''Imagine Someday'' is an urban fantasy novel and the debut of author Karen Lofgren.

It tells the story of Diego Avery, a lonely young man who discovers a griffin in his forested backyard. Said griffin, named Aglaciel, [[IdentityAmnesia can't remember anything about what happened to him]]. A QuestForIdentity begins when Diego's girlfriend, Miho, finds a {{unicorn}} in a nearby public park, and a lot more questions than answers are brought to the surface.

However, Diego has a lot of baggage himself, and sooner or later that's going to come to the forefront...

Starts off as a pretty typical ABoyAndHisX story, but quickly gets darker.

[[index]]

* AbusiveParents: [[spoiler:Christian Avery sexually abused Diego.]]
* [[spoiler: ArchnemesisDad]]: [[spoiler:Christian Avery is this to Diego.]]
* {{Badass}}: Where to start! Nearly every character in some way or another, but Jane stands out in particular.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: [[spoiler:Rahim]]
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Christian Avery and Guilheh.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:Rahim bursting in to save Diego near the end.]]

* BookEnds: [[spoiler:Diego lying on the couch with a book while talking to Colin.]]
* BrokenBird: Jillian is a darker version of this trope.
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: Diego and Miho. [[spoiler:It doesn't work out.]]
* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:Damn near everyone. Diego was sexually abused by his father. Rahim was abandoned and essentially taken in by Christian Avery as slave labor. Jillian was almost mauled to death by griffins while terrified and alone in the mountains. Dawn watched Argent slaughter her family. Ditto for Aglaciel.]]
* DashingHispanic: Diego has some shades of this.
* DealWithTheDevil: [[spoiler:Avery did this with Guilheh. Somewhat subverted in that Avery's the one in control.]]
* DeclarationOfProtection: Goes unsaid for most of the story, but Rahim is definitely going to protect Diego, no matter what gets in his way.
* EvilIsNotAToy: Subverted. [[spoiler:Christian Avery, a human, is the one in control of Guilheh, a Fantastical Creature. This remains so throughout the story.]]
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Diego and Rahim.
* IdentityAmnesia: Aglaciel has this for a decent amount of the story.
* LonelyRichKid: While not a minor anymore, Diego fits this trope.
* ManOfWealthAndTaste: Jillian describes [[spoiler:Avery]] as this.
* MightyWhiteyAndMellowYellow: Completely averted. Diego (who is half-Hispanic but half-Caucasian) is dating Japanese-American Miho Akare, but their relationship is portrayed as any other.
* MrExposition: Anu, more or less.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: True dragons haven't been around for a while, but wyverns appear.
* OurGryphonsAreDifferent: Aglaciel is a Classic.
* PrettyBoy: Diego is even called this at one point.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Aglaciel, as griffins are rather warlike. [[spoiler:This is not necessarily a good thing.]]
* QuestForIdentity: The initial driving question.
* RapeAsBackstory: [[spoiler:Diego was raped as a child. It's more or less portrayed realistically.]]
* TheMeanBrit: Again, completely averted. Colin is probably the nicest and most well-adjusted character in the story.
* TheOtherRainforest: The prime setting is a fictional city in Oregon that's somewhat like Portland. The characters also visit the Cascades at one point.
* ThePhoenix: Lineh
* {{Unicorn}}
* UrbanFantasy
