    An Unauthorised Fan Treatise on the nature of the relationship between actors Rob Hennings and Nathan O'Donnell on TV show Loch & Ness, by @gottiewrites

    Gottie is a fangirl for Loch & Ness, a TV show about paranormal detectives. She's convinced that two of the male actors are secretly dating, and she'll stop at nothing to prove it. When her online investigations accidentally uncover far more than she expects, she becomes complicit in secrets beyond just a romantic conspiracy theory.

    An internet thriller told in a 'true crime' style recollection of events, the novel includes social media extracts such as modern Tumblr posts and early-noughties LiveJournal blog entries.

    Summary

    This story takes place in an alternative universe where Lowrie and Shen find themselves pretending to date, in order to investigate the secrets going on around them. It doesn't fit into the existing timeline of the book, and so it can be read without having read the book. It is a complete story.

    The Quiet at the End of the World is a published Young Adult novel, available now from all good bookshops. You can find out more at laurenejames.co.uk.

Unfortunately, she can't write, which turns out to be a problem when you're working for a journalist.......***

    Summary

    This deleted scene is from the timeline set in 2039. In this version, Matt is suspicious of Kate, and thinks she's spying on him. That plotline was cut out of a very early draft, which meant that this scene didn't fit with the story any more. I still really love it though, so I'm sharing it now!
