Yeay!! Someone in fandom whose future novel I actually want to read instead of feeling guilty for not wanting to ;) ;) <3333 HEEE. Yay. *pumps fist* I want you to read mine too, once I start it :D :D :D Two years is already more than I'm about to promise, so I think that's inspiring :D
I really love Grand Romance and boy!angst (*SOB* I CAN'T HELP IT), but I'm tired of the same old -treatment- of the tropes/ideas behind it. You're right that it's juvenile and simplistic, though, and in the end unsatisfying. Well, sort of like trying to subsist on candy. Eventually your teeth rot and you're still hungry ^^;
It's TOTALLY like it's their Imaginary Boyfriend, omg, I should know, hahahahah. I feel like reading that stuff ropes me into idealizing even his faults, just because of it being written so... breathlessly and over-the-top that it's like... no matter how ridiculous and immature the guy's acting, it's inherently supposed to be okay because isn't he HOT. Which is just Not On. At least I want the guy to have consequences for his actions where not All Is Forgiven, even if really that would depress me 'cause I can't handle too much angst hahaha. It's totally a male Mary Sue. *nodnodnod* That's really what it is :>
