    I think it's total attitude that I'm not sure of. I keep going from dark to light, not really sure. I think I may be Mary Sue-ing one of my MCs too much. I am kind of stuck on her personality, I think.

    What keeps changing my mind is wanting to be dark & realistic, v. also wanting to sort of tell a fairy tale.

    I think I may have hit on a compromise where I can keep the darker scene. One can actually flow into the other. I don't know why I didn't consider that they could both stay and both show different aspects of my characters. Maybe I'm actually not being dimensional enough. Nobody has just one across-the-board personality. We all have quirks. I think this MC could be both dark and light at times without changing the basic idea of the story.
