As an amateur author, all I have to say about this is that Satan and I don't have tea at all. In reality, I write with the intent that a reader becomes emotionally attached to the character, seeing them as a paragon of what a person should be, and then I kill the character off, hoping that the reader feels the very pain I felt during the inspiration process. Along with that, the reader learns a very valuable lesson that nothing is perfect, that no good deed goes unpunished, that no fictional character is really worse attaching oneself to, and that reality is a very harsh and cold mistress.
Such is the way of the literary assassin.

For me it varies. I've had some characters die that even I felt really sorry for, but at the same time, I've been glad to kill off some ******* .
For example, in one story I wrote, the main character has a flashback in which he watches his sister die, so he kills his mom and dad later. I felt pretty bad about his sister, I laughed at his dad, and I nearly wept at his mom because it wasn't really her fault.

In my story, the main character watches his son, his wife(pregnant with 2nd child) and his in-laws get killed in front of him. I was indeed laughing after writing that part. Spoiler alert: he will die brutally at the end

I actually felt really bad when I killed a girl for one of my stories.

She was a bitch, but when I killed her, I thought "What will her parents think? She was a little girl once, so happy and goofy and cute. But I killed her. I took her away from her parents"

And then I cried.

Rowling actually planned to kill off Arthur Weasley when he was attacked by the snake but she couldn't bring herself to do it

Well I know that when I kill a character, it's usually one I created with the anticpation to kill for plot development, and for another character to gain depth through the death.

So I don't get upset because I knew that they were going to die and that their death had meaning, but for a reader, they don't expect it, nor do they know what significance will come of it, so they do get upset.

Being a writer, I take pride in my work. But I can say...I have cried when I killed the main character. I was so proud of my story when I finished it. Then I laid my head down and cried....

well when i write, i do find it hard to kill one of the lead characters but it's usually crucial to the plot
