Instead of love at first sight, why not nemesis at first sight?
No, I don’t mean hate at first sight. Nemeses don’t even have to particularly dislike each other, though it’s admittedly customary.
I mean their eyes meet from across the room, and there’s a moment of instant, mutual understanding that they will one day battle to the death on some remote, storm-lashed plain with the very fate of the world hanging on the outcome.
and though the sweet taste of my name has perhaps long faded from mortal tongues, there shall come a glorious day when I shall rise up once more and the power, burning amongst the ichor in my veins, will flood this wretched world—I will have themkneeling
When matching yourself with a nemesis, it’s very important to ensure that one of you is a shouter and one of you is a monologuer. If you’re both monologuers, you’ll never get around to actually battling, while if you’re both shouters, everything goes all Dragon Ball.
