New chapter

This is just a quick update in story status. I should have the next update to my story, Ten-Tailed Wolf, ready by tomorrow. After that, I think I'm going to focus on Ashikabi no Shinobi for a bit, just so I can get the escape arc out of the way since its the last canon arc in my story.

That's about all I have to say. If you guys have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to ask them. Also, remember that if you want me to give advice on something specific in the writing tips section, let me know.

Now that all of that is out of the way, I'll leave you guys with a trope.
Belligerent Sexual Tension

"Wonderful girl! Either I'm gonna kill her, or I'm beginning to like her!"
— Han SoloA New Hope, about Princess Leia Organa

There's a couple, usually a sweet but quickly angered female paired with asecretly-kind jerk, who are not able to admit their feelings. At the top of their lungs.
Despite the conflict, there is an attraction. This is obvious to everyone around except the couple. Confront them with the obvious, they'll deny deny deny. Sometimes they will progress to admitting their friendship but insist they are Just Friends. Eventually, they can admit their feelings to practically anyone except their loved one. It ends up where both characters dance around admitting their feelings as if the words "I love you" are some sort of death curse, much to the frustration of the audience and the other characters.
Older Than Steamsince this is used in Much Ado About Nothing, and has varying degrees of popularity at different times.
If there is a Love Epiphany with one of these characters, expect it to change almost nothing, at least in the short term.
Given how entertaining they are, expect this couple to be popular with the fandom.
