I have been having much doubt about a WIP. The epilogue of it, is kind of cheesy. I am wondering if in context this is bad. Without giving much away a character is told by a god like character that in order to make up for their past they need to fight in a battle. They are told that if they fight, they will die. So it is a large moment there character deciding if they care enough to give up there life for the sack of others. The thing I they do fight and their don't die. This is a fake out right? The thing is though, it isn't just "insert sappy happy ending," there is a point to it. The point is that the god like characters were not mistaken, they knew full well they would survive, they lied. Why? Because they thought the act of fighting was a worthless gesture unless the character thought they were giving up everything for it. So is that kind of fake out a bad ending?
