…Oh god poor Abbey.

Yeah I kinda already figured this out… 12 pages ago
Skyler April 2, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Wow April 2, 2012, 12:01 AM EST.
Some things are better left unsaid. But not this. This is no way to find out. Poor Abbey.

No please no… :*(

Can’t say I didn’t see this coming but… truly, there never was a crueler April fool’s joke.
Pear April 2, 2012, 12:02 AM EST.
I had a feeling this was it…but I didn’t want to be right. Or did I? Cause plan B was worse than this….
Dr-Gobbles-MD April 2, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Now for a real comment. I was honestly almost expecting them to show up at a mental hospital, or a hospital in general, and his mother no longer be mentally sane, or be in some sort of coma from the head trauma. But this really did surprise me. But in a way its good, for both Abbey and his sister. They can now begin the moving on process from their past, and stop wondering about their mother, and where she is and how she is doing, and why she hasn’t found them yet. I hope Janet can tell poor little Molly that her mother didn’t just forget about them, and loved them to the very end.
Keo April 2, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
…why are they making a pit stop at a graveyard?
Edit: Oh, wait. Suddenly everything makes sense. I was having trouble differentiating between the speakers in the sixth panel.
causticAntilogy April 2, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Ah, i get it, by going to see his mother, he means her grave. Does Molly know too? I wonder. And if this is just the pit stop, then who is he actually going to meet?
Anbellz April 2, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Not sure if serious about april fools….
But finding out about the death of a parent like this?? Ouch… Just ouch, something like that isnt somethin’ you just shake off.
Seraphara April 2, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
I CALL STORY INCONSISTANTCY FOUL!
In an earlier page, Janet asked Abby if he’d like to stay the night with his mom. Why would he spend the night in a snowy graveyard?
Yes, it’s semantics, but it’s justified semantics.
Curtisimo April 2, 2012, 12:03 AM EST.
Keo…That is what I was thinking.
Dr-Gobbles-MD April 2, 2012, 12:04 AM EST.

pikachan April 2, 2012, 12:07 AM EST.
Hmm, if Abby’s mom is really dead, it seems rather insensitive for Janet to have been singing in the car on the way there.
Avic April 2, 2012, 12:07 AM EST.
She didn’t want him to know. Oh my god Janet. Wtf. Wtf wtf wtf wtf. If he’s going to find out then why lie?
Kikren April 2, 2012, 12:07 AM EST.
Still April Fools day here. Gotta keep the faith that maybe… she’s alive.

ow… sad i feel bad
Lionesst April 2, 2012, 12:15 AM EST.
That’s just terrible…
Though, doesn’t this mean his father might have been given the death penalty? His father would certainly deserve it, but…I can’t imagine finding out your mom is dead like this. This is way beyond depressing.
I’m expecting Abbey to have huge meltdown…I know I would.
Randommoron5 April 2, 2012, 12:16 AM EST.
please let it be abbies dad in the ground.
King_Crimson April 2, 2012, 12:17 AM EST.

what if her mother works there and shes not dead?its the last hope to abbye dont you think?
lucioMJ April 2, 2012, 12:19 AM EST.
She’s never uploaded a page before midnight my time. April fooooools.

