Male character: oh no, female character is in trouble and can't fight off this animal! -runs to her-
Writer: save her!! she's needed in the rest of the story.
Male character: okay how do I do that?
Writer: um... a weapon!
Character: we just came from the training arena and all the weapons were left there
Writer: the pocket knife in your pocket
Character: YOU HAD OUR BAGS TAKEN FROM US. I DON'T HAVE A KNIFE.
Writer: ...ohhhhh... I did do that, didn't I...
Character: how am I supposed to save her????
Writer: I have no clue. I've also written you to be clumsy and weak because you're out of your element and insecure... I don't think you have the physical strength to fight the animal off. This is a conflict.
