I just wanted to get some thoughts on what people found overly cliché in fiction, events that would make you generally hate the entire work.
My own pet peeves are: endings that invovle all of the events being a dream, or the main character's memory being erased and returned to his/her normal life. Basically, anything that makes the entire story that leads up to the ending pointless.
Something I'd like to see (But probably never will, if it exists...someone please point me to a book that does this): Antagonist dies unexpectly in the story due to natural causes-heart attack, hit by a bus, brain aneurysm...etc. I'd like to see this especially near the end, gearing up for that last battle or final confrontation-only to find out they are already dead. Might be a terrible idea, actually...
