If you think, because of something happening to a FICTIONAL character, that you need to type out a death threat and SEND it to someone: You. Need. Help. If you follow my twitter, you know I’ve taken a devilish bit of delight in re-posting these (mainly because they usually make the OP look like a raving loon– and, for a time, that WAS funny to me.) Well… That’s over. From now on, they ALL get reported. The End.”
