Poll about dystopias over on LJ: what do you, the Reader-or-Viewer, find the most satisfying sort of ending? Possibilities, for the non-polly, are:

  • Protagonist is crushed by Society
  • Protagonist remakes Society
  • Protagonist allies with oppressing faction
  • Protagonist allies with oppressed faction
  • Protagonist evades Society from within it
  • Rocks fall, everyone dies
  • Protagonist's fate is ambiguous
  • I have no idea what I just watched/read or what it meant to Protagonist

*nods* Deciding on how much hope you want left at the end can be hard.

Maybe, if you have the time to do so, at least sketch out how things would go depending on who dies? I don't know if it'll help you, but sometimes writing out the different ways things can go helps me. (Of course, sometimes that also means I end up with yet another interconnected universe, but hey, it's what I'm good at.)
