The original story didn't deal with this topic at all.  I think when I wrote it I suspected that people simply fell out of their cars or some such.  But there were a lot of stories that followed up that went in both directions.  It seemed to me that the general concesus was that anyone inside a vehicle at the time ended up getting reborn as a child of that animal.  IIRC, someone wrote that buses turned into draft horses that started dropping foals after normal gestation times, even if they'd never been near a male horse.  They stopped when they reached the right number of occupants, and the new horses had some ability to remember being human.  But there was some ambiguity there and some people ended up outside the animals.  So... it's fine anyway you want it. :-)  --[[User:Eirik|Eirik]] 04:27, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

I have a story idea for this setting. Basically the entire premise is that a 747 turns into a dragon when the change hits. I'm curious what YOU think would happen to the minds of the pilots and the passengers IF that happened. --Alex Warlorn 19:02, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Not much actually would happen. The basic premise for Passing Fad is that every vehicle spontaneously turns into a horse. Anyone who happens to be inside a vehicle is riding along in their car/motorcycle/etc. one second and sitting on top of a horse the next. I'm pretty sure there's a story where this comes up somewhere. Dragons don't come into the setting either. It's always horses, as far as I know. Jonas


Winged humans, centaurs, and cow-tuars, have already been introduced. --Alex Warlorn 23:29, 25 June 2011 (UTC)
