Kill off your main characters. Please. Not as a cheap ending, or right at the beginning for shock value. Kill them in the middle, and do it well. Leave every character reeling and unable to comprehend what happens next. Leave your antagonists without a solid enemy, wondering if they've gone too far. When you shatter the heart of a story, a thousand tiny shards will spilt away and grow. Focus on the side characters; the supporting cast, the love interest. Think about how they would change, break and reform. Think about the growth, the quiet moments of reflection and depth. You don't have to do it, but think about it. If your story stops with a single character, your story is weak. Kill the protagonist. - )
Bi Morally grey: A character who does too much bad to be a good person, but does too much good to be a bad person. Sympathetic villain: A character who is a bad person, but whose backstory/ character arc makes you feel sorry for or sympathetic towards them. Anti-hero: A character who does bad things to achieve a good goal. Anti-villain: A character who does bad things to achieve a goal that they believe to be good, but is actually messed up. Just plain annoying: A character who does bad things to achieve a bad goal but has one throwaway line about a hard childhood that is expected to put them into one of the aforementioned categories when in reality it just makes them annoying sweetest-honeybee Ah, it's all clear now - )
