My Favorite Story Tropes
A running list
- •HATE 2 LOVEI 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?!
- •MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCETurns 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?🚨
- •FAKE RELATIONSHIPLess 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).
- •PUBLIC DUMMY PRIVATE SMARTIEMy public persona cares about shoes, cravats and horses BUT MY PRIVATE PERSONA IS ABOLISHING THE GOVERNMENT (psssst The Scarlet Pimpernel).
- •EPISTOLARY/SCRAPBOOK FICTIONLet's tell the story through letters or documents or emails or text threads or ephemera- I love it all.
