Like for example with a fantasy story, cool characters with big swords shooting fireballs and wielding the elements trying to kill an unimaginably powerful dark warrior while at the same time falling in love with each other. Can it be done and done right? I've posted a story that's basically like this, and I wrote it when I was around twelve and I'm wondering if you guys think someone really can make this work. Check out the Pearl and the Onyx. Any suggestions to reduce or increase cornyness or the amount of deplorable cliche-ness? of the story are welcome.
