"There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, and the sea's asleep, and the rivers dream; people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice, somewhere else the tea's getting cold. Come on, Ace. We've got work to do!"
The Seventh Doctor, Doctor Who (the final lines of the classic series)

The End?

There are no happy endings, because nothing ever ends
Schmendrick, The Last Unicorn


Dessier: Take a look around. Look at the person standing next to you. I see no one with a look of disappointment on their face. The faces I see are filled with smiles, with strong-willed eyes, with spirits overflowing with hope. Why? Because for the past five years, everyone has given everything in order to advance our kingdom. Because of your sacrifices, we - the people of Arls - can proudly become one with Arland. And today, I want to thank you all for recognizing, and reaching, your full potential. This does not mean the end of our storied history of Arls. No, today marks yet another chapter in that history. We dream of a better tomorrow, and in that dream's name we take our first step today. We hold our fate in our hands. I'm sure you all recognize - this is not the end, but the beginning!
Meruru: From today, I am no longer a princess. But that's okay. I and everyone else in the kingdom are headed toward a new future. No matter what problems arise, as long as everyone stands together, we will always overcome.

A happy ending is nothing more than a new beginning.

"... This isn't the end at all."
The Machine, Person of Interest

There is something special about a story about a Pharaoh, but everyone has his or her own story. And this is a story that ends in the light. And... my story is just beginning.
Yugi Muto, Yu-Gi-Oh!

"Closing time, every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end..."
Semisonic, "Closing Time"

Iolaus: Hmm.
Hercules: You know, maybe someday, I'll be ready to slow down, but you know, for now, I'd rather just keep on walking. Care to join me?
Iolaus: Frankly, Hercules, I wouldn't have it any other way.
