I hate stories when the guy is a jerk to the girl at the beginning because he is important and later he lost his privilege somehow and the girl doesn't recognize him even if his attitude reminds her a lot of how jerk he was to her before, they become friends, they fall in love, but then, when she finally recognizes him (because he was different during most part of the story, he was cursed or he looks way too different in other clothing, etc) she immediately gets angry at him even and sees him as the worse person of the world.
I'm just like, WTF girl, don't you see how he change during this whole time?!
Even in some stories he tries to explain to her, or give her some hints about his past, but she is completely oblivious and clueless or she doesn't even care about that until the reveal.
She acts like she was empathetic towards him, but at the minute she founds out that he was the jerk of the beginning she acts like nothing that they went through matters.
What's the worst thing about this part? If it's a movie, it's just a bunch of time wasted on how sad they are when they separated and later reconciled because the plot needs them to be reunited again before the climax.
If we are realistic with this it will end like this:
-She forgives him because they earn that friendship/romance
-She doesn't forgive him because she is still mad about how jerk he was at the beginning and they never see each other ever again
-She forgives him and he betrays her being a jerk again
I think this movie is the only one that works that trope well, it's not a romance, but even for a friendship, they do similar stuff with the characters, and the part that they get angry to each other don't last half an hour and don't get dramatic at all, they forgive to each other easily because they already become friends so, that's how it should be too in romances with similar settings.
