Never die in vain.

Captain Isumi's death in Muv Luv Alternative. She decides to refuse help and sacrifice herself along with the prototype weapon to detonate and destroy an alien hive. The music, dialogue, and general presentation made it really poignant and sad to me, and I definitely teared up. (warning:anime)

It's hard to say for certain
But I think I like it here.


The season 8 finale of Scrubs. It was just so perfect in every way. The way the goodbye JD sign doubled as a projector screen that showed the way JD imagined the rest of his life being, and the camera cutting to him just smiling as he watched. His son and Turk's daughter getting engaged. Getting a genuine hug from Cox... I cried like a baby the whole time.

Probably the best series/season finale I'd ever seen.

A few months ago I had a fever, the kind that makes things.. different. Cold feels weird, hot feels weird, your own hands on your head or body feel weird. Everything is warm and you feel weak, but everything has this sort of.. niceness to it. I genuinly LIKE having a fever (as long as I'm not SICK-sick)

So I lay down on the couch, put on some family friendly films and enjoy a day of rest (had the day off anyway).

Finding Nemo has one of the saddest scenes in it. In fact, most of the Pixar lineup has terrible tear jerking moments to it, but I can always hold back with the thought "Seriously, dude, don't cry. It's a cartoon." Well, that thought does not occur in the heat of a fever addled brain.

The scene where Marlon finally gets into the dentist's office and Nemo is playing dead in the baggie, and everything things gets slowed down. That part of the scene where Marlon whispers Nemo's name, having seen PROOF, that his son is loving DEAD and this journey was for naught. The fact that Nemo HEARS THIS and stops his ruse a second too late, his hope of being rescued validated at the exact moment his rescuers have decided to give up as they believe their goal is gone.

I cried. I cried as hard as I did when I cried about not being able to go to my grandfather's funeral because I refused to see him that way. I cried for 35 minutes. In a row. I could not stop. The movie ended before I was done crying. I was bawling. I cannot recall a time I ever enjoyed a good cry more (after I was done). It was a sad cry, for sure, I was not streaming tears of joy down my face and I most certainly was not getting enough air into my lungs because I was laughing. I was BROKEN inside by this movie. God drat I love fevers. It's like being high, and my emotions are heightened. Everything is different in a way I want to explain but cannot.

That's my favorite cry. A kid's movie made a 27 year old die inside a little.

Emilie Autumn- What Will I Remember?

A song about contemplating your death, and wishing you were never born. It reminds me of when I was thirteen. I had just moved to a new city and had no friends. I was constantly bullied and ignored by everyone in my life. Combined with my developing clinical depression, it basically made me into a little budding hermit who attempted suicide twice in a year.

I listen to this song, and suddenly I remember all of it. The emotion in her voice just hits me right in the gut.

The neutral ending to Bioshock 2. While the rest of the game was fairly mediocre, that ending where Mr. Delta chooses to die rather than live on in the mind of his daughter, and she drags him up to the edge of the sub (mirroring the game's opening cutscene) and weeps as he dies.

Your sacrifice gave me hope. But father, wherever you are...I miss you.

If you're an NPR listener you're probably familiar with the StoryCorps project, where individuals are recorded telling a story from their life (usually to another individual). Some people think they're kind of sappy and not "news" but I make a point to listen to them every week while driving to work.

This week's episode for Mother's Day got me tearing up on my commute: http://www.npr.org/2013/05/10/18263...mories-of-a-mom

Daughter records a StoryCorps session with her mom in 2008 while she's pregnant and mom has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. She's now recording a session five years later after her mom has passed away.

I would suggest it to listen to the audio instead of reading the text. I was fine when I was listening until they started singing the lullaby together. Then the tears came (while I was driving too).

These things always effect me because of the audio. The text has only a slight emotional response on me but hearing the mother and daughter conversing and singing together, knowing that the mother is soon to lose all her memories and abilities (and ultimately passed away three years later), just made me lose it.

You ever do the chicken dance at a wake? That really bothers people.

I've been going through Mass Effect 2 and 3 over the last few weeks and some of the character deaths have always hit me. Maybe it's silly, but you do grow attached to the characters, especially in ME2 on their loyalty missions. Mordin, for instance, comes face-to-face with another salarian's brutal experiments to cure the Krogan Genophage. He always staunchly supported his role in the original creation and later modification of the Genophage, but seeing the bodies of the Krogan females who volunteered for such treatment in the slim hopes of curing their race really bothers him. Make sure you take the time to talk to him and go through all the dialogue prompts. It really paints a portrait of a covert operative AND doctor who balances his desire to save lives with the occasional need to take them.

