Lynn's favorite plot devices......

Over the last two years that I've been a steady observer of this community, I've noticed a lot of posts about the plot devices Lynn likes to use. So far, we've seen:

- a love of people rebelling against tyrannical fathers.

- boy-girl pairs of children, one a brunette, the other fair-haired.

- relationships with one of the first opposite-gendered people of the same race a character encounters.

- a lack of interest in blended families.

- the belief that culture shock is a fatal obstacle to romance.


- an over-fondness for tales of plucky immigrants.

There are others that are just as over-used but I think you get the point: one plucky immigrant is good but boatloads of them get to be annoying. My question is which of these is the most annoying.
