I kind of want to write a story about a teenage girl who has two serious boyfriends. Who each know about her relationship with the other. And are (mostly) okay with the situation -- or at least pretend to be okay with it. (It would probably be the pretending part that would be the beginnings of the tension.)
I've been thinking about this one for a while and even considered having this character's situation be a subplot for some other story I might someday write. Like, she'd be the protag's best friend or something. Then today, I thought, Why not just give this story a try from her point of view? It could be interesting. Right?
Naturally, I decided to make an LJ entry instead of doing anything else with it right now. I'm not sure I can imagine a scenario like this ending well for the characters. I'm not sure what I'd like to see happen or what the girl's journey might be. And I certainly wouldn't want to write something like this if it might be interpreted that I'm judging or having an agenda. Do I even have the finesse to pull it off?
I don't know why I'm so drawn to this idea. Wish fulfillment, maybe? ;-)
(P.S. Has anyone seen anything similar in YA before? I'm so very, very curious...)
