🎶 Guess who’s back, back again. Sophia’s back, tell a friend. 🎶
It has been a million years since I’ve waddled straight into Bookending Winter and I’ve been bestowed the honor to kick things off with not a bang, but a snowstorm! Besides, the cold never bothered me anyway.
Did I just do two song references? Yes. But you all love me, and it’s time to get this winter party started.
Honestly, I shouldn’t be trusted with this because it’s well past midnight on December 1, and I’m writing this on my phone. Oh, and I should be sleeping because I’m working, but YOLO. 💁♀️
Hey, did I set my alarm? If not, that fine. It’ll be payback to my coworker for being annoying.
(So if you somehow see random characters or boxes, they’re supposed to be emojis. WordPress app can hella rude, and I hate it. 😤😤😤)
The villains have returned!
I hope you all know I don’t miss out on involving villains wherever I can, and this prompt is no exception.
I mean, I did have a Pinterest contest that no one entered, but to be fair, I didn’t exactly promote it either. 🎶 Every day I’m villaining. 🎶
Of course, with so much activity going on and the negative energy that appears from all that stress, the villains have returned! Only you’re finding them pop out of stockings everywhere. Kind of concerning, don’t you think? Not all of them are Loki.
Anyways, a moment to talk about what today’s prompt is!
You know, I almost forgot about this. I’m a poor host to leave you all with nothing.
I want to know what villains you want to find in your stocking or don’t! What would you do with them?
But before you decide whether or not you want to call your local Villain Police Department, you’re curious how they could ruin the holiday season.
Should you truly be concerned? Are they secretly cinnamon rolls? Or should we all brace ourselves in the next few weeks? 🤔 Let’s get our brainstorming caps on.
They might steal all your stockings.
Stockings are nice and warm and cozy… and they don’t burn. Considering how these villains came popping out of stockings left and right, it only makes sense they’ll want to steal them. Their home = their property = their right to take what’s theirs.
(See, if I actually had the hindsight of not losing track of time, there would’ve been a GIF from Finding Nemo. But that didn’t happen. 😪)
They’re gathering to overthrow the Grinch.
The Grinch has too much time in the spotlight and he’s not that cute anyway. Wouldn’t you rather have a more handsome villain to steal your Christmas this year? Would anyone object to this at all? What if they’re your favorite fictional villain appearing on your doorstep saying they’ve come to ruin Christmas for you?
You probably won’t notice.
They’re not stealing Christmas, they’ve come for the New Year.
No one expects New Year’s to be stolen. Plus with one week after Christmas, a little patience can go a long way. They don’t care about Christmas – the Grinch can keep stealing that and stay in that spotlight. He’ll be perfect for a distraction as us humans are running around in chaos figuring out what happened to Christmas.
I’ve called it, bookwyrms. I’ve called it. Villains are going to steal the New Year. Hey Darkling, make sure it’s the Roaring 20s if you throw a party, yeah?
They’ll eat all of Santa’s cookies before he arrives.
Santa is going to find himself thoroughly disappointed and hungry this year. All he’ll find are crumbs, remnants of treats once delicious and meant for him.
We’re getting put on that naughty list unless someone exposes these villains!
They can replace the gifts meant for you with something else.
Holidays are already filled with people stressing about what to get for their loved ones. No one knows what they’re getting either usually until Christmas morning. With some practice and sneaky plotting done beforehand, they can take that shiny new Switch and replace it with crushed carrots in a box that looks remarkably like the Switch is put in.
Starting feuds is fun for villains. They can live and thrive off the chaos.
