Sad/touching moments in things from my childhood that didn't use to make me cry as a child, but choke me up easily at 18.

Certain songs. Two-Headed Boy by Neutral Milk Hotel has always been a real tear-jerker for me.

Cat's in the Cradle

My father abandoned me and I've always related the lyrics of the song to him.
 
 
“You tell yourself to just
enjoy the process,” he added. “That whether you succeed or fail, win or
lose, it will be fine. You pretend to be Zen. You adopt detachment, and
ironic humor, while secretly praying for a miracle.”

Remembering that one time when I was in a pool as a small child and I saw a butterfly accidentally fly into the water so I scooped it out and set it on the edge of the pool to recover, except then another kid swam up and crushed it with his hand.

And strange enough, not funerals.
I am so happy to finally be back home

The Offspring's “Gone Away” and “Spare Me The Details” are about the only songs that ever got me going, but nowadays I usually react with a bit of revulsion, and want to turn off the radio, more than tears.

I do have one memory that was particularly sad. I was probably about 12 and on a bike ride when I found a squirrel who had been run over by a car and was trying to drag what was left of himself off the road. It caught my attention so badly that I had to stop. After a while I decided to put him out of his misery, but I screwed up and didn't kill him with the first blow. I've felt bad about making his last few moments even more painful ever since.

I'm actually a pretty sentimental guy. I've just learned not to show it off or risk being asked repeatedly whether or not I'm gay.

A few things actually.

1) When I internalize certain characters of mine from my comics as I write the script. It always helps to get into a semi-trance self-hypnosis induced state of mind in where you become the character. You absorb his/her state of consciousness and all the memories involved in the story of their life. These characters specifically:
- Matthias (aka “Mr Shadow”) of BK
- Cedrick of Brood Knight
- Eman Cruz of MAG-ISA
- Fr. Jose Penafrancia of MAG-ISA
- Claudita of MAG-ISA
- Lucia of MAG-ISA


2) Whenever I see victims of war. There's a war going on RIGHT NOW that doesn't involve tanks and guns and bombs. Its the war for your mind. And your soul. Seeing all the casualties of this war makes me feel sad and I sometimes can't help but cry. Its no different from seeing people with blown off arms and legs. As that's the condition of the souls of these people. Wounded. If you see a wounded person, should you laugh at them? Well unfortunately, that's what the psychopaths that run this planet do. Its FUNNY whenever somebody dies. I guess that's what Southpark is trying to parody with that “Kenny” character.


3) Whenever someone close to me dies. For some reason I still have the human instinct to cry over someone who died even if I am fully aware that the soul never dies and it just moves to another place that is probably way better than the hell that we live in.

NOW UPDATING!!!

For me, I think the question ought to be: What doesn't make me cry? Most of the time I cry when I feel like I did something extremely stupid/embrassing. Or if someone scolds me. Oh, and sad stories. Like the one above. :(

Life. Sometimes is it irony, other times how wonderful people are, and how tragic things can be. Life. Crying is so much better than holding it back because after the tears fall there is a smile of relief. That's what tears are for they provide that relief.

seventy2: The letters from war video got me crying too. Reminded me a lot of Band of Brothers

Chernobog: Makes me cry for the same reason. His memorial was last month and I made my peace.

“Happy to be stuck with you” by Huey Lewis which is my marriage's song. “Two out three ain't bad” by Meatloaf because of one special night in a very special person's arms that no matter how I try I cannot forget.

When I can't do anything to help my friends out of a bad situation. A few months back one of my friends was raped but the police wouldn't do anything because she waited a day longer than she should have to tell them, and three more of my friends were arrested for threating the prick with a bat. I felt terrible because there's usually something I can do for my friends but right then there was nothing I could do.

Wow. You all have so many MORALS. No, really, it's touching. Makes me feel like I'm reading shonen manga. I love shonen (believe it or not) more then erotica comics.

I've tried really hard not to cry as a kid, but I've always failed to shed at least some tears at funerals. During really emotional movies I can also be found to shed tears, as well as when I'm writing something really emotional and thinking it over in my head (NOT in any erotica, haha)

I was sat waiting in hospital once with nothing to do so I picked up a magazine and it opened on the horoscope page. I don't believe in that stuff but I read it out of boredom; it said “this year you'll meet people who share your viewpoint” and I actually started to cry.

That was before I joined DD of course :).

Ok, Up made me tear up even though I knew exactly what to expect. Near the end when he opened up the Adventure Book 1 more time, that made me tear up too.

You realize that if you don't have tear ducts you'd either have tears streaming down your face constantly or your eyeballs would dry out. If your eyeballs dried out then it would probably hurt to blink.
What a horrible existence you must lead– I shed a tear for you.