Denial can only get you so far, until the truth punches you in the face…
SXR123 April 2, 2012, 12:20 AM EST.
The case of the appearing and disappearing Daisy and Janet!
Nissie April 2, 2012, 12:20 AM EST.
I am glad not everyone jumped on the bandwagon of Abby’s mom being in the ground. I hope to Ammy that the gravestone says “Abraham DoucheKnuckle Sr.” instead of “Charlotte Aluras.” (Last names are made up, btw.)
Renadt April 2, 2012, 12:22 AM EST.
Well, I certainly didn’t expect this, it’s the kind of sad twist that is expected but at the same time… well, you can’t look at this and not feel tears on your cheek or a pang in your heart. Abbey, you poor soul, I would be in denial too if my mother was a gravedigger. Hopefully time will heal this wound.
Ace April 2, 2012, 12:22 AM EST.
Oh good, we were all right.
And by “Oh good” I mean “Well Abbey, what did you expect? Her being in a mental hospital would be even more heartbreaking.”
Titanium Dragon April 2, 2012, 12:23 AM EST.
Dang, I thought Abbey had really lost it there for a second. Although at least he may eventually have some closesure that his mom is in a better place. Sadly, if anyone were to ever make a remark about his mom he would probably rip them apart or curl up in a corner for days. Also, I’ve got a bad feeling that Molly will simply keep making presents to cope and Abbey will unleash a bunch of anger on her.
ZZ April 2, 2012, 12:24 AM EST.
Ooooohhhhh!!!! She dead! She’s dead and gone, dead and gone! She’s buried six feet down, she’s in the god damn ground. He’s mothers dead, his hand are stained red. Now he’s gonna cry, I’m gonna laugh so much I die. Ha ha hahaha hahaha hahahahaha.
Slenderman April 2, 2012, 12:25 AM EST.
Can’t be true! She is NOT dead! No no no! She must work at the semitary, or she and Janet agreed to meet there! It’s a lie!
Wow April 2, 2012, 12:27 AM EST.

Sonata April 2, 2012, 12:43 AM EST.
the staying the night thing- she said in a hotel, she didn’t saying anything about “with the mom”…. :\
I do find it confusing that she would be so cheerful though if his mother was truly dead…..
she seemed decently optimistic, and so did Daisy. ( granted Daisy may not have been told )
I guess Janet could have been trying to not let him anxt….. but….. if she was going to tell him anyway, she should have ( and surely would have? ) actually TOLD him, not driven him to a grave and been like “hey look.”
……… right? D :
ofcourse from THIS context it does imply that he just saw his mother’s grave….. unless Taeshi makes it an epic twist, it turns out that it really is a pit stop, and that this is his father’s grave.
I doubt that though o.o;

G4N April 2, 2012, 12:48 AM EST.
Oh no… Poor Abbey. This is the worst news place they could have stopped for his psyche.
NBbowler April 2, 2012, 12:48 AM EST.
I knew it…
Naity April 2, 2012, 12:50 AM EST.
So, she did die……… I was hoping she was alive, but I guess not. Poor Abbey, trying to reject what happened. I wonder if she died in that incident, or if she committed suicide…. I mean, Sr. looked so sure he killed her and ran away, but one would also panic (depending on the individual) and leave/run away when the victim is unconscious, right? I kind of get the feeling that the lamp in the head is what killed her, because I don’t think she really had a reason to kill herself….. aside from realizing her husband cheated on her, but that really doesn’t seem like enough. Regardless, women from abused households do die, that much is clear….. just like this page is showing that Abbey’s mom is probably dead (I’ll stay in denial and believe that this is an agreed meeting place, for Sr’s grave or something. until the next update enforces the fact that she’s as dead …… I REALLY HATE ABBEY SR. AND I HOPE HE ENDS UP AS A HOBO IF HE’S RELEASED FROM PRISON). Poor Molly, It’ll break her heart when she finds out she’s dead. She’s totally going to keep making those gifts until she’s told her mom’s dead, isn’t she?
HOW COME THEIR SOCIAL WORKER (or whoever is in charge of Abbey and Molly’s case) NEVER TOLD THEM ABBEY’S MOM IS DEAD, OR WHATEVER HAPPENED TO HER?? Didn’t anyone in charge of their case think it would be a good idea to tell them?? Wait, is there a dead penalty for murder wherever the BBC characters are?? Because a thought just occurred to me; what if Sr. got the death penalty for killing Abbey’s mom? O.O
Still, I love this story, even with moments like this. Good job, comic artist lady, BBC is totally one of the best webcomics I’ve ever read :3
Subaru April 2, 2012, 12:54 AM EST.
Does the state have the death penalty for murder?
GOD… DAMN… YOU… ABE… SENIOR… TO HELL!!!!!!!!!! GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!!!!!!!

