Most of my* work trends towards True Art Is Realistic, so all the time.

It happened just a few days ago: Allyson is out there, and she takes the 203 bus...

I changed accounts.
...this is a bit of a warning sign. Nobody thinks of himself as a villain, so if your villains are so alien that you can't imagine ever meeting anyone like them, then you should reconsider how realistic they are (or aren't).

Well, I am writing fantasy/science fiction/some combination of the two, but I didn't mean it in the sense that they all walk around with their supervillain union cards. This:

I think he just meant that as most of his characters are to some degree villainous, he wouldn't want to meet them. There's nothing in there about whether he considers it possible that he could meet someone like them.

Is mostly what I meant; as in, I just wouldn't want to meet a significant minority of my characters.

I mean, I can certainly imagine someone who is, personality-wise, similar to some of my characters without necessarily being evil at all. I do try to give them traits and goals and such outside "opposing the protagonists(/antagonists), " if that's what you meant.

I do have plenty of non-villain characters, of course. I, personally, however, don't have any real inclination to meet anyone like them. I think it would be odd, to think that there is in fact someone out there very close—if not exactly—like what I imagined.

I will keep it in mind, though. cool

I am now known as Flyboy.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
