Do Evil Characters Think of Themselves as Evil?

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned Jonathan Coulton on this blog before or not but I know I haven’t posted about this song in particular. “Skullcrusher Mountain” is just one of JoCo’s hilariously brilliant persona songs. This one happens to be from the point of view of an evil genius bent on world domination singing to someone he has captured and fallen in love with. If you’re anything like me by the end of the song you’re thinking “Gosh I hope those two work it out.” Inspired by JoCo’s evil genius anthem, write a scene where it is clear that your villain doesn’t see what he’s doing as evil. Get into the character’s head and find his motivation.
