The Perfect Ending?

With a (very) tenuous link to Valentine’s Day,  yesterday we started discussing perfect endings, and which stories (book, film or TV) we’d always wanted to change the endings to.

As soon as the email went round there were instant shout outs of: Captain Corelli’s Mandolin! One Day! The Breakfast Club! I Capture the Castle! Pretty in Pink! (can you tell most of us are girls?) – all of which had unsatisfactory endings for Team Hot Key (see below for why!). Endings are very personal things it seems, and we all imagine them differently when we are part of a story.

So, what endings did you always want to see done differently for the stories you loved? And how?

Or, is there such thing as the Perfect Ending?
