I'm still fleshing out the ideas, and I'm not sure how this group will be threatening, or conceived as threatening by Jack. These people can still be dangerous in some way, but they just happened to...

Ugh I really need to start writing. I'm going to make this a short for the time being.

Dialogue Heavy Romantic Drama Idea

Subject matter aside, English doesn't seem to be your strong suit...so I'd say no, do not write this in English.

Besides that, even the most insensitive or controversial stuff can be handled well.

Yup, you should give some info regarding your character. I've written a bunch of stuff where the main character isn't a traditional good dude who you'd want to route for.

Don't go for likable, go for relatable. See movies like Nightcrawler if you want a recent movie where the main character is a "bad" guy.
