My Ramblings: Irrational Fears #1

Irrational Fears #1

Irrational fears. I like to assume that everyone has at least one. I've recently come to the conclusion that I have one that's been very predominant in my life in the past few months. It's the fear of a book series/tv show/movie franchise ending horribly (in my opinion).

Is it just me or does anyone else feel this way?

I noted the trend after the Hunger Games movie franchise ended and I read a spoiler. In my head, it couldn't end like that. To me, that was just wrong and I came to the conclusion that if I didn't see it, then it never actually happened. It also happened in the middle of the Divergent book series and the movies. As much as it pains me to say this: I still haven't watched the Vampire Diaries final episode because I'm scared it won't live up to my expectations.

If I were to count the amount of book series I chose to not finish reading because of this 'fear' we'd be here all day and, to put it plainly, it sucks. I like having concrete never-changing endings to everything I read. When I don't finish a book it bothers me just as much as my fear of it not living up to what I think it deserves.

I haven't found a way to combat this. I wish I had. The one time I pushed myself to face it head on, I cringed through 30 minutes of the last Hunger Games movies and gave up. I don't even remember what I saw, but I know that I don't want to experience it in the near future.
