Usually in stories, you write about the good guys--someone who is clearly in the right, who is easy to sympathize with (if not written like a brick). Sometimes, you write about someone's journey to the "dark side", either wit their last-minute redemption, or them succeeding in a quest to damn themselves tragicly. Sometimes everyone is a bad guy, like in the Grimdark world of Warhamer. Other times, less often, there is no good side or right character. Normally, these stories are done with two protagonists the narrative swaps between, often to show an interesting case of opposed ideologies. Something I see less is stories with a single protagonist where he and no one else can be considered "the right/good one"--and you can see why, since it is hard to write that in an interesting manner. I would like to bring up for discussion the latter two cases. A "no good guys" scenario of writing. These sorts of stories are of great interest to me, and currently I am writing one of that kind (just started, but nearly have 5 chapters). Does anyone else have interest in these sorts of stories, or have opinions on the subject? As the title hinted, this thread is about the ironic nature of designing a story where no group is in the right, yet then you take sides in the story (usually both sides) and make characters sympathetic and relatable so as to get your readers to take sides. Thank you for taking an interest in this discussion. I hope it is enjoyable and educational for all its readers.
