    Ambigous Endings

    I’d figure that an analysis on ambiguous ends in literature seems to warrant some serious thought.I’d like somebody to write about the psychology related to an open-ended plot..Movies could do as well.Anime is also an option

    • Do you have specific works in mind? Choosing some might help anchor the topic. – Stephanie M. 2 months ago

    • Looks good under the topic of writing as the discussion could be the value of an ambiguous ending using various examples of how it works in various mediums. – Munjeera 2 months ago

    • Before We Go is a Chris Evans movie about two people who meet in New York. He is on his way to connect us with the love of his life who has become an old flame and she is deciding to end her marriage. I can't say the ending because it will be a spoiler but the ending is ambiguous. Unusual for a romantic comedy. – Munjeera 2 months ago

    • An ambiguous ending to a novel will undoubtedly leave open the window to future renditions. Even in a happy-ending scenario, there is potential for reversal of fortune (leading to another compilation). There is always the possibility that the reader massaged the original plot into a flavor consistent to their unique palate; one the author could conceivably exploit into several more chapters, or sequels. An unresolved ending builds the kind of tension and momentum that brings loyal readership back to the watering hole, so to speak. That is not to say that critics won't take notice either, for ambiguity fuels their ire as well. – lofreire 2 months ago

    • Damn! You beat me to it. I was going to suggest a very similar topic. On a personal note, I rather enjoy ambiguous endings or those that credit the audience with enough intelligence to work things out for themselves. We are all too often given spoon-fed answers that discourage us from thinking...and we are a thinking species after all! – Amyus 2 months ago

    • Are ambiguous endings sometimes done so as to leave the way open for a sequel? Or it can be a sci-fi device... – JudyPeters 2 months ago

    The best argument is to accept that true peace is but an ideal and that patriotism is the only tonic for the ills of the world

    Hate always has reason behind it… and that is love…Love isn’t rational

    Naruto: In Defense of the Uchiha Clan

    Hmm.I have never considered Naruto to be a morality tale. It is at its best a rejection of dogma.I admire the Uchihas as well as the Senjus, yet all of those tragedies are inevitable… Danzo’s massacre of the Uchiha may have been unnecessary in your opinion and I agree that the wholesale slaughter of the clan wasnt right, yet even Danzo did that in the interest of the Leaf Village.He took upon himself the dirty deeds necessary for Internal Security since Hiruzen was more obsessed with his quest for peace.Ultimately true peace is not desirable “You can either have peace or you can have freedom.You can’t have both ‘-Robert Heinlein

    The Hypocrisy of The Hunger Games

    I thoroughly agree with this interpretation….That being said the YA wave coincides with the information wave , giving instantaneous messages to the ever rebellious youth…..That si why the rebel archetype is used…..

    The Rising Popularity of Dystopian Literature

    Hmm..Actaully, I kind of like Fairy Tail as a series which strengthens my belief in humanity. Redemption and absolution is something which resonates throughout Gajeel, Jellal , Ur and Meredy.I do feel that a significant character death coudl actually strengthen the plot. Duex Ex Machina aside, I loved Wendy having to choose between Carla and the guild, something which reveals the maturity of the youngest witch… Irony at its finest
