You sick, disturbed bastard among bastards!
Fight the sadness Artax
It’s ok, I felt like crying today.
My turn to be that guy. What is the reference?
@dichbute, The Neverending Story
@dichbute, SPOILERS. As far as I remember: Artax - this horse - and his owner/friend Atreju enter a forest that bears an incredible sadness. Atreju is protected from this sadness by an amulet, however, Artax is not. After a while, Artax gets so incredibly sad and depressed that he just stops walking. He tells Atreju to go on without him and sinks into the mud, leaving Atreju alone, who is screaming and crying, trying to get his friend to move, but Artax completely sinks in.
I highly advise reading the neverending story, it's such a beautiful (children's) book. The author, Michael Ende, who lived about 100 years ago I think, could write the most heart touching, fantastic stories.
@A pet named Steve, ah, but the tragedy is deepened in the book, because the horse could talk, and he basically told Atreyu he was giving up because he couldn't take it anymore. Movie sad, book sadder.
