About this submission
I believe that fantasy has the ability to impact people in a way that subverts what is expected and opens minds to new possibilities. With Symbiosis, I focused on the internal struggle between a man and his need to fit in, which was personified by The Monster. While imaginary friends may disappear as one gets older, the voice in your head telling you to do something out of the ordinary should always be given an outlet. This story personified my personal experience about how it feels to be expressive in a world with strict rules and established expectations.
