Well, says I, a drama whore is often mislabeled as Evil. This is because she/he likes to torture fictional characters, kill them off, break up their happy homes, and otherwise disrupt the perfect world of How It Should Be. And I admit I enjoy this. But the subtle distinction here is that if I were truely Evil, the crushing of the character would be enough for me. The wanton distruction would make my little Evil heart happy.
But a drama whore likes to create wanton destruction and then watch the characters rise above it.
See the difference?
Evil = Kill off Sim!Clark to watch Sim!Lex cry, break down, and die of a broken Sim Heart.
Drama Whore = Kill off Sim!Clark to watch Sim!Lex cry, break down, and almost die of a broken heart before CLONESim!Clark arrived to hug and kiss on mend his broken Sim Heart.
See? For a Drama Whore it's all about the happy ending. Kill, maim, torture, break up, do your worst. As long as there is a happy ending.
See? It's a *fine line*. As long as there is a happy ending? It's all good.
Back to maiming a character. But only a little. A minor aneurysm. A tiny bit of brain damage. Some vivisection. It's all *for the greater good*. You can see this, right?
What are your favorites in this category? I'm curious if I've missed any Big Fun.
