Look at the pictures and the title of the article. What does the title mean?

In any book, cartoon or we all to see the heroes defeat the villains. save the world. win the girl and live happfly ever after. aut just between you and me. we feel a little bit sorry for the villains as well?

Sarurnan. from The Lord of the Rings, is an all-time favourite villain, the type of villain I like. He is a tall wizard with a long 10 white beard and cold dar* eyes. He wears a long White robe and carries a magic staff. Once he was a good wizard but the power Ot a magic ring has made him evil and greedy and now he wants 15 to rule the world. Only Frodo. the small ring bearer, can stop him.

Frodo Baggins, a Hobbit. is small. brave and honest. with bright eyes. curly brown hair and very large hairy feet! His 20 mission is to take the magic ring to Mordor where it will be destroyed. He travels with some friends and together they have to face many dangers. Gandalf a Wise wizard. protects then and shows them the way.

Another Of my favourite heroes Peter Pan. a mischievous. daring boy with pointed ears Who can fy and never grows peter and his friends. the

Lost Boys. have a dangerous enemy 30 called Captain Hook.

With his black moustache. cruel and a sharp metal hook instead of a hand. the cunning Captain Hook is a perfect villain. He always wears a broad. 35 brimmed hat and fine clothes. He lives with a band of pirates an his ship. the Jolly Roger. making plans to kidnap the Lost Boys and capture the bog he hates.

Not all villains are men. The Wicked 40 Queen in Snow White is one ot the most cold-hearted villains ever Beautiful but vain. the queen asks her mirror every day. "Mirror. mirror on the wall. who is the fairest of them all?" The answer 45 always pleases her, until one day the mirror replies that kind and caring Snow White is even prettier than her. The jealous queen is so angry that she dresses up as an Old woman and gives 50 Snow White a poisoned apple.

Whether heroes or villains. these are the characters I admire the most. I love to watch the heroes fight the villains and eventually see good Win over evil. I also 55 cant help feeling tor the villains and their weaknesses: I just love to hate them! These stories are timeless and the Characters are larger than lite.

"Hi! My name is Stephen and I live in a tiny flat in Brixton, south-west London. I chose to live here because there is never a dull moment in a city like London. I'm an art student and the hustle and bustle Of so many people in one area is the inspiration for a lot of my painting. Another advantage of city life is having everything you nccd so close at hand. Living beside the Tube station means don't need a car to get around, which saves me money, Also. there are shopping centres, art galleries and museums everywhere,

Of course, London. like anv large city, has its problems, too. Londoners don't chat on the Tube or the bus and there is much less community spirit than in the country. Where my parents live. In fact, they don't understand how I can put up with the constant noise and pollution, and traffic congestion. However. see that as a small price to pay. I'm in my element herc in the heart of this fine city. As a famous poet once said, 'He who is tired of London is tired Of life.'

Bill — Anne — John & Mary

A sleepy village surrounded by woods and rivers might suit some people, but others preter the bright lights and fast pace of the big city, 'Down Town' spoke to Stephen and Marianna to get both sides of the story.

"Hello — or •G'day'. as we say down under. My name is Marianna and I live in New South Wales, Australia, on a huge ranch called The Rain River Land. Its a beautiful area With fantastic scenery. I live here with my husband Joe and our two children, Patrick, I l. and Abby, 8.

We have lived on this ranch for so•cral years and love our healthy lifestyle, We have 70,000 hectares of land. so the children have lots of space to run around and enjoy the peace and quiet. The air is clean and fresh and we produce a lot of our own food so we are sure that What we eat is fresh. There's lots Of hard work to do running a ranch. hut wc don't mind.

Of course, there are some negative aspects to life out here. There are often droughts in Australia, and sometimes wc can't grow any crops for months. We feel isolated sometimes, too. especially since the nearest neigh bours are almost 00kn1 away. Another problem is that many things are not as easily available as in the city. There are no local facilities such as schools. supermarkets and shops, and if we are ill we have to call the flying doctor

Although life here can be difficult, we wouldnt change it for the world:'
