The Cblog Fapcast Episode 11 - Strider alone

   0


So there I was, minding my own business, when I was hit by nothing! It was like I was hit by a nothing storm! And it happened to everyone else too! When the storm had passed, I decided that the only logical course of action would be to record a podcast. Unfortunately, everyone was still in the nothing storm and I wouldn't be able to get anyone on super short notice. So instead of waiting it out, I decided to go on ahead and record the podcast myself.

And that's how I saved Christmas in April.

Well, I did this by myself, and most people know how I don't listen to my own episodes. It's only common courtesy to assume the worst. Why would I listen to the worst thing ever since that's my first assumption. And since this is all me, it clearly must be super worst.



Strider decides to do it live since no one else was online (he checked though). Fortunately, the Fapcast isn't a 2 hour long one-man show. Remember the Write Stuff? It's like that.

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.
