In my WIP, I nearly have it outlined to the very end. However, I can't decide which route to take for it to reach the end. Two boys are "feuding", I guess you could call it, because of drugs, trust, and more importantly revenge, but I don't know if I should make that their main motives. Their common enemy has already been dealt with shortly before the intended ending, but I don't want it to be as simple as ONE planning to get revenge for all the misdeeds that have happened because of TWO. I don't know how to bring the conclusion of them both unless it's through a 'guns blazing' standoff. I'd rather it not just be as simple as ONE going out to kill TWO because of he wronged him. It's boring, and no one should ever intend on it being a decent way to end a story. The question is: Is there any other way to possibly end this story without a scene of mundane bloodshed? I don't want all this work to wind up ending with a simple death match between them. Either can die, but I don't want it to be as simple as that, seeing how they're both main characters. HOWEVER, one must meet his match from the other. Above all, I want it to be creative, and I want it to mean something, whether it be a personal revelation by the remaining main character, or stand as a message to the reader. Thanks guys!
