Evil Writer’s Award – Tagged

screen-shot-2017-04-20-at-10-00-47-pm

The Rules:

• Give all credit to the Evil Overlord and genius, Kate, for creating this award.

• Give a smaller amount of credit to the Evil Writer who tagged you (which means fall on your hands and knees and thank me for nominating you).

• Tag at least two people.

*Figure stands in the shadows of an old study. Dust particles float in the stuffy air, as flashes of car lights pass through the stained windows. A dog barks at a cat a block away. It is the dead of night.*

Welcome, to my lair. *the figure states. Her voice cracks* It appears I must step out of the shadows for a moment. *She moves into the light silently. She is dressed in black, from head-to-toe. A fire is lit in her blue eyes. A devious smile occupies her lips. She holds a pen which slowly drips out a red drop from the tip and rolls down the side of their finger and hand. She comes forward and kneels to the ground* Thanks, to the assassin, Cloaked Cookie, who has awarded me this honor. *She stands and sits in the only chair in the room and crosses her legs* Please, there is no need to be nervous. I suppose I could spare a minute of my time to answer these interesting questions. But no more, for I am very busy with my writing.

How many characters do you typically kill per book? And how many people have you killed in real life, dear? Do you… feel any remorse about this? I’m concerned about you.

Well, *searches ceiling* of my first book, there have been only two characters who I have had to sacrifice for the greater good, as it were. And there are two others who will join them in my next story, maybe more, maybe less. *Shrugs* Who knows? Only I do. *grins and snickers*

As for real people of this reality. I have killed none. And because I have not, I feel no remorse. Unless you count bugs, then yes, I do.

Do you prefer to use weapons of mass destruction like explosions and famine and world war or more personal torture like killing family and friends and pets?

Oh, definitely personal torture. Always kill the dog. They break every time. *voice becomes a whisper* Every time . . .

Are you more like Loki, who perpetrates great evil with a creepy grin, or… give me a minute… Darth Vader, who secretly weeps inside his… fake head, whilst destroying the world?

I suppose I would consider myself to be like Loki. He and I share a thing in common. Our grins are creepy indeed *grins creepily*

What is the most dastardly crime you have ever committed as a writer?

Hmm *strokes chin* I have taken a character out of existence, I have put my characters through their version of hell, I have taken away people they care for, *leans back* the list goes on.

What kind of chocolate do you most like to devour as you burn things? White, milk, semisweet, or dark? Bonus points if you are so evil you find unsweetened cacao palatable!

Hmm. Milk chocolate. Always milk. Dark is far too bitter unless there is a bit of mint involved. And I cannot stand white chocolate. And who would be so evil as to devour semisweet chocolate? *grimaces*

What is your villainous title? You may not have “Evil Overlord” because that one’s mine.

Apparently, the Cloaked Cookie is already taken as well. Some call me Bucky McBoing Boing, others, not sure who, have often called me The Cutter, for if characters don’t behavior, then it’s *slashes pen out* cuttin’ time! *laughs to self*

Which of your characters would actually be a match for you if you were to duke it out one on one?

I suppose I would choose my main character, Alaine Turner, for I have undoubtedly made her so much like me, that sometimes I forget who is who. But of course, I would beat her, for *holds up pen which slowly drips out red* the pen is mightier than the sword. And I hold her existence in my delicate fingers.

Which character, in all the many books you have undoubtedly written, is most likely to be your Archnemesis?

Hmmm . . . apparently, I have written many, many books. *frowns* But which one shall I choose? *She twirls a strand of brown hair around her finger* Arkhill, I suppose. I don’t like him personally, and the more I learn of him, the more I hate him. We wouldn’t get along particularly well.

Do you wear a cape? Face paint? A mask? Special underpants? Or do you hide in plain sight… like Moriarty? Give me details!’

Haha, as if I would give you details! That would blow my cover completely! But I will say, that if you ever see a figure in black, you might want to take a different path.

How do you react when you have to kill off a character that is dear to you? Do you laugh evilly out loud? Do you chuckle under your breath and quickly glance around for your next victim? Do you go and weep in a corner for a month because you just lost a best friend? Or do you just shrug indifferently?

Honestly, I weep. It is hard to lose a character who has fought so gallantly, and who has lived for so long. *She stares out the stained window* I miss them terribly and sometimes think of ideas to bring them back but never go through with them. They are my children and I hold them dear to my heart.

If you had to choose a fictional villain (from book, movies, etc.) to sum up your villainous style as an evil writer, who would it be? Why?

I don’t like to compare myself to other villains, for I am unique in my own way and don’t prefer competition.

*She elegantly rises from her chair* Now, you must leave. For as I have said, I am very busy, and one of my characters have been behaving very badly of late. *Whips around* You may show yourself out. And if you reveal my location to anyone *she walks back into the shadows* well, I’m sure you can imagine what would happen. *A drop of red ink flies out of the shadows and splats onto the wood floor. As you leave, a piece of paper slides to the floor. You pick it up. It reads*

Nominees

Lucy from Tangle Webs and Fairy Rings

Kit from Come, Rest a While

And anyone else who wishes to answer these villainous questions may do so

  1. Eep! This was creepy! *hides under covers* *gradually peeks out* But enjoyable, at the same time. I find it very interesting that you dislike Arkhill so much…it makes me really wonder what he’s going to do in future chapters…

    Thanks for the tag! This is going to be so much fun! (Oh dear. That didn’t sound evil at all. Or else…it sounded really evil because who thinks being evil is fun except for a dastardly villain indeed?)

    1. It’s not necessarily what he’s going to do, it’s more about what he’s done and the more I learn about his past which will be revealed at some point:)
