...Says on the tin. Lately, I'm consuming a ton of content (thanks Netflix and Amazon) and as I do, I am starting to gravitate towards materials that arent my type (I miss the Megaupload days). Back then, I really like redemption stories. I mean, for some time, it was kind the formula for making a character develop. Here's a douche character and part of his development is go for the redemption route and everything has a relatively happy ever after. Which is nice and a good closure for some. Lately, I'm feeling kinda sick of those redemption stories. Like its so predictable. I know as a reader that this douche character will go this route and in my author POV, it's a hit and miss if that redemption route feels like a regression. But in some instances, I started thinking why does this character need redemption anyway? Readers will hate anyone they hate and the same goes for people who love them. Even a redemption story will unlikely to change people's minds. Besides, I don't like reading that a redemption story is just a 'pass' for others who eventually like the character. For me, even characters who weren't redeemed can have an interesting and complicated backstory without f going to a redemption route. I'd like to know whether you share or didn't like this opinion. I think I might bn build an irredeemable character for a friend since she seems interested in the idea. before I jump, I like to know if somebody has done it and if possible, how they pulled it off.
