Meet Main Character: she’s strong, independent, witty but also capable of vulnerability and mistakes. She’s about the save her kingdom/ home/ friends, but, wait, what’s that on the horizon? An army? A villain? A inquiring metaphor for fear? No! It’s-it’s-it’s two guys!
Love triangles have been a part of literature since the the beginning. Shakespeare, ancient myth, you name it and there’s two people vying for the affections of the same person. Most major writers have dabbled in the literary troupe. At times readers are shown the view of the suitors as they battle for love a fickle person. Other times, and in most modern novels, we see the emotional turmoil of liking to two people at once. Recently, however, love triangles have become STDs of the young adult section of bookstores: everyone has seems to have one and some are a lot prouder about it than they should be.
