#116 -- Happy Ending

That's the prompt this week: Happy Ending. Maybe you can write a short fable with a happy ending, or you can reimagine a scenario you know of to give it a happy ending you wish it had had. Or, you can just write about "endings." What "endings" are there in life, besides the obvious one? (You can write about that too.)

And for fun, here's a link to some preposterous (and very imaginative) prompts that you will never find here. Bonus points if you do any of them!

endings are also beginnings.

When is a happy ending not a happy ending? That's the question this piece poses. This is my first for a little while. I've been off writing for a few weeks but I'm slowly getting back.

I second frizzy scissorhands' (and Mr Eliot's) emotion.

Hey!! I tried out one of the prompts on the alternate link provided this time. Kinda juxtaposed something I personally experienced onto something fictional.. Completely agree with frizzy.. Every ending is actually a beginning..

I wrote a "reverse" fairy tale when I was in college, which started at the end and kind of rewound. I should try to find that on my ancient floppy disks or old college notebooks.

Anyway, here's a poem. A Fairy Tale

difficult to get down to doing this for me - i'm not in a happy ending place just now, but i tried!

I left off the "happy" part of the prompt. Sorta. This ending is a bittersweet one.

Okay, now I've done it -- and I may live to regret it! I've combined both the SS "happy ending" prompt with one of Don Wiencek's prompts.

It's all here in Deus Ex Machina.

By coincidence I've just rewritten a rather dark poem and in the process given it a much brighter ending:

I remembered that when I started playing this Rohan game with some little cheap rohan money. rohan crone has many ways for us to use. When you start the Rohan Online game, your character will be level 1. My friends all told me that the best way to spend rohan online gold is a good way. But I could not like spending my own rohan online crone. If you do not like upgrading level step by step, you can cost rohan gold to help your character to reach level high.

Once I played 4story, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have 4story Luna. He gave me some 4story Gold, he said that I could buy 4story Luna, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some 4story money, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell cheap 4story Luna to anyone who want.
