Ways to Kill Characters

Character deaths are among my favorite topic, hence why there are two or three different pages regarding it. Nothing explicit will be written here, however there is mention of suicide. If that unsettles/triggers/upsets you, skip this page or that tab.

The “How To” Guide of Death

1) EXECUTION/ASSASSINATION: Hanging, gullitione, burning, being crushed by rocks, judgement by well/water*, drowning, poison, gunshot, stab wound, and more.

*Judgement by well/water: Toss a (living) someone into a well or other body of water. If they float, they’re guilty and will therefore suffer punishment for their crime. If they sink (and most likely drown) they were innocent.

2) MANSLAUGHTER: Gunshot misses target and hits other character, someone jumps in front of bullet/sword/arrow etc., hits them in a vehicle (not on purpose), gives them poisoned drink or food rather than the other character(s), fights a masked/hidden characters and after killing them find out who it was. As always, there’s more.

3) MURDER: Gunshot, stab wound, arrow, getting hit with a vehicle (not on accident), tortured, poisoned, suffocation, drowing, releasing animals to kil, trapping and more

4) POSSESSION: Character one is possessed, kills character two. Character is possessed, kills themselves [possibly after killing others]

5) SUICIDE: Hanging, jumping off bridge or cliff, drowning, gunshot, stabbing/cutting, letting themselves bleed out, walking into crossfire/war and more

6) NATURAL CAUSES: Disease, landslide/avalanche, fatal fall, frostbite/frostburn, heatstroke, starvation, thirst, stroke, heart attack, cancer/tumor and more

8) WAR: Friendly fire or enemy fire.

The Search History

There’s a reason I have my search history paused...

1) Go to your account settings and find search history.

2) Once there, choose “erase history,” upon which it may pop up with something regarding the dates between which you’d like to be deleted. Type in current date and a very long time ago.

3) While still in your history area, find where it says “pause search history” after deleting it all.

4) [Optional] Go to your browser sign-in area. Sign-out of the account you have open.

Why Do I Feel Bad for Killing Off Characters?

Characters are parts of us. Whether they’re based from ourselves, the people we love or hate, we bury a piece of our mind, heart or soul within them. It’s normal to have an emotional attatchment to characters— ours or not. To feel remorse for those of the story lost is fine. To not feel emotion is also fine.
