I don't even know.  
So... I just wrote something. It's not even fandom related, it's just a bit of a depressing thing caused by watching too many shows and reading too many fics where characters die. So... have a thing. A single warning: It plays on the concept of someone's life flashing before their eyes as they die, so yeah... the unnamed protagonist dies.



They say that as you lay dying your life will flash before you eyes, and I can tell you, it's true. But the life I had lived was gone in an instant, an actual flash, and then came the life I would live. The one fate had planned for me before someone else decided to take it from me. I saw myself falling in and out of love. I saw myself meeting The One, marrying them, having children with them. I saw my children going to prom, graduating, getting married and having their own children. I saw the bright and shining good moments and the dark and agonizing bad ones. I saw myself live.

And that was such a bitter pill to swallow because the moment it ended was the moment that meant it would never happen. The moment I took the last breath in my flashes, was the moment I took my last breath in my life. I was angry, so angry, because no one had the right to take that bright and happy life from me, but they had. As I reached the end, saw myself in a hospital room surrounded by the family I would never get to build, I just wanted to stop it, I didn't want that moment to end. I didn't want to give up that beautiful future I would have had. But all things end, and as the me I wouldn't be took their last breath, I opened my eyes to my last breath of life, looking at the clear night sky, stars obscured only by the thin wisp of fog that drifted from me as the night grew darker.

As it all faded away.



Yeah. I don't even know what this even is, but I actually kinda really like it. I don't normally like 1st person POV, either to write or read, but it seemed like the only way that would work for this.

Opinions?
