Not Bad - Just Drawn That Way: Scandal Savage
You know, you should read Secret Six.
I’ll say it again for clarification: you should read Secret Six.
With that out of the way, let me make it abundantly clear that I am a stickler for villains. If your story’s villains don’t make a lick of sense or rely way too heavily on the whole “crazy = bad” schtick then I have a much harder time enjoying the narrative and other characters. So I take villains pretty dang seriously.
And when it comes to bad guys that move me more than most of the heroes? There’s hardly any competition for Scandal Savage.
She’s the leader and brains behind the mercenary group Secret Six, the daughter of immortal Vandal Savage, and a horribly messed up human being in her own right. She loves, she loses love, loses her soul, and is forced to move on each and every day.
Scandal manages to maintain a code and sensibilities. She’s personable to the people she allows herself to be personable with - either her partners or teammates - but she’s equally despicable. She will knowingly chose the wrong way to go, but as you follow her and the Six you cannot help but accept that it was the only real choice to make.

I agree! People should read Secret Six!
ask a girl out as a dare
This happened to me 3 times in my life. and one of the times I didn’t go to school for a few days out of mortification cuz half the kids in my grade were in on it.
It is like the worst thing you can do.
OR ANYONE. DONT EVER ASK ANYONE OUT UNLESS YOU ACTUALLY FUCKING MEAN IT KIDDOS.
someone dared a girl to ask me out once, or she lost some game or something, I don’t remember. I do remember the guys coming to me and telling me I should say yes to her and play along with it. And they didn’t see how in doing that they were effectively trying to humiliate two people at once. I obviously refused :/
