A to Z Challenge: Lady Land

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 Lady Land (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:

"Spoofed in Terry Pratchett's Interesting Times. Rincewind is stuck on an island and is found by a tribe of lovely Amazons who have lost all their men to a highly specific plague and require him to repopulate their tribe. Sadly, Rincewind is magically "rescued" before he can obtain his greatest fantasy (potatoes)."

  1. It's every man's fantasy, but in reality, we wouldn't know what to do with that many women. One is enough for me, thanks.

  2. TV Tropes is awesome. Not sure I would survive long where Wonder Woman is from. :)

  3. Fascinating idea, sure sounds like an epic adventure for one guy. Makes you wonder though, what kind of plague killed the men, perhaps mother-nature was evening things out...
