This is a question I thought I needed to ask, and since I'm asking I thought it only fair to answer it myself honestly, because every since 700s release, I have have been surprised by how much this has affected me, especially since it is over a fictional character.
In particular, Peter Parker and Mary Jane, every since the issue's release, it has been the most on my mind, I can't seem to go a whole day without thinking about it and wondering why did it have to happen this way, am I worried, a little. For you see I consider myself a rational person and to find myself treating these two as real people, has me questioning myself and possibly, my sanity ( I say with a little smirk). which makes me question the type of person I am, mainly whether or or not I am as put together as I thought I was.
If I am to surmise why I am being affected this way, I guess it's because I grew up with these two and have followed both since I began reading Amazing Spider-man and to find my two main favorite characters treated in this manner really made me angry, angry enough to voice my opinions, more than I have voiced for any other character that had a similar treatment. For instance 2 other characters that effected me about 3/4 of how I'm feeling now, so quite a bit, would be that of Silver Sable & Victoria Hand, for whom I created RIP (SS) (VH) topics, granted I jumped the gun with Silver Sable.
So I would like to ask if anyone else is having a similar experience to me, because if you're not, I think it would be time for me to re-evaluate myself :)
