C and I finished watching QaF finally last night. I felt a little sad. But not because of how it was ending. Just that same sadness I feel everytime I've watched from start to finish. Saddness that it's over.
But I also experienced something I've never had before. 0 angst over the ending. I've been embracing the ending for years now. After that first initial WHAT? But i've still always felt a twinge of angst. Now there was none.
I can honestly say I LOVED THE ENDING. It was perfect. Not sort of perfect. Just perfect.
How anyone watches it and thinks that where the b/j story ends I will never understand. Nothing about that episode speaks of an ending of B/J to me. There is only a really beautiful new begining. Like they've finally gotten it right.( this where I descend into some badly written meta-ish thoughts about why i like the ending )
