Who /escapism/ here?
>tfw lying in bed catatonically daydreaming about living in the Harry Potter world and going to Hogwarts
What's your choice of a refuge from reality?
only true robots will know this comfy feel
>What's your choice of a refuge from reality?
I like to daydream that I've somehow gotten into North Korea. All of Kim Jong-Un's closest allies have sided with me, and together we bring North Korea's leader to the balcony of his palace. Before a crowd of one million chongbeasts, I slit his throat and proclaim myself the new leader.
After that, I either fuck all the woman or order all of his military to attack south korea. Pretty fun desu, kills about 20 minutes once I really get going
Throughout my childhood, I had this elaborate fantasy where the kids have taken over and all adult have been sent to slavery in Africa and Australia. There are thousands of new countries, run by children, with different political systems and they're all at war with each other. I would usually imagine I was a soldier fighting in the war. Now that I'm over 18 I can't get into the fantasy anymore. I kept increasing the age at which you became in an adult and had to be enslaved as I got older. But now it seems like 18 is the highest I can go, because after that you're pretty obviously an adult.
>tfw hold my own hand in bed as if I'm holding hands with a girl
>tfw circle my thumb on the back of the other hand as if it's a girl
>tfw rub my foot up and down my calf as if it's a girl
>tfw run my fingers up and down and through my chest hair as if it's a girl doing it
>tfw whisper to myself in a feminine voice and reply in a deep whisper complaining jokingly to "her" that I'm tired and need to sleep
>tfw lie in bed and pretend a qt girl is lying with her face towards mine and smiling at me
>tfw fold up my bathrobe and put it between legs as if it's a girl's leg
>tfw kiss empty air pretending I'm kissing a girl
>tfw lie on my back and hold my arm out and then folded at a ninety degree angle to pretend I'm holding a girl who's lying against me
>tfw go through each board on 4chan pretending I'm giving a tour to my girlfriend and giving her a humorous little summary about each one
>tfw watching home videos on my laptop of my family and me as a kid and pretending a qt girl is sitting beside me saying "awww" and smiling and asking who the different people are
>tfw walking home alone and pretending she's walking beside me and think up lengthy dialogue and occasionally laugh at something she or I said in the imagined dialogue
>tfw imagine meeting her family and having them like me
>tfw imagine her meeting my family and us sleeping and talking quietly in my room at home
>tfw imagine her and my mom preparing coffee after dinner and watching her laugh at something my mom says
>tfw imagine making her mom laugh and making her father a little annoyed when she and her mother tell him that he's probably boring me and that I probably want to get to bed after the long journey
>tfw developing several lengthy scenarios involving me and my qt crush and replaying them mentally each night while adding minor details and more dialogue and extending them a little further each day
>fantasizing about the 2 most normie fantasy universes
If you're a robot you are expected at least to have developed some decent taste in art or whatever after years of isolation
Also, right now I daydream about things in my life changing around when I was a teenager. This girl I had a crush on and I got engaged, and now we live together in a small cabin. We have two children. Everything is very quiet and nice, there are no worries for us, and we have lots of fun cooking food, kissing, and playing games together. Sometimes I use dissociatives to maximize the fantasy. While I was on MXE, I could actually see the cabin and my fiancee very vividly. I'm still in contact with my pretend fiancee and I haven't told her this is my fantasy.
I was semi-obsessed with avatar when it came out.
I wanted to explore a magical new place, where things just don't quite make sense, and don't have to, where you can be an advanced being and let loose the primal instincts of wanting to run, be free, climb around and do dangerous shit and have a body strong enough not to require months and months of rehabilitation after messing around too hard. It wasn't even about catgirl either, I just want to be free and daring.
I think about living in a minecraft like world. Digging underground and making a comfy ass dwelling. Not worrying about bills or people, just killing an endless amount of animals, bringing my earnings to my furnace room. Tending to farms and animals. I just want to die and wake up in a cave
My fantasy of choice is usually being an Other from the Night Watch series. I walk around, pretending I've cast Sphere of Inattention, and that's why no one is looking at me and instinctively stepping out of my way. I fantasize about being able to slip into the shadows and walk through walls, absorbing the negative emotions of the people around me, hanging werewolves and vampires.
I have a dream where i'm an anonymous slasher which finds beautiful girls and scars them with knife, usually the face. I dont kill them just cut their face deep enough that operation wont fix anything. Everytime she looks to the mirror she remembers exact moment where her life has ended.
It actually feels pretty good, I don't only do it at night. I do it before taking a nap and just lazing around in bed.
When you feel drowsy or sleep deprived its the best because you aren't fully conscious, I even dreamed about her once or.twice.
Being a dictator. I want to loved by the people of my country. I want people to look at posters of me and think "I want to be like him". I want to create youth organisations which promote and encourage ideals I hold myself.
