** Everybody under the spell gets their happy ending. Haley is shown rolling in gold and helping her father take over the Thieves' Guild, which Roy wouldn't know anything about. Elan makes peace with his family, something the other two don't see as a happy ending. Roy gets to rub his swords-are-better-than-magic philosophy in his sister's face, something the other two wouldn't know would be a part of his happy ending. Clearly, there is no one point of view; everybody under the spell gets their happy ending. Belkar is dead, and is presumably killing monsters in the abyss. That's his happy ending.
*** And his cat's dead too. Which means either one of his teammates found the cat too evil to keep around, or Belkar wants the only thing in the world he cares about to stay by his side.

FluffyCloudHeaven cooking yummies for Lord Shojo, who's giving tummy rubs to keep around, or Belkar wants the only thing in the world he cares about to stay by his side. Mr. Scruffy.



*** And Belkar's "[[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0890.html happy ending]]" possibly cuts the deepest; He was Lord Shojo's cook. Not only is it a peaceful life for a man who seems utterly devoted to meaningless violence, it's not even possible even as an afterlife - Shojo is Chaotic Good, Belkar is Chaotic Evil. And Roy unknowingly rubs it in, declaring he doesn't want to hear about Belkar's fantasies about "stabbing and whores, and whores stabbing whores who stab whores." It could be taken that even ''Belkar'' didn't know what he really wanted until that precise moment.

* Page 1025 is one long LeaningOnTheFourthWall to Wrecan, referring to how the RealLife Wrecan passed away some time back and noting his love of chronicling how often each character appeared in the comic. Quite a fitting memorial, indeed.

*** In the wedding scene, notice the crowd. That green-skinned baldy in a purple suit? That's Thog! The only explanation is that Elan and Thog's OddFriendship held out long enough that one of Elan's wishes is that he stays alive. In reality, it seems at that point that [[DeathByLookingUp he's dead]].

In reality, it seems at that point that [[DeathByLookingUp he's dead]]. In fact, a good portion of the Linear Guild is there, including Zzt'dri, Sabine, Leeky, and one of the various Kobolds.
*** Even Varsuuvius gets a happy ending and seems to be reunited with his/her mate at the wedding.

*** Also consider [[spoiler:what Tarquin's last words to Nale are: "You would have been dead years ago, if not for my protection." All his life, Nale wanted to escape his father's shadow, and for those to be the last words he ever hears, a reinforcement (true or false) that he was '''never''' his own man, it's gotta hurt.]]
