A Quickie About The Big Bads

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!


  1. Hi,

    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 :)


  2. 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!)

    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

    Sorry, posting from work, can't get on blogger at lunch :(
