    Default Would you rather...?

    The title probably mislead you a little, considering "Would you rather?" is a game, but I have a question...

    You're reading a really good book series, and you are attached to the main character, but for the sake of having a dramatic and good story, would you prefer:

    A) The main character is a martyr (a person who dies for their cause), and in this case, succeeds with their "mission".

    OR

    B) The main character lives successful with their "mission", and has a wonderful and normal life again until death.

    Lol, I like you're post, but I'm very confused on how you thought of these two choices. :/

    Legitimately the only two options of a story's ending, unless it ends controversially (like the characters fate is undecided and it is up the reader to interpret).

    A) If only because I end up a hot mess on the floor. At least I know it was enjoyable. Until I burst into tears yet again.

    The main character is a villain and takes over the world as an emperor.

    A, Mainly because of my taste in books. Id rather have action leading until their death instead of maybe some action and a period of peaceful times the death.
    Its all up to personality tho

    I like my in-depth characters to live because if they die at the end, it feels like everything he/she does is wasted. Because he/she is dead. :c

    I wouldn't consider it "new", but rather shamed back in the older literary days considering people longed and only knew happy endings. Publishers and authors had some belief that there was some specific "chart" to how a story was plotted (this was commonly used for novels such as The Lord of the Rings) and was defeated by a "sad ending".
