This past week-end I posted a blog (on Castles & Guns) about villains and a problem I had with them "turning into good guys".
Guess what I started re-watching last night> Tin Man (if you've never seen it, it is a weird, but well done Wizard of Oz ;)). And I was reminded that I loved the ending...where the big bad becomes good.
BUT- in this case, she wasn't really herself, but rather the victim of an evil witch...so in a way, the character was never bad. Hmmm- that makes sense? Or am I just confused about how I like my villains?
How do YOU like your villains?
Thanks for coming by!
I think villains are important, but it's not bad if they change. As long as it makes sense, if that makes sense.
Nice blog on castles and guns :)
Thanks for coming by Nancy- and thank you for your comments about the blog (which I didn't link to I now realize, glad you found it anyway!)ReplyDelete
See, for me I thought I had a certain mindset about villains- no changies! But now I'm realizing I don't always feel that way. Which makes me wonder if I just didn't like the way THAT on author handled it?
ANYWAY- thank you for coming by and commenting and for folks who want to link to the original blog http://www.castlesandguns.com/2012/05/how-do-you-like-your-villains.html
