If your hero and heroine are both incapacitated at the same time, your story will bog in a major way.
You’d think that would be obvious, no?

Snicker. Is that in the :rulez: ?
If it’s not, it should be.
The hero’s in surgery and the heroine’s in a coma. Gee, whatever shall the reader do? Oh, I don’t know. Maybe put down this book and pick up one in which the characters are actually conscious?
Sure. Not a problem.
:rofl: Or you could introduce the dream fantasy sex sequence…
Omigod, I did a similar thing once too!
It’s nice not to be alone. :clap:
Hehe, that’s why I write epic historical fiction with 5 MCs and a dozen other important characters; and omnisicient POV. Chance that one of them is alive and conscient at a time is better odds. :neener:
Maybe you should pull a Bobby Ewing (I think it was him, it was one of those damn Ewing’s) and make it all a dream. :tomato:
Hey Shannon, I didn’t forget. I asked some of my buds to recommend funny YAs (I’ve read a bunch, most really good, just none I would call laugh out loud funny), and came up with a few suggestions: The Clouds Above (graphic novel) by Jordan Crane, Millicent Min Girl Genius and the sequel Stanford Wong Flunks Big Tim both by Lisa Yee, King Dork by Frank Portman, and Once Upon a Marigold by Jean Ferris. I hope this helps:boogie:.
Haven’t figured out what to do with them yet. Maybe some scenes from Rossi’s POV. :eyebrow:
