What to Avoid When Creating a Post-Apocalyptic OC
If you are easily offended, especially regarding characters you have created, please do not read this.
The idea of a post-apocalyptic situation can be appealing to many, whether it be from nuclear warfare (ex. Fallout), zombies (ex. The Walking Dead), diseases (ex. The Last of Us), and more. I am one of those people, and literally, ANY idea of an apocalypse attracts me (with the exception of zombies; I find them to be highly overrated). But I digress: here are a few things I recommend straying from, should you create a character that dwells in a post-apocalyptic world. Before I begin, if anyone believes I’ve missed anything or wants to add their own opinion, feel free to comment below and share your own opinion regarding this topic~

We’re in a radiation/poisonous gas zone? I just happen to have enough gas masks for everyone! We’re low on food? Well, I just happened to come across a store that has TONS of it!
