not me, i hate disney lol. i've never seen a disney film,even as a kid they never appealed to me.

i just dislike goody two shoes, especially in my fiction because they're simply not believable. a goody goody would get slaughtered the second he left his village. plus it seems like good always cheats, inevitably there will be a magic trinket that helps the 15 year old boy defeat the evil wizard who has been practicing his magic for centuries. a wizard who raises armies of the dead, rips open gates to other dimensions but is defeated by a kid. thats just cheating. take the ring away from frodo and see how far he gets.

i think i enjoy rougher fantasy like many of the titles mentioned because its simply more believable. a battle scarred veteran or assassin has a legitimate chance of defeating the bad guy. they're on more even terms.
