A thematic successor to Part 1, Calm Waters Run Deep. Picks up where Part 2 ended, “Do you really remember me?” Runs through the ‘true’ ending and goes a short time past. First-person POV, Zelda. Do not HAVE to read the rest of the series but you’ll lose some flavor and miss references. * Fair warning: this has become surprisingly autobiographical. I am pulling from my personal experience of trying to build a relationship with someone who has PTSD, a traumatic brain injury, and memory loss. (spoiler: we’ve been together 11 years and are happy as pigs in shit) My experience is not universal, and this is not meant to be a definitive look at PTSD, trauma, or the recovery process. If this sounds like it might be triggering to you, please keep scrolling.
