"In a movie, a character can make a decision and then walk away from the camera across the street and make the credits roll, freezing life in a perfect happily ever after. But in the real world, after you cross the street... you have to go home. The world goes on."
Jack Angstreich, Cinemania (2002)

These tropes, for which evidence in Real Life is disputed, require an author of a story to make a conscious storytelling decision, or otherwise involve the context within or outside of a work. Compare Impossible in Real Life, which involves In-Universe scenarios that can't happen in the real world.
