The story I'm writing is far too complex to put in a single post, so bear with me here, please. But to be extremely short, I have two questions: 1. If Batman and Robin where the same age and gay, would you still like them? and what if they were female? 2. How far would you go to feel loved? To elaborate as best I can, I have one character (Cara) who has been trained since birth to become a Batman-style superhero. She doesn't have superhuman powers, but she obviously very strong, agile, has quick reflexes and all that. The drawback is she isn't entirely human (yellow eyes, sharp teeth, small horns etc), so she has to live in secret. In other words, she has literally been all alone the last 20 years. Then there's Sharon. She was a cop with several friends, a loving (male) fiancé, even a brother, two sisters, a few nieces and the occasional nephew. And caring parents, of course. The whole thing. But for reason I won't explain too much here, she has ended up in Cara's headquarter and was faced with two choices: Either become Cara's sidekick (her Robin, if you will) or die. And to make a long story short, she accepted the job. Now here's the thing: Cara has been alone for 20 years, and she doesn't know how to be around people. But now that Sharon is around, Cara is painfully reminded what it feels like to have a friend. As for Sharon, she has lost everything and can never tell her own family that she is still alive. She is painfully aware that she has literally lost everything. Cara and Sharon both know they are all alone in the world, and they desperately need company. Cara has never been sexually active, and Sharon had a male fiance. But even so, do you think it's logical that they end up together? And would that be ok? Keep in mind I don't think of them as lesbians. Not that I'm against it, but the story isn't about that. What I'm wondering about is if I should let them go all the way (without going into detail in the story, of course), or should they remain friends only?
