I've been working on this re-write, and interestingly this particular side character keeps saying and doing things that are unlike what I had written for her before. She used to be very kind and empathetic, but now she has little patience for things. Every time her dialogue comes up, it surprises me the way she says things, but this new persona is very distinct and very congruent. I like it, but I'm baffled by it. Anyone else with similar strange happenings with their characters?
