If you had to guess what a religious/fantasy comedy, a classic regency romance, a space opera, and a teen vampire soap opera have in common, what would you say?
Well if you’re smart, you’d say “trope” because I basically gave it away in the title.
Specifically I mean Good Omens, Pride and Prejudice, The Empire Strikes Back, and Vampire Diaries. And also I mean a specific romance trope that most people are at least familiar with: enemies to lovers. That’s right, Crowley and Aziraphale, Elizabeth and Darcy, Han and Leia, and Damon and Elena all follow the same romance trope in their plots and subplots. So do about a kergillion others but these are the ones I came up with off the top of my head.
