Hi. I'd value opinions about a problem (?) with my fantasy WIP. I can't decide if I should put a plot twist in the resolution stage of my novel, or shunt that part of the story over to book 2 in the series.
Quick summary of my problem.
At the climax, my main (female) protagonist has saved the world (hurrah) but there are consequences, aka prices to be paid, for how she did it. 1. Her beloved godfather and his organisation of 'good guys' misinterpret her actions and turn against her, decreeing she and her two lovers/partners have turned evil and must die. 2. During the climax, she releases the soul of one of her lovers/partners from magical enslavement, only to discover she's become his new 'owner'. There will have to be a new dynamic between them and he will have to change significantly.
These two consequences could be combined e.g. the lover/partner relationship could be discovered and altered during the attempt to destroy the trio. To me, these feel like unexpected but important parts of the wrapping up stages of the novel, just before the final scene and the end.
There appear to be differing opinions about whether a plot twist should be inserted after the climax in the descending part of a story. Personally, I love to be surprised with an 'Oh, I didn't expect that!' scene after everything seems to have been resolved.
Anyone have any thoughts about this?
