Why Do We Care When Characters Die?

Interesting thoughts on this subject here. My thoughts? Because we get lost in a good book, movie or TV show. Sometimes we even “live” vicariously through them! The characters become our friends and family. sometimes we even see ourselves in various characters. When they die (or otherwise move on) we loose part of the magic. Just my 2 cents 😉

Did you cry when Bambi’s mom got shot?

It’s okay. You can admit it. Though we know they’re not real, the death of fictional characters evokes real emotion in us. I find that amazing. After all, when fictional character die, we’re essentially mourning the loss of someone who does not, has not, and never will, exist.

The question is: why? Why do we care when a nonexistent character bites the dust?

I don’t claim to know the answer. But I do have some theories.
