personally, i think you should do what’s most natural for the story. if everything was leading to a sad ending, then by all means, make a sad ending. same with a happy ending. it could even depend on the choices you make.


I generally go for happy endings. I honestly hate sad endings.

I love sad endings sometimes. Depends what genre. I prefer sad endings in thrillers, horrors, and mysteries

I like Happy endings but sad endings also give the story a new point of view, especially if there’s a sudden plot-twist

You can do whichever suits your story plot the best

I really like the stories that would at first end sad but then would be plot twist and BOOM happy ending.

I like happy endings because I’d prefer my heart to be safely inside my body, and not in pieces on the floor, but I tend to write sad endings myself by default haha.

Sad endings for me. They’re more realistic
