    Summary

    When my high school English class studied Ian McEwan's (lovely) novel, Atonement, my teacher told us not to read ahead (for reasons that will be clear to you if you've read it or seen the film). The result of this was a small storm of crack rumours about what the mysterious plot twist was, of which a prominent one was that Briony, the creator of the story, was in fact a mermaid living in the Tallis family fountain. I was so amused by this that I promised, in the moment, to write such an alternate ending once we were finished the book. Some weeks later, in order to procrastinate on studying for my math midterm, I did do so: this is the result.

    It is written as a fifth part to the novel (which has four actual sections), and continues immediately from the final line of the novel. It is silly, cracky, and all around pretty unintelligible, but I still think it's quite nice and decided to put it up for fun. It emerged from a brain very recently steeped in exam revision, and is thus extremely specific to the text. If you have studied it, take a look to see it all inexpertly and ridiculously dismantled by me!

    Summary

    He finds her alone in the library. In truth, when Amy came here, she was trying to escape him, but somewhere in the back of her mind, she knew this was the first place he would look if he wanted to find her. And from the moment he had entered the dining room- entered back into her life- she knew he wanted to find her again.
