In Dead Like Me, the afterlife of those who pass on is just what they'd want it to be. Little girls get to go to carnivals, etc.

If you were to die tomorrow, what would your afterlife look like?

It'd be a toss up between great britain and disneyland.

I miss Dead Like Me. It was such a great show.

Its a toss up between heaven and hell.

And I'm not completely sold as to what would represent each.

My afterlife would be about 80 degrees, filled with beaches and bathtub-warm ocean water, dolphins no sharks, everything I eat would be non-fattening, periods would not exist, sex would be anytime/anywhere, and I'd have one hell of a group of people to be with without any of the petty jealousies that strike humans.
That would be a cool afterlife.

It would involve lots of waterfalls, a temperate climate, the ocean, and a bustling, but compact city with great public transit.

It would also involve a group of friends, lots of varied activities, a man who holds a steady job, bathes regularly, and likes to look as good as I do when we leave the house. And a whole mess of good music, everywhere.

I would live on a farm with my loved ones. We would have horses, some goats, chickens and rabbits that ran loose. The weather would always be warm and moderate. We would be close to friends and be able to meet with them often. Money would never be an issue, and in my dream world, no one would ever feel unloved or insecure and any differences would actually be able to be resolved with reasonable conversation.

My heaven would just be the the vastness of reality, all of them. Every possibility imaginable, and I'm able to go from place to place, from time to time, simply by willing it. Not JUST instantly, but to be able to take my time, to actually fly through space and time as an entity....am I making any sense here?

Right now, at this instant, my afterlife would be made of words spoken in the ur-tongue, a landscape of language, thought made flesh through the marks of sound and ink. In a language made of thought itself, only the truth could be spoken.

And I would be the only one capable of lying.

Pretty close to what it is now, just with many of the bits/aspects that suck taken away and with the time to enjoy it.

The really honest answer is a difficult one to explain. Sometimes I have dreams of where I've passed on, and it's like going through a curtain. When I go through that curtain, everything's clear. I know certain things about how everything works, and there's information about myself that I know I would find very useful in this life, but when its time to come back through that curtain, everything I've learnt on that side, stays there.

After those dreams, I sometimes get little flashes of being there... or the feeling of losing what I've learnt as I pass back. Except it's not a bad sense of loss... it just doesn't matter.

I used to get more worked up about what was on the other side of that curtain. These days, less so.

By day I would have a room full of computers with top of the line graphics cards and blazing fast processors and BIGFUCKING monitors where I can surf the internet and play Warcraft or whatever MMO all day while drinking vodka in my bra and panties.

By night it would turn into a goth club with appropriately dreary yet not tacky decor and music with a good beat and beautiful black-haired boys in eyeliner that I could dance with all night long. Oh, and a new pair of New Rock boots every night. And lots of dresses.

Ok thanks, bye.

I'd want a library. A big honkin' one. It has to have all of the books. Good copies, too, not cheap paperbacks, but nice hardbacks with leather covers and stuff.

Lots of big overstuffed leather chairs and couches, covered with nice pillows.

Somewhere, a big bed, with very high thread-count black cotton sheets.

A good, cool, dry climate.

Lots and lots of cats and dogs (who are all well behaved, of course, and there's someone around to clean up the poo, of course).

Foods and drinks that satisfy me, all of my favorites all of the time.

A nice big TV, with all the DVDs and all the TV on DVDs.

So basically, I just want my life, but bigger, better, and cleaner. Oh, and no work. ;)

Just so long as you don't break your glasses ;)

Hmm...been thinking about this one....I think it'd be a cathedral, filled with all the art, books and music (think of the acoustics) in the world, all filed "neatly but in some sort of Conor-specific system" so that I could find exactly what I wanted to hear or read etc. at a moment's notice. ;p

But I'd also want it to contain some sort of gym and a swimming pool (hey, getting fit in *this* world probably isn't gonna happen, so what the hell), and also, due to the topographical flexibility I'd expect from the afterlife, it would also contain some sort of forest that I could get lost in for at a time when I felt the urge.

I don't ask for much, do I?

Hrm.

I could only describe hell, and from that you can reverse engineer whatever.

That being anything, anything at all, that is static and unchanging. Whether it's sitting in a dentist's office with nothing but right wing propaganda and the family channel, or continuously orgasming into Scarlett Johansen.

Stasis = Hell.
