More thesis ramblings! I refuse to quit rambling about thesis here, it will get my thoughts in order! HERE HAVE A WORK IN PROGRESS-

So now I will ramble more about Elle's world and her position in it. This world is obviously a sort of fantasy world. There's many less people in it, many more forests, monsters, and the like. This world feels like an old storybook, but with a slightly anachronistic feel. You could probably say it's a steampunk world, but i dunno if it's really that steampunk yet. 

The point of this world is that it seems like a scary fantasy world, when it's really a sort of soft scifi. This world is basically one that was once our own, and there are remnants of it here and there. Ruins of metropolis and all that jazz. There are only faint clues as to what happened between then and now. My favorite thing about this world is that this is unexplained, it is not the plot or reason for the story. It is a motif in the background for the audience to know, and make theories about. 

One thing Elle realizes about this world though... is that she doesn't relate to the few humans in it very well. She is a distorted mechanized person after all. She is about 7 feet tall, doesn't move like a normal human, and doesn't know much of the society outside her old home. She still strives to survive, as confusing as it may be... What's stranger though, is that she can travel relatively safely through areas people can not. The places where monsters reside. She is not considered human prey to them, it seems. Some even attempt interacting with her, and she learns to bond with them. 

That's all for now. o 3o
