YMMV: As I Lay Dying
The Book:

  • The Hero: Darl, the only one who understands that Addie was a loveless, cruel individual who only wants to be taken to Jefferson out of revenge, and so he tries to bury her as quickly as possible, first in the river, then in the fire.
  • Memetic Mutation: My mother is a fish.
  • Squick: Where do you start? Vardaman drills a hole through his mother's corpse's face. Said corpse grows progressively more rotten, as does Cash's poorly-treated broken leg.
  • The Woobie: Dewey Dell.

The Metalcore band:
  • Face of the Band: Tim Lambesis
  • Growing the Beard: The songs in An Ocean Between Us have gotten more impressive on a technical and melodic level
  • Magnum Opus: Either Shadows are Security or An Ocean Between Us.
  • Signature Song: Forever, Nothing Left/The Sound of Truth, Confined, or Parallels.
  • What an Idiot: Lambesis hiring what he thought was an ordinary hitman ended up being an undercover cop.
