    Yes, I'm aware the quote was taken out of context (I've read On Writing more than thrice & Q's OTAOW a few times) hence the mention of "gallows humour," which appears to have fallen flat. :my_bad::surrender:

    Oh no big deal,she is probably posting with I hope a bit of gallows humor,but she is clearly hooked,as we all were by SK..and guess what he is not done,he has such sights to show us..he isn't Pinhead,exactly,but he can be a torturous son of a cockadoodie sometimes.. ;)

    Welcome to the Stephen King message board! Please keep posting.

    Yeah, I can understand being upset. I was upset with the ending of Under the Dome, and Cujo but it happens.

    Like some of the other members have posted/stated, less than wished-for-endings happen. But!! Wasn't it an awesome ride! The story, the characters...we get to know it and them. Wayyyyy cool.

    Keep reading and posting.

    ...I know, right?.....I was laughing over that so hard-I think I made water in me Froot of da Looms.....

    ...the OP has every right and privilege to voice her state of pisstication.....I don't like it anymore than the rest of you when someone barges in here, pukes out some bile and then wheels on down the cyber-highway, but in this case-I see it coming from a place of love....being enthralled with the story and characters and then being gut punched at the "removal" if you will of several of our long time written friends...she's just putting into print what a lot of us probably initially thought when our travel to the roses reached that point....I'm not gonna be a hater, just gonna poke the badger a bit to let her know the tone was a bit off-putting....

    Hi AngryCryingGirl, If you are angry and crying when reading something that affects you, then you are doing something right. Good or bad, happy or sad, never keep that passion in check. That guy has broke my heart more than once in the past, and I love him for it! All the best, mal.

    When I read the title I figured it'd be about Oy, but then she mentioned she figured Oy would die, so I realized she was in a further disappointment.

    I believe the OP is a sincere sK fan who has simply overreacted. I assume were she to do it over she'd not be as harsh to sK.

    Hope she comes back, left a message on profile.

    She probably had flying emotional fingers.

    But wait.... there's more... I had a chuckle about.

    She might regret allowing herself to be carried away publicly. I know the feeling.

    Guys, guys...I read this as totally tongue-in-cheek. She clearly loves reading Stephen King, right? No one could get THAT into the characters without loving it. You're going to run off a potentially great member.

    Angry Crying Girl, keep posting! What other SK novels have moved you?

    I came here ten years ago after reading the last book in this series. I found friends here and decided not to show my anger. If I had been near Uncle Steve when I finished the Tower series, I might have torn his face off. It maddened me and I cried. It goes to show just how good a writer he is. I chose to accept the ending and kept on reading lol.
