Okay, so when I outlined this book, I wanted my mc to end up with her coach. There is actually two main love interest, John the coach and Joey the friend, and that was all I wanted. No more interest. I thought it was a great idea and was really excited about it.
After typing 25k words, I started thinking about letting a random boy that was mentioned only three times in the story so far to ask her out and get him immediately rejected. The side character and the mc never really talked until the middle of the story, and as I was writing their small conversation, I slowly started to fall in love with the sc.
Do you guys think it will be okay for me to let my mc end up with this side character that was rarely mentioned until the 25k mark?
I already made a whole bunch of scenes of the mc with the coach and the friend btw, so a lot happened lol.
Would you enjoy a story where the mc ends up with a side character that’s rarely mentioned until halfway, especially after all of the development with the other characters?
