It's pretty accepted that there are stages to grieving. David Grossman, in his book On Killing
postulates that there are stages when it comes to killing that everyone goes through as well. This piece is a series of drabbles based on the stages of killing.
Very vague spoilers for "Grave Danger."
NOTE: It isn't plagiarism if I'm copying from myself. I originally used this structure in another story, called Steps
, in Numb3rs fandom. But Gil started poking me halfway through that story, wanting to explore it for himself as well. Greedy bastard.
