Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is Favorite Tropes from fantasy, sci-fi, and YA. Here we go, in alphabetical order:
The Chosen One - Yes, I know that this has practically been done to death, but I still love it when it's done well.
Complex Morally Gray Characters - All of them please!
Dark, Creepy Fae - Along the lines of Holly Black and Susanna Clarke's take on them.
Dysfunctional Family - Not too out there, but enough to be totally believable.
Enemies to Allies - Think Thor and Loki.
Magic Schools - Yes, please!
Multiverse - I love reading and watching stories featuring parallel worlds. A couple of recent favorites: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Special Powers - Where it's magical or superpowers, I'm totally there for it.
Strong Female Character - I like seeing a kick butt lady, but I'd hope they're well-written, complex, and flawed as well.
Time Travel - I can't resist, especially if it's anything like Back to the Future, Doctor Who, Bill & Ted, Timeless, or The Time Tunnel.
