I have been thinking about perspective, in a literary sense, around the quote that "History is written by the winner." It is making me look back at some of my favorite stories and imagining them from a different point of view. What if the hero really was a bad guy and the history writers just manipulated things in his favor so he was hero? How would that change things? What would the "real" story be like? How would I write certain scenes so they would be intriguing but not immediately recognizable until the middle or end of the story? I may have to write a series of scenes based around this idea. If I did this, what scenes/stories would you like me to take a look at?
