Anonymous asked: I am planning on writing a series of Novels; the Main Protagonist is a vampire Detective. I guess you could say he is somewhat of a sociopath, and the Second Character is a woman he changed into a vampire during the Victorian era and he has been teaching her how to adapt to her new life and I plan for them to become romantically involved, (somehow) but I don’t Want to ruin my Main Character’s personality and I don’t want to kill off the Woman either. what should I do?
Divi: Sounds slightly difficult, but also a good challenge! When it comes to characters that are not prone to being romantically involved with anyone, the best thing you can do is to have a lifeline between them. Something that keeps them glued together, whatever it may be. It can be anything that corresponds with their personality. To maintain his personality, it could be something entirely out of his control, like work-related and whatnot which forces him to interact with her more often, thus giving you the opportunity to establish a relationship without it going against his personality.
