    I've written just about every genre there is, and they have all been, without fail, happy and satisfying endings. I guess I'm old fashioned. But you would never catch me writing and ending a book like Black Swan or Million Dollar Baby. With my health issues, it would probably be enough to send me off the deep end.

    There is always a place for happy endings, tragic ones, and those in-between.

    All you artist-types that give your characters some kind of free-will and sentience. No. Not me.
    I outline and build a story arc. I make adjustments, the way an architect must sometimes modify a blueprint.
    Whether the end is happy or not is irrelevant to me. I don't write as a servant beholden to my master-reader. Perhaps that's why I suck at writing fiction: I'm a bad liar.
    Stuff is what it is. If it makes you happy, that's just fine. If it makes you sad, IDGIF.
    But some have a propensity to pandering, and making others "like" them. Good luck with that.

    I like both dark endings and happy endings depending if the story warrants it or not. There are some stories where happy ending actually work quite well, and if they chose to go with a dark ending, it would have been a cop out, believe it or not, in my opinion. And then there are some where going for the happy ending would have been the cop out. It all depends on the story before the ending.
