I would honestly prefer reading about the stupid paranormal romance where the weird non-human boyfriend can’t work out the DVD player over Brooding Manipulative and Controlling asshole trope

[screaming at the DVD player] IM 800 YEARS OLD CUT ME SOME SLACK

“Unless you know how to work a 15th-century printing press you can stop laughing and show me how to Twitter again.”

“So besides living really long and screaming at technology can you, like… do anything useful?”

“I can go really fast?”

“Yeah, yeah, okay, that could come in handy. Anything else?”

“I can bite people to death!”

How to make a character's death sadder

the-right-writing:

  1.  Don’t have them die of old age after a long, fulfilling life. Many people don’t even think of this as sad (note that this can still work if you have enough of the other factors).
  2.  Leave one of their major goals unfinished. The more enthusiastic they are about completing the goal, the sadder.
  3.  Give them strong relationships with other characters.
  4.  Make them fight against whatever is causing their death. Their ultimate loss is sadder if they struggle.
  5.  Kill them in the middle of their character arc.
  6.  Don’t describe their funeral in detail. Maybe it’s just me, but I find that long descriptions of funerals kill the sadness.

stevraybro:

    That’s enough Satan’s publisher…

    shuttle-fly-blogs:

    7. If possible, try to kill them off in the middle of the story, so we had time to like them and we will have time to let the loss settle in.

    8. Also, place surviving characters in a situation where having the deceased person there would help them get out. You can choose whether you will point this fact out or if you want the audience to make the connection themselves.

    9. Make them die by sacrificing themselves to save someone they love from a danger created by the antagonist.

    socialjusticeprincesses:

    based on a few deaths that made me blub like a baby…

    10. have their loved one, broken hearted, tell the team to stop fighting because “its over.” 

    11. have their pet come looking for them. 

    12. have their loved one perform a popular song at their funeral so it makes the fans cry whenever it’s played.

    13. family witnessing the death and/or blaming themselves.

    ~ Mulan

    asbehsam:

    so… let’s add some frustration to your dear readers’ sadness, shall we?

    14. kill the character in the middle of making a joke, smiling, or expressing/experiencing joy/happiness.

    15. make the character’s death slow and painful, but make them unable to call out for help even though they can literally see the other characters nearby.

    16. after killing the character, have others think the character had betrayed them so they’d always hate them and remember them as traitors and never say nice things about them… Give your readers no chance to have group-therapy with other characters by making them the only ones who know the truth.

    17. right before their death, show a side of them nobody has seen. (someone who is always tough and brave being genuinely scared of dying alone; someone who is always laughing being in tears before dying, etc.)

    18. make them the only person who knows a big important secret that would help other characters in the story.

    19. have them being lied to before dying. (thinking they’ve been betrayed; thinking they weren’t loved; thinking they’ve lost their loved ones, etc)

    20. make the character very enthusiastic/passionate about a certain goal, constantly put stress on their goal, have them die unexpectedly before they can reach their goal. 

    and the best one…

    21. have another beloved character kill them–better be a close friend to your character, one that absolutely nobody suspects, one that everyone can’t help but love, one who is always enthusiastic about things and encourages your character. THEN

    • reveal the truth only later when it’s too late and the a-hole character has already escaped.
    • have a cowardly character know the truth and never tell anyone else
    • have another character find out the truth and have them die before revealing it to others. 
    • have the said character ^ not actually die, but go through something so they’d forget the friend of the deceased character is actually an asshole. 

    This way only your readers will know the truth, thus the frustration would be… most enjoyable for you. 

    Satan out.

    sundownwinter:

    22. Don’t kill their body.  Kill their mind.

    Leave the physical shell walking and talking, but strip out everything that made that person who they were.  Make them forget all about their loved ones, themselves, their experiences and past, their skills, and have them have to start over completely from scratch.  Physical and mental disabilities bonus points.

