Right now, I'm having quite a problem with turning one of my main characters to the Dark Side. I've been doing just about everything I can think of; demonic visions, torture, betrayal, and planting the seeds confusion and doubt. But they just WON'T TURN! And what's worse, by the end of the story, they need to be redeemed! I'm afraid that after I actually do turn her to the Dark Side, I won't be able to bring her back without seeming like a poor writer. Has anyone else had a problem like this? How do you turn characters? is it hard work, or is it a breeze for you? Or do you have your characters stick with the side they're on and don't bother with that kinda stuff? Personally, I think temptation is a very intriguing theme, and thus may have extended my reach farther than my grasp with this one. But I'd also like to hear from the other writers and see what their views are on the topic.
