I think this is going to be a very interesting chapter. I was intruigued about Abbey's past and was sad to see that there was an unfinished chapter about it. It's nice to see that you waited to delve back into his past for a second time, because not only will we know more about his past; it will be viewed in a much nicer quality than the previous attempt. Keep the drama comin' Taeshi.

But 32 pages...?
Like I said, it will last for more than two months... For people who do not like Abbey it will be horrible. It's a lot, lot, lot of time for a sidecharacter. And I don't think it will change my mind and I will suddenly start to sympathize with him. Also, I don't like stories about abusive people, for personal reasons.
But that's just my honest opinion. Like I said earlier, I will cope and wait.
First things first, Abbey is not a sidecharacter, he is a full fledged main character.
I just don't get why people have to go around and start hating characters(fictional ones I might add) for such nebulous reasons. When I view fictional stories that interests me, I don't just all go around
and side with one character or start hating on one, The reason I view stories are because I am genuinely interested in the story and what it has to teach. To me it doesn't matter what the characters motives or beliefs are, or if in the story has a happy or sad ending, because there really is no such thing, it's really only a good or a bad ending, meaning that the ending was well done or it was fucking crap. I view stories for the sake of the story as a whole and not the individual characters of it. What I'm trying to say is that I think it's retarded to go around and start hating certain characters for any reason really, but that's just me. I just hate having to look at people stupidly spouting hatred about characters, it really annoys me.
I don't know who you are as a person or how you view stories, eniena and I'm sure you're probably a good person. I'd just like to say that the above post wasn't just directed at you, it is a message for everyone to think about.
Also eniena, I bet you just think Abbey is boring and that you don't like super rage hate on him, but if a story about him makes for a good
story than that's all you should care about.
tl;dr Don't hate the player, hate the game.
