You're the killer...
« on: July 25, 2010, 10:54:35 AM »
What's your weapon of choice? And why?

I'll start:

My weapon of choice would be a knife. Or, more accurately, a dagger. I mean, if you are going to kill somebody, you'd better do it with passion. What could be more passionate than plunging a nice, beautifully crafted dagger into your victim's vital organs?  ;D

I hypnotised a tap dancing gorilla to hug you to death. It's also a singing telegram, so listen out for the doorbell.

Poison. Simply so I could sit chatting amiably with them over a drink, then, when they're dead, calmly finish my drink and walk away.

Pitbulls, two of'em. That way I could watch'em play the most twisted version of tug-of-war with the poor bastard's body parts and enjoy the crunching sound of his / her bones being gnawed upon for a few hours.

.50 cal at a thousand yards was always my choice. Gives you a bit of a head start.

My weapon of choice would be a specially trained whale. He would wait patiently for my victim just below the surface of the water, and when the unlucky victim got close enough, the whale would strike him with a harpoon.

I really can't say that I have a specific reason for why I would choose a specially trained whale as my weapon of choice, but since the whale will be using a harpoon, we can go ahead and just say that it is because irony is fun!

nice one, eashort.

Today, my weapon of choice would be a whole arsenal of drugs - both prescription and over the counter stuff. I'd shove them all down my victim's throat, simply because it seems the most appropriate way to get rid of this spammer.  ;D

Capture and imprison them in my basement, chaining them to the wall. Then with a Stanley blade I start the Chinese slow slice torture, breathing in their every emotion as I slowly cut them one gentle slice at a time. Starting with shallow flesh, gradually working my way up to the jugular. Reveling in the stench of fear and the sweet song of pain until after many hours my victim dawdles into death.

Did I mention I am a sociopath? Thatís why I would choose the Stanley blade, so very personal. Customer friendly, thatís me.

I think you have to take the victim and the reason into account.  For some people close up and personal with dagger would be appropriate, whereas others may be so vile that a quick 'clean death' would be wrong.  Why sully a good blade with the blood of the kind of person who should be left to drown - eventually -  in a steep sided pool of their own excrement?

Having said this my philosophy is that if they 'need killing' then they need killing.  The method isn't as important as the result.  I'm sure that one accurate knife thrust would do less damage to my own psyche than torturing someone to death, even if they deserved every last shuddering second.

I've realised my characters generally embrace this same philosophy.  If the bad guy falls into a pool of piranhas  or whatever they wouldn't try and pull him out so he could face come mythical 'legal justice'.  But neither would they lower him in slowly, feet first, a few inches at a time.

 Hooks, wires, and weights. Give me that in an empty warehouse and I'll satisfy any revenge needing relief.

Because I'm such an angel or even a bit of an angle, I would try the whole

kill em with kindness routine

and if that didn't work

lead poisoning with a .44 hollow point slug delivering the lead.

I'd have to kill off my current husband before I could do that again.

HMMMMM
