Fantasy and Asperger’s is a series of essays that I’ve written in third characters with Asperger’s and the imaginary world that they live in. The two characters in question (Juniper Chadwell (Adventures in Esworth) and Caleb Ketterbridge (The Legend of the Wizard)) have lived in a world that does not understand them, and because they are misunderstood very few people treat them right.
Juniper reacts by jumping into the pages of her favorite novel “The Trees of Light” and refuses to come out (despite the fact that everyone else wants her to start acting like a teenager) and Caleb (who is trapped in his room 24/7) has no one to talk to except for his stuffed animals.
Yet, when they do end up in their own fantasy worlds, they quickly discover that the fantasies that they had conjured pale in comparison to the worlds they now inhabit.
I will get back to you the minute I have placed them in their own worlds.
