did any of my stories turn into an unexpected genre?

Yep. When I started writing Nephilim quest, the original thought was to write a time-traveller story. I also had another plot planned - how two teenage friends stayed in contact after the other one died. Two separate ideas.
Somehow these two intertwined when I started to write. And then the winged Nephilim appeared. At first in the dream where Kitty dies and Dana sees a dream where a blue-winged angel leads Kitty away. That was to be an "ordinary" angel. And then, suddenly, Daniel appeared. And then the human myths I had studied and heard of took over.
And so, I found myself writing a story that combined historical fiction, time travel, human mythology, Nephilim, vampires and afterlife. Oh, and let's not forget romance. Don't really know what I should call the genre. When I had to choose the main genre, I decided Young Adult, based on Dana's age. Only it appears some of my young adult readers are in their seventies.
So, to be honest, the series could be any of the above mentioned genres.
