Remember trjlogy you were about twelve, and you saw all those cool kids with scene hair writing maudlin poetry into their Death Note notebooks? The really ridiculous part is that Bethany is hardly perfect. The projected sequels are Ghost Hour and Haunted. If I remember correctly from the Bible, he was born in Bethlehem, Jerusalem and whether or not you believe he was Christ, hlo a prophet, a crazy person, or someone that never even existed, if he had been born in that region of the world, he definitely wasn’t white.

Because I’m going to screw up too. The only reason he went all Michael Jackson when you see pictures and such of him now is the church and the racist sentiments of people during that time. Although not explicitly stated until the end, it’s clear from Jake’s first appearance that he is the novel’s antagonist. I have no more fucks to give, here.

That’s like taking potshots at a toddler because he doesn’t draw inside the lines. I mean, wow, how Yeah, fuck that noise.
