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."

I've yet to see a place that doesn't exist listed.

sorry, but they're all real, somewhere.

Yes. That city. I just want one of those  Makers that aren't high off of the stuff for machines...

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 All the rest is unpublished and MINE, mwa ha ha ha...

Hogwarts!  ;D

I would have said Middle Earth except it was an area/lane off of my old street so that makes it real. :D

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.
Learn to listen to the world around you first, you will find the words you need from living.

Silent Hill! Though I'd imagine it would be quite a bore if you weren't insane/involved with insane shenanigans.