Minty Winter April 2, 2012, 12:56 AM EST.
I hate to admit it… but I’m pretty sure I called this one.

Honestly, one of the best things about this is that his mother won’t be hurt by anyone anymore.

I was expecting this. Not very nice that it went down this way, but it was the most logical outcome.
Surprised at the extreme denial he’s going through though. Like he’s trying to forget what he already knows. Just goes to show how much trauma he has.
Ignis April 2, 2012, 1:14 AM EST.
This one… is so sad… ;.;
PurpleLeaf April 2, 2012, 1:18 AM EST.
Sadness is hard to describe, so I will write it in poetry form!
Self denying Abbey
Said his life wasn’t too shabby
He visited his mum one day
To light his souls way
To find she was only a grave
And Molly poor little
Her feelings were brittle
She made a gift for each day
Since her mum passed away
To keep the fan from meeting the shittle

Eveco April 2, 2012, 2:16 AM EST.
disappointed, very predictable huh, start new chapter already pleases
pampers April 2, 2012, 2:31 AM EST.
I’m really, REALLY shocked. As Keo commented, I was expecting that Abbey’s mother would be in some kind of health care center, in coma or mentally insane. But this was really shocking.
Abbey’s expression in panel 7 shows exactly the denial he has tried. For him it cannot be possible that his mother is dead.
Now this open a new wave of questions. Why did Janet and Kevin act like that? Why did they hid the kids the truth? Why saying them her mother “Had to get better before she could see them again”? It would have been a lot less traumatic for them to know the trueth from the beginning.
Volgrand April 2, 2012, 2:40 AM EST.
Oh Abbey. This character is the one I relate to the most, and for him to see this is just really really sad. As said above, I also thought his mother would be in a mental hospital, but this is just really sad. I have a feeling the next few panels are going to be really emotional…
End April 2, 2012, 2:45 AM EST.
HEY KID I FOUND YOUR MOM WANNA GO SEE HER AND MEET HER AND HAVE A LONG AWAITED CONVERSATION WITH HER BECAUSE I TOTALLY KNOW WHERE SHE IS LAYING I MEAN SITTING PROBABLY WHO REALLY KNOWS WHAT AN ALIVE PERSON IS DOING ALL THE TIME WHO IS NOT DEAD RIGHT?

Darf14 April 2, 2012, 2:49 AM EST.
I’m thinking Abbey fell may have fallen asleep in the car and this page is just a dream. I can’t wait to see how it plays out…

