ok ok ok not to be super over the top and emotional or anything but think about how much time nate and sam finally spent together just talking after libertalia. like, how many late nights did they just stay up shooting the shit and nate talking about all his adventures and how he doesn’t understand how he didn’t fucking die and sam just getting all bright-eyed and excited and super happy for his little brother. and don’t you dare think about nate making fun of sam’s lack of knowledge on how to use technology but “you’re one to talk, nate you use a flip phone” “yeah elena thank you.” just think about the drake brothers just happy to be together again and live happy lives oh my god i think i’m crying
So i thought about a third alternative ending for Life is strange
I would have taken that road in a fucking heartbeat. I was based on this pic:
It would take place AFTER you pick the sacrifice Chloe ending. Here’s how it goes:
As i focused on the blue butterfly, everything started to vanish around me. I still can’t get used to the feeling; my eyes always feel like they are going to pop out, and just as i feel like i am going to pass out, i am suddenly on the picture scene again. No matter how many times i have done it, i still have to blink a few times to realize what just happened.
I found myself in the bathroom, holding my instant camera, which had not been broken yet. The picture fell from the camera and a blue butterfly appeared on it. It is actually a beautiful picture. It would have won the Everyday Hero contest right away.
“When a door closes, a window opens, or something like that.” I remember the last single thought that slipped through my mind right before all of this nightmare started. I still feel like i’m gonna wake up at some point. I’m hoping on it.
Then the reason why i am here, in this bathroom, with the blue, beautiful butterfly, hits me like a train; i’m going to kill my best friend. My lover, my partner, my everything.
I used to believe love was a cliche. A cute, heart filling, warming cliche. But a cliche after all. I never expected it to be anything like this. This is pure, raw, fierce. This is like a beautiful knife pouring my guts off my chest, not some dumb butterflies. This is like a gorgeous pain i never want to stop feeling. It feels like the most incredible way of dying. It makes me feel, like i have never felt in my life.
And it was all going away. Because of me. Because of my stupid, amazing rewind power.
“It’s cool, Nathan… Don’t stress… You’re okay, bro. Just count to three…” Nathan entering the bathroom interrupted my thoughts. I counted the seconds until the door was supposed to open again. “Don’t be scared… You own this school… If I wanted, I could blow it up… You’re the Boss…”. That’s when i hear the door slide open. That’s when the love of my life entered the room, just so i could kill her.
I think that, if i had to consider the worst way to torture someone, everything considered, it would be to give them a rewind power. The worst thing you can take away from someone is time. And this power took it all from me. It would be logical to think otherwise; if anything, a rewind power gives you more time. But the thing is, when you rewind, nothing that occurred in the meantime happened. Only you have the memories. And that right there, is torture. Right now, the punk blue haired gorgeous girl i love is thinking that no one is alive to love her. She thinks that she is not wanted, that she is a burden.
And, god, could she be more wrong?
But she doesn’t know. Nothing happened to her. Not the pool, not the dare kiss, not the actual kiss, nothing. She doesnt even know im back in this fucking town.
“So what do you want?”
“I hope you checked the perimeter, as my step-ass would say. Now, let’s talk bidness.”
“I got nothing for you.”
“Wrong. You got hella cash.”
I cant hear this. I cant bear this. I cant. I thought. I wanted to scream, i wanted to die right there. I couldn’t handle the pain.
So that’s when it occurred to me.
To be fair, it would hurt Chloe less. She doesn’t know all that happened between us this week. To her, it would be just an old friend dying tragically. Its not exactly a pink-colored situation, i know. But it is another way. I can intervene without my powers. I can save Chloe and Arcadia bay. I just have to die instead.
“Oh boo hoo, poor little rich kid. I know you been pumpin’ drugs n’ shit to kids around here… I bet your respectable family would help me out if I went to them. Man, I can see the headlines now.”
“Leave them out of this, bitch.”
“I can tell everybody Nathan Prescott is a punk ass who begs like a little girl and talks to himself!”
“You don’t know who the fuck I am or who you’re messing around with!”
I remembered that this was when Nathan took the gun out, so i emerged from the back of the stalls to face them. This was my moment to shine.
“Nathan, wait!” I shouted.
“What the fuck?” He screamed, turning around, now pointing the gun to me.
“Oh my god” Chloe said, almost whispering. “Max”
“Chloe, shut up” I said. “Nathan, please put down the gun. I know what you are going though. I know everything.” I know he was going to shoot me anyways. But i had to try.
“What the fuck do you mean? You know nothing!” Nathan screamed histerically. “Nobody know anything!”
“I know about Mr. Jefferson” I said in a lower voice. “Just please, listen to me.”
“Max, what the fuck is going on?” Chloe said, now crying. If only i could hold her and catch the tears.
“Chloe, i love you, but please just shut the fuck up. Nathan, could you please put down the gun so we can talk?”
Nathan was mute now. I know i shocked him by telling him about Mr. Jefferson. I noticed how the trembling in his hands was starting to quicken and intensify. It wasn’t a good sign.
“No one can know about that. He will kill me. You cannot know!” Nathan cried out. He had a serious expression now. Like he had just assumed something. Like he had taken a decision.
“I do, Nathan, and i can help you. I know you are not like this. I promise-” Suddenly, my words were interrumpted by a major noise. It was deafening. Then i felt an incredible pain in my guts, and i found myself falling.
It was as if i was seeing everything in slow motion, like when i got to save kate. I saw everything. I saw Chloe crying her heart out running towards me. I saw Nathan screaming, shouting something, though i couldn’t understand what. I saw the floor turn red. I saw Nathan suddenly running away.
