Yep. :) I try to subvert archetypes in whatever story I write; for instance, in my current WIP, I have monsters that won't fight, undead that won't rip the protagonist apart, and a Conan-the-Barbarian type who's interested in other things than stealing, drinking, and wenching. :P

Stereotypes are fun. Coming up with ways to subvert them is even more fun! :D
