Announcement


Castle Villainy is the home to villains, rogues, evil kings and queens, and any other baddies you can think of in fiction (be it books, film or tv); along with the people who admire, love, adore, and worship these evil characters.

I for one, have always loved the bad/evil/rogue characters in most books & films & tv shows I've come across. I almost always *secretly* want the baddies to win. So I've created a place for all those who secretly, or not so secretly, feel the same way to come together and discuss the baddies that they admire/love/worship/adore.

This place is not just for squealing over how hot the actor/actress who plays the villain is. I also want to discuss some more serious aspects of why you love the evil characters. For me, most times it is because the evil ones in the story are the only ones with any real depth to their characters. The heroes are too often one dimentional and somewhat flat.

So if you love villains of all shapes and sizes, then please join and enjoy this community.

Mwah!
