"All Bette's stories have happy endings. That's because she knows where to stop. She's realized the real problem with stories - if you keep them going long enough, they always end in death."
(From Neil Gaiman's Sandman sequence. A quotation which may just encapsulate the major theme of the sequence itself - not sure, because there's rather a lot in the way of profound themes - but I think it does. I was reminded of it by seeing the info about the new Harry Potter book. Farewell then, young Harry. It was good to know you.)
