<i>There are a lot of things that could’ve made ABW happen, but the fact is that our Ford didn’t wonder at all where ABW!Stan could be. Instead, he clung to another future that Stanley “stole” from him.</i> tHAnk you, this encapsulates everything that made my blood boil about the way Ford addressed Stan up until he ya know... nearly lost him. Forever. Also I love that comic, it's still fucking me up hours later D:
See, for me the journal was very cathartic, because it ended up being Ford’s entire character arc expanded and completed (the show works just fine on it’s own of course, but the journal is probably the best “supplementary” material I have ever purchased, and I use supplementary very lightly since this journal is pretty much essential for the gf story to feel complete).
Of course, for it to feel cathartic, there had to be somewhat (read: extremely) painful build-up to Ford’s moment of realization at the end of the story.
But hey, I’m glad you enjoyed the comic!
