Throne Room by Inspector97
What can I say about the passing of Carrie Fisher Her departure
from this Earth was a shock to us all. From the heart attack
to her reported stabilisation, to her loss. A piece of my childhood
is broken. 2016 has been very greedy and harsh to our pop
culture icons. I know I've personally lost a bunch.

I'd once remarked to James Doohan (Scotty) that I've been watching
him so long I figured he'd know me... he didn't get the joke sadly.

But in some ways these characters are extended members of the family
or shards of ourselves we want to shine forever. I will miss her. She now joins
those who have gone to join the living Force.

I was expecting this unfortunately. 25 minutes of CPR combined with no true news about her condition had me very worried. This is a TERRIBLE DAY.

Fucking 2016 is a nightmare... Such a huge loss this one is, a woman who carved out a great place in the word for herself and should be remembered for far more than just her silver screen career.

Such a tragedy...To be honest I wasn't a fan of Leia but I did like her character itself and the actor executed her character greatly. She's in a better place now.

To one of the most reconizable and possibly one of the greatest Sci-fi heroines out there.
I'm no fan, but you're right about the extended family and shards of ourselves, these are characters we identify with and grown up with and shaped our lives and society. Carrie's gone, but she left behind a legacy.

I just returned from the movies, watching Rogue One and I return to these news ...
I don't know how to feel about that :O

My condolences go to her friends and family and also all the fellow Star Wars fans, who feel as baffled and shocked by this as I do right now.

Your own words are what you can say, and they were definitely heartfelt. Thank you. And yeah, she was... and still is... awesome and iconic.
