“And what’s he then that says I play the villain?” ~Shakespeare
We readers know you can’t have good without evil, and thus all our tales end up with a hero and a villain…until they don’t. Are there any stories you’ve read where there was not such a clear distinction between hero and villain? For me, the best protagonists make us admit that we all have a bit of both, though we hope to pursue the good.
My favorite recent addition to the world of villainy is Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin from Once Upon a Time. And to explain without spoilers, there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to this beastly trickster. He has some nasty habits and selfish tendencies, but he always has love for his son.
