Alice Lin! (Congratulations!) I liked Alice’s entry because of the parallels between the fans and characters. Having interacted with various Lost online communities, I’ve seen and experienced the parallels firsthand.
Thanks again to everyone who did enter the contest. It’s been fun! I look forward to continuing the conversation with Lost fans!
When LOST started- we were all strangers- the fans and the characters. After “The End” – we’ve ended together as have the characters. I found the finale immensely moving and heartfelt. I smiled and cried in seeing the reunions, and had my own realization that we play such an important part in one another’s lives. We need each other- good and bad, right or wrong. We teach each other and help one another on this journey called life. The enlightenment for the characters felt like an enlightenment for myself. Understanding how we impact each other- I think that was the purpose and is the greatest lesson of LOST.
