Relationships for writers

I’ve been doing more writing recently (cough fanfiction cough) and noticed the romantic relationships I was writing fell into categories based on their foundation. And because I’m ~that~ type of person I made up little guides for each of these categories. Thought other writers might find it helpful too…

Feel free to add on!

Built on: chemistry

Upside:

Strong start

Pitfall:

Sex is not a replacement for talking

You might hear this couple say:

“It was love at first sight”

Examples:

Ariel and Eric (the little mermaid)

Red and Kitty (that 70s show)

Tony and Maria (west side story)


Built on: Friendship

Upside:

Common interests outlast infatuation

Pitfall:

Differences in life goals or living styles

You might hear this couple say:

“I’m so lucky to be in love with my best friend”

Examples:

Monica and Chandler (F.r.i.e.n.d.s) 

Carl and Ellie (Up)

Aang and Katara (Avatar the last airbender) 


Built on: loyalty

Upside:

face everything as a team

Pitfall:

Is it love or adrenaline

You might hear this couple say:

“I trust them with my life”

Examples:

Han and Leia (star wars)

Katniss and Peeta (the hunger games) 

Mulan and Shang (Mulan)

Its inktober challenge day 6 and today’s challenge is to draw your favourite OTP in a Halloween costume…so I decided to draw Ellie and Carl as Frankenstein and the bride. I decided to draw Ellie and Carl because they’re just so adorable and they remind me so much of my grandparents. I hope you like this one @thatsthat24 😁

I want a love like:

Ross and Rachel

Kim and Ron

Lizzie and Gordo

Fred and Wilma

Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask

Ellie and Carl

Zoey and Chase

The Doctor and Rose

Amy and Rory

I want the love that goes through thousand years and never gives up, the love that comes from a great friendship, the love that can go through the hard times and still bounce back because of our love, the love that can stay strong thousand of miles apart, the love that can take being universes apart and still be in love, that can take death and still love each other. I CRAVE that love.
