What other option could be paid to do this.
If there is no Drama, but the cir­cum­stance is great, could we have another option?

My rea­son being, that Drama is a valu­able com­mod­ity and seems to be fairly rare at my table.
But nei­ther do I want to make it ‘story impos­si­ble’, for a player to influ­ence to flow of events.
Maybe a Com­pli­ca­tion for later.

Well, Steal­ing the Lime­light can be very pow­er­ful. It can res­cue a buddy from near-​certain death or can beat a buddy to some great accom­plish­ment. The default is there­fore that it isn’t cheap.

If you and your group would make it eas­ier, you are of course free to house­rule. I would sug­gest that both involved par­ties must agree if Drama is not to be paid, so that the “cheaper” ver­sion can­not be used to lit­er­ally steal a pal’s lime­light, just to aid him. And I quite like your idea of a Com­pli­ca­tion, but I would go one steeper and sug­gest that both involved par­ties need to take a Com­pli­ca­tion if Drama is not to be paid.

I crown me with the million-​colored sun
Of secret worlds incred­i­ble, and take
Their trail­ing skies for vest­ment when I soar.
