Default Dear Characters

I found this on Figment and I love it. You write a letter to your characters saying your sorry for their terrible lives and back stories. Here's mine:

Dear Hazel,

I'm sorry that no one likes you. I'm sorry that your only friend is that creepy guy, Tom Riddle. I'm sorry that I made you the freak. I'm sorry about Irene, I hate her too. I honestly want to hug you right now. Just so you know, I give all my characters terrible lives, so it's not just you. But, I have a mean side, a Character Torturing side.

Your Creator,
Tess

Dear Flix,

I'm sorry that I have to torture you and spit you up with black blood, letting demons into the tower which you are captured in, and I'm sorry that nobody can love you except yourself. I'm sorry that your backstory is terrible and that how you entered Metallica doesn't make sense at all, and I'm also sorry that if I'm being rude to you I always have to act as if you are already dead. But I'm mostly sorry that you're always captured.

Your creator,
Max.

Dear Noel,

When I actually write the book, I'm sorry I make you a weirdo with a blood disorder thingy. And I'm sorry I make you get captured and contaminated by Kitlyn. And I'm sorry you also get captured by humans and physically tortures you. And I'm sorry Michael dies before your very eyes. And I'm sorry your dad goes missing and your mom disowns you. And I'm sorry Wren, Gyp and Hollow also disown you as well and become your enemies.

Haha ur life sucks dude

Love, even though I torture you mercilessly, C.T.

Love this idea. I seriously have a lot of apologizing to do to my characters.

Dear Kristina,

I'm sorry I killed your mom when you were eight, then had your dad drop you off at a crappy orphanage with a crappy administrator. I'm sorry you were abused and almost killed in a foster home, and I'm sorry that I killed your best and only friend when you were thirteen. I'm sorry I made you meet Colton only so that he could abandon you at the mercy of people who wanted you dead. I'm so sorry I'm so freaking cruel.

Your creator,
Tori

To elaborate on that:
I'm sorry that your boyfriend died of cancer. I'm sorry that you're going to have to start working another job because your sister can't pay for your rent anymore. Jesus, I'm sorry you have to live in an apartment in the first place. I'm sorry that you won't get to go to Dahlia's eighth birthday party, or her ninth, or her tenth, or her fourteenth even though by then your parents are getting tired of forgetting you. I'm sorry that you missed senior prom because you were sitting next to Matthew in the hospital and reading him Harry Potter. I'm sorry that, even though you can let go and you end up happily married with an adoptive daughter and two dogs you can never get his face out of your head and when you kiss your husband before you go to sleep you can't help seeing Matthew's eyes staring back at you.
