My fantasy world looks like a lovely, big garden, with everybody I love in it, and we all live forever with no worries of hunger, illness, war or death. In my fantasy "garden" it is forever spring and summer, although we get all weathers except for snow or frost. But there is always beautiful flowers, trees, bushes, grass, weeds, fruit, wildlife, and anything else you'd find in a peaceful garden. Everybody's happy and there is no anger or sadness or frightening stuff such as fires or cancer.

It probably doesn't make logical sense, but that needn't matter, as it is a fantasy world. Do you have a fantasy world and what does yours look like?

Is this fantasy world something you escape into? Is it in your thoughts or is it basically just your idea of an ideal world?

I really don't have a "fantasy world." I wish I were that creative.

I didn't really have one as a kid, either.

Yes i do have fantasy worlds or imaginary places to escape if im overwhelmed with social situations as example or an oversensory melt down. As an adault you better try not to lose your S*** midst on a street or at work else theyll deliver you into the next asylum. Im a very creative person and used imaginary worlds to survive to i had imaginary friends untill 17 years old. these imaginary sanctuaries help me to find calm, sequrity but to describe them i would fill pages im a detailist.

I only think of my fantasy world when feeling too worried about all the stuff that worries me. It's like a daydream. Well, it is a daydream.

I have too many layers of it. It can be as it is as I recall, or twisted into something absurd or reality breaking based on my likes or dislikes -- or emotions.
Mainly related to my memories -- with all the people I've met and things that actually happened as the main ingredient.

Half the time, I'd play a part in it. Half the time, I don't and wouldn't. :lol: I can't describe them all. It'll be too lengthy. Some are just fragments, some are fullblown worlds with it's own rules and worldly details.



I don't have an 'ideal world'. The closest I have for an ideal world is visually impossible -- only visual indicators would be random lights. The rest is just sensations.
But the closest and shortest description for my own sanctuary would be;
A floating isle above the clouds, gently tailing the Sun's path into an eternal dawn.
On the top of it lies a small house by a waterfall, surrounded by various flora of all shapes and sizes. The fauna is almost nonexistent.
And the world below the thin veil of clouds is a chaotic world where everything is.

As in imagining the kind of place I would want to go to and live in? Yes, several, but these days my fantasies are mostly focused on my idea of an ideal country with ideal laws and rules.

I wrote a whole novel that takes place in my fantasy world. It's a tropical place full of animal people, particularly reptile people. My five best friends are there :D

Well I play a role playing video game set in a fantasy world that sometimes spend hours in. So that's a good escape.

But also I like to pretend the town I live in with all it's old houses and buildings is like a type town in a Stephen King book. The old stately hotel is haunted. That strange looking old building houses a secret cult. There's witches and wizards here and there like in Harry Potter. Vampires and so on. And hey for all I know that's all true, cause the place is weird, maybe even weirder than Portland OR. I hope to someday write a book about it.

I live in London with a British man I am married to and he makes good money that we can live comfortably and afford a home. And the rest would belong in the adult section. Also my British man does not have any feet problems and he does not live in chronic pain and he can work and isn't disabled.

I probably could have made this fantasy come true if I would have talked to guys online from the London area and build a relationship with them and then save up my money to fly out and see them and I might have found a guy over there but I didn't want to risk it. My husband sometimes likes to tease me about this fantasy.

I like to daydream and make up stories in my mind. Sometimes those stories are based on dreams from the night before. Sometimes it's nice to retreat into my mind when I'm stressed or exhausted.

My sister and I had imaginary friends when we were kids and we made them siblings. We shared a world together with our stuffed animals, dolls, and imaginary friends.

My fantasy world would feature a large wooden cabin on the bank of a fresh water lake in a temperate area surrounded by a mixed deciduous forest. My larder and pantries would always be full and my home would be fully charged via a geothermal tap. The light bulbs would last forever and I would have a huge library that contained every book every published. My sole companions would be my cats. There would be no people in this world, no diseases, and no predators. I would live forever, basking in my privacy as the supreme lord and ruler of my idyllic nation state.

In my fantasy world, I get compensation for things I was cheated out of, and so do the people around me, due to some cosmic choreography.

I'm not sure I have a fantasy world but I do live in my head a lot so I would say my fantasy world is a replica of the real world but I'm sort of in control ( not always though )

I used to have a fantasy world. I don't remember much about it, though, so I can't really describe what it was like. The only thing I do remember - and I honestly hate to disclose this - is that I lived there with my imaginary girlfriend.
