Ever since I read it, I've been frustrated by the end of the last book in Robin Hobb's Fool trilogy. It just doesn't work in narrative, especially not narrative as empassioned and dramatic as the rest of the series.

I recently had several thoughts in quick succession:
a) I could fix it with fan fiction.
b) Then I'd have to write something in which a character I identify with makes trivial and foolish mistakes that mess up all of humanity and also this relationship (small or large r) that matters so much in this character's life.
c) Given that they can't settle into smooth friendship together anyway, because Must Have All the Dramaz, Woe, maybe a softly-missed train connection is the best ending.
d) I was much more into Drama and Trauma and Woe back then.

Maybe instead I'll write an AU that starts when this character is 9.
