comment “Into darkness” vs “Into the darkness”
@Derfder Likely because the darkness that is being described in the title isn't really a specific darkness... I'd read it as more of the description of Khan's character as pseudo-evil.

comment Phrase for experiencing a negative conclusion to a positive experience
@rhetorician Disenchanted or disillusioned is very close. The problem is that I want a phrase that gives equal credence to both my enjoyment of most of the experience and my ending with negative feelings. That is, I don't want to denigrate my previous emotions, even though I ended with a negative view. I feel like both the words you suggest in a way invalidate the prior experiences: you realize that the thing wasn't as good as you thought, and you were deluded to think otherwise. I'm honestly not sure there is even a real phrase to describe this...

comment Is it ever more appropriate to use “cognizant” over “aware”?
I'm going to agree with JeffSahol here (though I'm still giving a +1). I've never actually heard cognizant used in an attempt to sound pretentious, though I'm sure it could be....

comment Is “very crucial” redundant?
Slightly off-topic: Would the "very" when saying something is "very crucial" compared to something else that is merely crucial still be redundant?

comment Use of “whatever” vs “whatsoever”
It could be abbreviating the phrase "whatever occurs, Dump no waste".
