Apparently, Robin Hood wasn’t a very nice guy. He was a nasty dude, robbing from EVERYONE.
There goes my childhood. I spent it watching the Disney animated Robin Hood, practically idolizing the fictious(?) hero. I pretty much just wanted to be a badass archer, but I loved the stories, too.
Still, it makes for an intriguing story; this echoes the storyline from one episode of Firefly, “Jaynestown.” The character Jayne screws up a robbery and upon returning to the planet, he’s remembered as a hero of Robin Hood proportions.
So, a writing prompt or two.
1. Write a story about a man/woman who is anything but a hero, but interpretted as such.
2. Write about a person who is robbed by this individual.
