Probably only norantiskitchen will be able to relate to this

Before I do anythign else today, I'm going to cry.
Oh yes, I shall.
Because I've just watched the final episode of the Season 4 of Farscape and NOW I'm suffering a mild form of post-traumatic stress disorder knowing that it's ended.
It's ended
IT'S ENDED.
No no nonononononononononooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

No no no. I almost refuse to accept this. It seems just too cruel that there will be no more Chiana, and D'Argo or Noranti. And I've loved them all.
And it seems just too cruel that
Farscape is over and Crichton and Erin are dust (although it's amazing what those sturdy engagement rings will survive).
It just hurts too much to fathom.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
Oh the fangirlish pain.

Edit Although the Farscape Outtakes are hilarious and did go quite some way towareds cheering me up.

The rest of us got fucked off when Sci-Fi cancelled the series over a year ago o-O.

Still, someone used Wizards of the Coast's Open Game Licence, and there is a half decent rpg available.

Yes, I didn't get a chance to properly catch Farscape when it was on telly, and I never saw the end so I was spared some pain.

Now however that I've got the DVDs I've been watching the whole thing from the start and falling in love with it again, so it's ending hurt.

But I'm cheered by the thought of mini series on sky in jan even though I don't get sky.

Re: cheers for the hope and the heads up
I am trying to get them to send me tapes - but they don't have any yet.

I have to write about it without seeing it!

rainsinger, you make me smile daily by mentioning mutual likes of mine - bellydancing, Firefly, Farscape . . And now you've honoured me by naming me in a post title! Got waaay overexcited by this. Not that I need online validation of my existence, but. It helps.

Believe me, I lived the pain for a long long time. I watched the last season knowing it was the end, my nose almost pressed against the screen.

Ah, frell - and the final build towards the end, with Aeryn's powerful 'Prayer' and the tale of the goddess Djancaz-Bru:

"And when the last warrior was dying he said 'We gave you everything, why did you destroy us?' and she looked down upon him and she whispered, 'Because I can.'"

Then the magnificent final 'We're So Screwed' triumvirate with Scorpy (my beloved misunderstood anti-hero) proving his quality. And Crichton kicking some without losing his own special poetry:

"Welcome to my cold war. Now what am I offered for all the powers of the universe?"

Offering Aeryn his bike if she kills Scorpy (noooooo!):

"I am Johnny radiation because of you Nosferatu. Everyone I care about west of the moon is here and in danger to make sure that you keep your mouth shut."

And generally putting our heartstrings through the mincer:

"Hi honey. Guess what I did at work today? I wore a bomb. A nuclear bomb in a field of flowers. I could get lucky. Tomorrow I could have a bigger bomb. I could kill more people. Maybe they'll be innocent people. Children, maybe."

Then to the end, with its 'previously on Farscape' prologue - a pic from every ep? - the magnificent, psycadelic colour of it. And John and Aeryn putting us and them all back together at the bitter end:

"You know what scares the hell out of me? From the first moment I layed eyes on you, I could never see the end.
- What scares me is I always could."

And the end of the ep with its hopeful/hopeless little 'To be continued . . '. By the Yotz, I howled at the tv some that night.

And after the end? Joined the other 'scapers in a postcard writing campaign we never/always believed would work. As someone on savefarscape.com put it: 'Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if the Farscape Fandom last for a thousand years, men will still say, This was their finest hour.' All this and I never write to my MP about anything actually important.

And we won.

And now? I have the Peacekeeper Wars. I've watched the first 2 minutes. I just can't watch more. Because after that it really will be all over. And it starts like this:

(Camera pans through wrecked interior of Moya and over Crichton, bruised, battered and unmoving.) (voiceover: Aeryn)
"You did it, John. All the fighting has stopped. There's no more dying. And all of a sudden? Three is not such a scary number. But no matter how wonderful this is, I will not accept it as a trade-off . . for losing you."
(Cut to huge fleet of scary-ass looking ships)

But for you, I will bring myself to watch it, check it's all there and then see if I can get a copy to you before I go off on my xmas travels.

This fangirl waffle was brought to you with love from Noranti: alien belly-dancer and keeper of Scorpy's codpiece.
