Let's say you have a book series (we'll call it Black Butler) that is about demons & grim reapers interacting with humans in 1980s England, & you're perfectly willing to accept that, but your suspension of disbelief is put on hold when clothing considered risque by 21st century standards, & technology that shouldn't exist for another 30-78 years start popping up in the manga. Is there an appropriate category for this that accepts examples?
Artistic License – History for the latter, maybe.
I don't think this page should have examples, so I'm moving this one here.
I think that there should be some reference to Tolkien's "On Fairy-stories" in this page. A good part of the essay deals with "Suspention of Disbelief", and provides a unique -and extremely educated- point of view on the subject.
In fact, Tolkien went so far to say that if disbelief must be suspended, then the author has already failed to captivate his audiance. (paragraph 50)
