Well, I just want something that is kind of sexy or romantic, whatever it is. The main objective is the attraction of two characters, and how they deal with it. So, ranging from a highschool drama story to a science fiction war story, where the conflict could be anything from survival to dealing with the difficulty of being different, or maybe just the issues of overcoming shyness and having trust in someone. I'm interested in the homosexual relationship story because it is going to present conflict, no matter what kind of story it is. On the one level people can be so shy about the matter of relationship, or either that very open, so the dynamic between two very strong personalities can create a conflict. There is also the conflict of homosexuality being taboo, so you will have these characters who can't feel the "normal" way about romance, and try to deal with it in their own ways, or others will be very in-your-face.
My main interest is in the process of two characters falling in love, or going into a relationship that may or may not be based on love, so the conclusion of the story is going to answer whether or not they ended up together. So, if it's a horror, and one character is completely insane, you want the other character to get free from that mess, or maybe the insane person to become sane. Or maybe, post-apocolyptic or zombie story, it can be about two characters who become affectionate because they are simply the only people left
If it's going to be a softer, more feel-good story, maybe it's just two shy characters, or just a "how these two met" sort of romance.
Or it could be two characters who have known each other for a while, but just come to term with their feelings. You can take that sort of idea into a sports story with team members, or a coming-of-age story, or anything like that.
So, in essence, I'm looking for a character driven relationship (not necessarily love) story that is directed towards older audiences, but is appropriate for this site.
I hope that covers everything.
