Here we are, my favorite story of all time.  Let’s go.

So, up to this point, there’s been a variety of stories that I could call my favorites.  They, at least in my eyes, are some of the best stories of their respective mediums, and have all influenced how I view, and judge stories even today.  However, no story up to this point has influenced my view of storytelling in general than my number one, which I experienced for the first time three years ago.

My Top Ten Stories of All Time! 10-8

Stories impact people.

Stories are those things which are considered timeless, a series of events which some people consider important enough to keep on telling.  They engage us, suck us into the lives of characters that aren’t even real, and teach us lessons that transcend the ordinary, and yet find real, true application.  Stories are universal, experiences that bind us all together, and man, they’re freaking GREAT to experience.
