We've all been there. You've just been sitting there watching Netflix or reading a book being chill and minding your own business, and then BAM! The feels hit you right in the chest, and you're unable to function. You start to feel this emotional pain, and even when you step away from the TV or the book, the thought of what those characters are doing, why the author/creator decided to crush your feelings, or why those characters made such stupid/embarrassing/bad decisions consumes your mind entirely. It's tough being a fangirl, and I'm here to tell you, you're not alone, my friend. Here are a few times when my entire existence was crushed by a fandom. Spoilers ahead. You've been warned.
1. The last monologue in The Office
I thought it was weird when you picked us to make a documentary. But all in all...I think an ordinary paper company like Dunder Mifflin was a great subject for a documentary. There's a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn't that kind of the point?
You know what? I was crying through this entire episode, not gonna lie. That last line by Pam just really hit me though, man.
2. That kiss between Stiles and Lydia on Teen Wolf
3. Dobby's death in Harry Potter
Here lies Dobby, a free elf.
Literally all Dobby ever wanted to do was protect Harry and his friends, and J.K. Rowling decides to do this? I understand, but honestly Jo, DOBBY DESERVED BETTER.
4. Glenn's death on The Walking Dead
I knew it was coming, and I still wasn't prepared.
5. Rose and The Doctor's goodbye on Doctor Who
Quite right too. And I suppose...if it's my last chance to say it...Rose Tyler -
HE WAS GOING TO TELL HER HE LOVED HER. This was just unnecessarily cruel.
6. This entire scene honestly
Friends don't lie.
These children are my children. They're the cutest, sweetest, most talented little nuggets in the industry right now and deserve all the love and appreciation and good in the world. This scene was beautiful, and it's still beautiful after watching the entire show eight times.
7. Honestly anything that involves Jughead
(Throw in Betty Cooper for double the unwanted feels)
Cole Sprouse arose from his acting hiatus, ripped out my soul, and reminded me why he was always my favorite on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Seriously, every scene that Jughead is in is so emotional and powerful, and I've gotta say, he totally steals the show. And let's all face it, Bughead is adorable.
8. Rue's death in The Hunger Games
And last, but certainly not least...
8. Newt's death in The Death Cure
I'm not really interested in the way they're doing this in the movie, but in the book, it was unbelievably emotional reading about a sweet, selfless character spiral into insanity and ultimately being shot by his best friend.
This is a less popular fandom, but it still broke my heart into a million pieces. I must say, Newt has to be in my top five favorite characters of all time, and his death was really painful. Watch out for page 250, guys.
Really, we're all in the same boat. You wanna cry over a fictional character death? Go right ahead. You wanna be emotional about a ship? That's great! And if we're all completely insane for it, then...at least we have each other.
