Ugh. Could somebody please replace the Alice & Bob example with one that doesn't feel straight out of a generic Anime? It makes us look too weeaboo-ish, considering that this isn't an Anime-specific trope.

Is this every fantasy sequence, or just those that really contain a Gilligan Cut? (Or at least something like it, because if it has to be an actual Gilligan Cut, that makes this really narrow.) I suspect we have a case of Missing Supertrope here.

I deleted a lot of stuff from the description for the following reason:

The definition of the trope was pretty clear. Although "a combination of a Dream Sequence and a Gilligan Cut" was using both of those tropes slightly wrong, it was clear from the rest what it was getting at. But then the description started going on about fantasy sequences in general. I also realised there wasn't any other trope for those in general. So I made an YKTTW for Fantasy Sequence and explained it was the Missing Supertrope to this and to be used instead where the example wouldn't fit the narrower definition here. No-one commented on this, which was enough for me because I wanted to see if anyone would object that I had it wrong. So now I've removed a lot of stuff from the description here, but note that the original definition actually given has not been changed, only clarified.

I suppose there are a lot of examples needing moving too, but it's hard to tell.
