The Best Posts From 06/2013 to 06/2014

Every year on A Shroud of Thoughts' anniversary I publish a list of what I feel are the best posts from the past year (a "greatest hits" if you will). This year I am having to make an exception, as tomorrow is a very special anniversary and I have some very special plans for it. That having been said, I don't want to break with tradition, so I am publishing the best posts from 4 June 2013 to 4 June 2014 today. Without further ado, then, here are my favourite posts from the past year.
