Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story? If so, which one??
Murtagh in the Inheritance series. The more Paolini tries to make him bad and selfish, the more I like him. Considering his horrific upbringing, I want him to punch Eragon in his smug, self righteous face every time they cross paths. Murtagh is a survivor and if everyone is going to judge him for not sacrificing himself for the greater good, they can get bent. No one ever sacrificed themself for him, so expecting him to live by a set of rules he's never experienced or understands is ridiculous.
