I'll have to second what Remus and DyspraxiaNoMore said. Grief is a very personal emotion, and we all deal with it differently.

From my own experience: when my Grandpa died two years ago, I didn't grieve for him outright, but I wasn't myself. I guess the blues sort of snuck into my everyday life-- I found myself more consumed by negative emotions than I normally was. I got angry at everything... I never made the connection that it had anything to do with my Grandpa, until I talked to someone I trusted, and after discussing my Granda, I felt so much lighter just to get that out.

Long story short: I don't think there's a "normal" way to grieve. Fictional or no, people who affect your life affect your life... And grieving them is something completly subjective.

When my great grandmother died, my sister and my mother cried for an hour or so, but I couldn't cry at all. (This was in 2003). I think I cried briefly and silently at the funeral, but other than that I didn't really go through a mourning period.
