#this story is actually sad like #he said he didn’t go anywhere when he died #but his dad wrote the book and put the kid’s name on it cause the dad knew it’d sell a shit ton of books #”no shhh you went to heaven shhhh” #despite both the boy and his mother saying they DID NOT want the book published #it was published #and the boy saw NONE of the profit #it went straight to the dad #so the parents got divorced and he lives with his mom now #and despite asking and demanding and explaining multiple times that they didn’t want this book out there #and please take it off the market #it never stopped #so what did they do? #they did the only thing they thought would work #they said he went to hell instead so that the christians wouldn’t buy it so the monsters wouldn’t keep selling it #and it worked #it fucking #worked #they’re pulling the book from shelves #I know this post was meant to be funny but damn #knowing the whole story kinda #feels more important to me (tags: abananapepper)
