Plot Algebraic Equations
Aphrodite's Curve Ball [H + H + A = LT]
To plot a love triangle, find the sum of the hero, heroine, and antagonist.
Boolean Secret Baby [H + H = (H + H)2 = H2 + 2H2 + H2 = H + 2H + H = H + H + H + H = B]
If the hero and heroine get together often enough, they will simplify their relationship, work out all their problems, and have a baby in last chapter.
Habeas Crime Fictionous [P / BLI + ES / TA = DB]
Protagonist divided by bimbo love interest plus ethnic sidekick divided by thuggish antagonist equals dead body.
Janus's Law of Duplicity [PT + RH = -A, P = A]
If the plot twists and red herrings do not result in an antagonist, then the protagonist is the antagonist.
Moufang Switcheroo [(PL)(IA) = P(LI)A
If the protagonist shares a love interest with the antagonist, then the love interest is out to screw one or both of them.
Properties of the Pissed-off [P < C, P + M (?GS + CC?) > C]
The protagonist is less than conflict, but the protagonist plus motivation is greater than conflict, especially if great sex and a cute chick are added into the equation.
Unending Order of the Infinite Series [P + . . . . + (C/(infinity)).FI = (number of open threads/2). (first + last motivations)=(infinity/2).(P+(C/(infinity)).FI)=(infinity/2).(P/(infinity)).A =(A-P)/Advance = KJA]
The bestselling fiction series shall be written until the publisher goes belly-up or the author drops dead, in which case Kevin J. Anderson will take over writing it.
(And they said that I'd never use it after high school. Ha.)
