Different type of heroes

The older I get, the more I enjoy stories without that fairy tale ending. Instead, they’re more realistic.

The hero becomes damaged by what they had to do. There’s no simple life anymore. Everything has changed. Even if the overall is better, there’s no perfect way to save everything.

We ask this question all the time though.

“How do you destroy a monster without becoming one?”


“You either die a hero or live to become the villain.”

There’s something familiar and natural about these types of characters. They’re relatable. And great.

  1. I like my heroes damaged too. Perfect is just not real, even if what i read is mostly fantasy. I need a logical, realistic twist to the story for it to draw me in – and yes, I’m talking about fantasy.
