I know we all love friends to lovers and enemies to lovers because they’re awesome. But you know what’s an underrated trope?
Friends to enemies.
Give me two people who grew up together. Who know each other’s secrets. Who’ve held each other while they cried, laughed together, seen each other through all the milestones. Give me two people who are so close they can’t imagine being anything else… then rip them apart.
Show me how they drift away from each other because of duty, or obligation or difference of opinion. Show me them using all their knowledge and memories to hurt, fight and betray one another to the point where it’s not possible for them to find their way back to each other. And show me that through all of it… there’s a part of both of them that still cares for the other.
