This live panel event is available for members with full, extended, or time traveler admission levels.
Central to the plot or not, we’ll be discussing the perfect romance: from setting up believable struggles in relationships to the right amount of swoon.
Events can only be accessed on the date and time they become available. Panel Events open for questions 30 minutes before the session starts.
This event will remain accessible until March 1st for members with General and Full Admission, and March 22nd for members with Extended and Time Traveler Admission.
