the great jello incident
By Sophia Luo & Amy Parlapiano
not your average love triangle… an alien love triangle
We were inspired to write our piece by our discussion of books that we were reading at the moment. One of us (Sophia) was reading a romance novel containing a love triangle and we discussed the common tropes that love triangles often fall into. We then embarked on a journey to write a love triangle with alien main characters in order to give a little uniqueness to the average love triangle story. This is a project that has been in the work for months, writing different point of views of the same scene.
