A Genre Term

On rec.arts.sf.written, they were trying to come up with a good term for “modern horror/fantasy, female protagonist with some sort of unusual power(s), likely with a complex personal life and a willingness to Break the Rules”.  Exemplars are Buffy, Anita Blake, Dead Witch Walking et sequelae, the vampire books with Sooky Stackhouse, Robin McKinley’s recent Sunshine.

The best candidate so far?  “Witchfulfillment”.

I love smart people.
