** This one raises FridgeLogic issues, as Gaea supposedly designed the Titanides' human-like and horse-like features based on the content of TV transmissions she'd picked up from Earth, starting in the 1930s. But nobody in the 1930s was broadcasting ''porno'' into space, so how could she know what human or horse genitalia look like?
*** It was however quite clear that Gaea wasn't above modifying her creations after the event of creation, remember she completely changed their sexual reproduction between the first and 2nd books to cut down on overpopulation[[note]]and morally enslave Cirocco[[/note]] after the war was stopped.

A Science Fiction Trilogy by Creator/JohnVarley describing humanity's encounter with a moon sized alien, and the indigenous aliens that live upon it.

In the first book, titled ''Titan'', a space expedition to Saturn GoneHorriblyWrong when the ship gets swallowed by one of the satellites and find themselves inside a living planet with a god complex. The crew all get separated at first, and [[EveryoneMeetsEveryone start looking for each other]]. They find useful aliens in the form of Smilers, a six legged kangaroo you can eat without killing, Titanides, musical oriented friendly centaurs, and Blimps, [[CoolAirship living dirigibles]] that willingly serve as transports.

Added DiffLines:

* FantasyContraception: In ''Wizard'', Gaea tries to exert her control over Cirocco by making her saliva the only substance able to take Titanide eggs to the next level of conception. This leads to her image involving all sorts of [[DysfunctionJunction drunken dysfunction.]]

* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Nothing supernatural about them; "angel" is simply the term applied to several different species of WingedHumanoid.

** That said, Gaea's original inspiration was the "traditional" depiction of angels, modified by the limits and demands of real physics and biology.

Added DiffLines:

* SanitySlippage: Gaea suffered this long ago but it becomes more and more obvious through the trilogy. By ''Demon'' she's not even hiding it anymore.

* GeniusLoci: Gaea[[spoiler:, and she's neither a nice nor a sane one]]. The twelve "ring minds" at the bottom ends of Gaea's spokes could also qualify.

* TheSymbiote: The Blimps rely on small, ape-like creatures living in their stomachs to "preprocess" the leaves and branches the Blimps eat. The Blimps actually digest the droppings from the ape creatures after the apes eat the foliage.
