So I've decided to start a series of posts that include suggestions of things like movies/games/books/music that invoke certain emotions for anyone who is looking for something to make them feel that emotion. I'll put these things in list format by type. As the title says the emotion I am going to use for my first post is sadness because that is the emotion most prevalent in my life so it is the easiest to find things for, without any further ado I shall start my list.

Things found on the internet:
Spoiler: Click to view
first one is a sequence of pictures from Clannad/Clannad After Story with the lyrics from Mayday Parade's song Terrible Things, play the song in the background for more feels (it definitely helps if you have seen the anime and the lyrics don't exactly match the anime but it is a double whammy of sadness)

Another thing you need to have prior knowledge of and if you do you will know why it is sad.

The sad truth about life

Movies/Anime: Clannad/Clannad After Story, Elfen Lied (if you don't mind a bit of blood it is really good), My sisters keeper, The Lovely Bones, Bridge to Terabithia, Romeo and Juliet ( not the ****ing Baz Lurhmann **** thing), Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino, the Fox and the Hound and finally Grave of the Fireflies.

Music: The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot, Guernica (both by Brand New) many Red Jumpsuit Apparatus songs (4 of which are: Damn Regret, Face Down, Acoustic Song/My Guardian Angel, Angels Cry) Forever and Always by Parachute, Make Damn Sure by Taking Back Sunday, pretty much every Sunny Day Real Estate song (I recommend Song About an Angel), Everybody Hurts by REM, Watch me Bleed by Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Hold On Till May by Pierce the Veil, Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd, Mad World (Gary Jules version, watch with Donnie Darko for full impact), Fix You by Coldplay and finally I Hate This Song by Secondhand Serenade.

Books: Wheel of Time series (mainly Knife of Dreams-A Memory of Light) by Robert Jordan, Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence by Doris Pilkington (because in Australia basic human empathy wasn't around in the 30's and Aboriginals were treated like animals), 1984 by George Orwell (bleak as all hell), Old Yeller by Fred Gipson, We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver, The Hunger Games series by Susanne Collins (don't give me **** for this it is acutally wuite depressing when you think about the story and the events), The Boy in The Striped Pajamas by John Boyne and quite a few of the movies I've liseted most notably Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Patterson and My Sisters Keeper.

Next installment will be either Happiness (feeling happy) or happiness (laughter/comedy) ciao for the time being guys.
