Playing With / Love Overrides the Law

Go To

Basic Trope: Breaking the law won't bring consequences if it's for the sake of love.

  • Played Straight: Bob rushes through the airport to see Aerith before her flight and everyone helps him out including security. Either she leaves, or she cancels her flight right at that moment.
  • Exaggerated:
  • Downplayed:
    • Bob didn't break the law in any way, but is forgiven for either breaking some sort of rule or being an inconvenience, all because he was in love.
    • Bob's love is platonic.
  • Subverted:
    • After Bob rushes through the airport to see Aerirth before she takes her flight, security tries to track him down.
    • Security lets Bob through, but he still has to pay the price.
    • Bob knows that he is comitting a crime, so he pretends to be a passenger or staff member and sneaks in to see Aerith.
