yeah i know axes? what a weird request..but maybe he thought axes bc he wanted to stake one through crystal @ the time
...but i dont think he wants to destroy his past..he only wants to learn what he missed out on bc his aunt took it away from him....
hes a bit naive in a way bc he only knows really about one thing(demon-hunting) he doesnt know what certain things can do to a person like crystal, who said that something was missing in her life, until she came to spidercliff and shes used to being sort of cynical all the time

I think the poor kid just doesn't know a broom from a backhoe. ;)

although if the books were placed in wooden crates, it would make sense, but why didn't he also ask for shovels?
Barlow: Annabelle, bring the shovel, a few more axes, and the wheelbarrow to the cemetery for me.

It seems that in a weird sort of way Crystal is looking out for him at the end of the story. I know she cares about him, and I know you know that too Jason : )
I think the leaky brain faucet will somehow come into play in this story. And from other discussions, it might be the McGuffin, the driving force in the plotline. Maybe Barlow will find out that the books are worthless (decayed) and eats some of the brains because they are supposed to be intelligent. Too early to really speculate though.

yea, missed that somehow. He probably got the axes cause he knows they are in crates (makes me wonder if he was also at the 'funeral', which is possible) and maybe to break up any debribs.

The brain faucet is still the most intriguing (and disturbing) thing in the story. After all, the brains taste evil to annabelle, and where on earth, or spider cliff, would you find an inexhaustable supply of evil brains?

looks like it, and theres apparently some kind of waste product, or at least thats what the ink in the last story sounded like if it came from the brain faucet as some kind of residue or waste.
remember barlow said that the only running plumbing is in the basement, but we don't know if that pipe we saw outside near the graveyard is connected to the roof gutters or something else.

shouldnt we be worried that annabelle eats them all the time?

So far she just seems to be getting smarter - more self aware. But when the matrimonials got smarter they definitely got more destructive, so yes, it is worrying, isn't it?

yea, but the plants were probably operating closer to an animal mind, or maybe thier thought processes were different than the way we do. Annabelle was once human, so she has more control over her feelings and desires, although those from a century ago, but she is adapting to a different 'era'.

plus the plants were only destructive because they were competing with each other for the best soil. I can't think of anything that Annabelle would get like that about.

lol maybe mrs. mcguffin was a demon and it couldnt be logged in to the books that she was buried in the cemetery...bc well she was a demon so aunt vedilia buried her like the books...not thinking someone would uncover it
