comment Writing a Platonic Relationship
"Once the obstacles are removed, you have a happy ending and the story is over." The pursuit of romance story is over, but the entire story doesn't have to be. In the book The Wizard in Spite of Himself, the protagonist marries and the next five books are about the married couple and their kids. David & Leigh Eddings have two series about married couples and their continuing adventures. I don't watch Bones, but Bones & Booth get together in S6 and marry in S9, and the show is now in S11.

comment Writing a Platonic Relationship
I'd like to add "obstacles within reason." If you just keep throwing crap in their way, it becomes harder to suspend disbelief. You can only keep the reader aching in suspense for so long before the obstacles start to feel arbitrary and ridiculous.

comment Is it a good idea to start each chapter with a snippet from a fictional book?
@Robert So many people looked for The Book of Counted Sorrows that Dean Koontz finally had to collect all his little epigrams into one volume and publish the thing.

@user16780 Merciful Freya, I had no idea. I'll make sure not to use that as a generic in the future! :D I've edited my answer above.

comment How do I describe the effects of extreme psychological trauma on my protagonist?
This. There's no substitute for research. If you're going to write about extreme psychological trauma, you're going to have to find out what extreme psychological trauma does to people.

Hi, and welcome to Writers. Stack Exchange is not like other sites. We require clear, answerable questions which have the potential to help others. This is a "what to write" question, and it would be applicable only to your situation, so it's off-topic for us.