Rosemarie April 2, 2012, 3:13 AM EST.
Abbey, I know what it is like to go through a process like that. I knew how horrible it felt to have found out something that I would not expect - something I wished was not true. It is hard as far as I can say, and it will take a toll on you for a while before you can put your emotions back together. It does not mean that you cannot be happy, for life goes on. Trust me, after a while, you will start missing your mother less and less as time passes(even if you suddenly start crying a year later by remembering it) and eventually you will realize that she was there to see you care for her. For as long as that is embedded into her heart, that’s all that matters.
A.T. April 2, 2012, 3:21 AM EST.
Oh god no
Laufente April 2, 2012, 3:22 AM EST.
I wouldn’t be surprised if they were just meeting her there, due to her visiting someone else.
But with 8 pages left it’s doubtful.
Ah well, here’s to hoping.
Convict April 2, 2012, 3:23 AM EST.
Maybe it’s his father’s grave? Oh, who am I kidding
Laufente April 2, 2012, 3:23 AM EST.
Wouldn’t it have been a better idea to tell him outright beforehand, rather than let him get his hopes up?
Either that, or she’s now working in a cemetery.
Binky April 2, 2012, 3:23 AM EST.
As someone who lost his mother last Sunday (having them die 2 ft in front of you while your trying to save them has never made me feel more helpless)
This comic made me feel real weepy. At work though so cant vent (
jimbob April 2, 2012, 3:27 AM EST.
oh…..wow….just….wow….i i can’t even begin to articulate how much this hurt me let alone hurt poor abbey….i mean….you kinda hold out hope holding your breath hoping and praying and just when you’ve convinced yourself that your gut instinct is wrong >bam< big karmic slap to the face….though it does leave me the question (as horrible as it is) is her death a recent thing? or has janet known all along and just waited to tell abbey when she felt he was old enough to handle the truth?
Luna April 2, 2012, 3:32 AM EST.
this did not surprise me in the least, i pretty much figured she was dead, i am named for the god of death, afterall.
maybe now this kid will start crying and get the hell over his past… or he’ll sink even further into denial and go insane, and lose everything he has in his new life.
Thanatos April 2, 2012, 3:37 AM EST.
Called it months ago , but still is sad she is death , all i want to know is if he will break down even more or if he will finaly acept things as they are
DrackeStalenTorgen April 2, 2012, 3:47 AM EST.
sorry for double-posting, but i can’t edit my message for some reason, the edit button has once again vanished lately…
so, wait, was this really uploaded before midnight, like i read in the comments?
if so, this likely is an april fool’s joke… it does seem odd, the inconsistency mentioned by one person, and janet singing so happily in the car, and would she really be cruel enough to tease him like that?
i’m going to assume it’s his father who is dead, and his mother is visiting the grave, or something.
…better yet, i’m going to assume EVERYTHING.
there, i covered all possibilities with one word, so no matter what, i’ll be right!
Thanatos April 2, 2012, 3:48 AM EST.

Still, I can’t help but feel bad for Abbey.

I’m a little sad because i wanted molly and her brother to find their mothe in an hospital recovering, but in the end why did it had to be a sad end. And poor molly she always made presents for her mother so that one day she could meet her again and gave it to her. Why did it had to be this way?
Mia Meow April 2, 2012, 5:25 AM EST.
I wonder. Was this an April fools prank, did Abbey somehow actually not know his mom was dead, or is this some weird misinterpretation of events and it is actually a pit stop. :?
Lake April 2, 2012, 5:33 AM EST.
Mia Meow April 2, 2012, 5:35 AM EST.
That’s so terrible, coming all of this way, and for what? to find out that she is dead?!
Your comic has always tugged on my heartstrings Taeshi, but never like this….
Doodlebug April 2, 2012, 5:38 AM EST.
Wow. Just Wow.
This really just took a huge U-Turn and went in the exact opposite direction of what I thought.
Excellent writing Taeshi. I applaud you. :|
Sven April 2, 2012, 5:45 AM EST.
she probably work there or something… I DONT WANT HER TO DIE!!!
umad? April 2, 2012, 5:55 AM EST.
Two possible outcomes for Sr. in mind should Abbey’s mom is as good as six feet under:
1. He’s already dead via death penalty
2. He’s still in jail
Now if SR. is still alive, Abbey would either make him regret what he’s done and scar him the same way he scarred him, or Abbey would snap and kill him with an unfortunate consequence (in which ‘unfortunate consequence’ is usually, and I might regret saying it, BCB’s specialty proven by Mike with Lucy).

Especially his own wife, then he was ready to give up his kids for some
girl her wife doesn’t even know. Then he hits her with no reason…
Don’t worry Abbey, your mom may be gone, but you have friends. You have Janet, Daisy, Molly, and your friends, they will support you. So stay strong!

