Fucking Vampire Fiction

About halfway through writing my newest book I made a sudden realization about urban fantasy and paranormal tropes. Depending on how intrinsic they are to the book, they can quite easily be replaced with others, whether they exist already or are simply made up. In summary my newest book is about a magus hunter who is hunting the one that cursed her to remain the same age forever. However, after seeing that a few certain literary agents wanted vampire fiction, I tried using the copy and replace word function to change every ‘magus’ or ‘mage’ for ‘vampire’, and replaced every ‘magic’ for ‘blood magic’, and what do you know, it worked flawlessly. Who knew that with a few quick changes to a story you could change an urban fantasy into a paranormal book? I wonder what other things this would work for. I imagine a lot of fantasy tropes are easily interchangeable.
