Okay, I'm working out the plot for a book and I could use your help. Which scenario do you think is better:
Super-human Joe loves Sally, but Sally wants to be super-human too and can only do so by giving her love to super-human Bill (who doesn't love her back.) All the while she begins to love Joe and has to fight her feelings of love for him so that she can talk Bill into loving her. She must choose between her desire to follow her heart, or her desire to be super-human.
Super-human Joe loves Sally, but she doesn't love him back, just loves the feeling of being super-human, and only he can give her that. All the while she really falls in love with ordinary, regular human Kenny but she can't believe it's really love because it pales in comparison to the depth of feeling she has with Joe--just not love. She must choose between her desire to be super-human and her desire to follow her heart.
So, basically, either way she's just picking between 2 guys, but in #1 it's between 2 super-guys, and in #2 it's between a super-guy and a regular guy.
My other question is do you think these have been overdone?
