In my story everyone wants to make their future. To avoid prison the MC needs at the end to sign a paper to have a future (outside prison) but he won’t be able to make his (dreamed up) future.
How would you determine whether the story ends in success or failure when all options for the MC has been exhausted and only the option he never considered is left for him - and he decides to go for it?
Success: MC has still a Future (being not in prison)
Failure: MC has not made his Future
In my Story the Judgment is: Bad
