Vegetables as Characters

Face Off TreeOK, so we’re watching a recent episode of the awesome show Face Off, where make-up artists compete against one another.

This one’s called Twisted Trees, and it’s about creating a character that’s based on a certain type of tree.

A few writers have written vegetarian characters in Fantasy – the Ents of the Lord of the Rings spring quickly to mind.

Or how about the Ellcrys in Terry Brooks’ Shannara series, that springs from a living being?

So today I’m wondering about writing vegetation – trees, bushes, heck, even fungus – as fully realized characters. Have you done it? Have you read it? And can a tree be gay?