Ouch…I kinda knew that his mother would be dead, but I didn’t think they were driving directly to the cemetery. That’s really friggin’ rough on him…
You know, my mother was also heavily abused in a lot of her previous relationships, and even in one or two of her previous marriages. She finally stopped taking it. I’ve never even met my biological father. As of now, she has the perfect guy for her, who is more of a father to me and my siblings than any of our previous fathers. I love them both to death.
I could’ve been Abbey…

I’m kinda ****** at the super depressing twist this comic has taken in the past few chapters. I mean, it’s ok to give the readers something to think about every now and then, but really? Out of all the bad endings you choose the most depressing of them all, why? Doesnt your characters have the right to be happy even when their creator is feeling bad?
This better be some kind of cliffhanger with another twist, but for now, I’m done with the Bitter part of Bittersweet candy bowl, if I wanted angst I’d pay attention to the news.
And don’t be offended (since I know people are gonna jump at me), since I have not said that “this comic is bad” or “this sucks” or anything else. If this is your sauce, amazing, enjoy it. It’s just not my sauce anymore.
And dont use this as an excuse to feel bad about yourself as a person @Taeshi. Because, y’know, I’ve seen Taeshi Diary and I’ve read you reacted bad about these kind of comments in the past. It has NOTHING to do with you or your personality or your behaviour. I bet my pants you’re a sweetheart.
JKrisom April 2, 2012, 7:55 AM EST.
This chapter had been planned for years. It’s almost a part of Abbey’s conception as a character.
This comic will be primarily downbeat for the next year or so, so if you are looking for gag-a-day funny animal updates you will continue to be disappointed. This is not a result of random whims and feelings, it’s the way the plot has been charted out for a long time.

ironic how the song “world around me” by escape the fate was playing as i saw this page. man, talk about a huge emotional arrow to the chest. This is going to be the start of a very long healing process for him. Good thing daisy is there for support, otherwise I doubt he’ll hanlde it in the most negative way possible

I kinda had this coming, if I read correctly the message this post portrayed. I feel sad and at the same time terrible for not feeling a tear coming after this. It’s been a while, after all; anything could have happened in between. On that note, anything can happen until this is absolutely confirmed. After all, there was at least one case which had proved to be misleading.
Until then, Abbey, you have my sympathy.

How will abbey live when he thinks that what he is turnin into is a murderer?
I hope this is an April fools day joke because you got your whole loving audience here

Why would Abbey’s mother ask him if he wanted to stay the night if his mother was dead?

Abbey is strong. He’ll be alright in the end especially with Daisy there to help him. Janet did her best and honestly its not her fault so she should be able to comfort him too. I dont know why, but I get the feeling that this whole experience will only strengthen Abbey’s relationships with people and make him more at peace with his life.

Oh no…. I said that out loud when I read this page…. Wow, what a bittersweet way to kick off my day : / Poor Abbey…. that’s a terrible way to find out his mother is dead… I’m kind of disappointed in Janet for driving him all the way there just to show him a cemetery; it’s almost cruel….Aghhh ((

Jooshbox April 2, 2012, 12:47 PM EST.
Wow, I never saw this coming. Personally having outlived both my parents by Abbey’s age, I know how much it can hurt, but I can’t begin to imagine what it must be like to feel abandoned by your parents for so long only to find out that they’ve passed on. Now I’m all the more impatient to find out about his father. I really hope he’s lived a rough life and realized how awful he was, even if it’s too late. He’s got to have SOME redeeming quality, right? I hope.
novascottch April 2, 2012, 12:48 PM EST.
I’m going to be sceptical for now…and assume this isn’t true. Perhaps he’s dreaming or it’s his father whos dead.

Shangy April 2, 2012, 12:50 PM EST.
And Davey, it’s better if he can see for himself. Sometimes just hearing it without any tangible or visible evidence isn’t the kind of resolution one needs. And this way, he’s almost kind of seeing her again so he can say a real goodbye and move forward. And don’t you think he’d ask to her grave anyway after finding out she was dead? I know I would. You just have to put yourself in their place and think about how you would handle it and what you’d want to do about it.
novascottch April 2, 2012, 12:51 PM EST.

