the problem with godot is that i don’t think he was necessarily intentionally written as a misogynist– the writers just. uncritically think he’s cool lmao. like they didn’t go in and look at his character and think “him being shitty to woman is an intentionally character flaw” they just wrote him and it happened on its own probably because the writers themselves are Like That.
Hey, don't know if this has been asked before, but I wanted to hear your thoughts on this subject. How do you handle writing a protagonist that is purposely a horrible/annoying person? There is a character arc in which the protagonist grows and starts to recognize his/her flaws and change...but I'm curious about how to keep the reader hooked in the beginning when you're essentially stuck inside the head of a bitch/bastard?
