Exactly because it's fiction, only the author could be the one who decides when, where and how to finish the story. Let's take for example Hamlet. There are hundreds of different interpretations of this story by various artists. But none so far could avoid, skip or ignore a focal point of the story - death by poison. Hamlet without poison is no longer Hamlet. The same goes with witcher Geralt. His death is necessary part of the story. Just think about it. Superhuman swordsman killed by clumsy and ignorant peasant with pitchfork. Raised, trained and forcefully mutated to be a perfect protector of human race against non-humane horrors killed by humans while trying to save non-humans. Tragic irony or ironical tragedy? Both?
I struggle again to find right answer. One thing I know for sure is that without this there is no Geralt.