Well, after getting over the initial “Noooooooo”-ness I’m now thinking that Charlotte can’t really be dead, if she were, Janet would be a HUGE dick, being all “HEY let’s go see your mom, I found her so you can spend the night next to her snowy grave! Lalala, don’t mind me singing in the car, it’s not like that’s inappropriate because your mom’s dead or something, haha, oh wait she is, MERRY CHRISTMAS!”

Chocothunda April 2, 2012, 2:31 PM EST.
Damn I was right in the worst way. I hope abbey can reach some form of closure from this. I don’t want this chapter to end on a sad note like the last one.
dimes_should_have_stores April 2, 2012, 2:41 PM EST.
I’m personally shocked to see how many people didn’t expect this. This kind of melancholic twist was the most obvious but it brings out a question in me that I’m sure everyone else have asked already - is Abe Sr. the cause of death? Was bashing that vase in his wife’s head really enough to kill her? Did she take her own life? Or was she just unfortunate? Actually, maybe not so unfortunate… death could have been a sort of release from her husbands clutches, even if he’s imprisoned or executed.
Mr. Applejack April 2, 2012, 2:48 PM EST.
His mother’s living conditions are less than ideal.
Shiloh April 2, 2012, 3:12 PM EST.
Okay, i had to reevaluate this scenario in my head over night because this is definitely a WTF page. If it is, in fact, that abbey’s mom is dead and apparently abbey is just learning this, what the “heck” did janet tell abbey at the party. Because he was shocked there too by something she said and apparently it wasn’t that his momma’s dead otherwise he wouldn’t be as stunned/shocked as he is here. So, two questions i’d like explained, what did janet tell abbey at the party and if abbey’s mom is dead why did janet become a b**** and not tell him before they arrived. I mean that’s pretty F-N big information, “hey i found your mom, oh by the way she’s dead.” yeah i’d file that under S*** i’d like to know before i plan a trip to “see” her.
also please tell me this is not some inception thing where he had a dream within an dream so he had a fake wake up to this scene. Don’t get me wrong i’m not saying it’s necessarily a bad thing, it’s just that cliched dream within a dream plot i getting overused ALOT and it just puts a bug up my a** when good writers resort to that plot now to throw a shocking element into a story.

Aoriki April 2, 2012, 5:05 PM EST.
I hate to sound cruel…but I knew that this would happen. It’s just, the way Janet’s face looked when she told him in the beginning, I knew that his mother had passed. This is sad, but I think it’s good that a story like this is written. Not everyone has a happy ending, and sometimes, they’re bittersweet. Like the title of the comic.
Kera April 2, 2012, 5:17 PM EST.
Remember when I predicted when Charlotte was dead, then I thought that she may be alive when Janet first offered to take Abbey to her?

Think people are jumping to conclusions a little quick, Abbey knew there was a situation regarding his mother, so he was in the know (or acted as if he knew the details at least) so I don’t believe he is going in blind
Maybe the grave is his father, or theres a grave for the unborn child that was lost thanks to the beating, But his mother wanted to meet them by their graves or something? It seems weird Abby would act like this otherwise…
But colour me interested, it must be a recent death or something if its something to do with the family

GoldenCappuccinoFlame April 2, 2012, 5:56 PM EST.
Having just had a death in the (nuclear) family, it’s really a comic that hits close to home. Granted, there are some differences, you certainly can’t blame him for how he feels at this point, and just the idea behind it all. Because of the frozen ground, said family member won’t be buried until a little later this spring, but this certainly seems to help sum up that feeling of foreboding.
Really well done.

She’s not dead, no parent would say “Hey, I’m going to take you to see your real mom today” then take them to a graveyard. Plus she said she would take him and they would spend the night so it’s probably the front of some mental asylum.

