Hey all. So in my story, I'm trying to write an MC who has had some trauma in the past, specifically, his brother was killed by a monster and he witnessed it. Nobody believed him, and he was suspect in the murder, but the parents know (Given their family history as monster hunters) that a monster did it. Is there any way that he could revert to not believing in monsters? My current idea is that the parents move the kid to another state to protect him and he has effectively gotten over it by turning to watching laughable monster b-movies, Kaiju, and Goosebump's-like horror flicks. He watches those shows to make monsters seem more fake. Is this realistic? Should he always be afraid of monsters now? Is it possible he could blot out that memory in trauma? Or maybe, he watches scary movies to seek out ways to protect himself (I.e. don't fall for rule # 56, don't go looking for the monster in your undies, or something like that). Does that sound more realistic? I want him to know the rules of what not to do in horror flicks as part of his ways of handling monsters later on. Any advice would help me think through this, thanks!
