    The story would most likely be based on a relationship of two people from different sub cultures, politically, ethnically, culturally and religiously considered wrong.

    But through an adventure of hardship and fate the two lovers manage to bridge the differences for the people, but not without the neccesary bloodshed. The book would end with either one dying from unnatural causes, leaving the remaining person severely hurt and detached while the rest of the world openly celebrates a new future.



    ...Something like that.
    Impossible love for sure. Maybe along the lines of me trying to create a new medicine or functionality that would further the human race. After years of research with no practical implementation, I am led to a man who lives in isolation who has achieved further success than I have. He is much older and is unable to complete his research, so he willingly donates his body to me so I can combine our efforts on a living prototype. As each day passes and his health deteriorates, more progress is made. I finally achieve a breakthrough at the expense of his life. As he lies there dying, we hold hands and stare into each others eyes, knowing that we are in love and that we've achieved success. An extremely cathartic moment.

    That was great, Jenocyde! I laughed till I hurt. That's what I was imagining coming from you people. Flesh it out with very succinct NT dialogue and you'll have a bestseller!

    Knowing that she had always dreamed, since a young girl, of overlooking Lake Templeton at sunset, he woke her up a little earlier than normal this Saturday morning. Hot coffee in hand, just the way she liked it, he said, "I wanna take you to Templeton today. I want you to see that sunset you've always wanted to see." She hopped up. "Really? Today?"

    "Indeed! Take an hour to get what you need for the day and let's make it happen."

    Like a little girl all over again, she got in the shower and got ready with a smile from ear to ear. She thought about what she would take, careful to remember everything that would make the experience the best it could be.

    As they made the six hour journey up the windy coastline, they just talked and played some road games. He let her be quiet and it didn't feel awkward at all. She enjoyed that. And so did he. They could talk when they wanted - no pressure to keep a conversation going. They each felt at home in their own skin, enjoying the coast, and drifting off into their own thoughts and their own worlds, all the while sitting right next to each other. It was sort of like that storybook romance that we all hear about, but it was also different. It was just comfortable. It was peaceful. It was nice.

    They finally arrived just in time to see the sun begin to fade over the lake. They got out of the car and she ran toward a spot she had seen from the road - a spot that would give her the very best view of the sun calling it a day. He followed behind, finding it hard to not feel some of her enthusiasm. He was enjoying himself, but he had never seen someone so excited to see a sunset. It made him happy that he had made the decision to bring her here. Her happiness, her innocent joy was rubbing off on him and they were both happy. Together. Together and happy. As the sky grew darker with each second and the sun slowly inched out of sight, there they were - HAPPY. She took a deep breath as if she wanted to inhale the moment and always have it with her. "This is amazing," she said. "This...right here...is what life is all about! Moments like this." He nodded in agreement and what happened next is perhaps better left for a more mature audience......

    LOL..........
    Simple. The story is in the happening, not the great dramatic plot or setting, but in the minute detail that gets explored for its subtle richness.
    And...biased because this happened with the bf (well, mine was wanting to see a sunset while the boats sail by...and he trumped by taking me ON a boat to watch the sunset). The quiet enjoyment of each others company in silence, the simple giddiness at life's natural pleasures.

    Ohhh....I would TOTALLY buy this book! Science + =
    And, the poetic angle...he dies/experiment success - love, never controlled/anticipated confounder.

    My writing is weird and hard to literally understand because it's very much like 'stream of consciousness' and dabbling in concrete poetry-type writing. I have a short little piece but, I'm feeling shy...so...no

    Fidelia - that's funny that you laughed! I was all choked up as I pictured my love dying simultaneously with the birth of a new dawn for the human race.

    I might add that us holding hands is the first and only physical contact between us.

    I'd write a love story about a couple with shared psychotic disorder.

    INFJs can sometimes have a dark sense of humor.

    Jenocyde, that's a great touch! (pardon the pun - it was unintentional at first). You MUST write this book.

    As far as laughing, well you have to have some fun in between saving the world from itself. It's exhausting, really. NTs actually are great for comic relief when they are in the mood to send their intellect in that direction.

    AJBlaise - I need more! Tell me about it.

    Thing is, I'd never write a romance novel myself. I'm much more for more generic adventure with many storylines woven together. Love being a part of it, but not an integral part. But rather a much more complete and filled story from many angles.

    I've got some ideas and I'll probably never write anything that huge. But still.

    But Fluffywolf, what makes it good is that is that NTs would be the least likely to write fluffy, shallow romance. All you need is love!

    Let's hear what you got Qre;us! Don't be shy.
