Interview A Villain

Happy Thursday All,

Tuesday I talked about spending time with your favorite heroes and heroines, in keeping with the theme of spending time with favorite novel characters, I thought we'd shake things up and go with villains.

Villains come in all shapes and sizes. From not completely evil to downright scary.

Some of them have short attention spans, like Idris, in Shanna Swendson's fantasy series (starts with Enchanted, Inc.). Idris is trying shady things with magic that are frowned upon. He'd be a bigger threat if his attention span wasn't so short...which means when people who concentrate longer than 5 minutes join up with him he becomes a formidable foe. I think I could handle meeting Idris...as long as he was by himself.

I wouldn't want to be caught in a dark alley facing some of the monsters found in YA author, Tera Lynn Childs' Sweet Venom.

Ever get the shivers over the One Ring in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings? The people who rally behind Sauron and the ring are rather ghoulish! (I REALLY would NOT want to meet them or see the ring...just saying...too scary for me).

In Lesley Livingston's Wondrous Strange trilogy you're never quite sure if the fae kings and queens are truly good or truly evil. They are such shades of gray, that you're not sure if you can trust them, or if you're better off remaining wary.

However, you ever wondered what it would be like if you could sit down and ask them why? Was it only world domination? Power? Wealth? Boredom?

Or perhaps the villain/villainess you thought was most well written is too scary to even say hi to them.

Either way...what villain/villainess would you want to sit down and talk with if you could?

Have A Thrilling Thursday!

I like nice people, Bethany...that's why I hang out here with you!
Seriously, villians? I am not the 'bad-boys-ya-gotta-love-'em type, but I have to say,I have a THING for Mr.Gold, aka Rumpelstiltskin, in Once Upon A Time.
Very unique question! Thanks.

I hear you! Most villains are too scary for me, too.

Thank you for dropping by :-)

Bethany said...


Aw, you're too sweet--THANKS!

Yeah, I like Rumpelstilskin/Mr. Gold, too. Although given that it looks like he might be in cahoots with Regina, I'm starting to not like him so much again--but I really liked seeing that "sympathetic" side of him in that one episode, "SKIN DEEP" with Belle!

Thank you for dropping by :-)
