Chapter 16: I H A T E T O G O - Poem made by Dipper
I didn't want to leave Have to fight back the tears And always feeling blue This pain I can't relieve Ever growing with my fears The day I said adieu Oh, why can't I believe Good comes from new frontiers? Oh, why must I leave you?
This is the second time a song is used in a chapter, but there's a special reason for it this time. david31 , who is a very good friend of mine, made the reworked lyrics for this song one day because he knew that Bobby and Dipper would absolutely hate being apart from each other. He was quite shocked when I told him of my plans to use it for the story, but I told him I did it because I loved the song. Now I just needed to come up with a good idea for it, which I decided on what Bobby and Dipper with their final day together.
The big issue I had with this chapter, in hindsight was, based on what happened in Chapter 6, and the fact that Bobby ran off early in the morning, it meant that, in this chapter, it meant I had them going to get some food and attempting to go to the arcade extremely early in the day, since Bobby and his parents had left their home to start their trip well before the two of them would have had time for breakfast. I didn't realize my error until long after it was posted. Despite this though, I still really like the chapter and have no intention of redoing it.
