Ah, here we go. This comes up in most adventure fics and nearly all stories in general. The Rival/Antagonist. These guys are always better bad. But how do you indulge in that character? Its quite simple. Be the you that you cant be in public and put that into said bad guy.
Its my favorite part of the story. When these stupidly stupid characters come on the scene. They relate to most people...actually...all of us during a bad day. Think about that little thing or statement or opininion that made you mad. That idiot lives it. Im not bashing good rivals like B/W2 (I just didnt like him...) but that bad guy makes the story enjoyable. Especially when we see a little piece in ourselves. I find it funny. Some find it sad. I just wanted to throw up the discussion.
