A Hobbitual Hazard

| Related | March 13, 2015

(I’m chatting with my younger sister late at night about some writing I’ve been working on.)

Me: “So, I feel like this piece of realistic fiction is really challenging since I usually write fantasy. I mean, how do I make it interesting and realistic at the same time?”

Sister: *mumbles* “Kill all the dragons.”

Me: “Sorry, what?”

Sister: “The dragons are evil. They have to die.”

(I look over to notice her eyes are closed and she seems half asleep.)

Me: *lightly shakes her shoulder* “[Sister], I think you might want to go to bed now…”

Sister: *sits up in alarm* “WHY, ARE THERE DRAGONS?!”

(As much as I love the fact that she dreams about dragons, I’m regretting taking her to see ‘The Hobbit’…)
