I’ve got MC 1 “Playing a Role” and IC 1 “Understanding.”
The story starts in a family whose youngest child has died. The eldest son is trying to fill the gap and repair the damage in the family after this tragedy.
MC 1 “Playing a Role” focuses on the eldest child throwing away the full ride scholarship to University they were awarded so that they can stay home and care for their dad who has been wrecked by depression. The mother is not available.
The eldest child does this by going joyriding in their teacher’s car knowing that the University would rescind the scholarship in response. This way, they can avoid endless arguments with family about whether to take the scholarship and they can avoid directly addressing their own survivor’s remorse.
IC 1 “Understanding” is currently labelled “An exploration of family, both as a thing which gives identity and a thing which takes that identity away, also the thing which gives initial context to all knowledge every gained.”
I think I’m confusing MC and IC a bit. They don’t seem to distinctly establish “I” vs. “you.” Am I wrong? If not, any suggestions to fix it?
