Lost: The End

I can't believe I'm this happy with the finale. And absolutely SO FUCKING SAD. The Jack scene... with VINCENT... killed me! Crap. I really lost it over that. I REALLY needed all those feel-good reunions to counteract losing Jack like that. (And who knew that Sawyer would survive?) So many fic possibilities ... hey, even the didn't-work-out-for-all-eternity ship of Sawyer/Kate has infinite possibilities now that they're both part of the Ajira Six. (Mind is already whirling.) Jack and Sawyer totally have exam room reunion sex after running into each other in the hospital hallway...

In the end, I was very pleasantly surprised that their idea of Jack fits so closely with mine. (I forgot, until nearly the end, that I once ficced him going down with the island!) And so frickin' happy to see so many characters that were dead or that I thought were dead. (Although, "dead" on Lost has always been a pretty relative term.) It was like a Greatest Hits for the viewers. Awww!

I could have done without all the golden light, etc. (Ha, Jimmy Kimmel's moral for Lost: "Don't go chasing waterfalls.") But it didn't ruin the finale for me. I've gotten used to ignoring the things I'm not keen on.

Re: The churchy ending... I think they tried to be fairly pan-religious by having several different religious artifacts in the church's office there. FWIW. It could have been more overtly Christian, probably. (And ha, Kate laughing at the name Christian Shephard! I like that Darlton were able to make fun of themselves and it worked. And not in an annoying elbow-you-in-the-ribs way like Exposé or Arzt talking about the "cool kids.")

Anyway, it was an amazing ride. THANK YOU for everyone who's taken this ride with me. It wouldn't have been the same without you. I might not have kept watching this long. And I definitely wouldn't have this intense love of the characters. And so many great friends.

Also: I TOTALLY meant to put in my prediction poll that Claire would give birth. AGAIN. Because you just knew they had to go there, *sigh*. At least we didn't see anyone ELSE getting born! But there was so much I couldn't even begin to predict.

HEE at the alternate endings on JKL!

That's definitely what kept us coming back for more. And I think it was an acquired habit, too, or maybe an exercise in character, lol. Maybe this says it best, "Take what you need and leave the rest." We learned, and that's why we're still here, clinging to one another in this wonderful fangirl reunion. We are the ones who made it to the church, and the endless fanfic possiblilties are what lie in the bright light beyond the doors. I can't wait to see what comes next!

Pardon my very late reply! Took forever to recover.

Aww, I'm still feeling warm and peaceful about that finale. And very, very sad if I think about the Jack and Vincent scene again. I hear from casual viewers that they weren't happy: One person told me they thought the big reunion scene was "just for the cast." Which makes me feel like we're part of the cast, you know? Because I feel like that scene was for us.

It was good to be there until the very end. I'm so glad we didn't feel robbed or disappointed! And I'm sorry for people who do feel that way. I've had my issues with Lost over the years, but I think they did right by us and the heart and soul of the show.

Still basking in the finale and fandom love! ♥ Thanks for being part of this experience, hon!
