Where are the happy endings?

Dear Brain,

What do you have against happy endings? All of the good fic ideas you come up with have sad unhappy endings! In my terminator epic you ended the fic with a giant 3 way war where the world is basically destroyed. At least you had your OTPs together and came up with a sequel where you could prevent the giant 3 way war from happening. But in order to do that you had to break up your OTP. Then you created *another* sequel with time looping where sometimes your OTP was together and other times they weren't until half of your OTP died. Not happy.

And now. Now that I'm in Merlin fandom, which is all happy and ridiculous slash, you come up with a kind of cool OT4 idea which is fun and sexy-hot in the beginning but ends with them all scattered to the winds and dying bitter and lonely. WHAT DO YOU HAVE AGAINST HAPPY ENDINGS BRAIN!? I WANT TO KNOW SO I CAN FIX IT!!

No love,
Me.

I've written similar letters to my own brain. It seems impossible for me to give characters a happily ever after!

I don't know why, but it is totally impossible! Why! Why?

Agreed. I like to write unhappy endings, but hate reading them. WTF?

You'd think you'd be more likely to write what you enjoy to read but the ideas my head comes up with are so not the same. I did start to write the fic although I decided to hold on the angst and instead am writing their first time. I don't even like reading PWPs so of course I'm writing a PWP foursome. *headdesk* It's... kind of hard because there's so much going on at once.
