I also liked the initial sighting of Craddock and how Jude played things calm and tried to act as if he didn't see him. It may not have been THE most defining moment of the story, but it was the moment when I said to myself "this is going to be goooood!"


And yes, typo's do happen here! :twisted: 8) There common, eye'd say.

My favourite bit was when Craddock climbed into Jude's dad, and when he climbed out again! THAT'S when you know youre in trouble! People hopping in and out of your aging relatives left right and centre! I loved it! Its the first scene I'm going to draw!

I especially enjoyed when the story went to Craddock in Florida looking for the plane that went down...using hisw "abilities". I am partial to that b/c I was all "Yeah, yeah...I-75/Alligator Alley...right, yes...that is right here, and yes, the Everglades, yes...Joe's right about that being right there" LOL...I was excited to be "in my backyard" :oops:

I also liked when they screwed with Bama a little pretending they were "going at it"...that was cute.

I really liked it all, start to finish.

I loved when Jude kicked Georgia's molester/pimp's ass! The scene where he see's what happened the night Florida died was great too, and I was cracking up when Jude thought he might have had some fun with Bama back in the day.
Ooops, I forgot to put down a signature.

I loved everything in Heart Shaped Box, but the scene in the diner stuck out to me as an oddly endearing reminder of how much Jude cares for Marybeth.

Okay, so I have a lot of favorite scenes...

Number One would be when Jude realizes that Mary Beth and Anna are merging and becoming one person...when he starts calling her Mary Beth instead of Georgia. I also loved when he kicked the shit out of Ruger! Haha. And also when he finds Anna running down the highway in only a t-shirt and tells her it's really over, that's a great scene, really shows the depth of her illness. When he "sees" how Craddock killed Anna, and he tells her he loves her one last time, that almost made me cry! And of course the scene at the hospital.. "her skin paper, her bones hollow sticks"...love it.

for me I think it would be when Jude is "watching" what happened between Craddock and Anna when she died. Jude touches Anna's shoulder when she's confronting Jessica and Craddock in the hall. But especially when Anna is in her room listening to Jude and Craddock comes in and he is pulling the shades closed, and Jude says "I love you, Florida" and she "replied" "Love you, Jude" much to Craddocks surprise.

Same here. Love this scene. LOVE IT!
