Tearing Up



So, I keep hearing about all of these stories and other fictitious things that people cry over. And I don't mean everyone cries at them, but I hear actual people have actually cried at these things. You know, like Toy Story 3, The Bridge to Terabithia (book), My Little Dashie, and various other things that don't make me cry.


Yeah, I rarely, and I mean bordering on the fence between fairly seldom and never, do I cry at fiction. Movies, books, shows, comics, etc I normally keep my cool. In fact, I've only ever gotten misty-eyed at fiction. No actual tears as of yet.


Don't get me wrong, there are moments that I do cry, but then it was always something to do with reality.


So, whenever I find anything that impacts me so much that my eyes start to water, I know that it's good (well, in my opinion. I really couldn't care less about what you guys think. =P)


Most recently this for me was the book A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story.

I will admit, Toy Story three got me slightly at the very end. Les Mis came close. About the only things that really make me cry are things that personally effect me: i can feel grieved and pierced to the heart by a tragic story, but not to tears... Strangeness.


I wonder how long it'll take for me to read that book... Before Major Seminary, I promise!


Well, sorta promise. Procrastination may kick in.

Seeee I told you it's one of the most amazing books ever. : D But yeah seriously, that book plays with your emotions so well. Glad you liked it. ^_^

Les Mis was the first time in years that a piece of fiction had even given me misty eyes, so I suppose I'm probably the most heartless person out there when it comes to fiction.

Anne Hathaway's rendition of 'I dreamed a dream' in Les Mis remains the only time I have ever shed a tear over fiction, be it film or book.
