I rp’ed in yahoo chats when I was like 13 :/
I may or may not have drunkenly yelled, “Wolverines!” at my tv while I watch Red Dawn.
The “need” for a villain to be “sympathetic” and relatable is a total contrivance and the product of modern films all trying to be more “complex” than they actually are. Most of the great villains in the history of fiction are not the slightest bit sympathetic and or even likable. They’re interesting, and compelling, and a few of them conflicted. But the idea that their plans have to make sense and we’ve gotta hear how their dog died when they were six is a totally new and very arbitrary thing. Coherence is necessary. Sympathy is not.
