You're almost reluctant to kill them off? I knowingly started a story where I fully intended to kill off four on screen characters (hey, it's a horror story. What do you expect?). And as I got further and further into the story, I got more and more attached to my characters... and now I'm just trying to avoid the parts where I have to kill them. I know I'll have to do it sometime but it's just so difficult to bring myself to write their deaths. Is that a bad thing?
