Say you're reading something, and it starts out in third-person, but limited to one person's POV. You hear only their thoughts, feelings, and observations as they move through the landscape of the story. Essentially, it is a first-person story told with third-person pronouns. Given this, would it bother you to have a couple of scenes in the middle that are from another person's POV? Would it jar you out of the story?
Assuming I ever finish the piece for which I'm asking this question (shockingly, it's looking almost likely at this point), any issues will probably be hammered out in beta, but I just thought I'd do a general poll. At the moment, I've got six scenes on this fic, and the fourth one is from the other character's POV. I of course like all the scenes I've written so far, and I don't want to change them. I'm kind of thinking that the POV change might work thematically, because the characters are going from one character's world to the other's, and eventually the first character adapts, mostly, to that world. So we start off with Character A's world and POV, move to Character B's, and then return to Character A's, which has changed fairly dramatically over the course of the story.
(Okay, if you haven't figured it out by now, given my non-stop recent chatter and the icon I'm using, Character A is Thatcher, Character B is Fraser, and they're out in the Yukon for reasons that are too complicated to explain right at the moment.)
Bah, LJ code. Ignore that blank last option. Unless of course your thoughts really can be summarized with a hyphen.
