The meet-cute. It's the fantastic opportunity for a writer to introduce not only their two characters to each other, but for those two characters to make a lasting impression on the reader. As it's so perfectly described in the movie, The Holiday, two people go into a department to buy pajamas they've forgotten on a trip—the man says, I just need a bottom, the woman just needs a top. Et voila! The meet-cute is born. Recently while reading Over the Fence by Melanie Moreland, I “met” two characters who only know each other through the fence bordering their properties—think Norm Abrams from Home Improvement. The characters haven't even met yet face-to-face, and I'm already in love with them. What's the most unique meet-cute you've read?
