I think I will have to explain this one. Here goes!

There is a symbolic personality test that asks you to imagine you are walking through a forest, crossing a river, approaching a wall, etc, and asks what they look like. The idea is that your answers will say something about your personality, though really it's all nonsense. Anyway, the wall represents death. This fic is therefore a symbolic exploration of the ways Kurapika, Leorio, Killua, and Gon view death.

...there is something seriously wrong with any fic that requires this much explication.
