This is so fucking embarrassing I've name changed.

If you watched Our Girl, you will know that one of the main characters Elvis died last week. I had a major crush on him and I cried on the episode that he died because it was very sad how they portrayed his love interests grief.

However here is the embarrassing bit - a week later and I still feel sad about it!! Every time I see stories about it in the news I feel really sad. Now, the rational part of me has thought it might be because my DH looks like Luke Pasqualino (who plays Elvis), especially when he was in Skins but facially he still looks like him now. So I think my sadness is because maybe I relate him to my DH?!?

Tell me I'm not fucking bonkers. Please tell me about your similar stories to stop myself feeling so stupid - and don't worry I've already given myself one of these biscuit

ElvisElvisElvis Sun 05-Nov-17 20:55:54

Oh god am I really the only one that has done this!!!! blush

Thanks for that. I know it was on a few days ago but I hadn't caught up with it yet as I was watching the also-spoiled GBBO when it was on.

Note to self: leave MN or stop watching TV.

He is very gorgeous! He’s going to be in a new programme Snatch I think on Sky so you can get you fix from that!

ElvisElvisElvis Sun 05-Nov-17 21:00:48

How did you not see it all over social media and in the papers???

ElvisElvisElvis Sun 05-Nov-17 21:01:36

curry I'm going to start watching that. It's not really my sort of thing but 😍

WheresTheEvidence Sun 05-Nov-17 21:02:24

I also wasn't aware of the spoiler. I am only on episode two. Thanks OP

ElvisElvisElvis Sun 05-Nov-17 21:03:55

Oh fgs how can you not know, it's been all I've seen on the internet since last Tuesday

FFS! If you’re going to post spoilers the least you could do is put a warning in your title. How bloody inconsiderate 😡

I actually feel the loss of shows when they come to an end. It's silly on one level, but on another a well written story brings out an emotional connection, and yes sometimes that connection is with an unconscious part of your mind. I don't know this show our character you're talking about but I don't think your reaction is silly.

Elvis you are not alone. I felt like a part of me died as well when Dr Derek Shepherd died in Greys Anatomy - could.....not......stop.....crying <emotions have returned - cracks open the wine>

Probably best to mention a spoiler alert in the title.
You may get flamed!
I don't watch it but major crush when he was in skins and still not over how that ended for him shock

ElvisElvisElvis Sun 05-Nov-17 21:07:10

It happened last fucking Tuesday!!! I can understand it if I had posted the day after, Jesus Christ! So would you all be blasting if I had posted a thread about GBBO winner?! Probably not!

ElvisElvisElvis Sun 05-Nov-17 21:09:22

standard I didn't watch Skins but I heard how the storyline went for him (best not say in case I get bloody flamed by someone that hadn't caught up on the series for years ago 🙄) and was told that people mourned Freddie!

ElvisElvisElvis Sun 05-Nov-17 21:10:14

user I will have to look this up! I've not watched greys anatomy

No similar feelings here I'm sorry for your loss wink

Maybe it is because he resembles your DH. It'll pass, honest. If it doesn't - seek help know I'm not helping

Redglitter Sun 05-Nov-17 21:14:15

Might be worth reporting your OP to get MNHQ to edit the title

ElvisElvisElvis Sun 05-Nov-17 21:16:22

Fucking hell im new to MN I didn't know about putting spoilers in the title. It was nearly a week ago it was shown and its been all over the Internet how devastated the fans are, I'm hardly the first to announce it. Idiot really? Nice.

ElvisElvisElvis Sun 05-Nov-17 21:17:07

I didn't even know how to report my thread, that's how new I am

Treysanatomy Sun 05-Nov-17 21:19:16

Dr Derek Shepherd dies in Greys Anatomy?!

Fuck’s sake.

juddyrockingcloggs Sun 05-Nov-17 21:19:35

I am still not over the final episode of Ashes to Ashes and I don’t think I ever will be!

RainbowBriteRules Sun 05-Nov-17 21:20:24

Also hadn’t watched it. Would have avoided anything with the show’s title in the thread title. Not much point watching it now. At least you have saved me a few hours. Press the three buttons that appear on your posts to report if you are on the mobile site. Not sure on other versions.
