"The villains were always ugly in books and movies. Neccesarily so, it seemed. Because if they were attractive-if their looks matched their charm and their cunning-they wouldn't only be dangerous. They would be irresistible."

Vłℒℒαη❍ ☨†♰♱

"A villain must be a thing of power, handled with delicacy and grace. He must be wicked enough to excite our aversion, strong enough to arouse our fear, human enough to awaken some transient gleam of sympathy. We must triumph in his downfall, yet not barbarously nor with contempt, and the close of his career must be in harmony with all its previous development."

-Agnes Repplier
