The numbness of an author making it known that you will never read a line containing a certain character. Alive. The effect of writers on the mental psyche is both a blessing and sometimes it feels like it kills something inside. Although I know for most dedicated authors, killing off a fictional character is more than simple scribbles on paper or a series of words on a flashing screen, sometimes I wonder whether it is a goal of authors to compare how much they can “punch” readers in the feels (metaphorically of course…)
