I was watching this show and there was this weird, sorta crazy kid no body understood. I thought he was crazy too. But one episode he was almost hallucinating and he started crying. He said something like. "I want to live somewhere magical, but I live in Aberdale. It's all in my head." This little kid had created a story and wanted it to be his reality. Us writers.
