helping of Lovecraftian steampunk. Incorporate a long-dead world that got screwed over by its inept king’s attempt to master forces that don’t take well to being ordered about. Jump even further back in time to a cosmos held in the sway of unforgiving forces and introduce a pair of nearly omnipotent star-crossed lovers to learn the motivations of a pissed-off witch sired by the powerful trickster god spawned by the embodiment of primordial chaos.
Move ahead in time to the early twenty-first century and meet an unfortunate musician whose cognitive abilities are starting to fail. This self-deprecating chap is at the eye of the raging wibbly wobbly timey wimey temporal storm.
There are dead worlds and damned souls and more timelines than you can shake a stick at, and as for why, the only answer I have is because that’s the way I see it, and if I didn’t see it, I don’t even know if I’d still be here.
