There seem to be a lot of third person threads, but I didn't want to hijack someone else's with my specific question. Is it strange to have a story written in third person that closely follows the life of the main character, revealing her thoughts and actions (like limited third person) but very occasionally revealing crucial information to the reader that the MC doesn’t know and occasionally revealing thoughts of or information about another character when he is in her presence? The crucial information relates directly to the MC and what she is doing at that point in the story, and the thoughts of or information about the other character would also directly relate to her and what's happening in the story. Other than that, the story is about the MC, not about any other characters, so the story is never going to leave her and start telling what's happening in another character's life while she's not around. I know that anything can be done, but would something like this feel too weird or severely impact how close the reader feels to the MC? Does it all just depend on how I do it? The crucial information has to be included, but including the other character's thoughts is debatable. I don't want it to be too omniscient, if that makes any sense. If anyone has thoughts about this or just about the range of third person POV that falls between limited and omniscient, they'd be much appreciated!
