10 Reasons Why We Love Villanelle

Today, I have a very special surprise for you! I met with Villanelle herself and invited her to write this article 🙂 So, without further ado let’s find out 10 reasons why we love Villanelle, written by Villanelle herself! Get ready for an adventure of glamor, mischief and a pinch of wickedness. You’re in for a wild ride through the twisted and seductive mind of this fabulous character.

1. Charismatic Personality

You find yourself irresistibly drawn to moi. I know it! And why not? I’m so cute 🙂 Let me tell you more. I am ready to confess. From my irresistible allure to my daring sense of style, I guarantee to keep you hooked like a puppet on strings. I’m never boring! Despite my wicked inclinations, you can’t help but succumb to my charms, isn’t that so? She said I’m a psychopath, but you should never tell a psychopath they are a psychopath… it upsets them AND It ruins the surprise! I prefer to think of myself as a force of nature, a magnetic whirlwind that sweeps you off your feet.

2. Unparalleled Confidence

I’m a big deal. I own every room I enter. I’d like to inspire you to embrace your own uniqueness and seize every opportunity with boldness. You only live once, don’t make it boring! And don’t worry if you make bad things once in a while or silly mistakes, hey, look at me! 😀 You can be whoever you want to be, it’s not that hard.

I’m kind of a big deal in this industry.

3. Unpredictability

I’m unpredictable and this is what makes things more interesting. I know my nature keeps you on the edge of your seats, never knowing what I’ll do next. I like that! It gives me more freedom and I can play as I want. Your fear sometimes amuses me. It’s a form of entertainment! I like a thrilling narrative that keeps you spellbound.

4. Fearless and Bold

I have no boundaries and I absolutely adore risk. I’ve been living in danger my whole life, so it’s like a second nature. There’s no fun in a life without risk, danger, pain or fear. These are all my powerful weapons and some of my strongest assets. I have many.

5. Fashion Icon

Should I say more? I love beautiful things and have a great sense of fashion. Most people don’t. They think that they do, but they really don’t. Look at yourself in the mirror from time to time. What I am saying? It’s pointless if you really can’t tell the difference. And don’t bother buying designer clothes, if you don’t have class and elegance because it’s not about the price tag, but how you effortlessly rock that piece and your power to steal the spotlight.

6. Blunt Honesty, or Brutal Honesty

My unfiltered honesty can be both amusing and cutting. But I fearlessly speak my mind, unapologetically sharing my thoughts and never hesitating to call out those who underestimate me. They probably don’t know that I’ll kill them and that’s okay. No one can predict the future.

I have to kill you now.

7. Seductive Persistence

I relentlessly pursue, fueled by an unyielding desire. My magnetic charm lures you into my web, making it impossible to resist the allure of my enticing proposition. It’s so easy with everyone, but not with Eve. That was hard. I don’t know… it’s really hard to talk about my feelings, honestly, so let me tell you another reason why you are completely and madly in love with my charm.

8. Dark Humor

Hahaha! Only smart people understand dark humor. Or humor, in general. There aren’t many left, but if you are one of them, I’d probably not kill you yet. I’ll spare your life just for the sake of statistics and for having an audience. The world would be such a boring place without quality humor. Ha!

9. Versatility

I’m the true master of disguise. I can be anyone I want. I did get a lot of practice through my line of work, but it’s also talent. One of my favorite undercover characters was Billie. That was more challenging, but not too much, let’s be real! I did love the pink bubblegum hair and the New York accent. I’m very good with languages, you sure have noticed. Working with Carolyn was interesting, although the real pleasure was being so close to Eve.

Smell me, Eve.

10. The Dark Side

Admit it! You have it in you. We all do, I am just honest about it. You want to be me. Maybe not the killing part – but still, wandering the world in all those amazing clothes, being whoever you want to be. I’m not hiding, you know. I’m just making things interesting. I wouldn’t want a boring life, although sometimes I dream of a nice quiet place in the mountains. You know, someone to watch movies with… But, not today! I’ve got plans. An international deal that I have to take care of. See you soon! 😀 I might be watching…
