U is for Underdog


No, not this guy.


People always root for the underdog. Even though it’s predictable in itself, people like to see heroes defeat villains stronger than they are, or else small groups win against larger ones. And when there’s not even a “right” and “wrong” side to begin with, the weaker team is always the one that people sympathize with.

I wrote a scene that failed pretty badly due to the plot not really allowing for the antagonist to be a match for the protagonist at that point in the story; the result, while making sense, was simply too anticlimactic for that point in the story and it’s probably the biggest rewrite I have left.
