Hey Fans, Friends, and Fellows,
The villain coming back from the grave is one of the oldest tropes across writing genres. We have it in horror, science fiction, fantasy, mystery, thriller, and so many others. Some times the grave portion of it is a bit more literal than others but the trope of returning evil is a classic. When it’s done well we even feel ourselves hoping this isn’t the last time that we’ll see our favorite monster.
Writing Prompt: Write a scene in which you give an antagonist a second chance. How will you embrace and make the trope your own?
