There’s a lot of interfamilial drama going on, and several arcs (something like side quests, not vital for the story to progress, but important too in order to fully understand each characters’ personality/decisions/etc.), where the MC can learn what’s truly going on and what happened between them in the past, before they were born
@Elsee thank you, I’m glad you like it so much!
Regarding the male ROs: truth to be told, Maynard and Lovage do sound like real bastards because they are, simple as that. Lupin isn’t on the same level as them, he’s… just a bit rough around the edges. Is it unfair that two (or three, if you end up disliking Lupin too) of the male ROs are pricks? Maybe, but they ended up like that (because of their role in the story, their background, that’s just how they roll, etc.). Though your MC won’t have to deal with the attitude of both of them at the same time (when romanced), since they are gender locked. Maynard is for female MCs whereas Lovage is only interested in men (and non binary folks), so at most you only have an asshole-y RO.
Dunno, maybe I should make another RO, but I already created Lovage; my initial draft had 2-3 more women than men, and I may add more or even remove some male ROs, so I’m not sure. Thank you for your encouragement, and don’t be so wary of the ROs, they may end up being much better than what you just read
Given that he did marry for love, against his parents’ wishes, it would be unfair for him to not let the MC do the same. Although… Sometimes things happen to be beyond his control
Because I want to make you suffer, wasn’t that clear enough?
Datura likes some ROs better than others
