They’d met on UCLA campus. She’s a city girl, evading commitment at all cost and he’s a cowboy, southern charm and all. Instantly taken by each other they begin to loosely see each other and after a whirlpool of events, it becomes much more serious when he asks her to come home to meet his family. Is she ready to take the next step and finally start planting down roots?
The slow burn where they both love each other but think the other person doesn’t feel the same way but literally everyone in the world knows how they feel about each other.
They absolutely loathe each other but everyone around them knows that they actually totally love each other.
Royalty/Commoner ESPECIALLY when the commoner didn’t know they were royalty and feel so betrayed when they find out.
I mean really, any version of the Person A is hiding something about their identity for decentish reasons and Person B eventually finds out and is just so betrayed and Person A has some version of the “I didn’t mean for it to happen, but it did. I fell in love with you.” (Chasing Liberty is my favorite, okay?)
Also the “we’re from different worlds” version, too.
And of course Person A is trying to rescue/find/reunite with they significant other and Person B gets enlisted to help but then totally falls in love but thinks Person A really loves sigo, but when they finally are reunited they realize they really love Person B.
