Re: 2019/06/03 - End Of Year Eleven

Marion's got to work for his happy ending just like King did, yes. But unlike King, Marion seemed to be a well-adjusted individual before he got transformed, and we have no idea what caused his transformation in the first place. If this is a case where he's a victim of somebody (Steward, the demon t...
