Floor 22

You step out of the elevator into an empty room. You notice the walls are black, with just one window. You decide to look out the window.

“Nice view, isn’t it?” a voice says

You turn around, shocked. In the corner stands a mysterious stranger with eyes as dark as the walls. He looks bored–but there’s just something about him that makes you instantly fall in love with him. “Who are you?” you ask, suddenly shy.

“The more important question is who are you,” he replies, smirking slightly with his arms crossed. He has very nice arms, you notice. “And the answer is, you are my love interest, which makes you the most spectacular human in the world.”

You swoon.

“By the way,” he says, lifting up his shirt. “These are my abs”

Have you ever wished you could receive a little guidance from your favorite book boyfriend? Ever dreamed of being the Chosen One in a YA novel? Want to know all the secrets of surviving the dreaded plot twist?

Or maybe you’re just really confused about what “opal-tinted, luminous cerulean orbs” actually are?

Well, popular Twitter personality @broodingYAhero is here to help as he tackles the final frontier in his media dominance: writing a book. Join Broody McHottiepants as he attempts to pen Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me, a “self-help” guide (with activities–you always need activities) that lovingly pokes fun at the YA tropes that we roll our eyes at, but secretly love.

As his nefarious ex, Blondie DeMeani, attempts to thwart him at every turn, Broody overcomes to detail, among other topics, how to choose your genre, how to keep your love interest engaged (while maintaining lead character status), his secret formula for guaranteed love triangle success, and how to make sure you secure that sequel, all while keeping his hair perfectly coiffed and never breaking a sweat.
