Ought to be a really good one, Don. One thing has me curious and just hoping for clarification, though I think I know the answer.


Quoted from Don

"Someone no one would suspect". That's referring to characters in the script, not the readers, is that right? Like, you're not expecting a group of Keyser Sozes, right?

I was thinking the same thing.

Because if it is the reader, then after reading the requirements they will suspect the most unsuspecting of characters, which means I would then have to make the most suspectful character the bad guy... no one would suspect that, right?

I literally just had this conversation with my wife. There goes my big reveal: The bad guy IS the bad guy!

But, now that they know that I know that they know... I have to go back to making the good guy the bad guy.

Of course, now that I've said that I know that they know that I know... maybe the good guy is the bad guy, but he's really a good guy just looking like a bad guy because he's catering to his bad side which makes him a bad guy despite being a good guy but his good side overcomes his bad side which makes him a good guy, but he's done bad things which make him a bad guy.

Nobody will suspect that.

Except that I just wrote it all out... which means....

I wanted press on "quote" for this message but instead clicked on "report". but it didn't get reported I think, I didn't go all the way reporting you, Sean. Although it's hard to be sure what I'm doing at teh end of the day.

Funny, I agree with you on Paul being a villain. Look at him showcasing his three mugs! That's the villain we didn't think of as a villain

Yes, the characters in the script donít suspect, but if you can make it so the reader doesnít know until the end, then good in you.
