This is one of my favourite things too even though I generally like villains because they're villains. It's nice to play "what if" though and it is an interesting concept.

But I rarely read fic of it precisely because so few people seem to be prepared to be in it for the long-haul and make it believable. I also feel it's easier to accept with villains already giving off anti-hero vibes as opposed to being pure evil but even with the foundations of a seemingly ready-made redemption arc, people still regularly mess it up wanting to rush towards the good stuff.

If it's because you want your favourite villain to hook up with your favourite hero (something I also get is popular for a reason) I personally would honestly rather read PWP most of the time because nothing has to make any sense as to how these two (or more) people ended up together on any grand scale.
