Death of a Hero

    If you are reading a book and a character says they are happier than they have ever been, be careful of ice. Happiness and ice are the way authors kill characters they like. I have seen it a dozen times and I should have been prepared. Years ago a friend of mine died under the ice of the river and the first thought that came to me was the old authors tool of the hero's frozen death. I am going to give up fiction. Falling for a character hurts too much when they are killed off to move the plot along.
