#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!

watching the Air Supply concert with my brother was a bonding of sort. For me, its a happy ending :-)

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..

My response is uncharacteristically brief this week. Make the most of it - normal service will be resumed next week!

Two posts so far from my archives. I'm working on something new, too. Stay tuned.

Happy Ending, wonderful prompt!

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.

I always do this...I check the topic and then I write my post a day or so later and I am a little off. I wrote about my happily ever after. Close enough in my book!

I went the happy film route.. Happy music, happy faces... bring your barf bag. :))

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.

A bald bird teaches that passion can never be extinguished, just put on the back burner.

I have mine up. I write my own writing prompts site. Who needs another! :)

Laura - I'm going to go check out your site - can never use too many prompts.

Here is my call for new happy endings.

the school bus caught on fire...in Fossil, Oregon with a bus driver that had not left the Portland metro area...ever! Here is my grandson's Wordle. If you click on the image it will enlarge.

We are happy he made it home safe and sound. A happy ending to be sure.

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

I know that most players use aion kina to get a shiny cool weapon like other players in game. To enhance something, you need enhance stones with aion online kina. The process of enhancing is simple if you have aion gold. You can buy aion kina after clicking enhance. The equipment will be enhanced to the next level if you have more cheap aion kina.
