In our hearts, our character couples are always perfect for each other, but then there are those couples who, despite the given of a Happily Ever After (it is a Romance, after all) seem so impossibly mismatched , the determined attraction they have for one another is a surprise. This is wonderful grist for drama, suspense and most certainly comedy.
Writing Prompt: Write a 250+ word scene from any character’s viewpoint giving insight into the hero’s and heroine’s apparent mismatch. This could be a negative opinion, or a epiphany of the connection between them. This could add a light moment to a dark story, or further jeopardize their success.
Who are your favorite romantic mismatches?
