Title: "Pumpkin-Fantasy"
Post by: sirogit on February 08, 2005, 03:05:53 AM
I wanted to comment on this term: I find it ncrediblyi usefull as a description for both the atomsphere I'm most intereasted in and typically use as an non-roleplaying author(Outside of fantasy), its short description in TSOY sums up a concept I've put some strain into nailing down.

Could you describe some more of your expiereince with the term, its sources of inspiration, etc etc?

Click around, and you'll see what I mean. Think Tim Burton, The Wizard of Oz, young adult fantasy that doesn't suck, a dash of anime, and The Dark Crystal. I really can't explain it better besides this:

It's fantasy that is dark in color, but hopeful in heart.
