Help me find non-boring media that wraps you in a warm (or fierce) blanket of compassion or simply leaves you with a sense of gentle warmth, safety, or contentment?
Examples that have done this for me in my distant past (I don't always know why):
So maybe themes like: meeting of minds, coming to know each other, accepting each other, finding one's place, finding acceptance, learning to feel compassion and acting on it, people ultimately being there for each other (in unlikely and needed and appreciated ways), non-martyring but still meaningful sacrifice, connection and wisdom and hope and safety and contentment in a fucked up world, those sorts of things.
Please be obvious! Don't assume *of course* I already know about book/movie/show X!
I'm also looking for this stuff in unlikely places, kids books, science fiction and fantasy, cartoons, with a pattern over time of: random scenes, fleeting looks or moments of understanding, surprising and moving depth, real characters and interactions, in something otherwise focused on light and noise and shiny fun, in a way that drives the plot forward, sometimes subtly, but always woven through.
Most importantly... did it leave you with that calm, safe, warm, glow?