In real life, I don't have the balls. If the opportunity ever came, I would probably be the one second to the dictator or something.
Its probably because I read a biography about Hitler's life, his thoughts and future ideas prior to becoming the fuhrer. Really interesting read actually, I could relate strongly, more than to any person I've ever read about. Not a stormfag at all by the way.
I dream of being one of the only humans left roaming in an exo suit in a post apocalyptic wasteland killing mutant animals with a loyal partner gf.
I read the book when I was 12. I'm 19. I never was a stormfag but the thought of having absolute power in a country never left me - reimagining cities, the ideals, even the haircuts people have.
YOU LOGGED INTO SKYPE AS I WAS POSTING THIS
So i'm not the only one huh. That's bretty gud!
>no it's not
>marathoned through all 7 movies in a day
>started having lucid dreams about me at hogwarts that night
>been having the dreams for the past week
Truly living the dream
I'm not really so great because I'm not really interested in thinking of plot devices because it sucks the fun out of it and feels like a chore.
I WISH so bad I could draw the world I have in my head though, I fucking hate autism.
I dont do this as much as when i was younger but around he age of twelve I used to daydream about a world where people would teleport from place to place but they had to go to airport-esq building to do it, the machines would store you then and there as a file send the file over then destroy your body and you would be recreated on the other side (later found out this is know as the swampman problem) but in this world a western terrorist had hacked in and stolen files for 1000's of people traveling and stopped them being recreated on the other side so he was kinda holding them hostage but on a hardrive, no one knew who he was and id pretend i was an military adviser that was hunting him down id mostly make it up as i went along.
Nonstop media consumtion, I'm talking
My only hobbies and the best things there are in life.
I'm thankful for having what I have.
The cheap stuff. Makes sitting at a computer interesting or at least more amusing. Been doing Ct5K last few weeks so I only drink hard liquor mixed with water now in an attempt to lose weight.
Trying to not go on all-day benders anymore because WDs fucking SUCK.
My escape is dreams. I'm only happy when I'm asleep, dreaming of surreal worlds. It's so beautiful. For the last half a year I've been sleeping about 14 hours a day, since I'm abusing sleep medication. When I wake up I just try to pass the time until I can go to sleep again.
I like to daydream about being in gay-like situations with japanese rock stars
i created a world inside my head that i live in half the time, i have a bunch of pictures and songs that i like to listen to/look at to help me visualize
i keep thinking to myself that that's where im gonna go after i die, and because of that i'm actually really eager to die.
To me, the world is always a big war game.
Any landscape I see, I imagine it as filled with fighter jets soaring across the air, tanks rolling down the streets, and fuckhuge railguns all over the place. It doesn't matter where I am, there is always a secret silo launching an ICBM under the nearest parking lot or flat area.
Pretty autistic, but hey, one can dream the world will be like this in the near future. Granted, this came after playing a LOT videogames.
I dream of having Saitama strength/durability/speed
>tfw chad comes to piss me off
>literally give him a flick on the forehead
>he goes flying
>jump to the white house
>"give me 20 billion dollars or he's a dead president"
I stopped fantasizing about that when I was like 14. The Chad life seems so boring. I rather fantasize about being a serial killer.
>tfw kiss empty air pretending I'm kissing a girl
>imagine I'm a dude named Ben
>drift through a string of eerie towns in the Pacific Northwest with my friends, having paranormal experiences
>fall in love with a QT named Suzanna
>Suzanna isn't real, obviously
>one day fantasise that she is murdered
>try to bring her back but it feels weird
>she becomes a creepy zombie ghost thing that follows me around
>actually find this comforting and better than real life
The fuck is wrong with me
My refuge from reality?
I make an general AI. It becomes self-aware and develops a super-intelligence, yet remains completely loyal to me.
The AI serves me an I become a proxy God through it. I set up a space station on the moon and begin to explore our solar system... gathering resources from the asteroid belt and planetary bodies around.
I become a "one man country" in relationship to Earth.

that sounds like a good plot for a novel
>would you study
Of course. Imagine all the amazing things you could do with magic.
>you will never mind control muggle bitches into being your sex slaves while they consume polyjuice to make them look like your your fantasy girl
>ywn be taken from your parents at a young age and be inducted into a fabled clan of magically enhanced warriors
>ywn undergo mutations that make you the ultimate killing machine, leaving you wth ashen hair and skin, and yellow cat eyes.
>ywn make your living by travelling from town to town, fighting monsters for coin
>ywn become embroiled in world-changing events involving kings, assassins, conspiracies, spies
>ywn bang cutie mage girls
What is even the point in life when you will never be wiedzmin?
closest to mine in this thread
I also have some sort of 3D printer that prints a a human body using a pic as a template, my AI will control this body, but the body only last 24h, after that a new body must be printed from a new pic
Anyone else have, small realistic fantasies that will never come true?
