Antagonist love...

I am rather falling in love with my antagonist. Yes, I realize this is a bad thing as she is a murderer and therefore supposed to be unlikable. But it all started when I found an AWESOME picture of her, looking just like I pictured her and then from here, she blossomed. At first, she was all bad...if she were a man she would have had a long black twirly sort of mustache, but then she started explaining her reasons for the murder to me. She was going to get fired for something that was only sort of her fault and if she got fired, she'd be evicted, and if she was evicted she'd lose custody of her son.

And the poor girl was abused as a child and she's a little bold and outspoken which can get her into trouble and I kind of just feel sorry for her. I almost like her better than my protagonist, who is sweet and is going to get herself some gumption by the end of the book (finally!) but in the mean time she's kind of boring. Alright, what's a girl to do? How do I make my protagonist more likable than my antagonist. I'm worried if I feel this way, everyone else will too.

Anyway, I'm including my picture of her. Her name is Veronica "Ronnie" Bennett. Gotta love it.

  1. That pic reminds me of another antagonist...

    I'm one of those weirdos who loved Bela from Supernatural - apparently most people hated her, but I wished she could have stayed in the series for longer! :)