In ME3, he befriends the Krogan female Eve, the lone survivor of the experiments in ME2. With the Reaper attack, the galactic situation is changed. The galaxy needs the Krogan at full strength, and Mordin has determined that the Genophage needs to end once and for all. But when the time comes to do it, the dispersal tower is damaged and falling to pieces. He needs to go up into the collapsing structure to undo his peoples' sabotage and make sure the cure can get out into the atmosphere. He does so without pause. After all, it had to be him. Someone else might have gotten it wrong.

The little side vignettes in ME3 are also pretty sad. You can stop by to hear various people talking about what they lost in the Reaper attack. The Batarians were almost wiped out entirely, and you can see one of them talking with a human refugee about places they'll never be able to see again. Another human girl is talking with a turian clerk in the camp about whether or not her parents have arrived yet. The conversations even build on each other and you can hear more about their stories the next time you visit. One particularly sad one is an asari commando suffering PTSD and telling the story of her last mission to a counselor. It's just a real bummer, and the kind of writing that Bioware can do drat well sometimes.

I always cried when Marlin leaves Dory, after that scene.

Lilo and Stitch was the first real Disney movie that made me cry like a bitch. Not that Bambi wasn't bad or Mufasa's death didn't hit me, but Lilo and Stitch hits you every other scene: in the beginning when Lilo is feeding a fish in the ocean, and she tells her hula instructor the fish controls the weather, she's trying to placate/bribe the fish to keep the weather nice (her parents died in a car crash when it was raining bad). The scene with Stitch and the Ugly Duckling storybook, and when he finds Lilo's photo of her family. The surfing scene that ends with Nani being told her sister's being taken away.

"This is my family. It's little, and broken, but good. Yeah, it's good."

I can't watch that movie anymore.


Brave was another movie, where Merida, at the end, finally breaks down crying and saying it was all her fault, when it looks like the curse won't be broken, and her mom's gone forever. Watching it with my mom was hard, and I have a drat good relationship with my mom too.

What really broke my loving heart was the ending to the series, but anyway...

What makes me cry is thinking about my parents dying. They've never for a moment let my doubt they loved me, nor have they ever failed to support me when I needed it, and when they go there are feelings of comfort and security I'll simply never feel again.

It's not even just about dachshunds, but any pet in general - my family has had 2 dogs that had to be put to sleep, a dachshund and a rottweiler, both the sweetest animals. Our rottweiler had cancer and by the time we found out, it had spread so much that there was no guarantee any operations or treatments would work...and our dachshund had some sort of intestinal problem that left her so weakened that operating on it could've made things worse. It was rough to lose pets like that, we got the dogs about a year apart from each other, they got along great, and were with us over a decade.

This video and another one about a dog named Odin (I think that was its name) never fail to leave me in a sobbing heap. It's sad to lose a pet, but always good knowing that someone gave that pet a good, fulfilling and happy life to the very end. I'll always remember our doggies, some of the best, most faithful and loving companions

Also, one that caught me off guard - Adventure Time, with the epsiodes that talk about Marceline and Ice King (Simon) and their backstory. The end of the second part where Marceline and Ice King are singing about how Simon hopes Marcie can forgive him when he doesn't remember her and goes crazy from the crown just hit me in the gut. Maybe it's having dealt with elderly family members going through Alzheimer's and dementia, and forgetting people or everyday things, I don't know. But it was the thought of someone going so completely crazy that they don't remember ANYTHING about their past...their friends, family, where they lived, all gone from memory like it never existed. Seeing Marceline cry because Ice King had no recollection of anything, while they sang their song, completely did me in.

When we were drunk and melancholy we'd play Sonora's Death Row and sit there, drunk, in a dark room lit only by a night-light. We'd usually drunkenly sing along to the tune and end up quietly crying.

That or Seven Spanish Angels would tear us up as we sang along with it, usually leaning against one another, so drunk we could barely see, quietly singing it in the dark.

A book that made me cry is Redliners by David Drake. The goddamn ending. I think it hit me pretty hard since I bought it the day I left the military.

A video clip that made my wife cry out in shock and both of us cry was a Grey's Anatomy Episode that had a hell of scene. Link to it. It shocked the poo poo out of us.

I'll admit that the scene in Terminator where they zip up the body bag over Reese always chokes me up.

Not really a "favorite thing" that made me cry, but last Monday I got the call that my college mentor had finally passed after a long fought battle with pancreatic cancer. We all knew it was coming, but it was still crushing. I think part of what made it so hard to hear was that he was so upbeat through it all. He was well into his 70s, but was still actively updating his Facebook statuses about how his wife had made pancakes with homemade apple butter and he had enough of an appetite to eat half a plate or how he had managed to catch the first quarter of his favorite team's big game before he was too tired. Just stuff like that. He would thank each student that posted on his wall to wish him well (which was A LOT , considering he was the president of the university for over 20 years as well as teaching the entire time). I won't pretend I went to the best school, but goddammit if I didn't have one of the best presidents. Even if you'd only met him once, he knew everyone's name and something about them (hobbies, pet name, whatever) and anyone could just walk into his office if they needed to talk to him. I genuinely don't know why he took such a liking to me, but I can't express how much of an impact he made. He motivated me to become a better person (not to mention, gave me the single best piece of advice that led me to finally pull the trigger on asking my now girlfriend out a few years ago). And then, last week, my phone rang and, looking at the name on the screen, I knew what had happened. And I, when they told me, I just sat at my desk at work and cried (largely because I was happy that it was over for him). And, now I'm trying not to do it again.

Commandancy of the The Alamo

Bejar, Feby. 24th. 1836

To the People of Texas & All Americans in the World—

Fellow Citizens & compatriots—

I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna — I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man — The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken — I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls — I shall never surrender or retreat. Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch — The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country — Victory or Death.

P. S. The Lord is on our side — When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn — We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels and got into the walls 20 or 30 head of Beeves.

The end of "The Green Mile".

You know the scene--John Coffey, played by Michael Clarke Duncan, is being strapped into the electric chair as the two dead girls' parents hurl epithets at him...and then he begs Tom Hanks' character not to put the hood on him because he's scared of the dark. All the guards are quietly crying as Jack Van Hay throws the switch. It gets me every loving time.

Zach Sobiech was diagnosed with terminal cancer. He made a song called "Clouds" about his feelings on it:

And here is a "My Last Days" video on his experiences:

I came to post this; I found the video a few weeks ago and then had a friend mention today that he'd died yesterday. Since you've posted that video, here's another song he did with his bandmate/best friend that makes me cry:

I am 32 years old. My grandparents are all dead. My mother and father are dead.
I don't even understand the concept of "happy tears."

I am jealous of those of you who cry over video games.

I was the same at 22. I'm 27 now, and all I can offer is while cramming good memories into the holes they left isn't a solution, it helps. Happy tears are when the tears you get when they're not around to see something are replaced with the tears of realizing that they'd be drat proud.

And I still cry over videogames. And movies. And the occasional sunny day.

Boxer Hockey is a good and funny webcomic, but the series of flashback comics starting here from a few years ago always makes me tear up.

It's worth reading the whole little story, you don't need to know the characters or anything. It's about fifteen short pages.

What use had they for tricks and cunning, living in the enemy's warren and paying his price?

I showed my mom just one comic from this storyline Big boys don't cry, and I'm a big boy. and she teared up from that one alone.

What is it with Disney and Pixar movies making me cry when I get older, but not when I was a kid or teenager? I never cried at Bambi. Rarely at Mufasa. I think everyone cries during the opening scene from Up, and that part of Toy Story 3, and perhaps even 2 with Jessie's song. Meet the Robinsons, probably one of the best of Disney's underrated movies, makes me cry, the entire last 10 minutes of it. Mostly when the kid Louis is packing up his things, leaving the orphanage with his new parents, and we see Goob being adopted too. The look of just utter happiness kills me, because that's all it took to change the future for the better.

The last time Mulan was on TV, waterworks ahoy at the end of the song "A Girl Worth Fighting For" ends with the marching army coming across a village that was burned to cinders, and they find the commander's father's armor, with him and all his men slaughtered. You never see the carnage, but you do see Mulan find a little doll, the same one the bad guy's hawk brought to him earlier in the film. Little doll, no little girl. Everyone in the village and the defending army was massacred. Pretty heavy for a Disney kid flic.

All of Deep Fried's "Clarissa" comics just crush me. How anyone could see a child as a sexual object, and abuse them just ...ugh.

You ever do the chicken dance at a wake? That really bothers people.

If we're talking tears of joy, the episode of Samurai Jack "Jack Learns to Jump Good" does it for me. After all the training with the monkey tribe (running, jumping and climbing while weighed down by rocks), they finally take off the rocks and he can jump enormous distances. Once Jack sees that he's mastered jumping good, he starts really jumping all over the place. There's a close up of his face when he's bouncing from treetop to treetop and the total Hell Yeah! look on his face gets me.

Same thing at the end of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, with Eddie bouncing on the pogo stick during his musical number. The whole childlike joy thing gets me.
