Do you prefer stories (movies, books) with happy ending or sad ending? :)

Well, happy endings always calm my trembling little heart, but dramatic, sad endings are much more desired for some stories sometimes... :):):) ^^

Right off the bat, I would say happy... but then when I think about it.. some of the best stories I've read are sad ones... SO BOTH!!

It depends on the story, one of the worst things that can happen is when I author tries to force an ending happy or sad that doesn't fit what came before it.

I can't help it. I'm a sucker for happy endings, even if I know it's not realistic.

Really depends on what you're watching/reading. In the back of my head I'm always rooting for a happy ending, but a lot of the time it seems unrealistic.

My first reaction was happy endings, and I really am a sucker for happy endings, but it really does depend on the story. Some of my favorite books have sad endings that work really well for them where a happy ending would have just been really out of place.

I need happily ever after, anything else makes me pissy, although I do have to say I love the sad episodes of Doctor Who, sometimes they're just done so well...

I prefer realism, and hate all the happy endings tacked onto otherwise decent stories (I assume for sales, since many demand it).

Happy or semi-happy endings are the most satisfying to me. Like, sad things may happen in the end but I like a good resolution. For example, in a good book I read recently the main character died at the end so it was technically sad but the character got what he wanted before he died and went out happy so it was still a happy ending to me. I mean, it was pretty clear from the beginning that he was going to die so this was the best possible ending for the situation.

I prefer a good read over a happy ending or sad ending.

I don't care what the story is, I always prefer happy endings. Sad endings are such a bummer.

It depends on the story I guess. I don't like happy endings that feel forced.

I love tragedy and I love real life. I love the unpredictable. I want stories to feel real and not predictable.

I don't care about the endings, I love happy sometimes, and I love sad sometimes. As long as it feels real, I am good!!!

It depends on the story, and my mood. A happy ending that just screams deus ex machina is so much worse than a fitting sad ending.

I agree with you, completely.

I just like movies with definite endings, Some movies just don't end, its like they stopped a story mid paragraph, that I can't handle, but happy or sad I'm usually good (though I may cry) just so long as it ends

It really depends. Of course, I'd prefer a happy ending, but not if it is out of place, or if a sad ending makes a point. Bitter-sweet is always a good way to go.

It definitely depends on the story and my mood. On the whole, though, I would say the stories that are the most thought-provoking and moving to me are ones with sad endings.

This reminded me of a quote from Doctor Who (not sure why). "I love old things. They make me feel sad...It's happy for deep people." That being said, I think the best endings are a mix of the two or fall outside of the realm of "sad" and "happy."

Really it just depends on the story. But I'd prefer happy ending movies. I always hate when your pulling for something to happen and then it doesn't.

It depends on the story. Sometimes if every story has a happy ending it just seems too unrealistic. I will say that I love happy endings more.

One thing I hate is when a story has no finite ending. The ones where you are left to make up your own mind as to how the story officially ends. I hate that and think it's a cop out.

I say sad ending because for the longest time, all horror movies for some reason no matter how unrealistic it was, had happy endings, I like the ones with sad endings because it is much more realistic. Why is it that we always have to escape the bad guy? Or survive the disease? Or get back together with our one true love?

I generally like sad endings or bittwersweet endings since I usually opt for dramas and psychological films, but there are exceptions where a happy ending is completely called for, I'll admit... I'm just not often keen on the kind of stories and movies they're appropriate for.

I preffer movies and books that have BELIEVABLE endings, I like to feel like I can somewhat relate to the movie or book and I'd like to think how it would end if I were in those shoes and believe me all those happy ending movies wouldnt end so happy if I was the main character lol I'd stay getting shitted on because life doesnt always have a happy ending.

It depends what mood I am in and what I am expecting from the movie. Nothing annoys me more than to go see a romantic comedy and want to get a typical romance and in the end the characters don't end up together, but they "learned a lesson." I hate that. I am going to see a romantic comedy for a reason- to have a happy ending. But I do love a good sad movie every once in a while- they make me think!

I prefer stories that have appropriate endings. If I'm reading a sad book and the author pulls a happy ending out of thin air, I'm going to be disappointed.

I think I'm more moved by meaningful endings where the movie or book ends and leaves me with something very deep or introspective to mull over. That "a ha!" lightbulb moment is priceless.

No preference.

I think some may think an ending is sad, while others may read the same story and think it's happy. I also think sometimes endings can make me mad moreso, than either

Prefer happy endings but it really does depend on the story. For example...

The ending of Dear John, though sad and bitter sweet suited the story.
