This is probably one of the weirdest bookish confessions that you’ll come across the net. But then, I am different.
Understatement of the year.
Okay, here we go…
I love the villains in books almost as much as the butt-kicking hero/heroine. I despise them, but in a way I love them too.
Talk about unhealthy obsessions.
In fact, nothing pleases me than a good dose of evil. World dominating power hungry maniac with unhealthy obsessions, bring it on…
A well written book has an amazing protagonist, but it also has an amazing VILLAIN! Come on, who doesn’t love the evil guys at some point. I’ve been working on my dystopian book lately, when I noticed that I had a LOT of fun writing the villainy bits.
When he’s about to kill my protagonist. When he waggles his villainy evil fingers. When he finds out that he needs his evil laugh as well to be a complete evil guy (kidding) .It was almost as much fun as when Wren escaped.
That’s right! Along with hoping Aang and the others got away, I partly WANTED Azula to catch Aang in Avatar. I imitated her and admired her. I LIKED Voilante, even when she was villain, before she turned good (though I think that one is a little more understandable). And yes *gasps in horror*
I liked Bellatrix Lestrange. She was one of my favourite villains.
I hated Bellatrix for killing Sirius, don’t get me wrong. Sirius was one of my most favourite characters in the series; he bought Harry the Firebolt, he saved his life a couple of times, he was so much fun, and most of all he genuinely cared for Harry *hint Dursleys hint*
But I still did, in a weird sort of way. Though I’m going to inform you that this soon ended when she murdered Dobby. Nope, I couldn’t take it any more. That’s when childish hate turned into despising. (Oops, I suppose that was a spoiler. Sorry. But I think most of the audience reading this have read HP anyway 🙂 )
And my dear sister and I spent hours practicing our hem hems. United behind our hate of Umbridge. 😀 *sighs happily*
Okay, I’m wandering outside the point. What I mean to say is, that villains are quite an important part of a story. They build your story quite as much as the main character does. You have to make them so loathable (Not a word. Don’t even try and Google it) that in the end people are forced to copy their trademark act united behind their hate of that guy
or gal the most evil of villains are sometimes the females too. Evilness.Tee hee…
And there’s the end of a fun giphy bookish discussion for y’all!
What do you think? Are villains an important part of the book to you? Do any of you sometimes love the villains?
Your villain truly,
