Yo! I'm starting a new urban fantasy story about a girl who is constantly overshadowed by her sister. The MC is Envy, in her early twenties, and her sister is Tess, about two or three years older than Envy. Their parents (and some of Envy's friends) continuously choose Tess over Envy, causing her to resent Tess for being the center-of-attention all of the time. The book focuses heavily on their relationship and the conflict between them (but Tess doesn't realize until halfway through the book that Envy hates her so much). So I was wondering if any of you have had situations like this in your life that I could use for my MC's backstory. A few situations I have include: -- Envy's high school teachers refer to her as "Tess's little sister" -- Tess was allowed to go on spring break vacations but Envy wasn't -- Envy couldn't go on fun school trip because parents wanted to buy Tess car and couldn't afford both -- Parents bought Tess a car but made Envy buy her own -- Once Envy graduated high school, parents made her pay rent to live with them but allowed Tess to live free-of-charge for a year or two -- Tess gets to go to college of choosing but Envy has to go to a local community college instead of her dream University because the parents are "broke" -- Envy's friends often come over specifically because they want to see Tess -- Envy's boyfriends often flirt with Tess Just a note: My MC is not a better or worse child than her sister. She's never really acted out or gotten into any serious trouble (maybe a few fights or detention in school). And Tess has never really done anything worth noting. She's basically just a typical girl that the parents favor for some reason. So! Does anyone else have any awful stories of favoritism that you wouldn't mind me using in my book?
