When The Story Ends

Yep, endings are still on my mind.

I've been thinking about that point in a story where you realise that the end really is near. You're on the last book in a series and you see that you only have about thirty pages left. There are only three episodes left to go in your favourite tv show. It's not long before the end credits roll on that movie you were waiting so long to see.

Sometimes you don't want the story to end. The thought of the story being over hurts too much.

Is it strange to feel that way? That even though the end usually means good has triumphed, you just want the story to carry on? You'd rather see the characters you love go through all that hardship again just so you can still be with them.

Are there any endings that have made you feel this way?

  1. There are so many books that I've read all but the last chapter of, and shows I've stopped watching just before the last episode, just for this reason. Sometimes I'd rather know that there's still something more of the characters I've come to love out there, than to have a story heatly wrapped up.
