Awkward... Hymm, I'd have to say,"Great work, but did you have to kill my character in book one?"

Just be casual about it get your book signed and tell your girlfriend


Really? You wouldn't leave?


No I'm not that immature it's in the past people change.
Walking out would be rather silly in my opinion ex or not you are still a fan of their work.

Considering that would be a bit awkward I would just say hello and ask if they could sign my book. After all that was the reason I went there. And if my ex was extremely awful I'd probably be a bit upset. But either way, I read the book, so why should I care?

A highly terrible one. What ever that means to you.


Even my worst ex girlfriend would only make me shrug and laugh at the irony. I just think that I wouldn't stick around for anything beyond the signing (or whatever the current girlfriend wants to do). I wouldn't make a scene out of it either way.

Some people change and some don't. But your beyond terrible ex is one of those people who will never really change. The only difference in your ex's life is that they published a book that and became famous for it. But they are still the same scumbag.

I mean you can get the book sign for your new boyfriend but for yourself not so much.

If you ex was awful to you then it's only because you dumped him I guess.

She probably modeled that character after you.

Let me tell you something about "artists":

They're incredibly self-centered and any social skill they have is simply a branch of their incredibly arbitrary worldview.

My advice is to pretend nothing's wrong, leave as soon as possible, and be disillusioned about artists and authors.

You can also start your own writing or whatever artistic career and start slowly agonizing in whatever pain haunts you (You should research the power structures of our culture, though. Getting controlled by publishing companies may screw you over through control or scams, maybe both. Remember those massive attempts at power grabs called SOPA and PIPA?).

Exactly what is that "terrible ex-boyfriend/girlfriend like, anyway? Is he abusive, dishonest/two-faced, or just a smug prick?

Let's say your terrible ex is all of the above.

As someone who has actually gone through a similar scenario of sorts I can assure you my ex's talent does not excuse her personality. Being good at something and being a good person are not mutually exclusive. >.>

There's a reason people are impressed/surprised when a celebrity / athlete / artist turns out to be a good person rather than an asshole.

Probably, yes. Though I would not have stumbled unknowingly into my ex's fan club to begin with ;p
