One year ago today, my girlfriend of three years passed away due to complications of Leukemia. She showed me /wg/ in the summer of 2012, when we had first started dating. Over the many hours we spent browsing /wg/ and wallbase.cc together, we made a collection of about 4,000 wallpapers for our shared computer.
I guess I'm here today, my first time on /wg/ in just over 13 months, to share some wallpapers from our folder that has been untouched since her passing. These are some of her wallpapers that, I feel, collectively represent how she was as a person. They're ordered chronologically by when she downloaded them, with #1 being downloaded in late 2012, and #25 just 3 days before her passing.
Attached is what was her favorite song; it's the last one we listened to together, just hours before she passed.
Feel free to share anything that inspires thoughts of someone that you care about.
I hope you guys enjoy these, and I wish you many wallpapers of great resolution in the afterlife
I didn't except to feel but it hit hard. I don't wanna lose mine. Here's one I made for her. God speed OP, everything will get better.
Thank you for sharing OP. Marvelous selection. There sure are personality traits attached to the imagery of the back of our eye. She even made me laugh. As an empathic note, my ex of 5 years died on a car accident. Hadn't though about our shared data ever again due to pain I guess. This brought it up. Thanks OP.
they may be in Spanish, but if you translate the lyrics, you'll understand it better
Too much feels for 4 chan, cheer up bro
Them feels, but that song is fire. I'm sorry OP.
thanks for sharing bro. sorry about your loss, I went through a similar thing when I was in college. Just know that you were lucky to share moments like that with someone, it sounds cheesy but the whole "smile because it happened" thing is really true. Hold onto the memories you made and bring them forward with you in life to better yourself and grow as a person, love you man here is my current fuckin wallpaper
I'd guess that she was a sci-fi enthusiast, as well as someone who loved nature and animals. She had a deep fascination with the universe and she loved discussing such things with you, something, if I'm right, was often.
Or I might be projecting.
Either way, I'm sure she was a wonderful person. I'm sorry you had to lose her so tragically.
I used this as a wallpaper for a long time. My girlfriend of five years and I took this shortly after we got back together, following a particularly rough patch.
OP, I'm sorry for your loss.
Coming from someone who is also sick, take solace in the fact that you gave her the greatest gift of all -- having someone to hold you up as the world crumbles around you. I wish you the best, and I commend you for standing strong and being by her side as your time together came to a close. Sending good vibes your way.
She enjoyed reading classic science-fiction novels during our surfing/hiking/camping roadtrips, her favorite being Helliconia. She was also very interested in art, you could find her painting or drawing most everywhere we went. A lot of her inspiration came from music, though. Both her and I were heavily influenced by hiphop and modern jazz.
Every day without her has been a struggle. It's the small things you really miss; the things you never thought you would take for granted. For instance, whenever we were apart for more than a few days due to travel, work, etc., she would write me handwritten letters that I'd get when we saw each other again. I have all of them to this day, but I still feel like I'm waiting to find one last letter from her every time I open my mailbox.
I wish you the best in your endeavors. I am eternally grateful to her for helping shape me into who I am today. Even near the end, our time together was invaluable.
Thank you anon, the adventures we shared together continue to influence me to this day.
Life is short, anon. Make every moment count, and remember that sharing small tokens of appreciation to those you care about can reward you with a more fulfilling life.
I appreciate the feedback guys.
Here's a wallpaper from her favorite game, Morrowind.
She/ you had great taste. I'm sorry for your loss
I know that feel OP. My GF died last year after her mother went nuts and stabbed her 30 times with a pair of scissors. To top it all off I had just bought a ring and was on my way to pic her up. The last thing she saw was me. She was a beautiful redhead too
Love you OP, and love the papes. The feels hit hard and strong.
Sorry to hear about everyone's loss.
Not sure why, but this pic brings the idea of death to mind.
Sorry for that OP
Im here for you
I love you
I don't have anyone like that OP. I'm sorry to hear about your story though. I wish I could say things will get easier or will get better, but I'd be attempting to empathize and we know that empathy just isn't the real thing. However, I can say, I hope one day you feel better.
I'm afraid I don't have much I'd think she'd like. Sorry for your loss
Last one is about death ;-;
I hope you feel better op.
hey OP, I don't have anything too great to add wallpaper wise but I apologize deeply for your loss.
OP here again
Thanks to everyone for their support, hope you enjoyed what I shared. I'll do another dump of stuff for you guys.
It's definitely possible, I know I have some of his short story collections on our bookshelf.
Yeah, definitely, I've never met a girl who loved hiphop as much as she did
Thanks anon, she was my world
I was planning to propose to her on May 9th, it was a day that had a lot of personal significance.
Alright, my last one for tonight. I'll post again tomorrow if this thread is still here
Feel story </3 if true i been here since '09 only like /wg/ first page. Good vibes to you. My friend.
whoever dropped this one THANK YOU! This used to be my wallpaper on my laptop (till it got stolen). I have spent ages looking for this one as this brings me peace when I feel sad or angry.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
In return my favorite wallpaper (after this one)
OP and others - thanks for these wallpapers!
These were awesome!
I know it can be so hard. Last year i lost what i thought would be the love of my life, the woman i wanted to marry and have kids with but she passed not long ago (a reason which i wont go into detail with for various reasons, mainly me trying to get over her loss), so now as i write this comment too you, trying to hold back the tears of someone who shaped me to who i am today, i just want to say i know it hurts and it's hard, especially when people tell you to 'stay strong' when you really just want to lock yourself away and never come out but remember you have friends and family who love and care about you.
I wish i could relive so many memories and moments that i know are so far away from being relived again because she's gone. I know it's an unhealthy way to think but i struggle to be without her. All i can recommend OP is keep your memories close and never forget the good times, try your best to move on and create new memories. Live life like you don't have tomorrow its what she would want you to do, don't let memories of her die out.
I'm sorry i don't have any wallpapers to contribute, but i guess i can post a song i remember we use to love and listen together. (Sorry am on mobile so the link may not work, if it doesn't the song is EDEN - End Credits)
Here's an Aardman wallpaper. You have my sympathies.
I guess i can make a quote for all of the people who've lost someone this close to them.
People have always theorised what the true meaning of life is. But i believe the people whom have loved and lost will understand the meaning best. Its simply to make and keep memories so they last forever. To simply never forget the people who create our happiest memories and even though they may be in a distant place, they still make our lives worth living.
I'll never lurk as much as when she brought me here. It'll never be as great as it was.
Heres one for you op. When she left me this made me feel
Am sorry to hear that OP, she's in a better place and promise to never let memories of her die out.
I know this may be a stretch of a request, but while i was reading this, i couldn't help but think in the best way to honour her, create multiple threads and dump all of her collection. It may be a stretch since you have 4,000 wallpapers, but am sure if she'd want to do something for /wg/, it give back all the joy and love from your collection back into this board. I wish i could do more out of respect but I've saved all the wallpapers, she sounded fantastic OP and you both were so lucky to had found eachover.
OP back again
Going to dump a few that reflect how I'm feeling today
I intend on being fairly active on /wg/ again, so I'll be sharing fairly regularly in threads I find interesting.
Alright guys, I'm headed out for the night.
Keep collecting anons
