I really hate when people tell you to never use tropes and cliches. They’re tropes and cliches for a reason! Yeah, don’t go overboard using them all willy-nilly, but writing a few and putting your own spin on it? Why not!
Honestly, writing isn’t always about being the most original originalist to ever original. It’s inevitable that at least some of what you write is going to be sort of the same as someone else. It’s how you pull it off that’s important, in the end. Your uniqueness doesn’t mean a thing unless your story’s good.
