One of the things I like doing on this site is posting these kinds of probing posts and hoping people respond with gusto. I like reading other people's stuff, and I haven't done one in a while, so here I go. A lot of stories have Romance Arcs. Sometimes, it happens naturally within the story. Sometimes, it's because your book is a romance novel. Sometimes, you just really like these two characters and not-so-subtly gave them personality traits that make them great romantic partners... Not that I would know anything about that. So, does your story have a Romance Arc? Who's it between? How does it unfold? I usually get the ball rolling by sharing my own example of this, so here it is. I've got these two characters, Gabe and Martha, and they start off on pretty good terms. They relate to each other by the virtue of them both recently losing someone close to them. However, in the exact same scene, Martha tells Gabe, and everyone else, that she would kill all of them before allowing them to hurt one of the antagonists, who is her adoptive brother. This doesn't kill their chemistry, however, but a future event does. To make a long story short, Martha kills someone close to Gabe; it's not her fault, but Gabe blames her for a while. They eventually reconcile and continue with the story. They gradually get closer as they go on more adventures together, until it comes to a head right before the end. Well, almost. The thing is, Martha has no idea how to put her feelings into words, so the closest she can get is to ask Gabe if she can stay with him forever. Gabe picks up on what she means, and agrees, as he feels the same. So, yeah, there's that. How about all of yours? Do you have one? How does it unfold? If you don't have one, is there a reason, or did you just think about it?
