Imagine you are a reader and you have fell in love with the antagonist in a plot but the writer hates this character and decides to kill it. That is what pain is. That is the same pain someone experiences when they lose a vital piece of them. Do not misunderstand my comparison of fiction and reality. A good writer will write a book worthy enough to take you to other dimensions and probably even be able to convince you that whatever belief they state is life but that is a topic for another day. Today, I write about loss. Not something many people are familiar with. I was recently and as I stared out of the window and watched the stagnant traffic-that only a human living in a third world country may understand-a song on my playlist caught my attention. Bishop Briggs “The Way I Do”. From the artist’s interpretation of her song, it was a love letter to music. Yes, that is fascinating. If you want to learn more just go to https://genius.com/Bishop-briggs-the-way-i-do-lyrics . Well, listening critically to that song made me realize some of the things in life that one needs to learn on their own. First, no matter how much you love someone they will never realize the process that it involves. The pain. The shame. The idea of giving somebody the will to truly hurt you. They will never realize this unless they love you back. Second, no matter how lonely it will get, move on. I won’t lie. The second one is a bit harsh that. Okay, completely harsh. Am yet to come to terms with that but maybe that is why I am here writing this. It has been a while since I wrote and maybe it is because I lacked any emotional prompt in my life. There is one thing on my mind. The antagonist character I fell in love with but it seems like the writer doesn’t like his influence on me. Yes, I fell in love. No, am not at the happiest place in my life. Love life to be specific. What ticks me off the most, is how right the emotion feels and how wrong it also feels at so many levels. It was certainly unexpected. They say that is the best type of love, the one you never see coming. Did they ever say how hard it hits and the scars that follow afterwards? Or about the sleepless and not so peaceful nights? Did anybody ever mention the idea of loving someone to the core that if there is any issue between you, you feel sick? Like literally, your appetite drops, you get mood swings like you are a hormonal teenage girl on her period or even worse. That is the funny part. Nobody ever mentions that. It is evident the writer can tell how toxic this character is to me but as a reader I feel different. This is the one time I feel as though I, the reader should guide the writer through the alternate universe they created. Not as some form of misplaced sense of self-righteousness or an adamant pursuit of a happy ending which is clearly also fiction in the alternate universe. I feel this way because for a long time, I, the reader I have had to go by the writer’s line of thoughts but my belief system is contrary. The writer wants to point out the irony of love using my situation. There are so many people in love but not together and so many people together but not in love. I am forced to live by the protagonist who drives the entire plot of the story but deep down I would prefer to be with the antagonist. This writer is the type of writer who hates the antagonist even if he is the sweetest person in the plot. Yes, in most plots the antagonist is a villain. But that is not necessary. The antagonist just affects the plot indirectly. They are often overlooked by the protagonist’s fake fame in the plot. Even if the protagonist is certainly the most stupid character in the book and has a series of wrong life choices and a string of bad luck, the writer will convince you about their beauty. I don’t want that beauty that is built on surface lies. I want the antagonist’s beauty that is unappreciated. Their worth that only those willing to delve into depths too deep even for Poseidon to swim in. I want to know this mysterious character and what makes them opposite to the star of the show. I want to know why the writer doesn’t want me to have this form of emotion called affection towards the antagonist. This antagonist is my wonderwall. Someone I find myself thinking about all the time and I am completely infatuated with. The writer feels like what I the reader wants is wrong. Look at it from Calia Read’s point of view in breaking the wrong. “Everyone wants to fall in love. But I think more people are in love with the theory of love. If you’re looking in from the outside it looks so beautiful. On the inside, it’s scary because it can take over your life. It’s the strongest emotion but also the darkest. It can put you on a high for days, but it can wrap an anchor around your feet and drown you in less than a minute.” The writer doesn’t want me to experience this threatening pleasures because like most people, the easier way is safer. He wants me to have the idea of love while adoring the protagonist and denies the truth of the joy and pain that true love brings. The exact emotions I feel whenever I simply think of the antagonist. Maybe I have gotten it all wrong and I might be overthinking the entire situation. The writer though convinces me, the reader through the characters that we should chase after what we desire most. My desire is to appeal the antagonist and freely express my love for him without the pain, the shame and he will finally know my love for him. Dear Antagonist This is what I feel Deep down, I think everybody wants to be ‘the one’ to someone. I don’t know if I’ve ever been that person to anyone else- but I do know you are that person to me. You are the one. The only one. And you will always be. Ranata Suzuki Arwitos Monday 7th May 7, 2018 0315hrs
