* Quite a few people would like to go to Equestria from ''MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'', and some would be more than willing to stay there permanently and give up their humanity in the process. The ''Brony in Equestria'' fan-fiction genre is both popular and reviled for this reason [[GenderBender and]] [[GodModeSue others]].

Some (such as [[https://www.ponychan.net/arch/res/16458.html this guy here]]) go far enough that they hope that Equestria is the afterlife, or at least that the afterlife involves ponies.

* Raise your hand if you're still waiting for your [[Literature/HarryPotter letter of admission to Hogwarts]]. Raise your other hand if you already know which House you'd be Sorted into (or think you do).

She describes it as a cute little house, beautiful flowers in the garden, etc. Then the blind man regains his sight. She worries how he will take his actual surroundings, but he says the clear images of her stories are in his mind and he can now work with her to actualize the fantasy into reality.

A work of fiction with a very [[TheVerse immersive setting]] appears so idealistic and 'perfect' in comparison to boring, everyday life that it causes fans to feel the need to emotionally invest themselves in it. The same carries over to characters in a story, who feel they are leading uninteresting lives. They wish they could live in the stories they love and begin LongingForFictionland.

* This is pretty much the definition of chuunibyou given to the audience in ''LightNovel/ChuunibyouDemoKoiGaShitai'', with the infected person being unsatisfied with reality and immersing themselves within a world of fantasy. In both the anime and the light novels, Rikka plays this the straightest out of the cast.
