I don't think it's one over the other. What's a protagonist without an antagonist? A rather boring plot.

yes, but the antagonist doesn't always have to be a single person, y'know... could be some force of nature, a particular event, a government, or even the protag him/herself...

I connect very much with my antagonist. Part of the reason for this, I feel, is that I have given my antagonist very real reasons for their role in the story. It is not a frivolous or outrageous situation.

Every piece of feedback I've received on the two novels I've written has indicated I seem to connect more with the Antagionist. I guess I have a demented mind. :twisted:
