Well, so far I got one, 'cause I've written only one whole story, but I'm pretty sure that even those that don't have pages yet would definitely try to kill me without thinking twice about it, since most of them are killers, rebels or dark characters of some sort anyway xD
My zombie OC Lucas for killing him in thenfirst place, and giving him a stalker who wants to kill him and dates the chick he loves My prince for making him watch his wife and children slaughtered in front of him and losing his soul, leaving only one of his sons alive, likely never to see him again, His wife, for being killed,
All of his kids for making them be killed,
His father for making his son suffer and fall in love with a mermaid I the first place, and his surviving son for doing all of the above basically
My Disney OC would probably punch me in the face for nearly killing him, but then hug me for marrying him off to the one he loved in the end, but then he would punch me again for giving him a bad childhood and little reputation.
Most of them. I think. Especially my MCs :'D. Funny thing is that I once had a dream like this. One of my protagonists found out I was the one to make his life miserable, and vowed to kill me. Good times, good times...
Nearly all of them. Tam will kill me for framing her, making her half fey, and nearly die. Lynn would kill me because of her curse Prince Jason would kill me because of his years loathing for Tam that wasn't right. Jacob would kill me for killing Ruth. Ruth would kill me for nearly killing everyone in the books. Isabella would torture be just because same with Damon but then he would kill me. Pyry would hate me. Sadie would want to kill me but wouldn't for making her seeing love as weakness and giving her so much responsiblity. Jace would kill me for giving him compitition for Jennifer Ethan would hate me for the same reason. Jennifer would hate me. James would just torture me. yeah most of my favorites would.....
A lot of characters in our novel would want to kill me and my co-author, especially the six main ones. We put them through Hell and then put them through something worse. A big part of the Darkquisition series is an exercise in how many bad things we can throw at our characters and how fucked up we can make them. These things can be physical, emotional, spiritual, or psychological. We do this because it makes the series exciting, interesting, unsettling, and memorable.
Probably most of them. I'm not kind to my literary children. xD Actually I have a reputation for writing really depressing and often twisted stories, so I mean I get vicious, especially if you count my short stories. Clarissa was literally scarred for life by her own mother and is forever doomed to a perpetual belief of ugliness. Lily was killed by her uncle at age six and was forced to linger spiritually around her house while both of her parents died, her murderer went forever unpunished, and the house became empty and unfamiliar. Magdalene had her heart ripped out by a witch. And those are just from the ones I've actually shared on here. But I think the one I'd be the most worried about is Katerina. I'm not even halfway done with her story and she's already been through hell. She's got it the worst out of all of my characters, and she also happens to be immortal and could kill me without even trying.
I forced mine through losing parents, traumatic childhoods, bullyingand months of being stuck with no progression in their stories.. One's even become a half-mew (pokemon) hybrid after a car crash killed him(its complicated). If they knew about me, I would probably be in a world of pain right now.
If my characters were real, I would be hunted down, interrogated and then tortured to the point of insanity, and then tortured more. They're a vicious, cold bunch, which makes me very glad they exist only in my head and won't be popping my eyeballs out of their sockets any time soon.
If your characters aren't going through shit, it's not interesting. So hopefully you're doing horrible things to your characters and creating tension and directing the story forward in the most interesting way possible.
So many would want to kill me. It's easier to count the ones who don't care about themselves, but would kill me for hurting the ones they care for. Around 12 so far, heroes AND villains. Scary part, half of them are necromancers, I can't just kill them off...I'm sure that they'll just torture me because at the moment they only exist in my mind. They'll disappear without anything to prove they existed, a fate they already hate.
At least five, including a cameo of a friend of mine. I killed him off. most recently I've caused a full grown man to cry by killing a stray dog he picked up. and geez, let's not get into any short stories I've done.
Accepting the hypothetical situation where my characters would spontaneously materialize into reality from the inner workings of my mind and the words that describe them... I wouldn't die immediately. I mostly have villainous characters. Sadistic bastards. They would torture me slowly and painfully, laughing as I cried and begged for mercy. They would let me go hungry, bit would not let me starve. They would let my throat become parched, but not let me dehydrate. They would heal my wounds at the bare minimum just to rip them open again and rub in salt. Then, they would trap me in a very dark place where I'd never see sunlight again.
And I would be so proud because I taught them well.
It's true, though. That's what my villains would do (okay, maybe two of them would actually kill me on the spot). That's their personality. I don't see how a character whom I've given a dreadful life would jump at the chance to murder me. If its not in their character to kill, I don't understand why they would. Of course, certain emotional situations arise, but even then I have characters who would only kill if it was an accident in an act of self defense. One character I have would, at the most, slap me across the the face and then apologize immediately after simply because it's against her nature to be violent.
I like to think a good number of my characters like me. Like, they might go through some bad stuff, but it usually all works out. But I think my newest character might be the one I'm going to end up putting through the most hell.
Probably none. Few of the minor characters tend towards murder or have bad things happen to them.
I've never written about a protagonist who kills people as if it was no big deal.
And the villains have a lot to thank me for because odds are usually stacked in their favour.
Oh and every character I write share a unique moral code - both heroes and villains - that forbids them from murdering people named Carl. Yup. So assuming they were real in any way shape or form, their code forbids them from killing me no matter what I do to them.
I suppose my characters have pretty terrible lives, but I've never thought of it like I was putting them through it. It's just their life, it's the only way it could have been. If different things had happened, they would be different people, and they wouldn't be my characters.
But, looking at it your way, I don't think any would kill me, as they aren't especially murderous... Well, some of them are, but I think they'd realize that killing me wouldn't change their past. I might be eaten by a hyena, though.
If my characters were real people, looking over my shoulder at my plot summaries for upcoming chapters, let's just say my computer screen would probably be covered in my own brain matter in short order. I don't have a single character who wouldn't want to do me in. That said, I think at least some of them might be smart enough to consider the ramifications of killing their own creator, so that might stay their hands, since without me, nothing would ever change for them, they'd be living the last scene I wrote for them for the rest of their lives.
