Playing against type

Take your favorite characters (2 or 3 should do it, your own or someone else's) and cast them in a scene from a very atmospheric genre. Then pick another. Do 3 all together.

Do the characters adapt themselves well or do they feel awkward?

Some ideas for genres:

noir detective
British period piece
alien invasion
monster in the house
buddy cops
zombie apocalypse
high school drama
space explorers
bodice buster
superhero or superhero team
Disney fairy tale
Christmas story

Be as florid as you wish :-)
