I've planned out a story where these two characters (let's call them X and Y) are such close friends and go on all these adventures together, but I don't know how they met in the first place. I want that to be the focus of the first chapter. X is a simple, clumsy, lazy, uncaring kind of character and Y is a serious, loyal, dutiful, military-type character. Y doesn't have a place to stay and something needs to happen that makes Y end up living with X. Maybe X unintentionally saves Y from something. I don't know. I can't think of anything that works well. This is the only part I've had trouble with! Any suggestions would be much appreciated. It doesn't matter how silly or unrealistic they are, as it's kind of a comedy. I just need some inspiration.
