In my urban fantasy WIP, my MC is a mortal girl named Nina (for now). She, her sister Tess, and eight other girls are kidnapped and held prisoner in a demon's mansion. Tentatively, the motive for this is that the demon, Dimitri, is heir to the "throne" of the demon world. But before he can take his place, he must marry. I haven't decided why he's choosing humans yet, but that's what he does. He puts these women through a series of tests, eliminating (though I'm not sure if that means killing or releasing with no memories) the worst performing woman after each trial. In the end, it is Tess, Nina, and a third prisoner. They manage to escape and the third is killed. Dimitri corners the sisters and Nina, corrupted by the idea of power, kills her own sister. This act (mixed with blood magic) turns her into a demon herself, and she marries Dimitri and rules the demon world with him. The plan was just that -- Nina becomes corrupted by the idea of power. She'd been so overshadowed by her sister that she wanted something to call her own. Something to make her stand out and important. However, on further review, I kind of like the idea that she falls in love with Dimitri, in the same way that Phoebe falls in love with Cole on Charmed. However! It's been pointed out on a couple occasions that having Nina fall in love with Dimitri could be viewed as very destructive, almost enabling and encouraging abusive relationships. And that's definitely not something I want to do. Is there any possible way I could make them fall in love without condoning such things? Or am I just going to have to scrap the idea of love all together? Thanks!
