Why we mourn fictional characters: The very real emotion behind fake death

We grow up with the characters we love. We see them at their best and worst; we know their weaknesses and their strengths. We exalt their victories and mourn their losses, and we flare with anger and frustration when they are challenged or antagonized. Imperfect as they are, we accept them, and, like our friends in real life, we often overlook and excuse their bad behavior simply because we love them.
