Yep! Welcome to me and 1983, exiting Return of the Jedi. That's life, and in 20 years, some young man will make the same post about a different film series, and you will read it and smile a little, like I did reading your post....I never imagined that the end will be so difficult, it's like I've lost my best friends, like I had to leave place I love, things I love, and fer sure our lifes will change now, I know we can read books and other works, watch films, play games and everything, but that's not it. There won't be midnight parties anymore, we won't live for another book, film, game anymore, waiting for trailers, pictures, our lifes will change and eventually fandom will die as every fandom does...
I'm patting you on the head in a non-patronizing way - it'll be okay, as long as you keep that childhood feeling alive inside of you as you progress through your life. That's what I do, and it is very reassuring to know I can always feel young at heart when I think of Star Wars.
