So I have a problem about this fic I’m planning.
I have a bunch of ideas for separate scenes, but I have no good ideas for a plot. None.
I don’t want the main conflict to be between Kathy and Sasarai. I don’t even know if I’ll write any fights between them. I don’t like thinking about couples fighting, let alone writing it. I know fights are inevitable in a couple, but that doesn’t mean I have to write about it, right? I can make the conflict something else.
So a couple of ideas have been floating around my head. One of them is doing something with the fact that Kathy and Sasarai both have shitty fathers. Kathy’s (Billy) abandoned both her and her mother shortly after she was born, and to make matters worse, she knows now that he’s raising another child—a son—and she wonders what’s wrong with her, that he won’t even acknowledge her. And Sasarai’s father (Hikusaak) favored him and neglected Luc, causing a rift between the brothers that hasn’t completely healed.
The other involves Luc revealing to Sasarai that the two of them are clones, like in the game. In a non-fantasy setting, and in a world where humans are the only creatures as sentient as, well, humans, I think this would be even more disturbing to him than in the game.
But I don’t know, neither of those sound like something I could write too cleverly.
Any suggestions? Everything else I have is just sex. Well, and dating. But mostly sex.
