Alright, assuming a film adaptation of Survivor ever gets done, what do you think should be done with the ending. Would it be better to let him die or show him meeting up with Fertility again?
The image I keep getting in my head to preserve the book's dual ending is that once the fourth engine burns out there should be a barely audible click as it cuts to Tender and Fertility, visibly pregnant, dancing on a streetcorner in Sydney or Melbourne or any other Australian city. Tender gives his final speech over them dancing. When he gets to the "Today is a beautiful day. Testing, Testing, One Two -" the two of them kiss and as their lips meet two cars crash in the intersection behind them. Then fade to black.
That's about the only way I can think of preserving the ending of the book.
What about you people, how do you think the Survivor movie should end?
