** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1230 ("A Hero is Born")]]. SCP-1230 is a book that produces full-immersion dream worlds where the reader is the main character. These dream worlds are primarily adventure settings which are tailored to the reader's tastes and expectations and [[YearInsideHourOutside years can pass inside them even though the reader usually sleeps no longer than normal]]. One researcher, an avid tabletop and video game player, used SCP-1230, fell asleep for fifteen hours (which prompted a security alert) and then re-awoke in medical and then immediately excused himself into the bathroom and committed suicide. When another researcher went inside the book to ask what happened, the book's consciousness (taking the form of a gentle old man) [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone tearfully]] informed him that the guy got completely enamoured in his fantasy world and tried to pull an IChooseToStay, and kept it going for two centuries before the book simply couldn't keep it going any longer and booted him into the real world.

Contrast FaceDeathWithDignity, where one chooses to face the music (and the bullets); BungledSuicide and InterruptedSuicide, where the character's attempt fails or is stopped by somebody else; HappilyFailedSuicide, where the character is grateful to be alive after all, and SuicideIsPainless, where the character has no reason to commit suicide, but does so anyway. Also contrast {{Seppuku}}, a form of suicide usually associated with {{Samurai}}, which is done to retain honor if all other choices mean violating it.

* In the last painting of ''Art/MarriageALaMode'', already ashamed of having brought about her husband's death in a duel, the Countess is broken completely by the news that Silvertongue has been hanged at Tyburn for the crime. She poisons herself with laudanum which she has bribed a dim-witted manservant (the man in the loose-fitting, incorrectly-buttoned coat) to buy for her. Since this makes what remains of the Earl's money forfeit to the state, the only money her father can get back from her dowry is from selling her wedding ring, which he is busy removing.
