    Summary

    A new day dawns. Alex knows the loop is broken. But, really... that could never have been the end.
    ~~~~~~
    If Alex had known leaving the island would be the easiest part of the whole thing... Well, she'd probably have preferred to pretend to lose the radio - or actually lose the radio - and loop the first few hours, over and over.... Because truthfully, Alex can't deal with the fact that it's over but not done.
    ~~~
    Or, Alex ending the Edwards Island loop - two other Alex-es, two other timelines, one wholly separate from all of this and another doomed to looping, forever and always, trapped as a constant so every other Alex, every other version of their friends can be free - doesn't stop the Sunken from haunting them. Also, going through the loops so many times, messing with Time as much as she has done... It makes perfect, horrible sense that Alex? She's got *something* odd from all of that.

    Summary

    "You said that last time. And the time before that. And you will next time," she sighs inwardly at the words, "but I think we both know it's not that easy- not for me."

    For a few moments, they're quiet- not silent, the radio still has a distant sound that, if she listens closely enough, could be interference, it's the closest thing to silence that she has for now.

    "We know. We. We're sorry. Al. Ex."

    In the mix and match of voices, she can hear what sounds like a young woman- Anna, she learned- and smiles. It's a sad, crooked thing, like a puppet with just one uneven string, but it shows just what she needs it to.

    "I know."

    Summary

    Alex and Jonas are invited to a pseudo high school reunion. Along with Nona and Ren. Shenanigans ensue, of course. Then, some ghost hunting shit is introduced.
    __________________________________________________
    Uh so. Hi
    Alex probably has anxiety from the events in the game or something, but I wouldn’t know because I’m not a therapist. Clarissa is absent. Because not only did I, personally, sacrifice her, but I hate writing her. So she is dead. Or whatever??? Sorry if you liked her, but you may need to find another fic if you want to see her. She’ll be mentioned, I guess.

    Summary

    Sometimes he remembers they're in a time loop, and sometimes he can recognize the constants and variables in each loop. Mostly he just hates that Ren is so consistently the center of everything for him.

    Summary

    The things that everybody's gone through both have and haven't happened, and yet it still comes back to haunt everyone. Regardless of how well that island was handled, they still haven't escaped and they still haven't learned. Or, to put it short and sweet: a perfectly good vacation is ruined.

    Summary

    "You're... Jonas?" she says, just like always, eyes empty and hands nervous.
    You don't bother replying. Instead, you light up and breathe in the hot, toxic air, and pretend that it's the cigarettes that will kill you and not the island. (Pretend you can be killed at all.)

     

    Empty churches have more room for visitors than full ones.

    “What concert?” He hears Alex ask in reply.

    “Honestly? I don’t even know what I’m talking about. Must be some.. Ghost nonsense again. Maybe one of them went to a concert recently?”

    Summary

    Alex lost count of how many loops of Edwards Island she completed, and repeated, failing over and over again. Time stopped feeling like a real concept to her, after a while. She guessed she now knew what it felt like for the people who lived before clocks, or sundials, were invented. Seconds, minutes, hours, it all seemed to merge together. It warped and bent, flowing in waves on its own accord. Sometimes, she finished the island loop in the blink of an eye, and other times it seemed to drag on for all of eternity.

    Summary

    Leaving Edwards Island felt like a bubble. It was a tight cocoon, where panic wasn’t real, wasn’t allowed to be real, just yet. There’s no such thing as post-traumatic stress when the trauma is fresh, and real, and happening, flickering in the corner of Alex’s vision not as a memory but as a continuing event.

    Leaving Edwards Island after being pulled out of the rift seemed to have a healing effect on Jonas. By some strange miracle, he knew Alex was trapped, and he stayed in the cocoon with her.

    “You’re not gonna leave this time,” he promised her, and for a brief moment they both pretended it was something he had the ability to promise.

    Summary

    Alex is forced out of the time loop, but not so far from the Sunken after all.
