Storytelling Element - Get the Girl


We've all seen them. They parade through the theaters in the summer, they line the shelves (usually separate from the other novels, in case it's contagious), and there's a literal endless supply of bad fanfiction all built around this one concept:

ROMANCE


But there's more to romance than just Getting the Girl, and the character whose primary goal is Get the Girl might not be interested in romance. (Ew.) Anyway, the two elements are related, but not the same. Let's break that down.


When a character has the goal of Get the Girl, it's usually either a secondary/minor goal or it's a very shallow character.
