The main character is a misfit living with his mother. There are no supernatural or preternatural elements in the story aside from the protagonist's psychosis (he believes that he is living in a tolkienesque fantasy world), but his psychosis is extremely important in defining his actions.

Would this be on-topic as described?

    I'd say off topic - try Movies & TV instead, but I could be wrong.

    Duplicate of Are works that may or may not just be dreams on topic?. The consensus of opinion was that works are on topic if they have a significant fantasy content, regardless of the source

    @Valorum that would be difficult to judge, I mean how much fantasy content is "significant". Commented Jul 10, 2017 at 7:55

    Further to @Mithrandir's comment, if you do try Movies & TV, please be aware that they have significantly more stringent criteria for ID questions than we do (due to a surfeit of bad ID questions) - see their guidance and lists here.

    @AlienWerepandaolf - Significant (in my book) means "taking up a sizeable chunk of the action or contributing significantly to the plot". Scrubs doesn't count, but Sucker Punch would, for example.
