Day 10 → What are some really weird situations your characters have been in?
What’s weird, in fantasy? When I think of weird situations, I think of sitcom slapstick… and because of that I’m having difficulty answering this question.
Marin finds a graveyard with actual ghosts, but which is weirder, the haunting or the large plot of marijuana growing in the woods behind the graveyard?
Jouet gets transformed into a giant owl. In her world, that’s not as strange as falling in love with a mortal man.
Meyer has to depend on a cat to act as translator for a dragon (because dragons don’t talk to humans, but cats are OK). The cat in question, Riddle, has lived nine actual lives. Meyer is Jouet’s brother-in-law and is a parallel universe incarnation of Jouet’s deceased lover.
Lolo has two guardian angels living with her that take the bodies of stuffed animals (plushies, not taxidermy) when they aren’t in angel form. The unicorn, Louie, was the guardian angel of Lolo’s past life. Buttercup, a little cow, is Lolo’s guardian angel. The angels’ plushies are dolls I had when I was little.
I like magic. When the world is magic, it gets weird all over.
