Writing Prompt – Villain’s Love

Writing Prompt

One of the first questions that comes to mind is wondering what exactly is the villains goal. Obviously using the love interest against the hero is not uncommon, but what is the villain trying to accomplish. It’s left open to the writer, but I am curious as to what it is in the mind of the person who created the prompt.

Something thing that caught my attention about this one is that the main character is neither the hero nor the villain. They are the love interest. Can you imagine if the superhero stories we know and love were told exclusively from the point of view of the love interest. How would that change them?

Writer's Prompt

What does it take to fall in love with the villain? If the main character is in love with the villain or at least starting to fall in love, then it seems unlikely that the villain is just called that because they are the antagonist. Of course kidnapping someone is never okay, but we are back to my first question, what is the villain’s goal? And that brings another question. Does the main character sympathize with that goal? Or do they love the villain despite it? Also, what does the hero think of all this? Do they notice their love interest growing further away.

I think this could be an interesting story. What kind of goal do you think the villain should have?
