"I’ve become skeptical of the unwritten rule that just because a boy and girl appear in the same feature, a romance must ensue. Rather, I want to portray a slightly different relationship, one where the two mutually inspire each other to live– if I’m able to, then perhaps I’ll be closer to portraying a true expression of love."

Yes. This is absolutely one possible trajectory. Another is that they get smashed (after some revolution or demon vanquishing or somesuch) and bang without protection and have a shotgun wedding and a kid that completely alters their priorities and values via pheromones and the like, and this kid grows up with an improbable dose of angsty nerd. Siblings may follow, depending on circumstances.

"The mind-set of the theoretical scientist is useful not only for probing the ultimate secrets of the universe but for many other tasks as well. All around us are facts that are related to one another. Of course, they can be regarded as separate entities and learned that way. But what a difference it makes when we see them as part of a pattern! Many facts then become more that just items to be memorized – their relationship permits us to use a compressed description, a kind of theory, a schema, to apprehend and remember them. They begin to make some sense. The world becomes a more comprehensible place."

From the Daily Show segment “We May Have Problems, But at Least We’re Not Jailing Artists for 3-D Printing Their Vaginas"
Japan— where artist Megumi Igarashi was arrested last week for distributing plans to 3D print her vagina, thus breaking Japanese obscenity laws…
…Now, you’re probably wondering “Why would someone sell 3D models of their vagina?” Well, duh, to raise money… to 3D print an even bigger vagina; specifically, a vagina-shaped boat…
…which, if I’m not mistaken, is also the plot of Field of Dreams.
I believe this is what Geechy Guy calls a “joke grenade

shoutout to Mr. Eicher, who taught me this in high school; the notes this post has accumulated are an extension of his life’s work
My high school chemistry teacher, Dr. Cindy “Doc” Maris, taught me this. It was only after high school that I realized that while not all my favorite teachers taught science, many of them did, and the rest of my science teachers were still more memorable than average. Perhaps it’s got something to do with individual motivation being less financial on average because it’s easier to make money elsewhere with a STEM degree.
Edit: Or maybe I just connected with the subjects more and the teacher preferences followed.
