#5FandomFriday: Fandom Deaths We're Still Upset About - GIANT SPOILERS AHEAD!

Welcome to my attempt at 5 Fandom Friday, where I try to contribute to a weekly meme but usually forget. This fun weekly postathon is hosted by The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. If you’re interested in joining up, check out future posting topics here.

Way to start off the weekend with a depressing subject, #5FandomFriday. I could honestly do a much longer list just from people who died in books that left me scared for days, but I’ve decided to go by a different criteria. These are the deaths that, whenever I start to think about them or talk about them, I still tear up, no matter how long ago these deaths happened.

So let’s all commiserate together about these painful deaths because they still hurt for me. Of course, MASSIVE CRAZY SPOILERS AHEAD FOR:

-        Serenity/Firefly

-        Supernatural

-        Lost

-        Feed by Mira Grant

-        Something Strange & Deadly series by Susan Dennard
