My main characters (my MC and his love interest) are both very damaged people and the idea is that in any other story they would be villains but the point of the story is that there are no good guys just bad guys and worse guys. They basically are not well adjusted and are together because of a mutually beneficial alliance however there is severe codependency between them. They both have similar powers both revolve around controlling people and both have the same or rather similar insecurities he craves loyalty and she craves love. However when it comes to when one becomes hurt they will each go ballistic even though through out the story both make each other miserable the idea is that even though they hurt each other they are the only ones who truly understand one another. My only problem is that they are pretty much villains who hurt other people for the woman it's usually in the heat of the moment or if she's in one of her as the MC often put's it "moods" like she's been through lots of trauma and is severly emotionally scarred to the point being easy to set off basically she's the emotionally unstable one. She's like West from Emerald City. The MC is always out to gain more power and status(he's the ambitious and cool headed one) because he's been weak and helpless before and so he never wants to be weak and powerless. The way they met is he used his power to enslave her and bend her to his will(something that happened to her many times) ironically he's the first to really not treat her badly at least by her standards which are no physical acts of violence at worst he's very critical of her. I just worry they are too intense and dangerous to be received well as main characters.
