how to write off a love interest according to arrow
season 1:actually treat love interest as a character of her own right. she even has a love interest that isn't the hero but he will never measure up to the hero.
season 2:show love interest as awful and not worthy of hero's love. you can make her a little sympathetic, but make it clear that the hero is always in the right. start building up another character as love interest to the hero. she is a saint compared to the original love interest.
season 3:make them an inconvenience to the hero. contrast this with the other love interest who is superior in all categories. the narrative makes it clear that they are competitors for hero's love, even if they claim on screen not to be. make sure the love interest starts getting less time even if their storyline involves them going through a key journey.
season 4a:make them realise that other love interest is better than them and have them become cheerleaders for the other woman and the hero's relationship. not only that but make sure they have even less screentime than the previous season. given they no longer have any storylines outside the main couple, with maybe one exception, this is easy. the less they are onscreen, the less likely the audience will question their absence in hero's life despite being a major part in it previously.
season 4b:make sure you show that the discarded love interest still loves the hero, because the hero must never stop being the most desired character. the discarded love interest knows she's not good enough for the hero, and so as the saying goes, she lets the person she loves the most go. this will be seen as the most selfless thing she has ever done. her presence is a burden upon the hero. by leaving/dying she frees him. and only in dying, can she truly be a hero.
aGH I keep missing days. I just keep forgetting to take pictures when I actually sit down to work. Anyway, here’s a picture of a chapter that I didn’t read because I can’t seem to decide on my priorities. It’s just that everything is important and I just want to nap. Haha.
- Went to photograph an event for a film festival. It was very chill and I learnt about surrealism too, even if I can’t quite appreciate it!
- Made myself focus on the train and made it through half another reading for my lit review.
- Finished up an essay that’s due on Monday. I’m so glad that my partner for this assignment is so on point. If it wasn’t for her I think I wouldn’t be half done with it yet.
Now I’ve got send out some photos from various shoots and then get started on a presentation for next week. Also, I need to do my weekly review 😅
