Endings are difficult things to get right in canon. They need to tie up any major loose ends and make some sort of sense. They can be wrapped up in a bow (“so the curtain falls on the March family”) or left ambiguous (“and his fate is known only to those who venture into the deeps”). They can be triumphant or depressing, realistic or entirely fantastical, predictable or unexpected, controversial or satisfying, or some mixture of those two extremes. But if the fans aren’t reconciled to them, the creator has a lot to answer for.
So, people, what endings were you dissatisfied with?
The ending you choose to change doesn’t have to be a series finale or the last few pages of a book; it can be the end of a season, an episode/chapter or a character’s story arc.
Remember the rules!
No more than three prompts in one fandom.
No more than five prompts in a row unless one of your prompts is filled. Then you can prompt again.
Spoilers in prompts may be unavoidable, but please do your best to word them as ambiguously as possible.
If your fill contains spoilers, please warn in bold and leave at least three spaces.
Fandom, Character, Prompt
Fandom, Character/Character, Prompt
Fandom, Character + Character, Prompt
LotR(/Silmarillion), Gollum, he goes to the Havens
Tortall, Jon/Thayet, Alanna doesn’t return in #4
Any, any + any, they die in a different way from canon
