Do you know the most common cause of death for fictional characters? It’s not sword fights or tuberculosis or even The Long Winter. No, it’s RELATIONSHIPS. Characters are constantly dying of Being in a Relationship, or else they’re dying of Someone Else Being in a Relationship.
Some relationships work out and everything’s great. Others just cause problems for everyone involved. It’s the reason why I’ve spent much of my life single (surely the only reason), and it’s the reason why I believe the following fictional characters would’ve been better off if they had stayed single also.
