    So here is the end of the entire story, as I mentioned in the Stranded thread without pictures or game input.

    Knowing that the last "time weirdness", as Connie liked to call them, was at the Pancakes' house the group now wanted to visit them. Upon arrival, they were greeted by a young teenage girl who looked a lot like Eliza Pancakes. Her parents were also there, she said.
    David thought: "Hm, this is actually a nice change for the Pancakes. They have a daughter and, apparently, a quite happy marriage."
    While David was talking to the daughter in the living room and explained everything to her (she actually believed him immediately for some reason), Zoe and Connie went upstairs to her parents. To the shock of Zoe (because Connie never knew the Pancakes anyways), they weren't actually the Pancakes. They called themselves Fatima and Vadim Willovitch, and their daughter... Eliza.
    When they all entered the living room Eliza was ready to explain everything to her parents.

      They didn't really want to believe them though, especially the mother. She even attacked David, at which point he pulled out his Simray (still named Susan) and froze her. Eliza was surprised and shocked, but more at her mom's behaviour than that of David.
      Vadim shouted "You are insane! Leave us alone now!" and then strongly pushed (or rather, threw) Zoe against the open door frame while walking outside to call the police. That made David REALLY angry, but because he was so well-mannered he refrained from boxing Vadim in the face. Instead, his logical mind made him remember the purpose of their visit. So he opened a small cube that was lying in his pocket previously, put it on the floor and pressed a button on a small remote he had stored in the other pocket.
      The cube opened, and out came a machine that looked like a momentum conservator, but it had the purpose of evening out the time flow. It did indeed work, and a bright glow filled the entire first floor of the house. They all had special glasses that prevented them from becoming blind though (except for Vadim who was outside trying to call the police, which didn't work because the Temporal Conservator's effects included the destruction of most electronic devices). Even Fatima got some of course.

      After the process was completed several minutes later, indicated by a blinking green light on the cube's top after the Temporal Conservator was packed inside again, they took their glasses off. But... everything was the same. Eliza still a teenager, no Bob Pancakes in sight, everything has stayed the way it was.
      Connie scanned the area for time weirdnesses, and it surprisingly didn't show any. Apparently, instead of removing and replacing the situation, the TC evened the timeline out in a way that allowed young Eliza to stay like this. "Strange, but I think we're done. Just in a different way from what we've expected."
      Eliza replied: "I feel somewhat... different. Almost like my personality has changed around a bit..."
      So Zoe looked at her phone, which was connected to the secret database. The eye implants projected the database directly on her eyes so that nobody else could see anything. She looked for "Eliza Willovitch" and found some different entries from before the visit (where she wanted to find out what to expect, mostly unsuccessfully). "Hm. You were quite a mean and arrogant person before, as far as I remember. But now it seems like you've changed for the better."

      So then Zoe, David and Connie went home again. They gave Eliza their phone numbers before so she could call them if anything is weird again. Checking (a.k.a. scanning) the other houses while driving didn't show any further fluctuations either.

      -- At Home --

      David: "Well, I guess this is our goodbye now. Unless you want to stay here for some more time of course. Nobody's saying you HAVE to go now."
      Connie: "I understand that. I'm actually beginning to really like it here. But there is still my actual family. And my child that I'm going to give birth to not that far in the future."
      Zoe: "Okay, then it's a goodbye. Not completely though, we can still communicate over the thread we met at."
      Connie: "Oh, right! I wonder if anyone took my place while I was away? This mission took more time than I had expected."
      David: "Yes, almost five weeks in this universe. And, as we now know, in yours. Wait a sec... That's exactly the amount of time it took, according to the newspaper article, until the town became normal again!"


      (I don't think I'm able to make another episode with the lag going on, although I would've loved to alter EVERY premade household over the course of this story. Don Lothario's story could've been pretty cool for example.)

      Oh right, I actually do have a picture! It's just a CAS picture of the teenage Eliza Pancakes/Willovitch, but it's something at least. All the in-game screenshots I tried to make turned out ugly so I couldn't use them. Not even a last "Connie goes through the portal" screenshot was possible :(

    Okay, little update for you:
    After a few days of just waiting for the weekend to visit the Goths, Mortimer suddenly called Zoe and wanted to come over. She has previously talked to him in the park, and apparently he did consider believing her. So he told them to find more information in the library of Willow Creek. Interestingly, Mortimer's visit occurred just a day after an alien had stepped through the wormhole in their lab.
    Zoe and Connie went there as David had to sleep. Zoe read through several history books in search of anything about Bella Goth and, because of what happened in Connie's universe, Arlo Bunch. While Connie constantly kept in touch with Mortimer to tell him what they found out.

      They realised something really interesting: Bella was in fact married to Arlo Bunch for some time! Newspaper articles from twenty years ago refer to unusual events in a town called "Riverview", in which the entire town's population was aged up by several years, in irregular amounts (not everyone aged the same). At first the situation was weird, but five weeks later another similar event reverted most of the changes. Among the most notable, everyone got their former age back. Bella therefore wasn't married to Arlo Bunch anymore and the wrong entries in the town's register were erased a few days later.
      Only people from outside the town could remember the event, except for a young, highly pregnant woman called [b]Connie Frio[/b] and her husband who lived in Riverview! This meant that the timeline must have been restored later somehow.

      With this new knowledge, Zoe and Connie went to the Villa Ophelia where the Goths lived. Everything was normal there. They told Bella, and with the help of Mortimer they convinced her that they were right. Bella remembered this happening, or at least that everybody outside of town talked about it. And she remembered Connie's face - she was her babysitter after all. Of course Bella couldn't talk about the things that happened later after that, or else she'd risk to contaminate the timeline (as a secret agent, she very well understood such things, and she believed Zoe mostly because they both work at S.I.M.S.). So Connie went to talk a bit with Cassandra instead while Bella told Zoe what they had hoped: Everything happened according to the plan, and the Goths didn't move to Pleasantview so Bella never got abducted.

      And that's how Bella got to know about her fate in the other timeline. And they also just learned that Connie's timeline is in fact also David's timeline, although they do live in different universes. "This explains a lot", David said when they talked about it at home, "I already wondered how you [Connie] could step through the portal without complications. I expected a disturbance, like you not having memories of something small, but it worked perfectly instead. [David likes to theorise, and he did so immediately] And if we live in the same timeline, then that means that the forum through which we met must be connecting several points in time. It's likely to connect ALL of them, actually. We might be able to talk to someone from the future with it! Which you technically did by talking to me, by the way. But I'm talking about the FAR future, not just twenty but maybe two hundred years Into The Future! Wouldn't that be amazing?"

      When they talked a bit more they suddenly noticed their scanners (neatly integrated into the phones of David and Zoe) reporting temporal crazyness at the Pancakes' house in Willow Creek (they had placed a sensor there to observe the place, because the Goths live in that area). And so they each drank a Need Fixer serum, David took the Simray he just created as the original ones didn't survive the switch to New Save, and then they took the next taxi to Willow Creek's eastern area. The Simray's name is Susan by the way.

      And now, David, Zoe, Connie and Susan are on their way to the Pancakes' house. David also took his rebuilt Momentum Conservator with him, which was used when Connie came into his universe to even out the temporal disturbances they expected. The MC should help them to control whatever is going on there, and close all remaining holes they have shot into time by using their portal.


      ("little update" ^^ ...Don't ask what "normal-sized update" looks like xD)
