It is the second week of November, and therefore the second week of NaNoWriMo.

*Screams* I LOVE THIS TROPE SO MUCH!

As a trope, this is something we see in stories all the time. Why? Because it's something most readers are suckers for.

In this category I'm also going to include the Enemies to Friends trope, because it's the same thing just without...
