Alternative Ending, Guys?

4 11 2010

Check this one out!


How Lord of The Rings should have ended…. Seriously, that’s a great idea. I mean, the birds do exist even in the original stories, right? Why don’t they just wait for these blasted birds to come for around 30 minutes, and then fly to Mordor for 15 minutes. That will take 45 minutes to finish the movie, with additional few minutes before the meeting. Approximately, this story will be less than 1 hour—no need to divide it into 3 parts! 🙂

Of course, that’s a lazy alternative. Very quick, very short, and ironically very logical. What a shame….

Anyway, NaNo is now in progress. Have you thought of this kind of alternatives in your story? Is there a way to make your story no more than 3 paragraphs long? If the answer is yes, be careful. Just why does your character want to take all of the difficult adventures, with their lives in grief danger, if they can just fetch a ride and free from trouble? Very short alternative. No need for 50,000 words; it seems to me you’ve finished the whole novel.

“Well, that was incredibly easy.” Why, it’s true! 🙂

I love the “How it Should Have Ended” series. Check out “How Terminator Should End.” My favorite by far.

The vid points out the inherent flaws in a lot of stories though. I mean, yes, the point of the story is to make your characters suffer as much as possible and string the reader along as much as possible, but you have to give us a logical reason why it should be that way, instead of having an easy way out that you never take and that people will one day mock you for with flash videos.

Lol, I can’t believe I miss the Terminator one. Nice one! XD

Wow, thank you! I’m glad you enjoy it! Yes, well, what’s the best of it is the fact that it is very logical. I’m sure Frodo and the others won’t want to take a “hard way”, if they can just do this in the first place. But then again, LOTR won’t be an interesting movie. 🙂
