The beginning of a story is important. It sets the tone and mood, and sells the tale. The ending is also important because, for me, it is how I tend to remember the story. I read a quote of the end of 'A tale of two cities' by Charles Dickens; I was intrigued and got it.

So here's the beginning and end of that tale. To make it more interesting, in between is a Loki/Thor gif :)

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way--in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

"It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done;it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known."
