Rivendell, perhaps. 

Jackson got it *very* right.

Some others, but I am not sure they are entirely fictional.  I was sure that R'lyeh was imaginary, but then... no, it's too horrible.


Cheers!

"...it's a form of fiction, and as such, while there may be times when it's considered a worthy vehicle for pointing out some of society and individual flaws - I still want a side that will let there be lighthearted adventures in the clouds, on mars, or under the sea."

Either Discworld or my own personal fictional world. The only parts of it that've been published in any way are the parts mentioned in Til the End of Time -- And After. All the rest is unpublished and MINE, mwa ha ha ha...

I think this might of been covered with the happy place thread

buuuut,

At this round mahogany table, Me, Zach, and Cornelius the ceramic bust sitting around it. There is pitch black all around it and a light shining from a nondescript place.
Me and Zach are the same person, but Zach is an old man.
I'm smoking a pipe, Zach's sitting, hands clasped on the table, Cornelius, he's a bust, he just sits there.
And we chat. Even Cornelius, which is best explained with using subtitles.


I'm not crazy.
