There are plenty of not happy endings. And the climax comes before the ending.
Not to mention. Fairy tales are meant for children mostly. Just like old school nursery rhymes. They are handed down. And who wants to end a story with a sad/angry/ gruesome ending. Its kind of like "whats the point".


I never said a sad/angry/gruesome ending.And the endings are so predictable!

I think the reason is because authors lack originality and honestly I think the whole "happily ever after" is so cliche. Maybe readers like the whole happily ever after thing because secretly they hope that they will someday have an ending like that. Personally i love stories that end in a twist but sometimes its not the ending that i was hoping for and maybe thats the reason people prefer happy endings sweatdrop


The reason that stories have "happy endings" is because a reader doesn't want to get to the end of a 400 page story to find out that their favorite character dies, or doesn't end up triumphant. It would end up being a waste of time for the reader to have gone through so much with the protagonist only to be screwed out of something good happening from all the pain and chaos of the novel. (I'm talking about actual well-written fiction stories: The Song of Wind and Fire series by George R.R. Martin, The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis, Harry Potter by J.K Rowling, even The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Not Twilight and other toilet paper.) If you're looking for books with less happy endings, I suggest reading anything by John Green, though I'd recommend starting with Looking For Alaska.

i think if they just make one movie then it should have an happy ending but if there going to make more movies like example (lion king) the should make the first show sad so people will come back to see what happens xd

Every new beginning is some other beginning's end
At some point, one of the characters is going to die--or both will. Or, they'll divorce.
There are no happy endings for the characters... Just for us. The author is usually kind enough to spare us any more drama
It's cool to be left in suspense.

I personally think that happy endings are over-rated... but they're fairy tales and not real life so what can you expect? yum_strawberry


But why do all fairy tales have happy endings,they could be just amusing with a twist.


actually there are many fairy tales that ORIGINALLY had really harsh stories to tell and most certainly not a happy ending, can't be a happy ending if the protagonist of the tale dies gruesomely, or can it?
No, I think that Happy endings are sweet and good. Expecially since I've been dreaming about my "Happily ever after" for a while now,,,
