In my current story, the point of view (3rd limited) sometimes switches between the two main characters (like chapter one is from one characters PoV, chapter two is from the other). Character A is a commoner who uses contractions when he talks, so the narrative would have contractions when it is written from his PoV, right? While Character B is royalty who doesn't speak using contractions, so his narrative would be written without them. The problem is when Character B starts talking more informally later in the story. Would the way his scenes are written change to be similar to Character A (with contractions)? Or would it stay contraction-free just because that's how it had been written through most of the story already? Though the PoV switches through the story, about 80% of it will be from Character B's PoV. Or I can just say screw it, let them both talk using contractions, and just have Character B word things differently/continue acting like his royal self.
