A to Z Challenge: Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong

This year, I am once again taking part in the April adventure that is the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. For those unfamiliar with the concept, it's basically about 26 posts (we don't post Sundays), preferably on a theme, blogging our way through the alphabet from A to Z. My theme this year is all about TV Tropes, celebrating random tropes with some sort of weird, odd, unusual, controversial, or taboo element that appeals to my warped sense of literary adventure.

Continuing the theme, we have Face Full of Alien Wing-Wong (check out the page for a complete definition, but your first guess is probably pretty close to the mark). After a quick perusal of the Literature examples provided, I've gotta go with:

"The Wraeththu, from Storm Constantine's eponymous series, reproduce by injecting their blood on a human male, who then transforms into one of the androgynous anemone-penised mutants. Optionally, they can just have "relations" with a human being...but in that case, their "secretions" would prove fatal to the human."

  1. That does not sound like a fun way to have sex.

  2. "Wraeththu" is quite the ridiculous name....

    I had a friend in high school who was obsessed with Storm Constantine. I tried reading a few, but mostly just ended up feeling a little disturbed.

  3. Okay I agree with Alex. This book just doesn't sound like my cup of tea! LOL!
