Yeah, it's weird how when you have a solid family situation you have perspective on things (or this is my characterization anyway). Derek is totally lost. Sometimes I even pity him.

Thank you for liking my OC. People get weird about that stuff.

Yeah, sorry about my awful run-on sentence, but that exact feeling of perspective is what I meant; I enjoyed how he understood Jackson's dysfunction as well. And Sara is delightful. I liked reading Danny's whole family. Felt comfortable.

Funny, I started thinking about how I'd write Derek while traveling yesterday, and actually talked myself around to feeling bad for him too. I think my Derek would have basically dropped out of school and lived in his car and Laura would have been worried about him all the time. Damn it, I don't want to care about this guy! He sucks!

I think that's exactly what happened to Derek, plus he gets to blame himself for everyone dying...and he's sorta even right. This particularly bothers me wrt to his characterization in the novelization (which I dismiss) because he thought Kate was his One. True. Love. Mate. and then he's alone and homeless. Kind of hard to make that worse.

SORRY TO MAKE YOU FEEL

Everything I've read about the novel leads me to believe it's deeply bullshit and I can feel free to put my fucks elsewhere, so that's what I'm doing.
