    How would a character react to giving birth and keeping a baby of incest

    Discussion in 'Character Development' started by mom42terrificgirls, Sep 8, 2014.

    The man is both father and grandfather to child. What are some situations, conflicted feelings that could come up in the future, especially when she and the baby will still be in contact with the father? I apologize if this should go under plot or research threads. Thanks.

    This is immensely "it depends." Just the fact that she's keeping the baby is already something that requires a tremendous amount of background and character information. Why did she decide that? Was it voluntary?

    My next thought is to wonder why she and the baby would still be in contact with the father--is it because she can't escape, or is it a choice on her part?

    I agree with @ChickenFreak
    There are too many ifs and buts and history to consider before that kind of question can be answered.
