YMMV / The Revolution

For the short story:

  • Tear Jerker: Seriously, how can you not feel for the protagonist? He was forced to watch his wife executed (which is described in detail), his oldest son get shot because he wanted to hold his mother, all while his daughter and youngest son are screaming in emotional agony.
