Usually I have the opposite problem to the one that I've having now: ie. I'm trying to write an "adult" scene but my usually randy characters have suddenly gone all chaste. But my present scenario is that in the fantasy story that I'm trying to write, the love lives of two royal characters (neither of who is the protagonist) are almost completely drowning out the more important things that need to be developed. Namely the plot.

The fact that this is a PG book I'm writing for pre-teens and that I can't even write intimate details of their romance off-off-page isn't putting them off in the slightest. I could toss them into the Arctic Ocean and they would still be as horny as hell.

I'm dying to get some plot bunnies for the rest of this fic, but I cannot get these jumped-up teenagers under control. Any suggestions?

Ask the characters how they think the story would be without them. With death threat in place, see if they shape up. If not, fully consider following through on the threat. How essential are they? Or, complete personality changes.

Heh heh, that's an idea XD Though I would never let out that while neither is the protagonist, they are pretty essential to the plot - the prince especially.
