I don’t mind being a symbol. Every villain is one, after all, in some form or another. You’re a symbol of power’s corruption or the dangers of fanaticism; a symbol of the evils of greed or wrath or vanity or vengeance. Sometimes you’re just a symbol of what monsters we can be, for any reason or no reason at all. People will see what they want in you whether you like it or not, so why let it bother you? Don’t worry about me. I can be the witch or the traitor or the murderer. I can be the big bad wolf. It’s cool. A bad reputation is still a reputation.
