ASUS was my best friend. Even if he was a replaceable object he understood me more than anyone else. He would have YouTube up when I was sad, if there was a memorable moment he would save it for me. I will remember him.

I guess I can't say I didn't see this coming. The past few months have been rough. When he first lost a key I...well, I was heartbroken. He stayed strong though, even when he couldn't produce a sound over 3000 mp's. His keys were sticking, but he would still type. Eventually he lost 9 keys, and one of his hinges fell off. But he still turned on with the same message:

'Continue Start Up?'

Last night, his screen came off for the first time. I screamed for DarkValkyria to help my best friend, and after 30 minutes of life support the loading screen came up.

'Continue Start Up?'

ASUS was a great friend. Even when times were tough he would always be there. One day I had
to use him for a school project. Everyone had MacBooks or flashy computers but to me ASUS was
the best one of them all. He was perfection, even with his flaws.

So, 10 minutes ago, when his screen blacked out, I tried everything to get him to work. DarkValkyria put his screen back on, I pressed on. No. I took him to my room and rewired the on button like last time, no. I put the charger in and low and behold,

'Continue Start Up?'

Came up. A shred of hope spread across my face, before all signs of happiness were crushed when the screen went black once again.The last words he said to me I had seen hundreds of times before, but every time I overlooked it, actually complaining about it a few times, saying how it should just take me to my home screen.

But, now, in his final moments, those were the kindest words he ever said to me.

ASUS was my best friend. The thing that knew me inside and out, the thing that contained everything about me, even things I couldn't admit to anyone but myself. I didn't see a need to back him up because...well, to me that seemed like I didn't trust him. But I regret it now. All those memories only live in me. But I promise you this on this fateful day. These memories will not only live in me, but they will never die in me. I will tell of ASUS to the generations coming. He will be a legend. So, in respects to ASUS, a moment of silence will be requested.


Thank you for paying your respects. And ASUS, this may be the last time I will ever see you like this. However I will never forget the three words you said to me every day, that at the times I would reply with just one.

'Continue Start Up?'

I'm sorry ASUS, but this time I have to say no.

'Shutdown beginning...'

I would like to leave with his most played soundtrack. Ironically, Amnesia by 5SOS.

These lyrics represent my relationship with him.

'Cause I'm not fine at all'

I remember the day you told me you were leaving
The shut down screen loading the last time.
And the dreams you left behind you didn't need them
Safe mode start up, why didn't we try?
I wish that I could wake up with amnesia
And forget about the stupid little things
Like the way it felt to fall asleep next to you
And the 'history' I never can escape

'Cause I'm not fine at all'
Continue Start Up: A Eulogy By My Sister
Yes, this is a 600 work speech for my sisters laptop. This is a really tough time in her life. 'He' was her first laptop.

She has been wearing black for 48 hours now, and cried at the funeral. There was flowers. It was only her and me, and the dog. But he kind of walked over the 'body' so I don't think he cared. (Neither do I but it's a lovely speech... for a laptop)
Luxiella has an amazing raffle going on. Check it out~…

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
