For exercise (C)-
Change-intruder alarm – “big trouble” from another ship – while she is making repairs. “incoming”
Emotion – loss of autonomy/extinction (depending on the extent of the threat)
Why do they catch my interest –
For exercise (F) – suspense, movement. Things are happening. A sense of outside conflict for a character who is already in a bad spot (repairs and even a little trouble being too much right now). Running and quick action means a big change soon.
Change-Buying a haunted hous for their home repair/renovation business – risk to finances for their joint venture and a project she’ll have to work on: is it really haunted? What will happen to the house they bought?
Emotion – Uncertainty; fear of what might happen financially; conflict with her business partner over this purchase – separation?
Why do they catch my interest – Humor “partner in grime”; the romance between two very different people who are also tied as business partners and the sense they are still working things out – and need to make a go of this. He just bought this house. Who’s going to make the decisions? Will they stay together?
