Well one could argue that writers are gods of a sort (at least upon their own realm of vellum.) With the press of buttons or the flourish of a pen they create civilisations, worlds, many lives. With the press of buttons or the flourish of a pen they destroy civiliations, worlds, and many lives. Writers can often be cruel beings, placing their characters through more anguish and suffering than a mortal being should experience. They may claim that it is for the characters to remerge from the furnace stronger and greater, and they may be right, but their actions are oft still ones of cruelty. Place these creative and bloodthirsty beings in opposition to others in such an arena of death and it could be a battle of the ages...or the three of them just throw pens and pencils at each other until everyone gets bored and goes home. Probably the latter.
