    well i figured since i started it i should make the thread

    [​IMG]

    do you crey everytime? are you currently crying right now? you wanna talk it out and/or laugh a little at something ridiculous that made you get all misty-eyed anyway? Welcome to the Weepy Marshmallow Brigade. We are soft and we are dehydrated.

    so i already blew my favorite ridiculous crying story, The Moths, but the most recent thing i cried at that was a little silly was bo burnham's latest comedy special, Make Happy. shit is entirely too real y'all. i don't wanna spoil it if you want to watch it, but the last act and then the little song right before the credits punched me straight in the gut, and i still haven't recovered. fair warning tho, one of the songs is kind of a drawn out suicide-baitey joke? it's pretty damn bleak as far as humor goes and i promise it does make sense in context but the chorus is also just "Kill yourself" over and over interspersed with pretty graphic descriptions of methods. iirc it's nearish the end and it's proceeded by a short monologue that starts with "i hate my fans," feel free to skip it.

    anyway, now it's your turn kintsugi. sob with me.

    Saturday, I went to go see Alice In Wonderland 2. One of the previews was for the upcoming BFG movie. I'm honestly not sure what happened, because I've never been that emotionally invested in that story, but I started crying and kept crying on and off through the whole following two hours of the stupid, fun, silly, brightly-colored Alice In Wonderland.

    Every so often I remember that Ultra Magnus is a thing (i guess it's partly driven by a story, i read, but it wasn't even a sad fic? it was hot, shippy porn with a happy ending???) and I just start sobbing.

    One time I was on a fun beach trip with a bunch of friends and we were standing in ankle deep water and talking, and I just started crying because the ocean is so large, guys.

    I'm blanking on more right now, but I'm going to keep this thread in mind, because I've been weirdly/hilariously fragile lately, and I don't know why.

    Not only have I cried while listening to Hamilton, I have cried if anything more while reading the lyrics to Hamilton. I may have a problem.

    I cry over basically literally everything ever. Most recently I cried about the sea longing I feel.

    Deresto where is my brother sasuke

    recently i've been crying a lot more than i used to (meds that work = no longer an apathetic sack of sad? i guess).

    things i have cried about recently:

    • someone i liked on drag race got eliminated
    • an animal on dr. k didn't make it
    • an animal on dr. k did make it, and is happy and healthy back home
    • max the cockatoo's youtube channel
    • kilgrave is scary
    • spongebob dying in the movie, even though i know he'll be fine in like another minute (i cry at this every time i watch the movie)
    • those damnable commercials with the sad animals
    • my cat is really cute

    so yeah mostly animals, but it's really random what i'll cry at now. it's kinda fun, like some sort of crying roulette (if not a bit embarrassing in public)

    strictly quadrilateral alive, alive, alive!

    One time I cried about a glass of lemonade

    At anime Boston this year there was an amv that was the audio of the trailer of the little prince, with video from the cat returns

    A few years back there was another amv (that deservedly won best in show) that makes me cry every time I see it. I'll link it when I'm back on a computer

    Anecdote: when my siblings and I were little, the word "weepy" was taboo and you could try to make other people say it but you couldn't say it yourself. It was just a dumb game we played I think, but it's weird. Iirc one of my sisters still won't say it.

    The other day I cried at a Simpsons gifset. Specifically, this one. (Relatedly, I cannot watch Lisa's Substitute without bawling.)

    Other things that make me cry:
    • All three of Futurama's finales. And Jurassic Bark, but that's a given.
    • The Gravity Falls finale.
    • Space Doggity by Jonathan Coulton. It's about Laika.
    • Up. Specifically, the ending where Russell gets the Ellie Badge. I was SOBBING.
    • The ending of Homestuck.
    • This SolAra fic.
    • SolAra in general.
    • No Answer by They Might Be Giants. One of the most depressing songs ever.
    • Hospice by The Antlers. I legit cannot listen to this album in one go, because it's that fucking sad.
    • Rose's Scabbard. The end music alone can get to me. ;-;
    • I think I cried a little the first time I watched Jail Break. Happy tears, but still.
    • Embarrassingly enough, that FUCKING Christmas Shoes song. I cried and hated myself for crying because it was so dumb but ughhhh.

    Literally if I go a week without crying it means something is wrong and bad. Last time I cried was on Friday. I listened to some beautiful music and it brought me bittersweet memories of my friend Gui who is currently living in Japan. Everythign makes me cry: happiness, sadness, anger, relief, anything except apathy, murderous rage, DETERMINATION or a particular kind of quiet contentment (like I'm getting right now lounging in my pretty home after a long but ultimately satisfying day).

    Ahh, a song that made me cry even though I've never listened to it. 13 horses by alexander rybak. I don't think I even made it halfway through reading the lyrics before I tearfully bailed. I linked the lyrics, but I'd stay away if you find animal death upsetting. This gets to me even worse than Laika does, it hits basically EVERY SINGLE ONE of my worst emotional buttons.

    I cry over a lot of really reasonable things.

    I also cry because space is so big, and vast, and cosmic, guys guys space is so... there, and expanding, and moving, and time-entwined, and and and.
    I also cried when I got home from work today because my dog is so cute. ??????? I don't cry over cute animals. Make happy sounds, yes. Cry, no. But for some reason, today we shed tears.
    I also cry because I'm alive. What a thing. Life. The concept of being alive, here, now, and being the particular mind that is me.
    I also cry because sometimes I got overwhelmed by how pretty colours are.

    I'm stupid levels of emotional about that whole "existence" thing.
