You know what I want to read? A novel about a villainess after the main story where she gets sent to a rehab center. She slowly realizes how naive/delusional she was and actually slowly but surely reforms into a better person. It would be even better if touched upon themes of mental health, such as an anxiety disorder or something. I want to see that juicy growth stuff and for once have the villainess be an actual human being instead of a -100 IQ prop for the heroine. Then perhaps later on we can get some spicy romance as well with one of the supporting male/female leads. Maybe they used to know the villainess before she went off the deep end and was harboring this crush on them since forever but gave up when she went crazy? Perhaps a second chance type of romance? Or maybe just falling in love with the new her? Think of the possibilities! They could perhaps be the doctor/caretaker who suddenly shows up when the villainess is halfway through her transformation. Make her confront her past and we can have this slow-burn type of romance where both sides are so hesitant and awkward. Or there could be no romance and we get a slow journey of a woman finding herself and gaining a sort of self-made independence that is not reliant on another's love. Either way would be fine by me. I just wish happiness for the villainess honestly. I'm just so tired of them not getting any development from them after they are defeated by the main leads. Or if there is a novel focused on the villainess, most of the time they are isekaied so it's not even the "original" soul anymore. Sigh.... This is just a rant really, but I wouldn't mind hearing other people's thoughts about it. I welcome any comments, concerns, criticism, etc.
