Flags. It's a seemingly simple concept: a piece of cloth with a design on it that represents something.  Simple, right?

On Awkward Characters

Media, unfortunately, often dictates how certain groups of people are perceived in society. This is why representation is so important in TV, movies, and books. This need for representation goes beyond just race, gender, and sexuality. It is also important with personality types and niches of humans. For instance, the way awkward characters are treated is often a misrepresentation.

The number one problem with romance, as I said above, is when the chemistry seems forced. When two characters are forced together for no reason other than because they need to be in a relationship, it comes across as... well, forced. Force relationship are dry, and much worse than letting characters stay single.
