    THE TALISMAN SPOILERS!





    "Wolf collapsed like a falling tree.
    Jack knelt, turned him over. The hair was melting away from Wolf's cheeks with the eerie speed of time-lapse photography. His eyes had gone hazel again. And to Jack he looked horribly tired.
    "Jacky--" Wolf raised a bloody hand and touched Jack's cheek.
    "Shoot...you? Did he..."
    "No," Jack said, cradling his friend's head. "No, Wolf, never got me. Never did."
    "I..." Wolf's eyes closed and then opened slowly again. He smiled with incredible sweetness and spoke carefully, enunciating each word, obviously needing to convey this if nothing else. "I...kept...my herd...safe."

    There are so many- almost each book as one of those moments. For me, it would be the Dark Tower

    when Oy finds enough strength to lick Roland's hand one time before he dies.

    Unhappy Re: saddest scene in Stephen King cannon

    These two parts in The Stand:

    When Nick Andros gets killed and at the end when Stu Redman gets back to Boulder and everything and everyone is starting to do things the same way as before, with all that stuff "waiting to be picked up again" Doing things over and over and expecting different results.

    Also, the end of the Dark Tower series when Roland realizes he has to do it all over again. Hopefully he remembers the horn this time!!

    Under The Dome

    when Rory Dinsmore shoots at the dome with his dad's gun and the bullet blinds him, then he dies later

    The Dark Tower when

    Oy howls at Jake's burial spot in the woods. Also the graphic of Roland carrying Jake's body with his coat covering him really gets to me too.

    when Jake dies and Roland must carry him into the forest and asks Oy if he wants to say goodbye and Oy replies 'I ake.' Gets me every time!

    That's probably the saddest one for me, too.

    Two others:

    Harold Lauder's letter/suicide in The Stand and Brian Rusk's conversation with his brother and HIS (Brian's) suicide...both get to me because I grew really attached to those two characters.
