Soooo yeah. It didn’t go well today. I was finally caught up… and this happened.
The problem is I DON’T HAVE A SOLID MOTIVE FOR ANY OF THE KILLERS SO I CAN’T PICK A KILLER AND I NEED A KILLER TO BE PICKED!!!
I have several ways that someone could do it, but I need a solid motivation and I cannot pick one. Going in, my motivation was that one person hated another one and this was a good opportunity to kill them, but I’ve been told that’s a little heavy handed and I agree (the motive was sexism, and there’s enough talk about sexism in the science field to make that seem a little political and pretty obvious).
My other options are all weak motives.
I’m sort of leaning towards “One of them is sick of the other taking credit for their work so they decide to off the other one but someone catches them in planning and they have to kill that person and now it’s spiraled out of control”. It’s a simple motive. Nothing to convoluted.
All my other options I’ve pretty much dismissed for being to convoluted. I don’t want as shitty of a bad guy as the villain in the last Captain America movie, that’s for sure.
What do you guys think? Does “Sick of doing all the work and sharing the credit so I planned to kill my partner but oh shit, someone else caught my planning and I panicked and killed them so now I’ve fucked up and I may have to kill other people to cover my tracks” sound reasonable?
