I would want to work alone and would probably remain detached and wouldn't leave any kind of trail or calling card. I wouldn't be the kind of killer who needs fanfare [in fact, I would gladly allow someone else to claim credit for my work.] If I took up such a hobby, it would be because I had a legitimate purpose in doing so; I'd be a vigilante of sorts, which means that I would lead a double life.
Perhaps, like, @Riva, I would go the snipper route, or maybe a pressure point induced heart attack or stroke. Possibly, I would use some centry removal techniques and simply snap their neck and walk away. Maybe I would iron palm the kidneys or the heart. Whatever method I chose it would be the most efficient and effective for the target and the situation.

It would have to be meticulously planned and efficiently conducted. This means while the preparations might take quite some time, the actual killing would be quick and clean. I would endeavor to make each killing look different but relatively unremarkable, so they could not be connected readily and would arouse minimal suspicion: different methods, locations, degree of cleanup, etc. A shabby guy stabbed in a park known for muggings is just another victim in the wrong place at the wrong time. There would be no signatures, no unnecessary mutilation, no trophies - all as under the radar as it can be.

woman keep me out of this. I was only joking about wanting to be a sniper. You however seem to have a lot of repressed feelings going inside that weird NF head of yours. And to be this elaborate?
LOL...Well, if I were going to be bad, I'd want to be good at it.
So, everybody should be thankful I choose to be good
Oh, and just for the record, Riva is not involved in this. I'm leaving him out of it. He has no connections to my methodical psychosis . [feel better now, do ya?

When I was in high school I used to imagine how things would be if someone I knew (immediate family members ...cause they were all I knew) died...
Very truthfully, I feel like I would be a passive killer. I wouldn't actually go about killing people, but if people I knew were in a situation in which they were about to die, then I'd just watch and let them die. I'd travel the world and watch dictators treat their citizens like complete shit until they passed away, I'd watch people starve until their bodies can't take it anymore, I'd watch people abuse drugs for emotional reasons and maybe they'll decide to commit suicide.
Probably the one who would kill really impulsively and aggressively, under some real hard emotions and passions that I wouldn't handle. Never cold blooded, or detailed...I would just do some mess and then cry out and scream and get caught right away I guess
The first one would have to be in the heat of the moment.
All consecutive kills would be to cover my trail.
My first thought.
If I go into motivation, though, revenge out of guilt would be the most likely. "If I would have been there when X killed my beloved Y, maybe I could have prevented it. Just maybe, even though X was driving a tank and I was on Mars at the time. I must atone by taking out X's entire [insert cult martial arts movie-style gang name] Clan to avenge him/her."
