Today’s prompt is to talk about a scene that you’ve already written that creates a lot of drama. Just a small taste, which I kind of like, but I’m going to twist this. As I twist all things if you stay here long enough or if you’ve been here for a while. It’s just what I do. I’m a twisty person. Not twisty dark because this is not Grey’s Anatomy, but bit twisty. So I’m going to talk about an upcoming scene that I’ve got some written out in my outline / road map. It’s also one of my favorite scenes because it’s just filled with crunchy family drama too.
So what happens is that Marian allows herself to be captured, letting them think they have Robin, and when the hood is pulled up she’s all like “hello brother dear” in Robin’s voice. Which just freaks everybody out and they’re like “demon!” and she’s like “…fuck you, illusion magic”. Not in so many words, but you get the idea. There’s a bunch of lead up to this point, like Marian embracing that her true kick ass self is better than using the illusion of a guy, But it is one of my favorite scenes and one of the more juicy drama scenes. Especially because Daniel’s like “is there nobody in this family that is normal?!” and she’s like “nope, not even you” and the little family tidbits. Also, she’s got a specific reason for being captured, as this is between the midpoint and the secondary twist, but that’s just going to have to wait for the entire novel to be written.
There are other juicy drama bits in the novel, including Johanna (Little John) calling Marian out on thinking she has to be a guy for people to listen to her. And there’s the entire possible romance between the Demon King and Marian with all of that inside. I’m just having a lot of fun with writing this novel, even if it’s taking me forever to sit down and write. There’s just been a lot of real life drama and wanting to lost myself in books, but the remainder of the month is for me kicking ass.
So now I turn the question over to you about your favorite drama filled scenes of your work. Leave a comment down below and, until next time, take care.
