Is it alright to have two of my characters who are siblings to have a romantic relationship?
Topic: The sisters brothers characters
July 15, 2019 / By Nicole Question:
My characters Xavier and Nicoleta only had each other after their mother was killed. Their two older brothers saw Nicoleta as a demon and Xavier as a weakling. Intermarrying is common among their kind, but should I keep it out? They only kiss each other on the cheek and hold hands It doesn`t describe them getting all hot and heavy

your story, your choice. i think its alright since its common among their kind. in fact i think it would be interesting because it adds another dimension to the characters that seperates them from humans (if they aren't human). and also in blue bloods, a vampire series, its common for siblings to bond (marry) one another, because they are actually soul mates, not just brother and sister. so its been done in other places, and anne rice kind of did stuff like that, although hers takes it way farther than you sound like you're going to be taking it. so i say go for it, it wouldn't stop me from reading it :)

Sajid was a lonely guy just like i was at the time. he'd call me here in Texas all the way from Pakistan and even texted me. the calls were free for me. but the texts (regular texts not smss) were not free. up until now, my phone/text messages are on my sister Andrea's (not her real name of course) name/account. she of course noticed calls...from Pakistan! lol it was a huge deal, they worried. but i tried to assure them everything was ok. just like i did when i tried to assure them about Tony when we were together. they worried. they always worry because i never date "normal" guys. um, that makes me laugh now, but know this: during those times i would not laugh. you start to get better balance in your psyche and not let things get to you.
Anyway. you also know about Fortunate. i mention him because he's been the only man i've met in person who i'd had the slightest knowlege only from online. i wouldnt recommend ever having the contact i had with him with so little knowledge of what they're like.
let's just call your girl Judy. take your time to really know if she's trustworthy. dont meet her in a heartbeat, i know from experience! just the way you took your time to trust me. in fact, even though she really is your girlfriend, be gently suspicious of her. be very aware. try things here and there to really know how trustworthy she is. we might wanna talk about this later on our chats. it's up to you if you wana ask. anyway, get to "know" her only through chat for now. just like Mark (you) got to know Isabel (our 'lil sis') and Donna (me. lol)!
Some people could find this offensive and you could get bad reviews for your story because people do not accept this because it is seen as wrong. It really depends on how you write it, if you can write it where it doesn't seem sexual then go for it or if you want to make a statement on originality then you can do it. Does your story kind of depend on the intermarrying? If it does you should keep it, if it doesn't then maybe leave it out because critics would not like it.

No, you wouldn't be the first to write about incest. There was this guy named Sophocles, among others.
Seriously, Listen to Wesley B. and also realize that Jonathan Irving had an incestuous relationship in The Hotel New-Hampshire. If it's good enough for him, it should be good enough for you.

If it is part of the plot, include it as much as it needs to be present to tell the story honestly and completely.
Don't shy away because it is taboo. Most of the world's greatest literature includes taboo themes, scenes, and topics. From Lolita (adult man, early teen girl sexual relationship) to Catcher in the Rye (prostitution, homosexual overtures, etc) to Huckleberry Finn (slave beatings and dialect) to Call of the Wild (animal abuse) to Anna Karenina (adultery, carnal desires) . . . many great works have taboo moments.
Service the story, not possible readers, and you'll be fine. Never edit yourself for people who may not read your work anyway. Why cater to the desires of readers who don't want to read what you want to write?

It's likely that those reading it may feel a little queasy at the thought, but does that matter?
I mean, even if you write the most romantic, heart-string-pulling story in the universe, someone's gonna think, "Oh, but gross. They're siblings."
Still, I say that if the story calls for that, you should follow your gut.
