Most shocking season finales/Best cliffhangers | Friends 4.24 - The One with Ross’s Wedding
When? May 7, 1998 | Why? Chandler and Monica sleep together and Ross says Rachel instead of Emily at the altar.

‘Now Ross, repeat after me. I Ross…’
'I Ross…’
'Take thee, Emily….’
'Take thee, Rachel…’

Thanks to the folks at Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got a first look at what is actually coming up this season… and unfortunately, no answers are really handed down on the Maury Povich – “are you the father?” mystery. Instead, we’ve got Reddington shooting people through glass and talking about a severed head. Awesome. That’s the best thing about the cliffhanger in our eyes: It’s handing James Spader a full license to be as amazing as possible… For those of you who have started to forget season 3 (understandable, given that it felt like two or three different seasons wedged into one)… The biggest cause of optimism is the claim that there will be answers coming on Liz’s past, which would be nice to have since we get the sense there’s this false belief that there needs to be a mystery still out there for us to be intrigued by the story.
Teaser for new book!

“So,Ezra. Why does your left eye glow red when you get mad? Is it something apart of your past?” Ezra nearly choked on his food when Sabine asked that. “Umm, yes? That is a part of my past. A part that I do not want to talk about, that is for sure.” “Aww,come on kid. Tell us a little bit. I’ve been curious myself ever since I found out about it.”Kanan said trying to coax an answer out. “You mean when I told you about it.” Sabine said putting a spoonful of ice-cream into her mouth. “But it still counts.” “No it does not!” “Does.” “Not!” “Does.”Not! “ Does.” Not!” “Does!” “Not!” Does!” NOT!” “DOES!” “Will you two pipe down?! I’m trying to enjoy my dessert!” Hera stated ending the argument almost immediately. “Thank you. Now, Ezra. We promise we won’t judge you or treat you any differently than we do now. So can you please tell us a little bit about how your eye got like that in the first place?” Ezra sighed in defeat. He knew there was no other way out of this conversation so he decided to tell them about his eye. “Okay,I’ll tell you but, promise you won’t hate me for telling you this?” The crew took on loving faces as they heard what the youngest said. “We promise. Now tell us. What happened to your eye?” Ezra thought about it for a moment then an idea popped into his head. “Ok,so first off, for you to better understand what I’m about to say, I need to show you something.” Ezra then took off his jacket and shirt to reveal…

Chapter 33 

Most shocking season finales/Best cliffhangers | Grey’s Anatomy 2.27 - Losing My Religion
When? May 15, 2006 | Why? Denny dies.

‘I think it was a stroke. He was prone to blood clots. A clot could have formed on his sutures and traveled to his brain. It only takes a second. Dr. Hahn did a beautiful job on the surgery. But I don’t know why I didn’t think of blood clots. He died all alone. He was alone. I changed my dress three times. I wanted to look nice. I would have been here sooner… but I couldn’t figure out which dress to wear. An hour ago he was proposing. And now… And now he’s going to the morgue. Isn’t that ridiculous? Isn’t that the most ridiculous piece of crap you’ve ever heard?’

Best Cliffhangers

How do you keep a story interesting? How do you keep it fresh, suspenseful, and satisfying? A writer will often use cliffhangers to keep the reader on the edge of their metaphorical and literal seat. But how can they keep the cliffhanger from becoming overused, boring, and least of all…expected? There is certainly a fine line. Few can master the cliffhanger so deftly but isn’t that what exactly makes a good cliffhanger; it’s rarity and simple nail-biting effectiveness? 

These are the nominees…

Your specialty as a fanfic writer is how well you get your characters in character and all the imagination you have when it comes to your situations and plot. You have such a wonderful ability for drawing your readers in, they want to know what happens next so bad. And of course you give some of the best cliffhangers. :)

Aksosndkansns thank you, Nonny!! 0///0 *hugs* Trying to keep the characters in-character is the thing I strive to accomplish most. Ahhhhh thank you ;____;
