I came across this #FangirlingOnFriday and was instantly in love. I just have to do it👌💕
A literary trope is the use of figurative language, via word, phrase or an image, for artistic effect such as using a figure of speech. The word trope has also come to be used for describing commonly recurring literary and rhetorical devices, motifs or clichés in creative works.
Villian & Main Character Dynamics
This trope I am absolutely trash for! When I say Villian & MC Dynamics I don’t necessarily mean romantically. I mean they got respect for each other, their relationship can be very grey & complex. Plus I love intense conversations they have.
- Rachel & Trent in Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison in the Hollows series💕 Also Rachel & Big Al
- The Darkling & Alina in the whole The Shadow and Bone trilogy by Leigh Bardugo!👏💕
Do I even need to explain? Angst. Tension. Build-up. Explode.
- Rhysand & Feyra. 💕
- Dragon & Agnieszka 😍😫
- Akiva & Karou 🔥💙 (they give off insta-love vibes but there’s just too much history, pain, & emotions)
