Anyway, all that to say, I love writing villains. And when they're in love, so much the better. Which is why I can't help being smitten by Charles and Camilla's story. Horrible as it is, I find it kind of sweet that they couldn't stop sending each other raunchy emails and finding excuses to meet through mutual interests, even after the world found out about it and strung them up in the court of public opinion.
In entertainment, we're all over villainous love subplots. How much fun would True Blood be without Eric? Or The Vampire Diaries, without Damon? But despite all the passion involved, the villain never gets his way in the end, since light seems to trump dark in most endings.
Maybe that's because in real life, things aren't always so neat and tidy.
