    Default Happily Ever After,, or NOT So Happily Ever After?

    Okay, basically I just finished watching Fate Stay Night. Probably not the usual guy title to watch, whatever.
    But I found it to be a fairly decent series. But it's one of those with the "not so happily ever after" endings. And I realized, I was curious to find out if others prefer that ending, or the "happily ever after" type?

    "Happily Ever After" = You know, the basic boy and girl meet, fight whatever evil, and live together happily ever after.
    "Not-so Happily Ever After" = The boy and girl struggle thru some evil or whatever, finally realize somewhere along the way they have fallen for eachother or were destined from the begin to be in love, but in the end are separated by fate.

    So, which do you really prefer?

    What an interesting kind of question! I recently went to see a film that also ended in such a way- not together but apart. I was surprised and saddened by the ending at first, but I think this sort of film/series/novel/etc. stays with one for longer because you can more relate to the characters. In the short, the happy ending makes you leave the theatre or wherever feeling better, but in the long, the sad ending stays in your heart, I think.

    Maybe that was too maudlin an explanation ^^*

    The latter. Happy ending is the worst cliché ever, also the biggest punch in the face to the verisimilitude of the said work of fiction.

    Personally I like the not so happy ever after. It fits my vision of a good romance movie/anime.

    I like happy endings. It always leads up to a sequel where Harrison Ford comes into your room, shoots your face, takes your woman and makes you look for crystal skulls.

    Happly ever after, of course.


    By the way, F/SN is most certainly a guy title, given it's based on an eroge visual-novel.

    The anime was pretty bad, but the v-n is fantastic.

    Happily ever after all the way for me. I like sugar, sugar-coating and well... anything sugar related.

    This world has too many tragedies and problems that everyone has to deal with daily, I want my final fantasy.

    I'm a hopeless romantic, btw.

    Well, when you get an eroge and take out all the sex and leave only the halfbaked story what do you expect?

    Actually, I probably shouldn't have said it was an eroge, though it was certainly 18+ (violence, gore, sexual content)

    Considering the author is a novelist and wrote it as a novel, quite a bit. Each of the three paths takes about 10 hours of constant reading to complete, and they individually have one ero scene, lasting no more than ~10 minutes.

    A second release of the game was made titled Fate/Stay Night: Realta Nua, as an all-ages game shortly after the original release.

    Happily Ever After is kind of cheesy. And if you want a sequal that doesn't involve Harrison Ford shooting you then having them separated seems more conducive to that.

    I like a bit of both.
    Given the example of RomeoXJuliet [My favorite anime thus far!] Where Romeo and Juliet are destined to be together, fall for each other...You all know the story of Romeo and Juliet, its based on that. The directer gives the idea that maybe in this form Romeo and Juliet may live actually alive together. And yet kills them off the same. Fated to be together. Live together, Die together.
    Another example of this would be Fruits Basket. Tohru Honda, the heroine of this story breaks the Zodiac curse and along the way falls for Kyo Sohma. They start dating in the second to last manga and they grow together. They were destined. And thats the way it was.
    On the other hand, I liked Peach Girl as well; Momo likes Toji, but in the end, even with all the fighting for them she ends up with Kiley [he has a different name in the anime.]
    *looks sad* Perhaps I didn't really give a good example for the other. But I still do like both. Its nice to see both happen from time to time.

    Sig made by me. <3

    I like a little of both as well. As long as there's some sort of positive out come I'm happy. Normally I do like the happily after ending, but yes, that ending can get pretty old.

    Personally i prefer the happily ever after but sometimes the not so happily ever after is for the best...or makes for a more interesting closure...

    I have an even better idea about this: A sequel where the baby is raised by rats and eventually sacrifices itself to save them. Years later, some scientist finds the bodies of both rat and cat armies, decides that it's too much for his fragile mind to handle and becomes an hero right there and then.

    I'm partial to stories made up of teams created out of necessity, not any latent romantic interest. Endings (happy or not) to me depend on the story being told, rather than my preference for which. I'm a sucker for a well-made, consistent, believable (within the realm of setting-established rules) story.

    I officially love this forum now, just because of the comment about rats raising the child, and the child being in the cellar and such.

    Funny thing is, you can actually choose which of the two endings fits the movie. You just have to watch it from the perspective of the opposition (i.e. the villain), that way, happily off party cause a not so happily ever after ending for the villain; or the not happily off party is a happy thing for the villain.
    Like when Joker lost (sorta) and good triumphed (yeah, right); that was a sad, sad ending indeed.

    Realism in context to the story leading up to the "ever after" is what I prefere.

    If it was a story about some tribal war in Africa, I'd not be quite certain I'd buy it if it ended with "then they ran away and everything was good. Fin."


    The rewards of tolerance are treachery and betrayal.

    Well, I don't know about child rearing based on the maternal intsincts of rodents, but that's just me, lol.
    I think I lean more towards the "Not-so happily ever after" myself. The Fate Stay Night was pretty good. Another good, funny, but touching one was Green Green. They finally find eachother, but wind up being separated by time. But there's just something more,, gripping about tragedy.
    Don't get me wrong though, there are a few good animes out there with the sugar-sweet happy endings, but like mentioned before, it depends on the story being told.

    Happy happy joy joy, as Stimpy would say. I don't want anything to go horribly wrong for my favorite characters.

    A happy ending. But now "Sweet sugar". I just don't like when characters separate, but I like when they stay together, but not live happily even after
    It is stupid to be afraid to die, but the most stupid thing is to be afraid to live.
