You Will Suffer!

This is so fitting, haha. It's best if I quote Colly.

You Will Suffer is great but I have a feeling that YWS really stands for

Youths With Scythes
Youths With Sandwiches

and most importantly

You Will Suffer, no question.
*Don't expect to see me around much in the next couple of weeks. School has started again, and it'll be a couple of weeks before I've settled in. If you've asked me for a critique, you will get it, but not for a little while. Sorry*
