Inspiration has struck again. This one should be rather complex, but knowing the brainpower of this forum, I'm not going to make any assumptions. Enjoy!

We can do this...
...the hard way?
...or the easy way?
Is the latter even an option?

Does this involve somebody getting beat up?
Does this involve.... a person? multiple persons?
Animals? vegetables? minerals?

My way? no
Your way? no
Our way? no
...being the president's way? no
...or the lobotomized way? no
...to skin a cat? no Probably with a toothbrush. but if it were, then more than likely...

Multiple persons... 2? 3? 4? etc....several people involved. one central character and several secondaries... My apologies, but that's as specific as i can get at the moment.
...or the flacid way? no.

Is the lateral puzzle forum in any way involved in the making of this puzzle?
If you were to make an estimate at the number of secondary character right now, would you go guess three?

Did the central character did something the hard way, which had an effect on all the sondaries? or the other way around?

Hard way.. literally or metaphorical?

does it refer to an everyday life event?

The response to the previous question has vanished, but given that the central character was not called Shrodinger and that he did die during the puzzle...

Was the cause of death...
Misdaventure?
Murder?
Accidental?
Suicide?
Natural Causes?
Old Age?
Illness?
Disease?
Manslaughter?
Execution?
Battle?
Warfare?
