This week’s topic could be read in 2 different ways. While what makes a “good” villain could imply the villain is actually “good” and not a bad person – it could also mean (which I believe today’s topic for all intents and purposes does imply) what makes a really, really, bad villain.
Okay; I’ll admit I’ve been thinking too hard on this, which is something I do regularly.
From my view-point (which would be romantically speaking) I suppose anyone who is truly detrimental to a couple’s success in their relationship is a good villain. It could be anywhere from the far fantasy side, such as the evil medieval wizard in my CONNECTIONS series, to something from the “normal” world, such as the disapproval of a meddling parent.
If you would ask – I have no favorite villains, or maybe they are all “favorite” villains because it all depends on the story I’m immersed in at the time.
