CloudlegtheVolcano Posted May 22, 2019 Share Posted May 22, 2019 I’ve just started a new novel. The main character and his best friend are both aro. (This is not the main focus of the book, but it is a part of both of their identities). The first chapter opens with them talking about being aromantic and afraid to come out. I’m still working on it because it doesn’t really work yet, and I’m not sure if I can get it there. I want the reader to know that they are aromantic, or at least clearly see that they have a strong friendship with no romantic feelings. My question is, do I need this scene at all? Or is it enough just to have a book with no romance, where (for once) the two main characters don’t fall in love? Any thoughts would be appreciated. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
