Mark responds by gaining enough weight that he no longer resembles Miles.

* This is the premise of a series of Creator/VCAndrews novels. The main character Celeste has a brother named Noble, who is the favorite of her New Agey, spirit-obsessed mother. When Noble drowns to death, the mom forces Celeste to dress like and act like Noble, in the hopes of having Noble's spirit live on through her. She even dresses up Noble's corpse like Celeste and tells the whole town that it was Celeste who died, not Noble. Needless to say, the whole thing comes off as [[NightmareFuel downright creepy]]
** In the Landry series, when one of Ruby's twin sons dies, the surviving twin announces his intention to do this. Ruby and her daughter both realize it's not good for him, and try to discourage him from it.
