This is a little post I came up with one day while I was talking to Averie and I thought it would be funny and relatable. I collaborated with my friends to come up with it and I had a lot of fun making it. It’s basically just pokes at the cliches we all love/hate in fantasy!
Rule One: Nothing good ever happens in a throne room
Rule Two: Sometimes incest is ok
Rule Three: If he’s old and has a beard, always listen to his advice
Rule Four: The main character is always special. ALWAYS. (No exceptions)
Rule Five: The more the protagonist denies their powers, the more powerful they will be
Rule Six: Never accept the first villain you meet. There is always someone worse.
Rule Seven: She never ends up with the childhood first love. The new guy always wins.
Rule Eight: If you want to your protagonist to fall in love with someone, make their romance forbidden
Rule Nine: The book must include the evil sentence
Rule Ten: Their must be a 10 year build up of sexual tension
Rule Eleven: Names of characters should be impossible to pronounce
Rule Twelve: Map must be included
Rule Thirteen: Rescue plan going well? Lol ya right
Rule Fourteen: The person they are with in book 2 is never end game.
Rule Fifteen: The wealthy characters are always awful people (unless its the protagonist/love interest)
Rule Sixteen: The heroine must despise the incredibly hot buff guy up until they fall in love
Rule Seventeen: No one’s ever for sure dead
Rule Eighteen: Every castle has a secret passage that will magically solve all your protagonists problems
Rule Nineteen: At least one family member must be dead/die
Rule Twenty: Peeing and periods don’t exist
