Letter from the editor

Dynamic Duo

One of the most recognizable fictional two-person team are Sherlock Holmes and James Watson. They aren't the only two-man team in fiction by far. Many of us know Hansel and Gretel, or Thelma and Louise.

Each duo has its own power and cooperative structure.

As an Action/Adventure writer, you can use the two-person team up to write a compelling story that covers a large range of skills and emotions. In my examples above, we have a smart detective and his loyal friend (Holmes and Watson), siblings (Hansel and Gretel), and best friends (Thelma and Louise). Each of these duos has a different approach in how the two-person team works, but all have parts where the actions and successes of the team happen because of the cohesion between the two characters.

Additional characters in a story featuring a duo will be enemies and collaborators. They show up for a while, but leave once the adventure is over. The duo stays together or dies together at the end. The idea is to make it so that at the end of each adventure, the two-person team is restored.

Thank you for reading and commenting.

Editing is BLUE wrote: In your last NL (6th Ranger) I thought of Gandor and possibly Hagrid. This time I could picture what the types were by your examples. (reference to "The Sixth Ranger)

I know Hagrid, I have to admit I don't know Gandor. Where is he/she from?
And I agree. Hagrid does have that sixth ranger quality of showing up when needed. At the same time, he also often needs help from the heroes. I'd almost think that Dumbledore fits the Sixth Ranger qualities a little more.
