** One night Fisk is home alone with his sister, who has a cold. He naturally asks his mother where the medicine is; she tells him they're red capsules, which he finds and gives to Lucy offscreen before leaving her to sleep. Later Sheila gets home and goes to check on Lucy...only to let out an Earth-shattering scream before calling 911 because Fisk [[UnfortunateItemSwap accidentally gave Lucy their mother's blood pressure meds instead of the cold medicine he thought he was giving her]]. Fisk ends up curled against the wall in horror as Sheila tries to make sure Lucy is stable enough to make it to the hospital.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: [[http://jaynaylor.com/betterdays/archives/chapter-4-the-bedbutter-chronicles/ Ms. Bedbutter, young Fisk’s teacher, is appalled by the contents of Fisk’s essays and the sarcasm he laces them with]], and calls his mother over to discuss the issue, but she thinks he just has an open mind and doesn’t succumb to his teacher’s indoctrination. While some essays do have a good point (e.g. espousing a more positive view of the US as a whole and denouncing the overwhelming support Jimmy Carter has in his native Georgia simply for being from Georgia), he uses some very inappropriate language for his essays (e.g. [[http://jaynaylor.com/betterdays/archives/2003/07/post-29.html ‘suck’ in the derogatory sense, ‘big-ass whale’]]) and out-of-place sarcasm (he mentions a ‘[[ValuesDissonance retarded]]’ boy from Georgia as an example to counter the admiration for Carter) as well as some factually incorrect statements about Native Americans, [[InjunCountry mixing up]] [[{{Mayincatec}} various]] [[HollywoodNatives cultures]] and throwing in some religious intolerance to make them sound [[TheSavageIndian particularly barbaric]] (‘[[http://jaynaylor.com/betterdays/archives/2003/08/post-32.html the native tribes were a pagan, stone-aged peoples [sic] stepped in outdated ways]], including [...] [[HumanSacrifice child sacrifice]]’) to [[WhiteMansBurden justify white colonialism]] in the Americas.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: In the aftermath of negative reaction to Fisk [[spoiler:joining a group of privately funded vigilante assassins]], Naylor made several journals trying to distance himself from the character, claiming that he didn’t necessarily agree with Fisk’s actions and views, and that Fisk was not his self-insert.
