I need the amazing brilliance of the Ask.com people.

I'm writing a short story about a teenaged boy who is insane or crazy or whatever. So I know that i want him to die in the end but i can not think of anything else that i want to happen in it. So i thought well half the people on here are crazy any way, so why not ask real insane people? Sooo...help?

You could possibly write about how the boy was teased, taunted, or bullied. Or something about a teenage mental illness. Drugs could work too.

Since it sounds like a sad book add a nice innocent girl who loves him and he sort of loves her back, and she tries to save him but he dies in the end.

Well my first piece of advice is not to kill off your main character. 1, it shows weakness in writing skills, and 2, it will make the readers pretty fricking angry.
Second, I think that there should be several bad events leading up to the death. I'm not going to say what, because that's your choice.

He could murder his family and then the whole story be about his ways of avoiding the police, but then he'a shot down by the chief police officer.

How about this? ... He walks into a 1st grade classroom aiming a gun at the 6 year kids, and before he pulls the trigger they all jump on him and rip him to shreds.

Hang on, I'm going to get my amazing brilliance.........ok got something. He's a professional hitman for the Italian mob. A hit goes wrong, he's set up, and he gets his noggin shoved into some kind of industrial acid which eats away his head, and thats how he dies.

Why call us brilliant, then insane? But I'll try to help. He could find a clue to a top-secret governmental organisation experiment or something, and then because he knows about it he has to be kept quiet so after he figures it out he goes into hiding from the government who are trying to kill him and in the end they find him. Don't directly say that he dies, end the story with a gun at his head or something, it makes it more suspenseful. Just a warning though, some people don't like it when they read a long story and the main character dies at the end, so keep it short and sweet if possible. Happy writing!

Im an expert on the insanity subject...
You could base it off a 17 year old that joined the Marines right out of high school, survived his tours, and slowly lost his mind after PTSD ate him up, and he eventually offed himself

Maybe model it after that cop who wanted to just clear his name but went on a murder spree and dies in a fire of glory and bullets. Then later on after he is gone, the people actually find out he was right in the first place & they were wrong! The authorities were actually the crazy ones!!

Well I kinda find that offensive to people who may actually be crazy you should have probably explained that a little better some people may have taking it the wrong way.

Who are you calling crazy? Only the FBI and Ringling Brothers can call me crazy. Have the boy kidnap a poodle, take it to the top of the Eiffel Tower (the tip) and throw it, with bungee attached. Then the boy will use the dog as an anchor and swing around the tower, loudly singing "Camptown Races" in German. When he reaches the bottom, preferably disemboweling the poodle in the process, he'll hijack a balloonsalesman's cart. He will then drive it to the Alamo, reenacting the famous battle all by himself. The police of Texas will then brutally murder him in a grisly firefight in which he throws water balloons, filled with chili. His body will explode shortly after death, spraying the police and other onlookers in M&Ms (peanut).

i like the stealing a balloonsalesman cart idea....and why peanut? Nobody likes peanut m&ms
Report as
Peanut M&Ms are heavier and larger than regular ones. And would you really eat anything that came out of someone else? I wouldn't.
Report as
not if they were M&Ms....i don't really like chocolate, the people in the skittles commercials do it....

I was going to say Skittles, but why waste Skittles?

Middle boy with three sisters. He was a gifted genius with talents in art, math, engineering, humor and athletics. His dad was gay and mom abusive, both religious zealots. By the time he was 12 he already was drinking and smoking pot and getting regular beatings. Is that a bad start to your nightmare story? Can you fix it?

Don't have him die in the end, no sequel. Have him escape from psych hospital and meet up or even stalk a girl he met there.

Do a Black Swan thing- have him be crazy like Nina and die performing- like a Billy Elliot Black Swan mash up!!!! Little boy who wants to be a dancer, is driven crazy by his teachers and his mental insecurity, and dies on stage after performing the ballet Romeo and Juliet. There. Perfect.
