The trope: Oh no, they've been fighting their feelings for each other! Oh no, now they have to share this apartment/office/tiny cabin! Oh no, it's time to go to sleep and THERE'S ONLY ONE BED! Oh nooo...or ooooh yes?
Fake RelationshipThe trope: Two people pretend they are in love because of: 1) Work Reasons; 2) Family Reasons; 3) Societal Reasons; 4) Their Pasts; 6) Their Futures; 7) Um...Plot? Inevitably, our fakers catch real feelings.
The trope: Opposites attract, even when they think they're repulsed by each other. They're always trading barbs and insisting to friends that they can't stand each other! Really! Fighting? Nah, it's actually all foreplay...
Enemies to Lovers
The trope: They're on again, off again...on again (again). They've lost that lovin' feeling. They broke up over a misunderstanding years ago, but fate has a funny way of intervening...
The trope: One of them pretended to be someone they're not, Because of Reasons, and now they're both trapped in a web of lies! "Will they still love me when they find out I'm a prince/spy/millionaire heiress?" (Spoiler alert: They will.)
The trope: At least one character works in the food industry in some way. Super-cute bakery? Reality food competition? Food trucks? Yes to all. Mr. Shakespeare might have said music is the food of love, but we're pretty sure he really meant cupcakes.
