I need some reaction help. I've written a scene, but I'm not convinced the reaction of one of my characters was exactly natural. How would you react if someone you deeply loved (lover, family member, or friend, doesn't matter) confessed that they had killed another person? If you need more information than that to formulate your honest reaction, here is a bit more: -It was not an accident. It was deliberate murder. -If you question this person, they will simply tell you they were coerced, though they will not try to use that as an excuse. They will admit to being a coward. -They are tormented with guilt about what they've done. -They are not seeking your forgiveness, you did not know the person they killed and had nothing to do with it. -This person that you love has made some tremendously poor choices recently, and you knew they were getting into trouble, but you never expected it to go so far.
