rosefox: A fox writing book reviews. (writing)
Arms: *hurt*

Two novels: *are barely started*

Brain: Hey, it would be cool to write a contemporary romance that inverts the childhood sweethearts trope by making them childhood buddies in an urban neighborhood, one of whom comes back to the 'hood after failing at farming.

Me: What. No. No no no. I am not starting a new project. No.

Brain: You know how there are a million books about men who return to small towns after failing to make it in the big city, and the women who've always loved them save them from their dangerous unmasculine ambitions—

Me: YES AND I HATE THEM

Brain: Okay, so, these two girls grow up next door to each other, one boy's Jamaican immigrant parents run a grocery store and the other boy's Chinese immigrant parents run a Chinese takeout place, and the Jamaican kid tries to become a farmer and totally fumbles it and comes back to the 'hood, which is gentrifying, and they both try to keep their family businesses afloat while falling in love.

Me: Another M/M romance, though? Why do I keep thinking those up?

Brain: Make one of them trans, problem solved. Or both, both would be fine.

Me: ...

Brain: I think the Chinese kid's "aunt" is actually her dad's girlfriend.

Three novels: *are barely started*
