A Misunderstood Translation Of “A Mimir” Leads To A Surge Of Adorable Fan Art

About

A Mimir is a Spanish babytalk mispronunciation of the phrase “A Dormir” (To sleep) that grew popular in the social media sites like Twitter, Reddit, and Tumblr after the Japanese artist ᴰʳ.ᴍᴏʀɪᴄᴋʏ responded to a fan using the phrase.

Origin

While the phrase “A Mimir” has been a popular way to refer to characters being tucked in beds or sleeping in Spanish speaking communities, it didn’t have a noticeable spread in the English and Japanese communities until June 6th, 2020, when the twitter artist ᴰʳ.ᴍᴏʀɪᴄᴋʏ shared a drawing of a little black kitten tucked on a bed (shown below, left). An hour later the user “Brujita Verde” responded to the drawing with the phrase, prompting the artist to ask what it meant and using the phrase after it was explained to her (conversation showed below, center and right).

A few days later on June 15th, 2020, the artist shared a second drawing of a little bear and a white kitten tucked on a bed sShown below, left), alongside the phrase “Two Mimir” (shown below, right), mistakenly thinking that the original phrase meant a tiny creature called Mimir.
