Character’s Experiences vs. Our Lives[When the characters return] they have to pick up the pieces of what’s left of their lives, since everyone they know, and everything they were involved with, has moved on without them. At the same time, a voice in each one’s head, which sounds like their own, but is based on knowledge they have no way of knowing, compels them to act to help people. It won’t shut up until they put their own day-to-day concerns aside and do the right thing.
What adult hasn’t faced these kinds of issues? The feeling that life is moving too fast around you, and you can’t keep up. Or the discovery that people or organizations that you used to know have become unrecognizable since the last time you checked in. Or even just the sting of betrayal from people you thought you were close to in the here and now, but realize you never really knew?
