Plot The novel is propelled through its hundred or thousand pages by a device known as the story or plot. This is frequently conceived by the novelist in very simple terms, a mere nucleus, a jotting on an old envelope:
The rest of the commercial is a man frantically driving cross-country in a race against his beloved's wedding to another — which he can accomplish in record time, because he's driving the make and model of Volkswagen they're advertising — and throwing the church doors open right as the priest says, with dramatic reverberation, "speak now or forever hold your peace".
The commercial ends with the caption "fasten your seatbelts". One example was a city council that was about to vote on a lucrative development project, which would involve the razing of a building used as a community center for troubled teen-agers; just before the mayor was about to call for the vote — and a well-timed "speak now"-type silence — supporters of the community center burst in at the last second and urged the council successfully to stop the development.
Similar to the Volkswagen example above, Toyota launched one that showed a man driving through a country club in his Camry being chased by another car. During this, he's narrating.
Drove to her wedding. Did NOT forever hold my peace. Forced into an Arranged Marriage with Yuna for the "sake" of her country, Princess Cagalli is despondent and resigned as she approaches the altar.

Notice that there's a small variation: Further points for scale comes from how he had to be prepared to take on Orb's military to get to her, since she is the head of state. Of course, being a One-Man Army they barely factored into his consideration and the few units that came after him were all quickly dispatched.
In Mai-Otomeas a variation, Akane's lover Kazuya disrupts her Meister ceremony, just as she is about to become the King of Florince's Otome, proclaims that he loves her, and the two flee away.
It is later revealed that Kazuya becomes the new King of Cardair and Akane is forcefully contracted to him as his Otome, allowing them to be together but effectively cancelling the possibility of sex between them.
Not only didn't it work, but Shinsen dies. Saiga tries this later, when Kagura herself is about to be forced to marry Suitengu. It works much better this time. Subverted in that Sanji gets told off, and that it's Nami's friend Lola who really breaks it up.

Seeming subverted as his speech was political in nature and his overt reason was to spite Britania, but his relationship with Tianzi and Tianzi responding with a blush when Kaguya asked if she was in love with him, play the trope straight after all.
The fact that the wedding was also a sham to give the Chinese Federation over to Britannia as part of a corrupt plot by the Empresses's cohort of eunuchs also helped.
And as she's a big time Mermaid Yakuza boss's daughter interrupting a wedding involving another Marmaid Yakuza daughter, she's carrying a big ol' katana. The manga Negima Neo has a moment for this which degenerate into ranged battle. Curiously, in this verse Fate was the perfect Prince Charming Asuna was marrying.
Most Etoile pairs end up becoming couples if they aren't already, and Shizuma bursts into the chapel at the last minute to prevent this. Or so he thinks, because Madoka was only replacing the true bride her older sister during a wedding essay.
Lupin, via recording, interrupts the Archbishop Who is actually Lupin in disguise right after he says the trope name. Played for Laughs and subverted in Great Teacher Onizukawhen Kunio races against time, crashes what he thinks is his single mother getting married to some middle-aged salaryman, and promptly goes on a rampage Combined with Wedding Smashers in The Last: At the wedding of Wally West and Linda Park, it was the bride who objected, not because she didn't want to get married, but because there'd been a certain amount of trauma preceding the ceremony and she wanted to make sure that the groom had his head screwed on straight before they did anything irrevocable.
Averted in the case of Clark and Lois in Superman: The Wedding Album ; Lois's father arrived late to the wedding, just before this line, but assured his wife he wouldn't interrupt the ceremony for the world.A Separate Peace tells the story of Gene's painful but necessary growth into adulthood, a journey of deepening understanding about his responsibility and his place in a wider world.
