All serial killers have to start somewhere. >.>
2) Main Character Angst
Not edgy enough. Killing loved one will make it better. Flawless logic.
3) Couldn’t Justify Their Existence
Who even is this person? Oh well, down this random cliff with them.
4) Straight Up Got Bored
This story needs something. *randomly gets character stabbed to death* Much better.
5) Suddenly Realized I Forgot About Them For Half The Story
“Oh hey, so there’s where you’ve been all this time!”
– One paragraph later –
“Oh, no, you’re dead!” 😐
6) Specifically To Make Readers Cry
Hey, look at this precious human being you’ve been gradually falling in love with for pages worth of story! NOW WATCH WHAT I DO WITH THEM! *EVIL LAUGHTER*
Don’t worry, guys, I’ve grown up a lot since any of these things happened. I assure all character deaths from now on are well thought out and serve an important purpose in the plot of my stories.
