It lives in you... Fantasy that is!

All right, I had a bit of a lion king 2 moment, but I mean hey, that's was a great opening song *opens Spotify to play the song.*

So last month we talked about how fantasy was ultimately a part of our everyday life and how it just evolved into something we no longer see as fantasy, but rather as science or ideas.

Well, this month we are gonna slightly expand on that a little, but more so in the reading community. Now if you couldn't tell, fantasy is my favorite genre because I truly believe it is combined with all the other genres.

If you take this photo, for example, you can see romance in passion. Their clothes might suggest historical fiction, but to me, the picture itself has a fantasy feel. It might have some action, judging from the sword. I have no clue why, but I feel like fantasy can be identified in these dark blue color schemes. I know that isn't fact, it's just a feeling for me. It doesn't stop there, a lot of purples do it as well.


Now look at this photo. This one screams action and adventure as well. It reminds me a bit of Lord of the Rings, which we all know is fantasy with a lot of action and adventure with a sprinkle of romance (even if most of it is a bromance between Gimli and Legolas). This is just yet another example of how fantasy worlds closely resemble our own as well include a mixture of other genres that we love.

Now I'm not saying other genres don't have multiple genres included in them, because that would be a flat-out lie. I just feel like real life is constantly a mix of horror, romance, and adventure. So I think mixing real life with a fantasy aspect makes it so relatable while at the same time makes you feel like you're in a whole new world...

That's two Disney quotes in one post and I think I better leave before I ask to be a part of your world.
