The Anti-Protagonist Challenge Results
For this challenge, participants had to create a sympathetic portrayal of a not-so-nice character (an anti-protagonist, if you will). There were six wonderful entries, all of which I recommend if you've got some free time and some tissues at the ready. Open your minds and your hearts to some beautiful stories about the "baddies." (As a side note--and I know everyone always says this BUT IT'S TRUE--it was so difficult to choose the winners, to the point that I was going back and forth even up to the point that I requested graphics for the results. )
Here are all of the entries, in alphabetical order:
