It is June, and time for A Drift of Quills to offer you a joint post. This month, each of us is sharing with you, five of our favorite antagonists. (Don't forget to follow the links for more...)
P.S. Broaddus, author of A Hero's Curse, begins.
Mine is a list of truly evil baddies, fantastic villains, complex antagonists, and a lovable toad. In the style of FilmFisher's "Undefended" articles, I'm putting these forward with only minimal comment.
Thank you, Parker!
Next up is Robin Lythgoe, author of As the Crow Flies.
Oh, dear, so many villains, so few spaces in the list ...! Granted, antagonists are not always villains, per se, but someone or something manifesting opposite actions, thoughts, or motives than the protagonist. Still, I've chosen to lean towards the villainous in my list.
Great list, Robin! Now, it's my turn.
Since the antagonist in a story is frequently a villain, the first antagonist/villain that comes to my mind is ... Now, don't laugh. It's Cruella deVil.There are good reasons for this. Well, good reasons to me, anyway. You see ...
Who are your favorite antagonists? Do share!
