About this challenge

Many of us grew up reading fantasy stories; some of us have even written our own fantasy fiction. This is because fantasy is a genre where you can leave your worries about the real world behind and escape to a different reality. As we grow older and itch for a little more magic in our lives, we tend to gravitate back towards these worlds. And of course, with every fantasy land comes a subculture composed of die-hard fans...

Enter the Fan(dom) Favorite Challenge and tell us what is the best fantasy world out there. Is it Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, or something else? Tell us why you believe this story and its legacy is supreme. Is it because the world is more defined and believable? Are the characters more real and relatable? We want to be unequivocally convinced, so argue and defend your home turf, and may the odds be ever in your favor! 🪄
