Below I pit two fiction tropes against each other and pick the one I prefer.
Overly protective brother overly protective father?
Brother. I love this trope so much.
Haters to lovers or lovers to haters?
Even though I’m not the biggest romance reader, I enjoy a good haters to lovers storyline. Certainly more than love at first sight, gets married next month.
Haters to lovers or enemies to friends?
Enemies to friends. I’m here for platonic relationships.
Love triangle or love square?
I don’t love either, but I’ll go with a square. The more the merrier, I guess.
Rags to riches or riches to rags?
The former. I want characters to succeed.
A hero or an anti-hero?
Anti-hero. Not everyone can be brave and courageous or save the world, am I right?
Vampires or werewolves?
Thanks to Christopher Pike, vampire books gave me life as a teenager.
Funny friend or smart sidekick?
Give me both any day, but I often relate to a smart sidekick more. I’m just not funny.
Real dating or fake dating?
The latter all the way. It’s fun reading about people who have to pretend they’re in love.
I’d love to know which fiction tropes you would pick.
