  • Soldier guy has a special sack and cheats Death with it, which is never a good thing.

    SO freaking sad!!! When it got to the very end, I couldn't stop feeling sad. Poor guy. But, well, it's a myth, and they usually have sad endings because, life sucks, and most of the time, we don't get happy endings. This is an episode I constantly remember from The Storyteller because it marked me. It's almost heartbreaking, and makes you wonder... If I had a sack to put Death in it, would I do it? Would I wanna live forever, would I want everyelse around me to live forever? Would it be worth it, imortality? What if I turned out like him, not able to go to Hell or Heaven? Wandering around the world... Waiting for Death... Although it would never come. Ever.moreless
