imagine in Life is Strange that max fails to stop kate from jumping. imagine max getting even a lot more protective of chloe after that because she’s already failed to save one of her friends and she refuses to ever let that happen again. and ofcourse when the opportunity to save chloe’s dad happens, max does it because she wants chloe to be happy but then come present time and she learns that she fucks that up too and now it’s all her fault that chloe’s now basically stuck in mobile life support. And max somehow manages to excuse herself and run back to her dorm room before she breaks down at the thought of how much she fucked up. imagine that right before she does break down, someone knocks at the door and max opens it to see kate smiling at her and asking if she could have her book back because she needs it for the project and hey max are you alright? max? what’s wrong? and max just stares at her because kate is alive.Imagine max coming to the realization that this universe’s kate marsh is alive and happy and the video never happened so kate never jumped and she’s alive. Imagine that this is the point that max really breaks down crying because now she has to choose between a universe where chloe is alright or a universe where kate is alive. Imagine.
