"There is nothing staid, nothing settled, in this universe. All is rippling, all is dancing; all is quickness and triumph." - Virginia Woolf, The Waves.
|Chasing Butterflies and Happy Endings|
In years gone by, I'd pick up a novel, devour chapter upon chapter, each faster than the previous, knowing that each page would bring me closer to the inevitable happy ending. Imagine my horror when I first came across a book where that final scene never ensued. As a young girl, I can't tell you how much those nonsensical endings used to annoy me. Everyone loves a happy ending, we love reading fiction and might I suggest - a few of us actually enjoy belting out a good old Whitney Houston love song. Do you ever wonder, though, if all these happy endings lead us down that eternal path of destiny with blinders on? And should we, in fact, be reading more genres with the not-so-rosy-endings. The thought has crossed my mind. How about you? Do you always give your heroine a happy ending, or not?
