"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"
Let's build a world. Explore what we believe by writing. In many ways my characters’ experiences with fate, destiny and free-will mirror my own. What is up to us and what isn’t? It’s one of the great questions of the human experience, I think. But no matter what is for us to control, we must own the identity. You’re a writer if you write. Period. Writing is a lovely way to spend one’s time. Enjoy it. And I hope you enjoy my writing here.

I'm not far enough into season 1 to know this, yet, but I'm told this show features a true Love Triangle--- like legit, you guys. Which prompted me to start thinking about love triangles in general. It's a nifty trick, I will tell you--- one I employ in my books quite regularly. You set the tension spinning with one and then you up it with another--- it's a way to have anticipation and pay off at the same time-- and to always be building to something (with uncertainty). But is a love triangle ever ACTUALLY a love triangle?
Take the classic Kev example-- Dawson-Joey-Pacey. I don't want to offend people, but was anyone out there actually Team Dawson? Did such a thing exist? Similarly I look at Edward-Bella-Jacob. Team Jacob, can you hear me? Are you out there?
My point: love triangles seemed to weighted in one direction. Heavily. We know who we want, we know who SHE/HE wants, it just takes awhile to get there.
BUT-- glorious but! I have been told The Vampire Diaries is a real, legit, keep-surprising-you-you-have-no-idea-who-you-want love triangle. I am excited! This could be a first.
Tell me--- what is your favorite love triangle? And guys: NO VAMPIRE DIARIES SPOILERS!!!
