    Default Romance novel plot generator

    I've been playing with this for a while, but it finally got expanded into something more than just some randomly generated text. Behold, the romance novel plot generator.

    It does standard straight romance:

    The girl's name is Elizabeth and she is young-looking and focused. She enjoys reading. Her occupation is secretary and overall she is scary smart.

    Her hair is streaked with reddish highlights and very long and straight. She is 5'7" and has an athletic body with firm breasts. She wears feminine business suits.

    She meets Nicholas in a Secret Compound. He is an accountant, unhealthy and private, and he enjoys dancing. He appears to be big-hearted.

    His hair is blond and windblown. He is very tall and is built like a body builder. He wears off-the wall, unique clothes that make him stand out in a crowd.

    Answer these questions:

    * Why do they meet there?
    * Why is she there?
    * Why is he there?



    The obstacle to their romance that they must overcome is money disparity. When a robbery happens it brings them to the realization that they can overcome the obstacle.
    It does gay and lesbian romance:

    The main character's name is William and he is fit and hungry. He enjoys sewing. His occupation is scientist and overall he is optimistic.

    His hair is honey blond and windblown. He is 6'1" and is built like a body builder. He wears very casual clothes like jeans, shorts and t-shirts.

    He meets Jeffrey (the protaganist) in a small city. He is in the Navy, geeky and quirky, and he enjoys cooking. He appears to be ready for anything.

    His hair is auburn and needs to be cut. He is 6'4" and has a well developed chest and strong arms. He wears high-powered business suits.

    Answer these questions:

    * Why do they meet there?
    * Why is the main character there?
    * Why is the protagonist there?



    The obstacle to their romance that they must overcome is money owed. When career issues interfere it brings them to the realization that they can overcome the obstacle.
    It even does paranormal romance:

    The girl's name is Madison and she is petite and shy. She enjoys singing. Her occupation is teacher and overall she is a happy person. She is also an angel in human form.

    Her hair is black and to her shoulders and straight. She is 5'8" and is perfectly proportioned. She wears clothes that fit her work and leisure activities

    She meets Matthew in a store. He is an actor, athletic and troubled, and he enjoys singing. He appears to be suffering an ethical dilemma. He is also immortal.

    His hair is blonde and over his collar and straight . He is very tall and is built like a body builder. He wears clothes that fit his work and leisure activities.

    The paranormal situation these two face is a malevolent fairy is hurting people.

    Answer these questions:

    * Why do they meet there?
    * Why is she there?
    * Why is he there?



    The obstacle to their romance that they must overcome is that if people found out about the paranormal situation and their involvement, there would be serious social consequences. When one of them nearly dies it brings them to the realization that they can overcome the obstacle.
    Now if only someone would write about the angel, the immortal and their battles against the malevolent fairy.
    So now they are just dirt-covered English people in fur pelts with credit cards.

    His hair is honey blond and in a ponytail tied with a strand of leather. He is 6'3" and has a well developed chest and strong arms. He wears off-the wall, unique clothes that make him stand out in a crowd.

    The mystery or crime situation these two face is a missing Last Will and Testament and one of them has a long lost twin they didn't know about.

    Answer these questions:

    * Why do they meet there?
    * Why is she there?
    * Why is he there?



    The obstacle to their romance that they must overcome is they don't agree on what is going on. When one of them gets hurt. it brings them to the realization that they can overcome the obstacle.
    So now they are just dirt-covered English people in fur pelts with credit cards.

    Someone show me where the Secret Compound is, please.

    What the hell is a secret compound anyway? It sounds like a company's closely guarded formula to rejuvenate your skin.

    Oh, and:

    The girl's name is Olivia and she is energetic and benevolent . She enjoys dancing . Her occupation is business owner and overall she is sad .

    Her hair is streaked with reddish highlights and short and curly . She is 5'5" and has an hourglass figure with full breasts and rounded hips . She wears feminine business suits

    She meets Chalmers in a Foreign land . He is a Park Ranger, strong with wide shoulders and mothering, and he enjoys dancing. He appears to be scary smart.

    His hair is blonde and in a ponytail tied with a strand of leather. He is 6'3" and is muscular. He wears high-powered business suits.

    Answer these questions:

    Why do they meet there?
    Why is she there?
    Why is he there?


    The obstacle to their romance that they must overcome is unfaithful . When slander takes place it brings them to the realization that they can overcome the obstacle.
    Not sure how to interpret the last sentences. "The obstacle to their romance that they must overcome is unfaithful." Okay, let's postulate a guy named Ted. Ted is the obstacle to their romance and he is unfaithful. Now it makes sense. Huh, it's got me fleshing out (heh) the plot already. I guess it works!

    Although I'm going to find it hard to explain why a Park Ranger wears high-powered business suits. The better to intimidate the poachers, perhaps.

    No better occupation for a vampire. Desert farming = common sense.

    The main character's name is Joseph and he is energetic and benevolent . He enjoys crafts . His occupation is business owner and overall he is suffering a financial problem .

    His hair is streaked with blonde highlights and needs to be cut . He is 6'4" and is perfectly proportioned. He wears high-powered business suits

    He meets Joshua (the protaganist) in a Store . He is an artist, exotic and aggressive , and he enjoys crafts. He appears to be full of common sense.

    His hair is black and over his collar and straight. He is 6'1" and is thin. He wears high-powered business suits.

    Answer these questions:

    Why do they meet there?
    Why is the main character there?
    Why is the protagonist there?


    The obstacle to their romance that they must overcome is money - Owed . When slander takes place it brings them to the realization that they can overcome the obstacle.
    Okay, they meet in a craft store obviously, since that's their common interest. Joseph is a business owner, so I bet he owns the craft store, but he has a financial problem. Oooh, he must be the one who owes money. Joshua must be a wealthy artist if he's running around in power suits, so maybe he offers to help Joe, but then someone slanders them by saying that Joe is using Josh for money and only when the two guys face down their own fears and pasts can they finally realize that they are truly meant to be.

    That...came together eerily well, actually. Huh!

    The time-traveler ones inevitably make me think of Doctor Who. And I can totally see him battling a zombie trying to steal power.

    The sad thing is that some of these are perilously close to one of my novels. Combine time travel, werewolves, and a Victorian/Sherlock Holmes mystery, and we're basically there.

    Blame Twilight - I think we have also had enough of vampires for a while.

    Chances are we will get malicious evil spirits for a while. Seriously, the number of people who don't have a bag of salt to hand is ridiculous.

    Shame they are not as scary as the Victorian versions though.
    In the land of the blind, the one-arm man is king.
