I'm a terrible person

It's amazing how the whole tone of a scene can change...

Just by changing one character's attitude. The dialogue is almost exactly the same, and the one character is still really pissed off, but now the other character clearly does not like what he did and feels bad about it, rather than being almost cavalier like he was when I originally wrote this.

It makes the other character much more sympathetic, and drives the action going forward much better.

My Writing Buddy is a genius.
