making up your own fictional universe
creating an entire history for it
creating characters who have complex back stories
RESEARCHING NAMES WITH MEANINGS THAT CORRESPOND TO THE HISTORY AND UNIVERSE AND BACK STORIES YOU’VE COME UP WITH
then never writing or doing anything with it at all ever
I’m so addicted to doing this you have no fucking idea.
it feels so good tho
I found this gorgeous animated short film, which was directed by Ishida YuYasushi. The stylization and charm reminds me of Studio Ghibli films or anything made by Mamoru Hosoda, the director of Summer Wars and The Girl who Leapt Through Time.
"Curious little beasty"
Fun fact: Young Aurora was played by Angelina Jolie’s daughter, because she was the only little girl who wasn’t frightened by Angelina in costume.
