Ideal Villain Plot
I'm not simply asking for improvements to old plots; I'm looking for what is ideal for the plot overall.
Seeing that I personally dislike the lack of villain-hero interactions outside of "We're freaking evil, twerps!" "We're going to stop you!" I'm all for refreshing interactions. Not having the heroes and villains constantly screaming, growling, or grunting at each other would be a nice change.
"Everyone creates the thing they dread. Men of peace create engines of war. Invaders create Avengers. People create... smaller people? Er... children! I lost the word there. Children. Designed to supplant them. To help them end."
But this is the traditional royal Canterlot voice! It is tradition to speak, using the Royal "we", and to use THIS MUCH VOLUME WHEN ADDRESSING OUR SUBJECTS!!
