Dearest Fringers:

This is your opportunity to participate in the making of my cheesy Rudo/Amy fic, Warming Up. I swear this isn't a ploy to get you to read my fic, only if you've been following it now you can have a say in its outcome. Exciting, right? Well, I think so. :D

So here's the deal. Rudo and Amy are in wuv, Algol is on the brink of destruction, their future is highly uncertain, and...

YOU DECIDE!!!

I have ideas for two endings. Without spoiling them, here's what you get to vote on:

1) The happy ending. Though this is PSII we're talking about, so it's "happy" as in, "not as crappy as it could be; at least we [not going to spoil what it is]."

2) Totally bittersweet ending full of tears, but not typical "everything bad that could happen, happened" cliché anime ending.

One or the other, eh? My, decisions, decisions!

I'm a total sucker for a good tragedy; a tragic ending would be dramatic and intense, but I also love the feel-good sweetness of a happy ending... y'know, something that will leave the audience saying, "D'aaaaaaw."

Man, this is a toughy...

How about... both? :lol:

I almost forgot: This ending will actually be the epilogue, and it will take place during PSIV's time. Both of them. So, they're both a look back on past events.

:yikes: That is an awesome idea!

Well, okay, how about this - since the ending of PSII is um, pretty tragic, how about the ending to the fanfic is more of a happy one, filled with hope?

Whatcha think, T-chan? :D

Ha! T-chan! I'm loving all the channing going on today (man, I need to go to bed).

I really love the vision I have for the happy ending. It's so sweet and "AWW!!" and makes my heart happy (I am SUCH a girl) AND I SWEAR IT'S NOT CHEESY (*ahem* disclaimer), but the bittersweet one pulls me in that "Wow, that's just... OMG, I'm going to cry!" sort of way.

*sigh* That's why I need y'all's help.

I'm wondering if I should inquire about storyline specifics...

Hm. Well, it's a tough call, but what do you think would be the more beautiful ending? Would a tragic one be more shocking/groundbreaking? Or would a happy ending totally satisfy, like a snickers bar? :D

EXCELLENT question. I'm so glad you're around right now. I would never have thought to ask myself that.

As for the "feel" of the two endings... just a sec. Let me visualize them then tell you what they remind me of.

Happy ending: Coming in from a really biting cold day and putting your feet up to a fire, wrapping yourself in an already toasty blanket. Looking outside and seeing the moonlit snow and contemplating how pretty it is, but thankful you're enjoying it from a warm place.

Bittersweet ending: The feeling you get when you've returned from visiting really special, wonderful place that just feels "right," but you know you will never be able to go there again.

(By the way, welcome to my Pisces brain! :D)

Oh, you water signs... always so deep. ^^

Dang, I can empathize with your dilemma here, this is a tough call. The way you've described the happy ending, though, is very descriptive, so I may have to go with the happy ending.

Okay, I'm voting on it!

I know. We have to feel everything. We're so weird. :D (Rudo is a Cancer, btw! And Odin is a Pisces (what the heck?). I really need to update my astrology thread.)

Totally. And you really should update that thread! I wonder if Rune is a gemini, he strikes me as one. And Lutz... maybe a cancer? No - sagittarius!
