POV from an evil character? Writing an alternative plot?
I've always loved the theme of madness. I don't know why, it has always intrigued me. My novel's protagonist is a good character. She has suffered a great deal of tragedy but remained in idealist and optimistic beliefs, even when they are challenged by more tragedy within the story line. My protagonist is also of an "evil" clan's blood and therefore, she has the disadvantage of genetics urging her towards darkness.
She is going to pull through and still be the good guy, I believe but I can't help but what if--
What if she doesn't take the good path? What if she falls off, spiraling into darkness, and becoming the enemy or the "bad guy" herself? I really like the idea of an "evil" protagonist. Should I test this idea out in a short story? I don't know. I'm talking to myself on here I guess...
