你不是一个人!英语中也有专门的术语来描述这种状态,比如“后书蓝调”或者“后系列剧蓝调”,在中国互联网上被称为“终结综合症”。
这种综合症指的是看完一本书或看完一部剧后的压抑和空虚感,以及知道这段旅程结束了却不想结束的苦涩感。
We all have those pangs of stress around the last few episodes of our current favorite TV show, about the junction where there will be no “Next Episode” button to click. For many hours, days, and weeks, we invest ourselves in the plot, characters, and the world of the show, only to realize that it — after all — exists inside a screen.
我们最喜欢的电视剧的结尾,我们都有这种压抑的感觉,因为没有下一集可以点击的按钮。在过去的几个小时、几天、几周,我们全身心投入到一部剧的剧情、人物和世界中,才意识到它终究只存在于一个屏幕上。
You get a story, escapism, possibly even life-changing revelations. In return they get your undivided attention. But what happens when you finally re-emerge from that transaction? The longer it goes on for, the harder the end seems to be.
你有一个好故事,一个逃避现实的世界,甚至可能是一个改变你生活的重要启示。作为回报,这些故事会得到你全心全意的关注。然而,当你在这种交流中从大梦中醒来,会发生什么?你沉浸其中越久,就越难离开。
对这种症状的一种解释是,你在阅读或追剧的过程中遇到了故事中的人,对他们的喜怒哀乐产生了同情,仿佛和他们成了朋友。
It's a sense of loss that you feel at the end of a book and you're grieving. It's like saying goodbye to so many friends you've made, because you've got to know this person over the course of the book and now there's no more connection, and this is why sequels do so well – it's that continuity.
读完一本书,你会有一种失落感,就像和你的很多朋友说再见一样。因为你是在看这本书的时候认识的人物,但是合上书之后,你们就没有任何关系了。这也是续集往往成功的原因,因为它有这种情感的延续性。
有时候,为了避免失去这种情感联系,有些人甚至会刻意选择弃书弃剧。
One key to emotional connection is the all-important protagonist. It's why some people deliberately don't finish certain books, because either they may not want to know what happens to a favourite character, or the end of a special read is worth prolonging…forever.
这种情感联系的关键之一是剧中至关重要的主角。这就是为什么有些人故意不读完一些书,因为他们可能不想知道他们喜欢的角色发生了什么,或者想无限延长这个阅读旅程的结束.....永远。
但是,无论离别有多难过,我们还是要感谢一个好故事给了我们梦想,然后带着它留给我们的精神食粮,回归现实,好好生活。
Fiction and non-fiction stories have always been there to help catch our fall during troubled times. It's pure, healthy escapism.
在生活的困难时期,当我们跌倒时,小说和非小说故事总能抓住我们。这是一种纯粹健康的逃避主义。
