I enjoy toying with established rules. Whenever I see certain archetypes and tropes repeated in genres, I like to see how far I can bend those ideas without breaking them. This thought process continues in my kitchen work, to understand the taste of an ingredient and how they interact with others. Just the same with writing or cooking, sometimes it's garbage and sometimes it works. The only way to know is to try. The proof of the pasta is in the tasting.
