This was a pretty crazy weekend for me. One of my best friends, who is also the Maid of Honor in my upcoming wedding, spent the most of the weekend in the hospital after getting knocked off her horse. She had major head trauma and the doctors weren't sure when or if she was going to wake up. My fianc and I spent most of Friday in the hospital with her parents, hoping and waiting for her to wake up. Luckily she did eventually come to, but she couldn't remember the last 16 hours of her life, including all the crazy stuff she did during those hours. She is going to be ok though, and we are all really grateful for that.

I spent the rest of the weekend drinking, thanks to a beer festival I went to. I also started tanning for my upcoming wedding in the US Virgin Islands. The tanning girl put me in the tanning bed for too long though, and now I'm pretty badly burnt. I'm in a great deal of pain, but I'll live. I'd rather burn now, then get sun burn the day before my wedding.

Speaking of .... there's only 2 weeks left till I get married. CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I’ve become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they’re being such a butthole.

What’s far more interesting to me is when a villain’s motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he’s easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I’ve ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won’t delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it’s that good.

But hey, that’s just how I feel. I’m sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I’ll deal with that should the time come. I’m sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month’s Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
