Hi, my name's Heidi and I love writing. Favorite topics are anime/manga, games, and lit. I like anything fantasy. If it's weird, I probably like it.

Competing Ideologies and Character Dilemmas
Characters facing conflicts make for an interesting story, and we know characters may experience different types of conflicts with other characters or even the world they exist in. How, then, do ideologies fit into this? Many people have a set of beliefs to follow, but what happens when one of their beliefs contradict another belief they have? Just an example of many, but consider Simba from The Lion King and how he has to choose between leaving home to achieve freedom or return home to fulfill his role as heir to the throne (obviously there are more examples of other characters facing competing ideologies, this is just the first that came to mind).
