What if . . .
THERE’S A PARTY GOIN’ ON RIGHT HERE . . .
I had a thought the other day–what would it be like if characters from my various books and series showed up for a bash. Who’d come? Who’d send regrets? Who’d talk to whom, and who’d be most likely to wind up with a lampshade on his/her head?
Silly, I know. But I could picture it.
From the Sazi–Tony might make it–but only if Sue dragged him along. Might be fun if he brought Carmine, Linda and Babs along. Raphael and Catherine would surely be there, dancing carefully around the inevitable issues with Tatiana, who’d show up on Lucas’ arm decked in diamonds. If the Monier family arrived it could get VERY interesting indeed. I’d hope that Raven could come, but he’d probably be on the road somewhere.
From the Thrall world I’m sure Kate Reilly would make it with Tom. So would Carlton–who I imagine would be the life of the party, towering over everyone and chowing down on hot wings.
Of course, there’d be LOTS of food, very heavy on the protein offerings. After all, you do not want your shapeshifters getting hungry.
Music would be tricky. What to play? Hmmnnnn. Some of these shapeshifters have been around a LOOONG time. Others, not so much. Should there be dancing? Might be fun. Or not.
Having the Fae show up from the new reality would be interesting as well. How would the shapeshifters deal with creatures even more exotic than they? And what do you suppose a Doxie would smell like?
But any way you slice it, it would be unforgettable–and more than a little dangerous. All those predators . . . And they might not be that happy with me. I mean, seriously, I put my characters through a LOT of crap. Maybe it’s just as well they CAN’T come off the page and in my living room.
But it’s sure fun to imagine.
