@ nooneomportant2: Oh, I see. Yeah, I understand what you're talking about completely. Writer's block sucks so much. Also, it's cool.
Okay, well, about thinking about other obstacles for Ash, how about instead of testing his physical strength, testing his mental and emotional strength. Like for intelligence, they give him something pertaining to math, since he's weakest at that. Lol, something with nothing but math symbols and he just yells, "WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?" Lol, that would be so funny. Lol, or give him a ridiculously hard riddle that in the end turns out to be so easy. It would be a good theme to show how in a relationship one has to do things they
never expected. I'm thinking this to be insanely humorous than serious, so I don't know if these are good ideas for what you had in mind
Or lol, having three Mays and he has to finger out who the real May is, only they're ridiculously different than how May looks. Like one has an a big nose or another has really big eyes or one looks like a guy wearing May's outfit, and in the end the one that actually looks like May really isn't. I would laugh sooo hard if someone actually put that in a story.
