Now here comes my problematic:
B, C, D and X. This means 4 main characters dying in about what? 300 pages? that's a huge massacre. I don't want to lose my audience by doing this(i've seen what happened to the Movie Final Fantasy the Spirits within). So i hope u can help me get a solution for this.
I already have thought of 2 ways:
1st way - some sort of premonition in Greek's Tragedy Way. The sequel could start like A-Person narrating in a monologue (starting the book2 from it's actualy ending)-"My name is "A-Person" and i'm the last survivor of my tribe...each other is now dead." - which kinda gives the audience the expectation of something really bad is going to happen, and they someway fell powerless as they read the whole thing happen in front of their eyes. Tought they know it will happen, they dont want it to.
the second way is to left the narrative go by itself, kill each character in it's respective time, not mentioning it by any means that a tragedy will happen. And when it happens, it will be completly unexpected for the reader, which kinda gives the sense of massacre and brutality/reality of what is to live in that world. The problem of this second one, is that it might be too much killing for the reader to handle, and i might lose readers here(which i dont want too :) ).
So, hope u mates can give me good ideas/suggestions on the better way to solve this problems. All are welcome.
