I'm kinda behind on these, lol.  
Day 16 - Favorite poem or collection of poetry

"Footprints in the Sand" is one that I kind of keep referring back to, and I don't know why. I think that regardless if you're religious or not the message is very nice, and it kind of uplifts you knowing that even during your most difficult moments in life you were never alone even if you think you were. I don't know, I really like that for some reason.

With that being said, I don't really think I've been huge on poetry. I did go through a period in high school where I wrote it though, obviously something to really kind of express myself (very badly, btw), but otherwise it's not something that I kind of pay much attention.


Day 17 - Favorite story or collection of stories (short stories, novellas, novelettes, etc.)

Fairytales. I'm very into fairytales, not just the stories themselves but the history of their origins as well, as many of them were gruesome and had some pretty explicit meanings behind them. Just learning the different interpretations of them is intriguing enough. I have a collection of fairytales (at least some of them anyway) in a huge book that we've had for God knows how long, but it's one of the reasons, along with many other influences, that got me interested in them in the first place. I don't really talk about it that much, but I've always had a fascination with these sort of stories and tales because of their background and history and how it relates to today, and how we've changed the meaning but still keep that fantastical parts of it, you know? Okay, I'm rambling, but yes fairytales are my favorite collection of stories.

Also, obligatory icon usage because it's so appropriate and it's just too funny that I have use right now, lol! I MISS YOU CARA AND YOUR SEXY SARCASTIC MORD'SITH WAYS! WANT S3 DAMMIT.

It's one escapism we can all relate to.
