This Week's Topic:
Who are your favorite literary villains/antagonists, and why?
This one got me thinking... in a my head hurts kind of way. I discovered I am rather... um... judgemental with my villains. If they are bad then i dislike them. And that works for, say, Harry Potter where Voldemort is pretty straight evil. But then I thought further and thought of Snape. He's a villain for much of the books but that twists and turns.... and makes him appealing. So i think he'd not only rank as a fave but a prototype.
A villain i like needs to be well motivated and can do 'bad' things as long as they're ultimately.... good.
Note: I am much less picky in movies or TV... them bad boys often look so fine!
What about you? Any fave villains? Does it matter if you can see their hotness?
