Hey, readers! Me again, bringing you another random post. I wanted to play around with the idea of book genres, and babies, and… Well, basically, this is how it works:
Pick out a pair of genres. Doesn’t matter which you pick–you can plot it out based on characters, like I did, OR just pair them off and go from there. Then imagine what that pairing MIGHT result in, if genres could get pregnant. And voila!
If Book Genres had Babies, their Kids would Be…
Humor + Erotica
Poet, from Trick (Natalia Jaster)
Steampunk + Space Opera
Marvin, from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Douglas Adams)
Adventure + Utopian
Peter Pan! (from, well, duh.)
Tragic Romance + Science Fiction
Melanie, from The Girl with All the Gifts (M.R. Carey)
Horror + Historical
Okiku, from The Girl from the Well (Rin Chupeco)
Fluffy Romance + Dystopian
Iko, from The Lunar Chronicles (Marissa Meyer)
Poetry + Western
Roland, from The Dark Tower Series (Stephen King)
If book genres had babies in YOUR world, what characters would they be?! Feel free to make up your own pairs/results–just link back so I can see what you come up with!
Until next time, happy book-ing!
