Take a fairly well known story, book, movie or fairytale, and tell us what happened after "The End".

I'll start with Cinderella;

When Cinderella and her handsome prince returned to the castle after the honeymoon she was already fed up with him. What a bore he turned out to be! And his wretched father did nothing but nag her about an heir to the throne. Cinderella felt that she was trapped and persuaded the whole court to move to California, where they have the best divorce laws in the world. Then she ran off with half the kingdom and the court jester who, though ugly, had a wonderful sense of humor and made her laugh. Together they spent the rest of their lives and all the money trying to invent a selfcleaning open-fire-place.

The Magus, by John Fowles. After the end there is a complete explanation of everything that happened in the book: why things happened, why people behaved the way they did, what it was all about, what was the purpose of the perpetrators, etc, etc, etc.

If you've read the book, what I've just written will make perfect sense.

If you've not read the book - don't.

Airport. The flight attendant decides the married guy is a loser and goes back to the Tom Hanks character.
