Do you prefer to write fluff or angst?
Why not both? A little angst is what makes the fluff so good! If I absolutely had to pick one, then I’d probably pick fluff because I’m a hopeless romantic and I love the sappy stuff. But would we truly appreciate the sappy stuff if there wasn’t some level of angst to go with it? I don’t think we would. Love gets taken for granted so easily. Knowing it could be taken away from you or having issues come between you as a couple and overcoming it together is what strengthens those bonds. For anyone who doesn’t know, I’m a massive fangirl and I love video games. One of my favorite aspects of Bioware games in particular is how all of their in game romances have a level of angst. Can your relationship recover from you coming back from the dead after two years to work for a terrorist organization? It certainly can, and that angst of being apart and then reconnecting is what makes the reunion so sweet.
