Define angst. (In terms of fic...what makes a fic angsty?)
Can an angsty story ever have a happy ending?
Yes, just like in real life.
No. Angsty means it's unhappy all the way.
Angst and hurt/comfort are not the same. But can a fic be both angst AND h/c?
Yes, angst=hurt, duh.
No, comfort negates the angst.
