* [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/the-7-most-elaborate-dick-moves-in-online-gaming-history_p5/ This Cracked article]] details the case of a game (AsheronsCall) where a group of players prevented all others from reaching a boss and made it grow stronger by allowing it to kill them. The admins descended, recruited great heroes from the players, gave themselves the best equipment, and... managed to beat the blockade on the third try.

* The play ''SixCharactersInSearchOfAnAuthor'' explores what happens when the author of an unfinished play dies before its completion. Two of the characters are doomed to die, over and over again because the play into which they were written never made it to the stage. * A 2008 Viennese production of ''Madam Butterfly'' featured the composer, Giacomo Puccini, as a character. He observed the events onstage, occasionally sung lines meant for the male lead, and was haunted by the spirits of the tragic heroines from his other operas as he made the decision to kill Butterfly. It was presumably intended to be a commentary on the cruelty of the audience for wanting to see characters tortured and killed for the sake of drama, and how the composer's hands were tied from making a better, kinder story because of the demands of the audience.
