If you don't have a happy ending in an epic, then everyone dies and people come kill the author. If they DO have a happy ending, the epic ends up cliche and boring and people kill the author.

That's why I've gone on the sci-fi, rather than fantasy.

Well I've never even finished a story so I don't have to deal with that problem .

I love how in fantasy, no matter what happens, anything is possible. That and the imagery is awesome!

I'm a fan of the magic myself. I mean hundreds of people can be strong, or smart, or funny, but able to control fire? It's a little less common.
I don't know, I've just always been a fan of the spectacular.

If we can't do it, we always ponder on the "what if we can."

I think I'll go for the story, that's what I voted for. But really, what is not to like about fantasy??? ^.^

I love fantastic writing because you can do anything with it. It can be something completely new and different.
