BLOG TAG: Romance In My WIP!

Tuesday, February 15, 2022

 I was tagged by H.S. Kylian to do this sweet blog tag -- perfect timing, too, with Valentine's Day! I'm a few days late to the party, but I had to take some time to think about my WIP, codename BTM. It will have a sequel (it'll be a duology) which I already have bits and pieces of written, so BTM itself won't have too much romance in it, but the sequel (coming 2023, God willing) will definitely be romance-centered. So without further ado, you get to meet my next set of characters, Bridget and Nick. 

BUT FIRST -- again, thank you so much for tagging me, H.S.!! You can check out the original blog tag post and rules HERE (and make sure to give her a follow too, because her OTPs are to die for). To participate in the blog tag, you need to...
1. Thank the person who tagged you
2. Link back to the original post (again, HERE
3. Answer the questions
4. Tag as many people as you want!
I'm tagging Angela, Camille, and Sarah (on YouTube!) to chat about the romance in their WIPs -- and YOU!

QUESTION 1: FAVORITE OTP

Bridget and Nick, hands down. They're the bomb.

QUESTION 2: SECOND FAVORITE OTP
Olivia and her guy. I say "her guy" because I haven't decided on a name for him yet. I have a face and personality, just not a name yet. Go figure. 

QUESTION 3: HOW THEY MET
First OTP: Originally met in school as kids, but re-met through a very nosy matchmaking sister.
Second OTP: She's a realtor and showed him around a few houses for his bachelor pad, and ended up going out on a date a few weeks later. 

QUESTION 4: WHO SAID 'I LOVE YOU' FIRST?
First OTP: Nick! Bridget takes awhile to warm up to the idea.
Second OTP: Olivia for sure, but her guy's pretty quick to return it.

QUESTION 5: FAVORITE DATE SPOT
Bridget and Nick have a bridge near both their places of work which they like to frequent. There's a nice little tree and bench by the mouth of the bridge that suits quite nicely for picnics and big discussions. 
Olivia and her guy enjoy restaurant-hopping -- they don't have a favorite spot, but rather an activity, I guess. Whether it's a food truck or a fancy restaurant, they're up to the challenge of trying new foods (and some old favorites).

QUESTION 6: THE BLANKET HOGGER
OTP 1: Bridget. It makes her feel safe, so Nick just ends up getting another blanket. 
OTP 2: Olivia's guy, who bundles up just because. Possibly to annoy Olivia. 

QUESTION 7: THE BOOKWORM
I don't think Olivia or her guy are very much into books. *side-eyes them* BUT Bridget and Nick both are bookworms, so maybe that makes up for the other OTP not being into them haha. That's another thing their date spot is good for: talking about their current reads. 

QUESTION 8: POLAR OPPOSITE OPINION ON...(TOPIC OF YOUR CHOICE)
Opinion: Star Wars. Yep, the whole fandom. (If you're not in the fandom, you'll know that the fandom is very...um, passionate...about pretty much everything xD) And if you ARE part of the fandom, you'll realize that these opinions actually shed a lot of light on their personalities and interests. It's probably not a topic that will come up in the books (at least not by name, copyright and all, I don't need the Mouse on my case) but it's super revealing and after thinking about it, I think I know a lot more about these characters now.  
Nick would willingly consume any and every movie made for Star Wars, but Bridget tends to reject anything that isn't the original trilogy, and would rather read the novel canon (and is still salty that Disney decided to reject novel canon.) 
Olivia is bored to the depths of her soul by Star Wars, and her guy only watched the sequel trilogy. 

QUESTION 9: MOST LIKELY TO BE ORGANIZED
Definitely Bridget and that's about it. Nick is to a certain extent, but he's not too worried about making sure things are spic and span, or whether or not he can find those Super Important Documents he swore he printed off, not until he absolutely needs them. And Olivia and her guy are both pretty free-spirited, in that...well, Super Important Documents rarely get opened to begin with, and they have to dig through their haphazard mail pile to find them. 

QUESTION 10: MOST LIKELY TO BURST INTO SONG
Definitely Nick and Olivia. Bridget and Olivia's guy would just sit there and hide their faces (while laughing because honestly, you can't give Nick and Olivia the victory of seeing you laugh. It just encourages them.) 


SO -- which OTP do you think is your favorite? And does anyone have any name suggestions for Olivia's guy? xD
