Dear character, we hardle knew ye…

Oh, dear character, you were one of the shining stars of the plot from the very beginning. Although you had no name, your personality was clear, your fate already written down. Many were to be your deeds, how great your accomplishments. Your friends adored you, even though you occasionally irritated them. Your enemies respected you, even while hating your guts. Integral were you to be in the plot, moving it forward and helping the grand climax reach its peak…

Then the story changed…

I'm sorry, dear character, but the story has taken another sharp turn. Alas, you were not able to keep up. With the pieces of plot left behind, so were you. With the pivotal changes in the plot, others have taken over. And yes, even new characters have risen up to accomplish events that once belonged to you. Your laughter will no longer be heard, your lows will not affect those that were once your closest friends. Your former enemies will not know you, their attention will be on others. The final climax must build without your help.

Please do not hate these characters, whether they be old or new, former friend or enemy. Do not mourn the story that once was. It is building into something even better than you were once apart of. Someday you may surface again, but in another time and place, among new friends and foes. Look forward to that day instead.

Farewell lost Character.
