Alrighty, question time from Complex again. I've finally found a starting point for my novel, leaving plenty of gap before I connect to the first major plot point, so that I can fill in a few bits of free space for character development and addressing a matter with the initial rallying of the scattered characters. Another weird problem has presented itself in the process of fixing these loose ends. Problem is as follows: Main character A is followed by the story with third person omniscient narrator that corresponds to character's views and thoughts. Main character B is followed by the story with third person omniscient narrator that corresponds to character's views and thoughts. Both characters have differing views of the situation, yet I want each character to retain their own view of the situation. Character A sees thing this way, Character B sees it another way. It is literally the same events happening, but the difference is in the perception of the characters. Spoken dialogue matches for both, but the character's individual impressions lead to drastically different views of the situation. I really don't want to combine the two story lines as one for this sole chapter. Though I do not know if having the same events repeated with a different spin is really a valid option. FYI. I've got more then one of these occurring in the novel, the worst one has six main characters (followed separately up to this intersection) in a climatic showdown of wills, wits and devious execution of a Xanatos gambit to ensure the antagonists victory. It boiled down into simply 'telling' because 'showing' was out of the question and it read like one of those annoying soccer announcers screaming wildly at the players as they move around the field. Then yelling, "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAL!" for a span of thirty seconds at the climax of the scene, droning on long after everyone stopped cheering. I'm stumped.
