    Hi guys!

    Are there any other ways of ending a fairy tale in English?

    - ... and lived happily ever after.
    -.... and lived happily forever and ever.


    Thanks!

    "They lived happily ever after" is the traditional ending.

    If you tell us more about the story this will be the ending to, we may be able to make other suggestions.

    (That's what we mean when we ask for context, as we always do. ;))

    Yes, dozens. You might like to try this web site where you will find all manner of endings.

    For example, from that collection
    "When they have done praying, the story shall be continued further, but at present they are still praying unceasingly."
    and
    "Then she was placed with her accomplice in a ship which had been pierced with holes, and sent out to sea, where they soon sank amid the waves."

    Not all fairy stories have happy endings.
