I'm pulling a Robin Hood....
Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves is one of my all time favorite movies. (Although I'm not a big fan of Kevin Costner). My favorite scene is when Robin Hood and Maid Marion are by a lake/ocean (I'm not sure) and he asks her to deliver a letter for him. He says, "Do it for your King." and she says, "No." He then looks stunned, which Kevin Costner is good at doing. Then she says, "I'll do it for you...." And Bryan Adams starts singing, "Everything I do, I do for you."
I love that moment in all it's cheesy glory! It's inspired me for decades, and now it's inspiring my writing.
So, I've decided to write a similar moment in my YA sci fi, Colonization. Different enough not to copy the scene, but along the same sentiment.
What movie moments inspire you?
