I have returned to my roots, and am writing a story that takes place in the late 1800s. I got this burst of inspiration while re-watching the scene in Titanic where Cal and Rose are having tea/coffee in their dining deck, and he loses his temper. Sadly, this scene is not on YouTube, so I have to break out my circa-1999 DVD to watch it. But I have found plenty of deleted scenes that showcase Cal’s creepy attitude towards Rose, which I am using for my male antagonist. My female protagonist is much like Rose, but she is much more careful in how she is around her fiancé/husband.
I don’t think this one will be too long, but we’ll see.
