I'm almost done with a fantasy-type novel, and they climax is... well, let's just call it a battle scene. Afterward there's kind of a moment of celebration, which peaks with a kiss. I think it might be boring to continue after that to explain the goodbyes, and how the characters come to the rest of their lives. Would it be tacky to start the next chapter with "Two years later..." and then just explain the characters' futures? Or, I could just continue the story unbroken, but paraphrase the boring travel and unimportant relationships that form between non-major characters, that are necessary for the future to be what I want it to be. Or I could spontaneously end it there, and leave the rest of the characters' lives to the imagination. Opinions?
