To the Lighthouse
Fandoms: Life is Strange (Video Game)
17 Oct 2021
Chloe doesn’t remember the first time she saw Rachel. She remembers that night at The Mill, of course she does, but that wasn’t the first time she saw her. Not even close. The truth is, when it comes to the story that consumed every part of her life for three years, she doesn’t even remember the start.
But memories don’t tell stories; they are shredded images, sensations—jumbled up, turned upside-down, the pieces glued back together but never the same. A laugh in the dark, love-drunk, dripping honey. The scent of jasmine on shower-damp skin. Not stories. Never whole stories.
For three years Rachel ripped through Chloe's life like wildfire—warming, burning, all-consuming. But now that flame is gone. Rachel is missing, and all Chloe has left are memories. But which of those memories can she trust, and where does the truth really lie? In the present, or in the past?
(A parallel narrative story that shifts between the events of Life Is Strange, as told from Chloe's perspective, and Chloe's memories of the three years between Before the Storm and LIS.)
