#SixforSunday is a weekly meme hosted by A Little But A Lot. This week’s theme is, ‘baddies who deserve their own story’.
The funny thing about villains is that everyone tends to hate them but at the same time they are very intriguing and I always find myself wondering what happened to them to make them the way they are.
So here are some baddies I think deserve their own story:
(1) The Darkling from The Grishaverse by Leigh Bardugo:
According to the books he is supposedly hundreds of years old so I suppose he’s been on lots of adventures and done lots of terrible things. I think he’d have some very interesting but probably terrifying stories to tell.
(2) Arobynn Hamel from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas:
We never find out much about Arobynn like how and why he became an assassin, what he had to do to become the King of Assassins and why he decided to take in Celaena. I think he deserves his own background story because he’s so horrible and we never know why.
(3) Smaug from The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein:
Smaug is the gold-hoarding dragon from The Hobbit and I think a story about him would be fascinating for the same reason I think a story about the Darkling would be fascinating. He’s been alive for hundreds of years and has seen so many things that lots of weird and wonderful things must have happened to him.
(4) Legend from Caraval:
He is such a mysterious figure it would be cool to have a story from his perspective and find out what motivates his actions.
Which baddies do you think deserve their own story? Let me know in the comments!
