Because I just read a fic that made me sob
, I've got to know. So tell me, which fics have made you cry? Not just the ones that you thought were sad, but the ones that literally brought tears to your eyes. I'm sure I can't be the only one who had burst into tears over a particularly sad fic, so tell me. I want to knoooow. Share the link too, if you have it, so we can all go read it sniffle into our hankies.
The list of fics I can actually remember crying over (though I'm sure there are a few more I'm forgetting) is thus:Stages of Love (Murderers in a Minor Key Remix)
. I can't...even describe this one. It's so hard to portray Schwarz as sympathetic, even tragic, characters and do it realisticly, but oh man, did this fic pull it off. Cried like a baby, yep. I can't wait to see who wrote this one.Tomorrow and Tomorrow
. Oh geez, I cried so hard over this one, I can't even tell you. It hit all my emo buttons, and was so pretty and beautifully written. *sniffs*When You Go There
. The layers in this story are just breathtaking. And the family traumas at play are just painful and indescribably touching.
Such Great Heights part one
. Exquisitely written. It's pretty much told from Goku's point of view, but it was Sanzo who broke my heart in this. Because really, what would he do without his monkey? I weep at the ending to this. So sad.On a Deaf Ear
. The relationship between Sanzo and Goku just makes this sadder. Goku is so devoted and Sanzo is so afraid of depending on anyone and letting them see him vulnerable. Soooob.
So yeah. It's funny, looking over this list I can clearly see some repeating themes here. People getting old and sick and dying is obviously my emo button. I think I just find something monstrously unfair in the fact that people get to live a long, happy life and find someone they love, and then they have to leave that person
. That just doesn't seem right. Also, stories about people taking care of their loved ones when they're old and sick = soppy, teary cicer
. That kind of profound love and devotion hits me right in the heart. Oof.
So! If I haven't totally depressed you
by now, share your list of Fics That Made You Cry Like A Little Girl. :D
