Subject: The word that sums up this chapter for me was "poignant"
In reply to: Comicality 's message, "(S) "Billy Chase 394"" on 17:28:45 05/20/15 Wed

Between Billy watching his dad leave, Trace saying goodbye to the best father figure he's had, and Jimmy's sad texts, this was a kind of melancholy chapter. And that wasn't a bad thing at all. One of the cool things about a long, long, long form work like Billy Chase is that it gives you the freedom for these little diversions and detours into exploring other parts of your characters.

I like that you made Billy's dad a sympathetic, relatable character. Given your own relationship with your father, a lot of the fathers in Comsie stories are either absent or hostile. Billy's reaction to his dad's affair and his discipline probably coloured his view in his diary. While he might not be the most awesome dad ever, I felt he really did care about Billy even when he was laying down the law, and taking in Trace and Mikey with no obligation to do says quite a lot. Hope things work out for those crazy kids.

Sweet chapter.