    And keep them in a place where their loved ones will be taunted every day by a living ghost.

    a fantasy book where:

    • the necromancer isn’t at all evil, keeps their reanimated cat as a companion
    • the ‘dark lord’ is woman who wears a floor length floral cloak and pink kitten heels
    • the orcs are highly intelligent and frequently engage in orc chess and deep philosophical debates
    • the elvish archer is the clumsiest, most inaccurate little shit ever
    • the bard writes deep emo poetry, constantly quoting sonnets by the most talented musicians of the era-  ‘fall out bard’ and ‘panic at the inn’
    • the mage only knows 3 spells- and they all involve cutlery
    • the intellectual character that finds the powerful relic/enchanted item/mysterious glowy thing is 120% done with all of it ‘for GODS sake, that is the SEVENTH DARK ORB THIS YEAR are yOU KIDDING’
    • the healer character is also the most ripped, usually ends up treating their own wounds more than anyone elses
    • the ‘deep broody’ character is actually mute the whole time but no one realises and thinks it’s just part of his moody persona until he has to fucking spell it out for them (literally), spends the whole story making exasperated faces and gestures
    • the dragon that’s hunting them down for the whole story is actually just trying to give back the shoe that one of them lost while running away, and is actually very conversational ‘bro, you’ve got this all wrong– look, you dropped this bro, haha i’m always forgetting stuff too don’t worry’

    What if someone got bitten by a vampire, but didn’t realize it. So then they go around and keep misidentifying all the symptoms, like

    “Dude, you haven’t gone outside in a while.”
    “Yeah, last time I went out I got this wicked sunburn.”

    “Are you still up?”
    “Yeah, I started bing watching this show on Netflix.”

    “Dude, I’m seriously craving something right now.”
    “Like what?”
    “I dunno. Pizza rolls?”

    “Why is it that you never come into my house unless I invite you?”
    “Um, it’s called ‘being polite’…?”

    “I tried cooking with garlic the other night and got this serious burn on my hand. I think I’m allergic, but all I’m getting on Google is vampire bullshit.”

    “Dude can a mirror like… stop working or something?”

    “Dude, that garlic stinks.”

    editoress:

    I am all about stories where the hero and villain know each other very well and were once friends, but I could deal with it being used another way.

    What if instead of being used for drama, for wistfulness and pleas to join the other side, it was more like the hero looking over a battlefield going Seriously, who does she think she’s kidding, she’s been using the same chess strategy since we were seven or the villain picking a headquarters in a specific climate because she knows the hero hates hot weather or deciding Send in some forces to round up all the copies of his favorite poet’s work, that’ll tick him off.

    Or most of all them still having inside jokes with each other.

    #the forces on either side wear uniforms the color that the other one cant stand #makes sure to stop the import of their favorite candies. like all other food and stuff can pass. just not THOSE candies #’DID YOU KIDNAP MY CAT?!’ ‘Yeah. He’s a sweetheart. Can I keep him?’ ‘GIVE ME BACK MY CAT.’ ‘Yeah ok.’ #sends cat back with a bow and ‘next time don’t keep your key in the same place you did when we were room mates dumbass’#’Ma’am…the enemy has sent over a…a turkey?’ ‘…That mother fucker HE WAS SUPPOSED TO NEVER MENTION IT AGAIN. THAT’S IT. #SEND HIM A FUCKING GOAT HE’S TERRIFIED OF THEM

    It was raining recently in the Borneo area & I, TIna, Bryan & Kenvin share the same climate (being in Brunei, Sabah, Sarawak & Pontianak (Kalimantan) respectively)
    Just recently Sarawak was flooded & I joked about Bryan's fate to Tina & for some reason Kenvin was involved.

    what Hiro Hamada, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III & Steven Universe have in common: they've lost a loved one (but technically Rose Quartz can come back sometime later cuz she's not really DEAD dead)

    what Baymax, Toothless & the Lion have in common: THEY'RE BIG AND CUDDLY.

    A muggle-born’s sibling sends them a howler in the middle of the school year and it arrives while they eat. When they open it, all it does is simply scream “WHAT TEAM?”. Nearly all the muggle-borns shout “WILDCATS!” before returning to their meal, leaving the pure-bloods in total confusion of what the hell they just witnessed.
