The entire basis of my story deals with a massive illogical fusion of worlds, and I've struggled for years with this idea. I have decided how I want to explain it, but basically every character, nearly every location, and even everyday things are fused between two different planets.
I used to hate how in modern fantasy stories the magic world of the world would be hidden away. It always seemed an extremely lazy approach. Through that I thought up the basis of my story, a magical event so cataclysmic that everyone in the world had to deal with all their normal problems with magic in the mix all of a sudden.
But the biggest problem I have when writing this is the characters, everyone in my setting is a humanoid who was fused with another humanoid (There are various exceptions to this.) So I find it hard to explain it all, especially the characters navigating their own minds, and bodies which now contain the entire memories of another.
I'm just looking for any suggestions, or advice. I know it is very specific cause not everyone's or anyone's story deal with this concept. But I was hoping a bunch of geeks could refresh my ideas with new points of view.
Any input will be appreciated, thanks.
