Wishes | 愿望
When I saw the prompt for the contest, I thought about how you blow out a candle to make a wish for your birthday, and about how important wishes (and wishing i.e. pulling for characters and weapons) is so core to the world and game of Genshin Impact. So, I decided to put together various depictions of wishes from the game: the meteorites that fall from the sky when we wish for characters, Yoimiya's fireworks, Xiao and the Mingxiao lanterns, Venti's dandelions, and Paimon and the traveler twins with a birthday cake.
