I was recently introduced to a term that I’ve fallen in love with: “Flying Snowman”
It refers to something in fiction that causes your suspension of disbelief to break down despite having been able to accept everything before that. The term comes from someone’s reaction the the children’s book “The Snowman” when a walking, talking, sentient snowman takes flight. The reader could accept the magic of the fictional world that allowed the sentient snowman, but the flying crossed the line for them and snapped their engagement with the story.
Do you have any flying snowman moments to share?
