I remember in English class, there were special formatting rules for if a character talks for more than four lines. I think my school hated fiction. Also, I think the teachers were still caught in the phase of word-processing and not being able to change font sizes. There is the obvious questions about modernizing the rules, or if they apply to fiction. If fiction should have monologues. I'm also fanficcing for a game where many of the voice-actor outtakes are jokes about monologues.
