       I was reading some works on the site today, and I was wondering why does everything have to go down hill at the end? Isn't there any one who writes a little bit more up beat these days?

    dotsWhat Happened to the Happy Heroes and Heroines?dots

    Every now and then, I just want to read something where the person doesn't die in the end. I want to hear that someone stopped that horrible thing, whatever it be in the piece, from happening. I want to read something that says that there is a bright side, that the optimistic things in life haven't all be ostracized. I want, just once, to know that there is a happy side, and that when I read a piece of someone else's work, there's a chance that the main person isn't a cutter, that there's angst, but some other emotion, other than violence, wins. I want to believe that there are such works that do exist, because if there are...I just haven't been reading the right thing. Because happiness exists in the real world, why can't it exist in the written?

      I disagree with the previous. Life is beautiful. There are amazing warm pink superfuzzies right there with the darkest moments, but together it is your life. I also think that there are amazing books out there that have happy endings...I would know because I only read those more than once. So find a happy book or a happy poem and enjoy, before the happiness gets lost in the sadness or angerness or whatever. *mwah*

      Real life doesn't have the pink fuzzies you are talking about, only beautiful glimpses found in smiles exchanged or a child's laughter, someone clapping loudly after a poem even though it was crap (in your opinion) hugs and kisses timed perfectly, and even tears.
    Most great literature doesn't have a happy ending, Les Meserable, The Brothers Karamazov, The Great Gatsby, The Scarlet Letter, The Grapes of Wrath, Go Tell it on the Mountain etc. The human nature is pretty depraved.
    But, for happy tales I would suggest...I don't know what to suggest, the best books aren't about warm fuzzies.
    However, I do get tired of listening to people complain, if that's what you mean by angst and cutting and stuff. More often than not however people are dealing with crap. I suggest you write yourself a poem of story or rejoicing.
