Reminders about antiheroes

the-right-writing:

  • They don’t count as antiheroes if there are zero in-text clues that their behavior is immoral. It just looks like you share their opinions.
  • They don’t count as antiheroes if their actions never have any negative consequences. The whole point of immoral actions is that people get hurt.
  • Please don’t write what you think of as a hero and then slap the antihero label on them when you get criticism for their actions.
