(I'm going to apologize in advance for any spelling, capitalization, punctuation,or grammar errors I make. I'm on my phone and it's a pain in the behind to type on properly.)

Anyway, onward to the question! I'm trying to write an OT fic, and I'm torn between third person and first person. While I generally write in 3rd person, past tense, I believe some sections in this fic could call for first person, past tense, and I'm admittedly terrible at PoV transitions.

Would it seem self insert-y if I were to write the whole thing in first person? I know there may be problems with that and Mary Sue-ism to begin with, seeing as it's an OT fic, so I'm trying to cut down on any influences which might inhibit the reader's ability to enjoy it.

Thanks!
