Writing Prompt Wednesday – Opposites Attract

So all these Sad Puppy, Rabid Puppy, Hugo Award shenanigans are the main inspiration for today’s prompt. Over the past few months, we have seen a lot of horrible, vile things said in regards to this with people just acting inexcusably deplorable to each other. 

It’s all sad really. Fiction is supposed to be fun, but that doesn’t mean it can’t have something important/political to say.  There is more to Science Fiction and Fantasy than just explosions and magic.  

So the writing prompt today, is to take two characters with drastically, passionate opposing views on something (you pick the topic), and put them in a situation where they have to interact about that thing.  The catch is, the two characters must be good friends (or lovers, or family, etc) and while they disagree vehemently, by the end of the scene they must remain as they began. 

Respect. It’s important. 

Till next time,
