Updating it now that the Diaries series appears over
* ContestedSequel: Different people are going to have breaking off points. Most recently though The Diaries series wanting to be a FanonDiscontinuity. Unless it in itself doesn't end up being AllJustADream. ** ''Secret Brother'' is a big example: Most readers hated it for not answering any questions and generally being pointless, but a few found that it was a decent-to-good story if taken as a stand alone novel and not some sort of GrandFinale it was advertised as.

Bart has very obvious shades of BPD or AVPD, blacks out fairly often and is often terrified by his own intensely violent urges. He uses an extremely misogynistic form of Christianity to justify lashing out at his mother's favoritism of his older brother, and could easily be separated from it if his parents gave a damn. Even though its probably one of the few fictional instances where a character being institutionalized would help rather than harm them, Bart's never helped beyond lukewarm therapy, and grows up with a skewed sense of love, family and intimacy as a result.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Olivia Logan an introverted, lonely woman constantly overshadowed by Belinda or is she a hateful, manipulating shrew who dumps her own family members into an asylum because she sees them as embarrassments? ** Is Belinda a SpoiledBrat who ReallyGetsAround or just a normal teenager acting out in dangerously self-destructive ways? And was her madness always there or did Olivia push her repeatedly to the breaking point and never bothered to help her?
