This came about while I was asking a question on yahoo answers (a bad idea, don't recommend it, too many trolls) and came across a lot of replies that I found disheartening. You see, I've been set on writing a werewolf story for some time. And while I see characters in mind, I struggle with plot and setting. So I was asking about a good setting for werewolves and a user basically jumped the gun, said my story was cliche, and that I was writing yet another UF story (even though I did not mention anything other than that the protag was a werewolf but oh well). But this brought up something interesting. A lot of people roll their eyes when they hear vampire, witch, werewolf, fae, or zombie. I was wondering why that is and what could be done with the setting/plot/characters that would make an interesting paradox to these otherwise overused supernatural creatures. So what do you guys think? What do you think would be a great element (plot,setting, or character wise) that would make a vampire, werewolf, witch, faerie, zombie, etc. interesting? (Specifically werewolves since that's what I'm writing). I mean, how do you take something that has been done and done before and make it more interesting?
