Default Re: Writing original fic, killing of characters

Sorry Iím so late for this, but I had to answer to this! I donít like killing my characters, and I make different excuses why some character, thatís supposed to be years dead by now, is still living.
I do have one character in a book Iím writing (itís a series of book, really) thatís an exception. He was ok in the first book, but now, in the second one, heís become a major pain in the neck for the other main characters, and I canít wait to kill him! I first though of killing him in some battle, but than I decided that he did his part, and he, being bad or not (itís mostly my fault of what became of him, anyway), deserves a nice go. So, I suppose heíll die without any pain, surrounded by family members and suchÖ
As for the happy endings bit, I like them, but not every book can have them (but, my mostly do).
"Manuscripts don't burn", Woland, ''The Master and Margarita''

From the Weyr and from the Bowl
Bronze and Brown and Blue and Green,
Rise the dragonmen of Pern,
Aloft, on wing, seen, then unseen.
Dragonman avoid excess
Greed will bring the Weyr distress;
To the ancient Laws adhere,
Prospers thus the Dragon-weyr.