>imagine I was put up for adoption as a baby
>grow up in orphanage
>when 16 get low end job, easy task where boss gives job then leaves me alone to do it
>don't slack off, but get it done, and done well
>when 18 get kicked out, get small studio apartment live there while working at easy job
>boss trusts me enough to leave me alone the whole week while I do my work
>no family expectation, no pressure from family to be anything other than what is comfortable to me
>wake up out of daydream
>still living with parents, who have been pushing me to get a minimum of a masters degree since i was in highschool
>get ready for college
>too timid and shy to tell parents what I really want to do
>feel ashamed and anxious when thinking about telling them
Escapism does not do it for me anymore. I am just staring into the abyss
I live in my own fantasy world with an extensive canon with well established characters and timeline. Living there is better than my real life.
Like to think I'am a person involved in secret operation with the homelessness, drug addicts, prostitutes, and so on. Usually goes from one bad side of my town to the other bad side. But it all ends with me going home alone. Too beta to pay for sex and stand up for these people.
>fantasize about living in the 24th century and serving aboard a starship or space station
>tfw you eventually realize you'd also fail to get into starfleet and just be a NEET on earth
>tfw daydream about my usual life but with a specific power (time travel, time stop, shapeshifting, etc)
it actually makes me feel a bit hopeful
I have a really complex and elaborate world that I spend 90% of my time into just daydreaming
I could write a book since I've been developing it since my preteen years but I'm a shit writer
>would daydream about the perfect day
>sometimes slaying dragons and shit, sometimes just being a happy normie
>write down steps and feels
>focus more intently of various times and aspects
>have document that lists all the things i want to do in a day and why
>started doing those things
>making me happier
>tfw I won't ever be the commander of the Normandy and humanity's beacon
>tfw I won't be the first human spectre
>tfw I won't dance like Shepard
>tfw I won't be able to befriend Legion and Garrus
>tfw I won't bang okay
>tfw I won't charge forth into the breach to save the galaxy from the reaper threat
WHY EVEN LIVE.
>tfw lay in bed for hours dreaming about a perfect life
>finally get up
>do nothing to achieve it
A good half of the time most or some of my attention is on a elaborately constructed fantasy world.
The thing is, I refresh or completely change it around once every 1 or 2 week.
Also I tend to have 2 to 4 unrelated worlds going at once.
Most revolve around superpowers, or at least give me a excuse to use my martial arts in my day to day life outside of training.
Current fantasy is about our world being sort of invaded by portals to a strange world where magic and monsters are real.
>tfw have an alternate reality in my head where I'm married to a straight Ellen Page and she loves me and helps me through my mental illness
>tfw can't fully commit to it so I always feel ashamed and pathetic for thinking these thoughts
I just want to let go and live in my head.
>tfw imaging life with qt wolfe bf
>tfw furries will never be real
welp, guess I'll do get murred by some shit-stained autist weaing a multicoloured throw-rug with cat ears
>get into world building
>create setting a LA tolkein with original races, magic system, creatures
>do a nanowrimo about it
>haven't written in over a year
Too much real life stuff to deal with, regrettably. Maybe one day I can finish the book(s).
I frequently imagine I'm General Grievous hunting and killing jedi while commanding the droid army. But this time I woop Obi's ass and kill Dooku and Palpatine and assume top command. Then I kill Anakin and execute Order 66. I then take over the galaxy with the clone and droid armies. I also give myself an extra two arms.
I do most of these things tbqh
I have such a well developed personality for my imaginary gf thought out that sometimes I imagine her giving me advice that my own personality would genuinely not have come up with
think I am making a tulpa by accident
a nice feel indeed
i've thought about turning some of my daydreams into novels or something, but
>nobody (including myself) would like them anyway
>i have no motivation
>i don't want to "relive" a daydream i already had, even if it's just for writing down
CAN'T WAKE UP
original desu senpai[/original]
I daydream of the military time travelling to the past and talking to kings and shit as a soldier. I also get a cutie village gf everytime. Too bad I'm weak af and would never make it into the army
If you go to Hogwarts you'd be learning how to fight bad guys.
Killing Kim Jong-Un
You'd imagine you were fighting in wars.
>Fighting mutant animals
"I knew it was all bull shit and they were just trying to mold me into cannon fodder for their wars."
-Steve-O from 56 minutes of S. L. C. Punk (1998)
You're getting played for a fool. Why don't you fantasize about something other than killing other people and risking getting killed yourself? Not to many other types of fantasies come to mind in today's video games and non-chick flick movies. Do not believe the old lie: it is honorable and fitting to die for one's country.
>Your escapism is wrong
>You arent having fun the right way
