My Favorite Story Tropes

A running list
  1. HATE 2 LOVE
    I hate you so much and wish you would eject yourself into space but also I fixate on your every move and have instagram notifications on for you so I can make fun of your snobbishness and wtf when did I fall in love with you?!
  2. MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE
    Turns out I can't inherit my great uncle's medieval Scottish mansion unless I'm a married man 🚨IS THERE A SPINSTER GOVERNESS WITHIN A 25 MILE RADIUS?🚨
  3. FAKE RELATIONSHIP
    Less insane sister trope to the MOC. I don't have a date to my sister's wedding and my mom's being a real nightmare about it will you pretend to be my long term boyfriend? We will have to have a backstory and hold hands and yup, we gotta practice PDA so it seems authentic enough but I promise, no feelings here. (There are always feelings).
  4. PUBLIC DUMMY PRIVATE SMARTIE
    My public persona cares about shoes, cravats and horses BUT MY PRIVATE PERSONA IS ABOLISHING THE GOVERNMENT (psssst The Scarlet Pimpernel).
  5. EPISTOLARY/SCRAPBOOK FICTION
    Let's tell the story through letters or documents or emails or text threads or ephemera- I love it all.
