When wrapping up your novel/short story/flash fictionpiece, how do your characters react to effectively being sent off stage? What are the changes to their lives the story has put them through? How do characters, sent away on a quest, react when they have to come back home and try to resume normalitity?
How do villages etc react to characters coming back to them (especially given all characters change)? Can life ever be as it had been for your characters?
