To earn Ending A you must reach and beat stage 7, Yggdrasil. Time, score, and retries do not factor into which ending you receive. However you do have a limited supply of Warrior Spirits, so you will have to keep your deaths to a minimum.

To reach Yggdrasil you must collect all 5 Key Stones, one in each alternate stage. To unlock the alternate path for each level, you must have at least 1 Warrior Spirit when ending the previous level. Once in the treasure chamber, jump to the upper level and walk past the Valkyrie statue and the wall should open up. Enter it to begin the alternate stage.

While on the "Path of the Valkyrie" you will only get as many retries as you have Warrior Spirits. If you die and have no more spirits remaining, you will return to the normal path and be unable to collect the Key Stone for this level. If that happens, you might as well restart as there is no way to reach Yggdrasil without all of them.

Generally that Valkyrie path is a bit trickier than the normal stages, so be careful and take your time. Look ahead will help immensely as a good number of enemies can be taken out before they are even an issue. It will also give you an idea of the entire obstacle, giving you an opportunity to plan. I would recommend going into your settings and setting Look Ahead to toggle, since I pretty much played the entire game with it on.

Once you've finished climbing Fafnir's tower through the alternate path, you will jump through the window to reach Fafnir. The game will slow down and if you press down on the d-pad you will instantly kill him, avoiding the boss fight as well as unlocking,

After killing Fafnir you will return to the treasure chamber. If you have all 5 Key Stones, the circular pattern on the upper level will turn into a portal. Jump through and you will have reached Yggdrasil. Like the Valkyrie path, Yggdrasil also takes Warrior Spirits for each retry, so if you run out it is game over from here. If this is your first time reaching Yggdrasil, at the start of the stage you will unlock,

The below video is a no-death walkthrough of the entire Path of the Valkyrie. It should help with the layout of the alternate stages, as well give you an idea on how to handle certain areas. While you don't need to beat the game without dieing, if you manage to kill Fafnir with 10 or less deaths you will also unlock,
