Rule 1: Always post the rules Rule 2: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked and write 11 new ones (I’m only gonna ask 5 questions bc I’m a lazy little shit) Rule 3: Tag 11 people and link them to the post Rule 4: Actually tell them you tagged them
1. Who have you seen in concert?
Nobody, sadly. If I had done I would still be there, lying in the empty arena, sobbing quietly.
2. Do you have a lucky number? What is it?
3. Any brothers or sisters?
One younger sister
4. Movies on TV or cinema?
idk I love going to the cinema but I like to be able to move around and get food and stuff so it depends on the film and how much I want to see it I think
5. Unicorns or llamas?
6. Favourite tv program?
That would be Sherlock, Merlin, Doctor Who, Adventure time & Supernatural (pls don’t make me choose)
7. Do you/have you played Animal Crossing?
I’d like to but I have no money to buy it :(
8. Black or white?
Depends what it’s for
9. Are you a vegetarian?
I don’t eat pork, or any other pig meat (it’s not for religious reasons or because I don’t like it btw)
10. Left or right handed?
I’m trying to train myself to be ambidextrous but yeah….that’s not really working
11. Hot or cold weather?
I actually like most weathers but I don’t really do anything that’s above pleasantly warm (26 degrees yo) because there’s only so many layers you can take off without being arrested
1) Are you going to MCM expo/comic con in London? ☆*･゜ﾟ･*\(^o^\) (if so, which day?)
2) If you could live in any fictional universe, which would you choose?
3) If there was one week until the end of the world, what would you do?
4) you rather live near a forest or by the sea?
5) Which books would you recommend?
For tagging I tag anybody who wants to do this, cos some people I tag probably won’t want to, and tbh everyone should get a chance to do this if they want (if that’s okay maybe put luna brightside in the tags or send me a link or whatever bc I’m genuinely interested whether I follow you/you follow me or not)
Danisnotonfire, Crabstickz, AmazingPhil, KickthePj, Disney and lots more!
2) Favourite GIF of all time?
Either this one https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&docid=g_xpmaCoSRsC1M&tbnid=AtLP8QoTHfTbxM:&ved=0CAUQjRw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.tumblr.com%2Ftagged%2Fjog%2520on&ei=eO21UaGoD4G50QWv34DADA&bvm=bv.47534661,d.d2k&psig=AFQjCNHZlX5zT_xtkIukW-OMw0yiqk5djQ&ust=1370963670476772 or any hot fuzz gifs :P
Myles, as the young child, is told by the conductor that he (the conductor) doesn’t have a heart. The train goes on ‘forever’ and makes no exceptions to anyone, maybe representing life. This is shown by the bomb the child is given, life has no heart, it doesn’t care who and how it affects others.
Chris has lost his ticket, which is what the child didn’t have. Chris knows he can get it back, but not without trouble. His suitcase probably contains important belongings to himself, including his train ticket, or his ticket to life. He wants to get his life back before he can’t get it back.
Tom’s character wanted to start a ‘train fight’, maybe representing the fight for life? He attacks the child, who actually fights back. The child does later get blown up again, meaning bad times can hit you more than once, even when you think you are stronger and have survived.
The fly represents the rich. People who don’t want to share their money and help those in need. He only wants to help Chris get his suitcase back if he can get something out of it for himself.
Daisy and Colin are characters who need to be read to find things out about them (shown by the page 3 joke), though Chris does disturb them. Newspapers hold everything that’s going on in the world, although it’s usually bad.
The historical figure represents what has happened in the past. He wants to go back, maybe change time? Or return home?
The robot can only feel pain and fear, possibly representing depression and anxiety. The robot wants to see inside the suitcase and gets a bit upset about which makes me think he represents mental disorders. But then again, he seems okay at first and then gets a bit violent. The fly then tackles the bandit, thinking he will gain something from Chris for getting the suitcase back, even though Chris doesn’t want his help and has nothing to give.
The bandit stole Chris’s ticket, or life. The bandit called Chris a chum, so maybe he had been in this situation before?Chris might be ill/dying and this is how he is trying to get better? Chris is running out of time to get his ticket back. Though Chris blames the child and the child gets hurt in the process.
When Chris gets the ticket to the conductor, suddenly he is accepted again.
He is allowed to get of the train and continue like normal. The conductor says that fights on the train are common, ‘they happen all the time’.
Forever Train is about the truth of life, the reality and hardships. You will struggle along the way. (With a little bit of comedy chucked in) nobody is really the hero, but no one is really a villain either.
