Postby irishelk » Sun May 07, 2017 12:08 pm

His only motive was to make them mad, and he did. But he also got revenge from beyond the grave.

Mad: angry? Insane? Irritated? Disorganized? Unpredictable? Did he want to make them mad as revenge? Them: H? A? M? Relatives? Is a will relevant? Did he succeed beyond his expectations? Did he get revenge on them from beyond the grave? On someone else?

Was the action he took to anger them directly tied to his death? Did he die shortly after taking the action? Minutes? Hours? Days? Years?

Is the revenge he took dependent upon having made his relatives mad? Does he get revenge on one person? More than one? His killer?

Is time period relevant? Is this a true story?

Relevant who killed him? Why? Were his relatives still mad at him when he died? Did the relatives play a part in the revenge on the killer? Was the killer punished only because he made his relatives mad? Was the revenge that the killer was: caught? Found guilty? Punished by law? Killed by someone? Beaten up? Otherwise physically injured? Financially injured? Prevented from accomplishing what the murder was meant to accomplish?

Relevant who killed him? Yes. Why? Yes. Were his relatives still mad at him when he died? Irrel, probably not. Did the relatives play a part in the revenge on the killer? Yesish. Was the killer punished only because he made his relatives mad? Not because they're mad, but because of how he made them mad. Was the revenge that the killer was: caught? Found guilty? Punished by law? Yes, all of this. Killed by someone? Beaten up? Otherwise physically injured? Financially injured? Prevented from accomplishing what the murder was meant to accomplish? And this, no to rest.

I'm gonna call him Ned, if that's okay.

Was Ned aware that his killer would be caught and punished because Ned had made his own relatives angry? Did Ned make them angry with this in mind?

Was Ned a young man, middle aged, old? Was he exiled from his family? Was he a "black sheep?" Are the killer and Ned's relations' anger related? Did the relatives send Ned's killer after him?

Was he killed for: profit? Revenge? Love issues? To prevent him from doing something relevant? Did he know his life was in danger? Of so, did he know it when he made them mad?
