Hi everyone. It's been a long time since I posted, but I am making really good headway in my book, and have but a single problem to figure out. Was wondering if you guys had some ideas My story is a portal fantasy about a kid who cannot stand conflict and tries to escape the conflicts between his parents. He is in the middle of those, and feels like it's his fault, because they keep bringing him into it. So he runs away, and is thrust into a conflict in another world. The combatants are two gods who are basically parents of the people of this world. So, the problem I'm having is trying to figure out an exciting climax involving conflict resolution, so the main character can learn how to cope with conflict, and maybe help his parents resolve theirs. Right now it amounts to trapping the two gods so they have to listen to him, and using common sense to get them to see the errors of their ways, but somehow, a kid talking to two gods stuck in traps and forced to look at each other doesn't seem exciting enough, even if it's in the middle of a battle. Any thoughts on how I might be able to make this scene not just about talking it out and playing nice? Any details I can help with? Thanks for any help!
