Happy Endings?

I bought Seven Pounds and watched it again this week. I love that movie. I ball my eyes out, but I love it. Several people I know do not like books or movies that do not have a happy ending. I don't like unrealistic happy endings...the kind that you know should have ended down a completely different pathway.

I have noticed a pattern. My favorite characters are always the down and out, dark and miserable heroes who surprise everyone with what they are capable of doing. I'm not sure if it is the darkness that attracts me or the fact that they rise above it. I love a realistic ending. Sad or not.

What is your favorite character? Do you have to ave a happy ending?

I've got two book ideas fighting in my head. One is hard and I started it with no idea how to finish...I just go along grinding out a chapter at a time. The other came fully fleshed out (tho it'll probably get changed) and seems like fun, BUT requires research. Sigh. So I do a little on one, then a little on the other and it feels like my brain is getting bruised!
