What Genre?

Question: I have a story idea that incorporates medieval times and modern times with Witches, Kings, Dragons and faery folk working with some goth teens what genre would that fall under?

Answer: Sounds like fantasy to me. Possibly urban fantasy, if it takes place at least partially in a contemporary setting. It's not historical, since dragons and faeries did not exist in history (only the belief in them - unless you're referring to human beings who were simply called faeries). Some people count time travel as a subgenre, but it's still a type of fantasy since time travel doesn't occur in the real world (so far as we know).
