Discussion: Writing From the Dark Side

Maleficent

Today’s discussion topic comes from QSFer MK Mancos:

How about turning the genre on its ear and writing from the villain’s perspective? What kind of world would it be then?

I know a few of our QSF authors have done this, and we’ve seen it in pop culture – think Maleficent and Wicked.

So my questions today – what other villains are ripe for a rehabilitation? And on the LGBTQI side, how can we turn the old trope of the gay villain around?
