Hello writers. I was wondering how people feel when characters, especially of the main variety, dies permanently without ever getting a get out of Grave free card. So, no ressurections, no deus ex machina, just dead and gone from a beloved series (like sirius black for example) forever. I'm contemplating on playing with this withing a novel i'm writing, but I'm not sure readers will appreciate it. However, it is necessary for the plot to continue and provides character development for the protagonist. So please the readers, or maintain the plot?
