So how do relationships in your stories work out? Do they cross divides (I would hope at least one did!)? What are those divides and how did they come about? How are the obstacles in relationships worked out? What happens to those who defy your society's norms?
Of course sometimes obstacles are not overcome. I saw Romeo and Juliet this week (as performed by the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company as a National Theatre Live production) and was enthralled by it. It's interesting in that although I knew full well how this story ended, I was still gripped by how the story comes to that conclusion. Its overall message of the pointlessness of continual enmity and hatred is, sadly, as timely as ever.
