Leaving for three weeks!

laughingpinecone:

Plane’s leaving in 13 hours! I’ll probably check tags and notifications and chill online now and then, liveblog a little and post some pics, but I obviously won’t be here much. You all have a lovely summer, okay? See you in August!

on second (or third) playthrough, one notices that Ray does a dance whenever Lynne goes past him. I think this is what he was like.
when our old dog was still alive and left alone in the flat, upon picking up our smells, he would walk towards the door at a crawling pace. By the time the door opened, he would be approaching the door slowly. Then, he would clumsily sit down, pant, and wag his tail with all the energy his aged body could muster. Like Missile saying “Welcome!”.

Alma 20 or Cabanela 80...?

This got very out of hand, I’m sorry.

It's been a while since I played the game, so I probably don't remember much about the timeline shenangigans. However, what I do remember is that you don't need to be one of the spirits that went back in time to have faint memories of the alternative timeline. The cook who works at the chicken restaurant who thought Memry died and who lamented he couldn't sing her more seems to recall it in the new timeline. If you go back to the kitchen he says he feels like singing to her but isn't sure why.

Sorry for the late answer! Yeah, I personally didn’t know about that line for a long time but it sure is a thing and it sets a precedent for Lynne’s sense of deja vu! And for others, of course.

But that’s the difference between those who went back and those who didn’t, right? Faint feelings VS a clear memory of the events, as Sissel points out in ch2, surprised that Missile remembers it all.

I just hope Kamila doesn’t get these too much. Protect Kamila at all costs. u_u/

My headcanon is that everyone forgot, but that at this new timeline they'd have these kinds of 'deja-vu' feelings, and sort of ghost images of events. Like at the timeline point where Alma died, they'd have a feeling something horrible might have happened, then when the timeline met the point where they originally travelled to the past, they'd suddenly get all of their memory back. This is how it seems to work in the game. I have more thoughts on this but I'm running out of space.

Everyone meaning Sissel-Yomiel-Jowd-Missile? (Lynne’s half remembrance does leave the door open to faint deja vus for everyone else, too. I… don’t want Kamila to remember anything ever so I tend to steer clear, but ye. Definite canon-supported possibility!) It does indeed seem to be the way it works in-game,where the consciences that travel to the past say that they ‘go back to a new present’ and seemingly do just that. There are, however, some inconsistencies, and I’m sure there’s at least one line that points toward this timeskip simply being a directorial choice… but I can’t recall what it’s about, just my ‘a-ha!’ reaction, and can’t really afford to brave fifteen pages of meta tag right now to find it, sorry >_<

(I can, however, point out that the ending scene shows an arbitrary point in time and not the exact moment they left the game’s present: it was early morning in the submarine and dinner time as Lynne arrives!)

Anyway! The main reason I lean toward the other interpretation, i.e. a more standard ‘time travellers keep their memories of the time travel’, is consistency with two of the character’s arcs. Annnnd I really like the place it leaves Jowd in, but cross my heart it’s mostly for Sissel and Yomiel. For both of them, not knowing for ten years why their new future panned out this way seems so cruel to me… Yomiel has his legs crushed because of a ‘miracle’ and ends up in prison for a decade for relatively minor crimes. For game Yomiel, all of this can be seen as atonement. For a fresh Yomiel straight out of Temsik, it’s?? so completely unfair???

And Sissel! Sissel is DEAD. I don’t want to imagine what it must be for a baby kitten to struggle with the status of ghostly immortality and have to learn how to cope with his powers - it’s too cruel and uncalled for in a plot that’s so tight on causes and consequences. In this scenario, both Yomiel and Sissel find themselves in grim, horrific situations that they cannot explain, that aren’t foreshadowed nor shown by the narration, swerving from their character arcs, and the fact that their answers are coming ten years down the line feels to me more like a cruel joke than comfort for them. What do they do with these fractured tragedies once their memories come together? It’s highly interesting material for musing and ficcing, as most things are, but I don’t think it makes for coherent narrative, which is what the rest of the plot kind of prides itself on. On the contrary, giving them their memories at the beginning of this new future feels to me like the coronation of their respective progress through the game’s night.

There is also the fact that Jowd calls him Sissel and there’s no reason whatsoever for a Jowd with no memories to call the cat Sissel? And that going by Yomiel’s tale of his early days, learning how to control his body takes some time, so again, a Jowd going home that day with no added memories wouldn’t have had any reason to believe that the cat was anything but dead?

yeah i'd forgotten the specifics of that scene--all i remembered was her "so we meet again!" line, which i took to be her recognizing that sissel-the-cat was sissel-the-ghost, which is something she never knew in the original timeline. but yeah, there's no way to really explain why they didn't meet earlier that really meshes with the canon personalities. i mean, i can understand the desire to keep the action in the main storyline, but it can be awfully weird at times. :(

For Jowd, it’s not a stretch to think that it kinda does, I think - emotional detachment and all, I wouldn’t be surprised if he were simply keeping his distance. Mentor the kid, but… without taking her into his home… just yet… and he probably feels guilty about leaving Kamila to her for five years, too.

Sissel… I hope that he has been a friendly neighbourhood kitten with pretty much everyone and Lynne is obviously included. Maybe he came up to her at the park and and meowed sometimes, but she had no way of taking him for anything but a random stray? They have met already, but they only get reintroduced formally during the ending? Something like that?

But ye. These are blatant patch-it headcanons. It is weird.