And i saw a beautiful face right in front of me.
“Chloe” i whispered, smiling.
“Max, don’t do this to me. Please.” I could tell behind Chloe’s tears that she was confused. After all, having your five-years-vanished best friend suddenly in a bathroom taking a bullet for you, must be mind blowing. Not in a good way.
“Listen Chloe. I know you must be tripping balls right now. But i have to tell you something before i run out of breath.” I started to feel really, really tired.
“Shut up, asshole! Your are not going to die! You hear me?”
“Chloe, i want to tell you a million different things, but i’m just going to say this; i’m in love with you. I love you so much it hurts more than this fucking bullet. Please never think you are not loved, because i could have never loved someone as much as i love you, okay?”
“M-max, I… what the hell? you must be losing to much blood…” Chloe stuttered. I could feel her tears falling in my face, but i didn’t care. I didn’t care about anything right now.
I heard screaming outside the bathroom. I was running out of time.
“Chloe, i know what you have been through. I know you are hurting so badly, and that you think that you are such a waste of space. I know i bailed on you for all this time, and i cannot tell you how sorry i am. I was the shittiest person on earth”.
“Well, i think that taking a bullet for me might be a good apologize” Chloe smirked between tears. God, was she beautiful.
“I know about Rachel, Chloe. And I’m so, so sorry. Please talk to David and warn him about Mr. Jefferson. He will know what to do.” I was starting to feel dizzy.
“How do you know…?”
“It doesn’t matter. What matters is i’m here, and i could save you. You don’t know how many times i had to save your beautiful ass, you dork. But it was worth it, it was worth it every goddamn time” i laughed. “I love you, Chloe Price. You are my partner in time, my pirate, my best friend, my everything. And if i could lend to you all these memories, i would in a heartbeat” Suddenly, i just wanted to close my eyes and sleep.
“I dont know what the fuck is going on right now. But i love you to death, Max. I always did.” Chloe caressed my cheek as she comforted me. And then, as if she was reading my mind, she leaned over and kissed me. As she pressed her lips to mine, i opened my mouth as if i was gasping for air, and kissed her lower lip. I could tell she was surprised, but she followed my lead, opening her mouth this time. I felt electricity running through my veins as our tongues touched. I wished i could stay in that very moment forever, despite the pain and nausea i was feeling. I didn’t give a fuck, i just wanted to kiss her, i just wanted her. Always.
“Max, please don’t leave me. Please.” She said, sepparating a few inches her face from mine. I could almost feel the knot in Chloes throat forming again. “I cant handle this. I just got you back. Please.”
“I will always love you, Chloe. Always. I will always be watching over you.” As cliche and cringy this sounded to me, i couldn’t mean more every single word.
“Max…” Chloe’s face deformed into a crying face.
“Be the though punk i know you are, Price. Man up.” I smirked, as i tried to lift up my hand to hold her face. She saw this and held it with the hand that wasn’t caressing me. “And, Chloe Price?”
“Don’t you forget about me” I said, ironically.
Suddenly i felt like i was floating. I was lifting myself from the ground, and everything started going black. And then, it hit me. I wasn’t granted the power to rewind time. I wasn’t cursed. I wasn’t being tortured. I was granted the power to save my whole life; my town and my lover. The ability to rewind time was just the tool.
And as i drifted into the nothingness, I gave my favorite blue haired punk one last smile.
Still can’t get over Heidi and her Cartman persona…
Nathan up to some sneaky shit.
Jimmy’s a cockblocker
I love the rivalry between Jimmy and Nathan even though Jimmy is oblivious this time lol
They played the old theme for the bus stop scene :’)
ROLE REVERSAL BETWEEN HEIDI AND CARTMAN, DON’T KNOW HOW TO FEEL
The water bears doing the hokey pokey
SHUT UP, KYLE! SAMESIES *smooch*
CREEK IN THE BACKGROUND
“Water bears are the key to our survival”
I JUST SAW HEIDI’S ASS WTF
Clyde sitting between Craig and Tweek lol
“She’s kind of like Cartman but with the ability to follow through…” - Mr.Mackey
NATHAN LET JIMMY AND TIMTIM SHINE
STOP SLAPPING POOR MIMSY D:
It’s interesting how South Park subtly adds social issues in each episode, especially about the NFL in this episode :o
The FedEx box
Call me a bitch again…DO IT
Wow, Cartman is slowly understanding that he’s an asshole
The lines between Heidi and Cartman are actually really funny lol
SHE DRANK THE WATER BEARS
WE NEED THE OLD HEIDI :(
Cartman finally getting a taste of his own medicine
The volcano, they took the volcano…
My god. Guys, this episode…WAS PRETTY FUNNY. So after the events from the last episode containing dramatic Heiman moments, I kind of expected the worst but damn, not like this. As soon as I saw Heidi, I cried from both laughter and sadness. She’s basically WORSE than Cartman now. Perhaps this will teach Cartman to…y’know… not manipulate someone into being something they’re not! Just a thought. But for the Special Ed Science Fair side of the plot, loved it! Loved seeing Nathan back at his antics of trying to one up Jimmy so he can get some chicks. Sex with chickens that is. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next episode. I can’t believe the season is almost over :(
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS? PLEASE TELL ME ANYTHING! I LOVE TO HEAR WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK!
[ I was getting my copy of Dollhouse Season 1 signed by Enver Gjokaj at Montreal Comiccon on Saturday, who was sitting right next to Nathan Fillion, when Nathan popped up, the prankster that he is, and he took my DVD cover for a second, flipped it on its back and signed tinily over Enver’s face!!!!! (which Enver replied to him with “You weren’t even on this show!” ]
