I think Hiccup is everyone’s husband.

What the heck is up with the “My problem isn’t that my favourite characters aren’t real, it’s that I’m not fictional…” gifset? I mean, what on Earth is that supposed to mean?
I mean, to daydream is one thing but to desire a relatively permanent escapism is something else entirely, especially when the destination of that escapist displacement is, well, not “real” and probably never going to be “real” in any time. It’s a philosophical equivalent of waiting for a Prince Charming.
It also tries to escape our inevitable grounding in our real world, which is our only real link to any world. Consciousness of this world that we live in is the only thing that gives us any perception of existence. Without this link, we lose ourselves — in trying to transcend the “mundane” real world, we actually lose touch with everything. And is our current world truly “mundane” to begin with? “Mundane” is lacking in interest, excitement, and eventfulness. Well, if we live in a fictional world, our perception of that world will be like how we perceive our current world: “mundane”. We get used to things that happen in the world, from our daily schedules to our surroundings to our neighbors. Of course, we often look for routes to temporarily escape that banality, often in the form of a vacation to a relatively exotic place. However, to desire a complete displacement to this exotic place, in a long-term perspective, is simply making one more place banal to you. One can enjoy a trip to Hawaii, but moving to (and living in) Hawaii will be a relatively less exciting experience.
Keeping ourselves vital, therefore, cannot exist in the form of removing ourselves to a different world, since that simply changes our vision of an “ordinary world”. Rather, that vitality has to come from finding special things from our own world. Our universe is filled with so many perfect imperfections: The mathematical imperfection of most tuning systems, the flawed clockwork machine that is natural selection, the mind-boggling behavior of things ranging from subatomic quarks to supermassive black holes, and the simple peculiarity in how people perceive their surroundings, to name a few. Our best bet in keeping ourselves interested is to simply enjoy the unpredictable show that is the Universe.
