Philosophy[]

Snowdrop's values are centered around:

  • Beauty
  • Etherealness
  • Imagination
  • Individuality
  • Love
  • Passion
  • Romanticism
  • Self-Expression
  • Wonder

As for Snowdrop's values, they are expressed in different ways. One is to be beautiful (in more ways than simply external appearance) and ethereal, to see the world through romanticism and wonder, seeing the beauty in many things, to interact with the world by expressing one's self and individuality, to be passionate and romantic.

Love is an important part of Snowdrop. Love doesn't solely have to be of one kind. Love may mean a love for one's lover, a love for one's art, etc. It involves passion.

Snowdrop mainly involves romanticism and wonder in approaching one's reality. It can also involve escapism using one's imagination.

Snowdrop isn't solely focused on happiness and tranquility (in fact, it often has very little to do with being truly calm). It involves the ethereal and romanticism in all. The beauty in melancholy is seen through romanticism, tragedy can be devastatingly beautiful (think Swan Lake); in this way, Snowdrop can be made to have overlap with darker aesthetics, so long as it retains its core nature of etherealness and romanticism.
