    You're very wise then.

    Subverting Fantasy Tropes

    I must be out of touch. I didn't realize African women were often depicted as romantically/sexually unattractive.

    Overused tropes that you're totally using anyway

    @Jedi Knight MuseOooo, thanks for bringing up the Princess being forced into an arranged marriage; I know for sure I've done that one! 🙂 I don't have a royal ball, or a masquerade, but there is a dance that is semi-pivotal in my Winter Lord story.

    Story Titles

    A Time Before is my 2018 NaNo, and it's not a prequel, but it is a frame story about a universe that's already dead and gone. Winter Lord is about a vampiric 'tyrant', and he gets his power from the land, and Winter is when he has to perform a ritual to make sure his land stays safe. Secrets in Ashes is actually a really old ghost story of mine, about this girl who finds this old, burnt out farm house, and the two farm hands who died in the fire are still haunting it as ghosts.

    Subverting Fantasy Tropes

    Well, the one that springs immediately to mind is the subversion of the Death God/Goddess trope of being a dark, pale, spooky, grim/glum person. Instead she's a brash, emotional person with red hair, green eyes, and a full figure. I didn't do this because I thought the trope was bad. I liked the dark/grim/mysterious deities of Death. But I just wanted to see what a world would be like without one.

    Story Titles

    Both 'Tears and Roses' and 'Monster Redefined' are vampire stories. 'Tears and Roses' (which I'm not sure would be the final title) is about a girl who goes to the grave of her friend regularly. She's attacked by a vampire there, and rescued by a 'mysterious' stranger, who ends up being her friend, risen as a vampire. 'Monster Redefined' is about a slave owning vampire who ends up with two female slaves that know what he is, and it's about how he deals with them. The title stems from the fact that he, as the vampire, is not the most 'monstrous' character in the story, even though he's the only one openly called a monster.

    Story Titles

    @Xanxa Oooooo, I really like Chimera Obscura. The Veirian Followship and The Sunshine Acolyte both sound very intriguing, and there's something about Carrying a Torch that really caught my attention as well. Thank you for sharing which of my titles you liked. 🙂

    Story Titles

    Oh, these are all story titles, not chapter titles. 🙂 Unless I misunderstood what you meant.

    Another Dumb Question

    No, no roasting Xanxa. We need her alive!

    Story Titles

    I've heard it said that titles can really set up the feeling for a story, the mood or ambiance of it, or even the genre. So I'm curious what people think of the titles I actually have. Just give me your impression on what 'kind' of story they might belong to. And if you have any titles you'd like looked at, we can do that too!

    Battlefield crown [image [prompt]

    Okay, I've finished one. I got interrupted by my son part way through, and I wasn't fully able to pick it back up as strongly as I would have liked, but this is just an exercise, right? Anyhow, it's called The Crown

    Word Prompts (1 -5)

    How are these supposed to work? Do we have to use all those words exactly? Use them as concepts? Do they have to be used in order?

    Advent Day 4: Love Tradition

    In my world, in the Helori culture, the first child born to a woman also signified that she could get married to the father, so the birth and the wedding were celebrated at the same time.

    Overused tropes that you're totally using anyway

    It's not that I feel I have to, or that I need to avoid them. But I really suck at identifying the tropes and now I want to know.

    Overused tropes that you're totally using anyway

    Now I'll have to actually go through TV tropes and see what I've used. I'll see everyone in a year or so. 😛 On a more serious note: I don't often think of my stuff in terms of tropes, so I would have to look at my stuff more carefully.
