All good things . . . why do I feel like crying?

Standard
This is from Sir Peter’s FB page. Feel asleep early, then endured a painful night filled with strange dreams. Feeling melancholy today after a late start.
The last shot.
Big monitors, main unit. Small screens bottom right, splinter.
We’re neck and neck … Shooting our final shots at the same time. … 10.32 pm. 4 or 5 takes so far.
No, wait … Done! While I was typing this, we shot more takes and finished! Richard was fantastic. Splinter almost done. Minutes away.
Smiles and happiness… And sadness. Yikes, very sad.

As I’ve discussed elsewhere, it’s hard to bring something you’ve worked so hard and lovingly at creating to an end. I have a hard time saying goodbye to my extended fanfictions–did some of you ever think I’d finish “Truce”? Same thing with “Dangerous to Know.” Obviously, I didn’t want to do so.
All good things . . . it must be a very bittersweet time for Sir Peter, the cast and crew. Richard loved playing this character, that is clear. He loved talking about Thorin and the crafting of this unforgettable character. He’s invested so much of himself into it. Will it be a little hard to truly let go and move on?  I wonder.
Thank you, dearest Richard, and dear Sir Peter and everyone for all your hard work and dedication and sacrifice and talent. I am proud of you. And yes, I am a little sad.
At least Sir Peter had the faithful Mr. Smudge to provide him with furry solace.  Oh, gosh, that cat reminds me so much of Lucky with longer fur–now I feel like crying all over again.  What a day!

So I look at these photos with such a mixture of emotions . . . pride, happiness, sadness . . . curiosity as to what will come next for Richard and the rest. And will RA and PJ work together again? I truly hope so.

Don’t worry, Guyday Friday will still make an appearance here. It’s not often we come to the end of such an era . . .
