Another week with not much to talk about in the 'caps. Sorry folks!

I've pretty much only been playing Animal Crossing and working all week. My house is coming along quite nicely in Animal Crossing. I finally got all the rooms built, and I just have to expand a few more of them before it's as big as possible. I think my favorite room is the upstairs bedroom, decorated with furniture from the Blue and Minimalist series along with some random Japanese things (dharmas, lucky cats), with a colorful Flower Pop wallpaper to make it stand out. I also have a room dedicated to the pirate theme furniture you get from Pascal (one of my favorite characters!) and a huge bathroom with multiple showers and toilets for some reason. I haven't quite figured out what to do with the other rooms yet, but they don't look too bad as they are now.

I don't know why I find decorating virtual homes to be so much fun, but somehow I never get tired of it in games. It's why I played The Sims so much growing up.

Anyway, that's really all I've got for this week. And it seems not too much was going on in the blogs today either. Buh...

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.
