Hiraethcore is an aesthetic based on a longing for fictional places, characters, and worlds, imagining fictional scenarios and walking around the world, looking for fantasy. Core is also closely related to the protection of the planet's environment. This aesthetic is connected with The Lord of The Rings and Harry Potter films and books, but it can include basically every fictional place. People who live in Hiraeth the aesthetic, often are maladaptive daydreamers and they can sometimes seems absent, but not always.

"Hiraeth" is a Welsh word that does not have a direct English translation. It was defined by Jenny Colgan in her novel "The Café by the Sea" as "a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home that maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for lost places in your past.”
