This has always been something that bugged me about action/disaster movies and books, the MC and someone else always ends up falling in love, or having sex with someone during a, or because of a tense situation. Sometimes you know the people having sex during the zombie plagues are probably going to be the next to die...other times, the MC falls in love with someone and they are so passionate about each other that that must have each other, that release to all the tension. The movie Speed is a good example. They know nothing about each other, but are making out on the runway after escaping the flaming bus. Most zombie movies have some sort of sex in them at some point. Disaster plots often have someone doing it too, just before disaster strikes, or after it has struck and are struggling to survive. Do you think this is necessary in a plot line of survival? OR is it just the sensationalistic way of our culture? Or is it a natural human response to catastrophic events, our whole preserve the species instincts, coming out and since we are surviving together, the closest person to us gets our lovin'? I'm torn as to if I should keep my MC and the man she has picked up during a zombie scenario in just a platonic relationship, or if I should have some flirting start here at some point. Both of their spouses are dead, they are dealing with trying to survive and their grief...I'm just torn.
