Okay, I’m not really looking for ideas about how to end The Auralia Thread.
The first draft of The Ale Boy’s Feast is very roughly drafted, and by the time the fireworks go off on the 4th, I’ll have given a readable version to the editors. (It feels like I’m preparing to take a patient with worrying symptoms to the doctor to await a diagnosis.)
I know how it ends. And I get a little shaky just thinking about the questions that I won’t pursue to full resolution, and the unexpected resolutions that have emerged for characters like the Ale Boy, Cal-raven, Jordam the beastman, loyal Tabor Jan, and the elusive mage Scharr ben Fray.
But working on this, and watching Toy Story 3, has me wondering…
What has been, for you, the most satisfying conclusion to a series – in literature, film, or television? What final scene packed the most punch for you?
I’ll just say it now: The responses to this question are likely to be loaded with spoilers. So do not read them if you don’t want spoilers!
