When writing in 3rd person omniscient, is it best to use scare quotes to imply that the narrator is poking fun at a character? For example: S hid herself from view, leaning her back against the wall. Concealment—it was an old habit she’d not yet broken, even after years of therapy. As a child, locking herself in a closet had been the only way she could tune out the sounds of yelling parents and breaking plates. Huddled in the dark, choking on the scent of mothballs, she would wish for the power of Jesus, someone who could turn hate into love. Instead, the louder the screaming got, the deeper her fingers went in her ears and the more she burrowed behind her clothes. S was an adult now, though. She could finally be the “savior” she’d always fantasized about. I'm trying to show the reader why S has a deeply ingrained desire to resolve conflict while also conveying a sense that the narrator is making fun of her for being naive and having a savior complex, even though S would never talk about herself that way. Thoughts? Thanks!
