A to Z Challenge: Only You Can Repopulate My Race

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 Only You Can Repopulate My Race (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:

"Parodied in Terry Pratchett's Eric, where Eric has typical adolescent male fantasies of all-female kingdoms in the jungle who regularly kidnap men and make them live with them for certain services only men can provide until they die of exhaustion. However, these "certain services" are more along the lines of mowing lawns, changing lightbulbs, killing spiders and sorting out strange noises in the attic."

  1. That would royally suck.
    Then again, while it's every man's fantasy, it really wouldn't be as great as it sounds. I do good to please one woman - hundreds? Not a chance.
