Exceptionalism

You know the type. The ones that speed because the limits apply to everyone except them. The cheaters, liars, etc. to whom the law doesn’t apply.

Exceptional characters are common figures in apocalyptic fiction.

They’re the ones who break the cordon when an outbreak occurs. Depending on the story, they either spread the disease leading to pandemics, killing loads more people, or survive to lead others to safety.

They’re the leaders.

They’re the loners.

And the rules apply to everyone except them.

They can be heroes.

They can also be villains.

It all depends on the circumstances. And when you have one of each in the same story. Well, that’s just great entertainment.

Until next time.
