So, I finished Driven around 1834, and was surprised by three things. One, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Two, there were a couple of semi-graphic sex scenes. Three, that the final chapter existed at all. I really do mean that last one. I was reading, and the story reached a nice ambiguous conclusion that I was impressed about. There was even a blank page to support this notion. Unfortunately a turn of the page proved me incorrect, and I had to read through some 'happily ever after' wrap-up.

Grah. I like it when the story doesn't have a clear ending! That's what makes The Giver one of my all-time favourites. There's just something about being given a large set of data and having the opportunity to draw your own conclusion that I cannot help but enjoy. Hrm... I think I might understand one aspect of why people write fanfic, now.

    Closure is one reason, yes.
  • See: HP7, The Epilogue and the fact that there is now an entire genre of fic called EWE (Epilogue, What Epilogue?) dedicated to ignoring its existence.

    Or, in other words, yes. That's definitely one part of the picture.
