Villains You Can't Help but Love
SPOILER WARNING: For the Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Mortal Instruments, and Divergent series.
1.) Luke Castellan (Percy Jackson and the Olympians)
I don't know about you, but I totally started bawling when he died at the end of The Last Olympian. Why, Luke, why did you have to die? You redeemed yourself. Great. Fantastic. I loved that. But then you had to go and just die on us because of it!
2.) Voldemort (Harry Potter)
I know, I know. He's a mass wizarding murder who splits his soul, causes the death of our favorite characters, and eats puppies for breakfast. But come on--he started out as just a poor little orphan kid. Maybe if he'd just had a set of good family members to mold him, he'd be a teacher or a wizard lawyer or whatever. It can't be all his fault that he's evil! And anyways, he's just so awesome. Name one other villain as dastardly and awesome as him. Go on. Try.
3.) Snidely Whiplash ("Dudley Do-Right")
If you haven't seen "Dudley Do-Right," or "Rocky and Bullwinkle," I feel incredibly sorry for you. Sure, the show is a little cheesy at times, but come on. It's better than a lot of this newer stuff on TV.
4.) Raphael Santiago (The Mortal Instruments)
While he isn't techincly a villian, and isn't techinicly evil, he's deffinitly not the nicest guy on the Fictionary Literature Playground. He's a totally wicked vampire dude who, while still not a great person, still visits his family each week. How sweet is that?
5.) Al (Divergent)
We all pitied him. We all kind of liked him.We all were fooled by him. And admit it. We all cried a little for him.
5 1/2.) Peter, too. He's a horrible person, but you can't help but kind of like him anyway.
6.) J.K. Rowling
HOW DARE YOU KILL AND TORTURE OUR FAVORITE CHARACTERS! CEDRIC, SIRIUS, LUPIN, TONKS, DOBBY?!?!?!? HOW. DARE. YOU.
7.) And nearly all the other Young Adult authors...
STOP FEASTING ON OUR TEARS, YOU MONSTERS!!!
There you have it! I know I'm missing a bunch, but that's all I have time for today. Until then, stay geeky!
A Note on the Hamsters: I'm still trying to figure out how to get the thing off of the site (and figure out how it got there in the first place) but until then, feel free to play with it and stuff. It's actually kind of neat.
