The Power of Three

Since the reasons I write UF/PR are a bit dull (and basically boil down to "that seems to be the way my brain works"), I thought I'd share some thoughts on love triangles. And yes, I know that I'm making a majorly weird face in the video preview.

Question for you: Do you have a favorite YA love triangle?


  1. I like the Joss Whedon endy bit >.> :D
    also, THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS. I'm working on a YA memoir thing that has love triangles, and I've been trying to figure out exactly why the love triangle has felt so necessary in it for a while now, and this hits the nail on the head! :)

  2. Very well put, Kathleen! So often, a love triangle feels like a device, especially when there are two 'hot' guys involved. I'm looking forward to reading Hemlock even more now that you've tossed those hot guys over your shoulder :)))
