Follow You is a oneshot fanfiction written and published on FanFiction.Net by Oneirogenic. The story was inspired by "I Will Follow You Into the Dark" by Death Cab For Cutie.
I will follow you into the dark.
Eric Cartman inspects a recent scar trailing down Kenny's torso, too uncomfortable to ask when he got it. Kenny explains that it was from a month ago, when he fell off Stan's roof onto his fence and attempts of console Cartman by saying that it didn't hurt as much as it did.
Cartman surprises Kenny by asking what it's like to die. He mulls over it for a brief moment before saying that it's painful sometimes, then there's darkness, and then he wakes up, and he doesn't really understand it. He asks Cartman why he's so interested all of a sudden.
Cartman gets visibly upset and laments that there would be nothing for him after death. Hell wouldn't even want him. Kenny gets a vacation in Heaven and comes back every time.
Kenny kisses Cartman's tear-stained cheek and comforts him. He says that after awhile, he probably won't even want to come back. He will get tired one day, like Cartman will, and they both just won't wake up one day.
Kenny promises that he will follow Cartman into the dark.
