I'm currently outlining a YA dystopian/science fiction novel, with two alternating POV's, but I realized I don't really have a solid climax--which I've always known as a turning point for the characters and usually the most dramatic part of the story.
Some background: I plan for Character A and Character B--the two POV's--to become lovers at some point in the story/series. They are brought together after B saves A's sister, and then ally with a group of supporting characters in a plan to save people who were taken away by the government as part of a "corrupted plan," lets call it, they don't know about. My "climax" was originally going to be when this corrupted plan is revealed by the president of this dystopian society. This causes the main characters to connect the dots from what they've seen in the past and now they find themselves needing to stop this plan.
I was thinking the climax should have something to do with Characters A and B. But their romance is more of subplot, not really affecting the main plot much. The main part of the plot would be stopping the "corrupted plan." Stopping the plan and everything that goes with it is basically the whole premise of the story, but its reveal doesn't really seem like a turning point for my characters.
Is there a way I could keep that climax (the reveal) and have a separate climax for A and B? Or combine them? Or just figure out a whole new climax? I hope this is clear.
(By the way, I don't plan for this novel to be a standalone)
