I really want you to read my YA novel when it's done. I mean, first I have to finish writing it, so we'll both probably be old and gray by then, but yes.

So, um, mark a date on your calendar two years in the future, okay?

Anyway, I think the thing I hate most about the stereotype you're describing is not just that it's a stereotype, but that it's fucking boring and uninteresting and I have no desire to read about characters like that. It's such a ... well ... Cassie Claire/Mistful way of looking at the world, all about the Grand Romance and Boy!Angst, and it feels really juvenile to me.

I mean, it's fine to use archetypes, but at least do them with conscious awareness and a bit of intelligence. Like, write that character as a female and see what happens. Don't just grab it because it sounds like your imaginary boyfriend.
