That Star Wars Movie  
I've been wanting to post since I saw it, but wanted to be less emotional. Now it's been a few weeks, I'm giving it a try.


I am so angry!! I loved the movie, even with third generation of whiny Skywalker brat, and I'd gone in spoiler free, so felt totally sandbagged at what happened. They killed Han. I started to cry, and I didn't stop till the movie was over. I don't know where fandom hangs out these days, but all I heard from people was how awesome the movie was. Am I the only one who was/is upset? I remember how angry fandom was when they killed Richie, over 'Last Knight', so many other instances. I thought there'd be some reaction. Maybe I don't know where those places are, but I feel totally alone in this. I don't ever want to see the movie again, and I'm not sure I want to see the sequels. I wish Han hadn't even been in the movie if that was going to be the outcome. I was so excited, as I was watching, that this was the sequel I'd been waiting for for so many years. Boy, I feel stupid. If you loved the movie, that's fine, I just needed to vent. I've been bottling it up, and just had to finally let it out. Nin has a theory about Han not actually being dead, but I don't want to get my hopes up, because I, at this point, am coming to believe you can't go back. Star Wars was a huge part of my teenage/twenties, and I think that's all I get.



Yeah, not less emotional.

(I even did a private post testing the cut, so I didn't screw it up)

Nope, not the only one. My sister told me her best friend called her, in tears, immediately after coming home after the theater. I guess she'd loved Han since she was 6 years old. My sister hadn't seen the movie yet and didn't want to be spoiled. But the minute she heard her voice she knew only one thing could create such a reaction in her friend. It sounds silly, since this is a grown woman, married, with a child. But that's how it felt - like our childhood was destroyed. And for no other reason than to be cruel and "dramatic".

Take care!
