(By lonespark, sort of)
This was in part a response to learning that Javert and Jean Valjean, two characters who spend Les Misérables were based on the same real life person, and also in part in response to it being noted that they reflect the D&D alignments of Lawful Neutral and Neutral Good respectively
I am thinking we could have open threads discussing pairs of characters who represent opposite ends of spectra, or what similar people could be under varied circumstances, etc. Like pragmatic vs. idealistic, valuing individuals over groups, etc. I guess it doesn’t have to be pairs, but it’s most often two or three characters, who are epic when they fight, or work together or have relationships…
Prompt for this thread:
What are some pairs/triads/whatevers of characters that we could discuss in this way in future open threads?
Or, I suppose, what do you think of Lonespark’s ideas that we use some open threads in the future to do this?
