As an aficionado of ‘How I Met Your Mother’, the subject of endings is kind of a sore spot for me.  That show had no less than five places that it COULD have ended, only to go only about a season and a half further than it should have to get to the ending that the creators had already envisioned.  Comic books are notorious for NO ending at all, something that annoys me to no end, but I have to admit I was delighted to hear that Steven Universe would be continuing.  Maybe the movie makes for a fine ending, but it feels like there are still tales to tell in the world of the Crystal Gems, leading us to today’s appendicized query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) admits there might be some selfishness in my desire for more of Garnet and her amazing friends, asking: Which of your favorite shows, books or comics have gone on past the perfect ending (and what WAS that ending?)

Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
