Hm. Let’s talk about Villains and Reality vs Fiction.
Art often reflects a version of reality,
but like a fun house mirror
we understand the truth.
Children understand early on that they will never be a mermaid or a princess. That’s why when you ask a child what they want to be when they grow up, they’ll say “DOCTOR!” or “SINGER” or FIREFIGHTER!” If they ever do say “I want to be Darth Vader!” We can all safety assume this child isn’t actually planning on growing up to slice off his son’s hand and rule a galaxy. The kid knows they can’t actually be Darth Vader, but they admire Vader’s cool looks, his authority, the awesome one-liners. A child knows. Children are not stupid. Now, as adults (I hope) we also see the difference between reality and fiction… you know, like we see the difference in good and bad? We can imagine crazy things and insane dramas and read and write about whatever we’d like, but once the book is closed and the movie is turned off people know what they know and do what they do and LIVE their lives with that underlying common law of what is Good. Once in a while, you will have that disturbed mind that will take something like The Joker and misuse him as an excuse to do heinous things, but people are generally good.
So we are allowed to enjoy a story like Jane Eyre, like Suicide Squad, like Star Wars. We are allowed to enjoy the ups, downs, horrors and triumphs of characters like Kylo Ren. We can think Kilgrave from Jessica Jones is charismatic and fun to watch. We can completely adore Loki from Thor.
THESE THINGS ARE OK
Because the line between fiction and reality is a lot thicker than some people on tumblr are making it out to be.
Admirable! You’re doing wonderfully! Mister, knock it off!
No! Shut your trap! I never did that folks! Haha! Shut your mouth Mister, I’ll fire you and blackmail you, and then you won’t be able to get another job, and you’ll be out on the streets begging for scraps.
