I have figured out how the fantasy genre came to be. It’s small kids’ play. Klara can go on for hours, improvising away.
“Look! Those are the secret wasps of Aragorn! They are the ones who attacked the kingdom of the blue merpeople who knew the magic of rainbow snowstorms. We need to rescue the witch of the Clearborn forest because she’s the only one who knows how to defend us from the attack of the wasps. Remember that only the forgotten spell of Aragorn can bring back the lost magic of the King of the Western Sea!”
And on and on it goes. There’s an internal logic to it and even a plot.