… Um I kinda expected this from the beinging, it was plainly shown at least to me…
I think I even saw a post or two before about others saying they figured she was dead, unless she’s cleaned up and runs the place but I still honestly expect her to be dead and for him and his sister to have to deal with the said fact.
Ya it may not be nice but it’s real life, real life can and will be mean, unfair, unjust, and down right nasty if not nightmarish.
There are good parts too life as well but when you were as troubled as Abby’s mother was a bottle of pills and or the sharp end of a razor could very well be your best friend and escape.
Let’s face it, it’s death and it happens and a lot of people probably wouldn’t consider it fair but F**K fair because we all know life isn’t fair and we all have to cope in what ever way we can and those who can’t generally end up dead. (I’ve seen it before with friends and family I know my post will probably offend some but it’s true. I’m not saying life is fully unfair and not fun there’s a lot of good in life but life is life and lets face it s**t happens.)

Seems kind of harsh he was brought all that way to be shown a grave with like, no prep. I know there are denial staged but it really looks like he has no clue.
Or maybe no, maybe it just suddenly hit him. I personally think this is a surprise factor for readers though, even those who claimed they seen it coming, they have a day or two to sit on it an think, but as somebody who reads page by page one after the other, they don’t stop to sit and think on a page and just read right ahead without figuring out possibilities.

dildobaggins April 3, 2012, 4:39 PM EST.
Because this comic tends to cause frequent suspense and twist things around to surprise people, I’m not going to jump to the conclusion that she is dead. I would sooner believe that her house is only reachable by walking through the graveyard.

I hate when I had reason in something, I really hoped she were alived, but whatever, I thought, Taeshi, you have the last word. I’m sad, for Abbey and little Molly, but this is the life… and the hazzards need to be confronted, and Abbey needs to know that he has no fault for what happened, we all have bad moments, and bad sides, but what afford, is the good moments, and the good memories. That will never be forget, the good moments, the good friends, and the family. For show the real life (ignoring that it has cats and dogs, without humans LoL) I love this comic and Taeshi you’re the best, because you make me love this long (and I hope never ending) story.

Al3BEY April 3, 2012, 9:59 PM EST.
I can sort of tell what’s going down in Abbey’s head. When my cousin and my Grandfather died, realizing their deaths came in a strict pattern:
1. Shock. It takes a while to register what you’ve just discovered.
2. Shock is quickly followed by denial. You look around, begging someone to come out and say “Just joshin’ ya man!”
3. Cold realization. You still don’t want to believe it, but it’s right there in front of you.
4. If you’re the right type of person, anger. Someone puts their hand on your shoulder, they say it’s ok, but you know it’s not. It’s definitely not ok.
5. Grief/Depression/Remorse. You think about all the lost opportunities. My grandfather survived service in the Navy during World War 2, two types of cancers, and falling off a boat into a harbor when he was in his 80’s. I never knew any of this until after his death. I didn’t even know his middle name.
My suspicions? Abbey is still on phase 2 (denial) and is going to skip straight to anger and totally flip out. When his anger subsides, he’s going to feel the guilt kick in of not confronting his father sooner, and acting like his father as well.
Dat Interpretive Reader April 3, 2012, 10:24 PM EST.

I totally knew she would turn out to be dead.
The Law of Minimal Plot Complications alone determined it.
Any other outcome would have left her around to complicate the plots of further storylines. So, out she goes.
Isn’t it kind of cruel to go “I am going to take you to see your mother” when you know damned well that she is dead?

What? I mean, I was expecting something bad to be revealed but a bit of me was hoping she was like in some small town or something. D;

Cuz I can’t think of like a thousand less traumatic ways to break it to him. How about you jump out of a cake with a “Your Mom is Dead” sign?

I could read this chapter 50 times over and it will still hit me like a sack of bricks. Every.

And people go on about the December chapter.
This one wins the angst award! Schadenfreude Gold!

This was kind of a morbid way to tell Abbey about his mom. Couldn’t Janet have told him about what happened before they left on the trip instead of giving Abbey false hope?
