I'm looking for the Trope that describes one of my techniques, so I can compare and contrast.
I purposely use the same words - even copy/paste to ensure it is the same - on a number of occasions. For instance three times I use the phrase
"she felt vulnerable, physically, mentally and emotionally."
All about the female lead interacting with the male lead - two of those times end with a relationship starting kiss (in fact arc word kisses - ' she waited half a life time
/He kissed her)
I have other examples which I know are call backs, I'm just wondering if the whole "she felt vulnerable, physically, mentally and emotionally." counts- it doesn't seem to fit the trope. (I'm not worried about fitting it to a trope- its research into other writers)
Do the job in front of you.
