and they didn’t let go
That last post about LSPD being immortal got me thinking about another possibility. What if all of LS is immortal? Less in a purgatory way, more "something happened to this city". In a Lost Horizon/Wild Thornberrys type situation where if u ever leave or reveal it to anyone who's not already in the know, you'd lose it. As a result no one can get outside people to believe them but everyone in the city just lives like this. Like how in game you keep seeing the same citizens despite killing them.
