Hello Friends, I hope you all are having a wonderful day.
In an attempt to help keep crimson’s head on straight, It’ll be me,
Dio! Jack, posting the roundup for the last month. October was a pretty quiet month overall here at OWLS, but that does not mean the quality was any less.
For the Month of October, we covered the topic of Fantasy and the many interpretations of what it means for something to be fantastical.
In the month of October, we will be exploring the world of fantasy in pop culture. The genre of fantasy focuses on telling stories about our external and internal environments. There are many ways we can interpret the word, fantasy. For example, we can talk about how a fantastical place could glorify what reality should be or the dangers of ideal expectations. Fantasy could also be seen as taking a “wild journey” or a “hallucination” and how that can affect our psyche and well-being. Fantasy can also focus on our personal dreams and expectations and how those expectations do not align with our reality. Overall, our posts will reflect on how we view the fantasy genre and what we can learn about these pop culture mediums.
Examples:Harry Potter, Norn 9, Ancient Magnus Bride
