What’s in the Box?

EW just posted this very fun video on their site.  OK, first of all don’t get too excited, this isn’t an official Lost video.  It’s pretty much an intricate form of fanfic.  This incredibly talented guy created this video in the style of Cloverfield using the music and sounds of Lost (there’s also a few overt Lost references too).  Take a gander at the video below.

I’d love to delve deeper into this video but I’m very sleepy.  If you want to know more about what’s happening here go to the EW site, they answer almost all the questions you could have.  (I’d love to talk about this video later, so leave a comment so I have an excuse to talk more.)

Foreign Theories: Anon’s Annie theory

A very faithful NCJL reader and commenter, Anon, recently posted a glorious theory about Annie in the comments section of my revlysis for The Man Behind the Curtain.  This theory is intensely detailed and well planned out.  Here it is in full:

Annie – I came up with this way out there theory about Annie.

Widmore owned the island. Annie’s Widmore’s daughter too (making her Penny’s sister) and he bought her to the island when she was very young (notice she’s very experienced with the way things are). Widmore would come and go from the island whenever he wanted but he wouldn’t let Annie leave. Annie and Ben became close and eventually married. Annie somewhat knew how obsessed Ben was with eventually ruling the island and how consumed he was with the island’s power. She didn’t like it and tried to stop him visiting Jacob all the time.

She got pregnant but the island made her miscarry so she began to despise the island because it not only took away her baby, it was slowly taking away her man. Then one day Ben comes back to the Barracks with newborn Alex, and he and Annie raise her for a few years. The fertility problems continue now for the whole of the Initiative and Richard is planning to purge them so the natives can rule again. Ben is adamant about not purging, because of Alex and Annie. Richard insists Alex will be okay but never promises Annie’s safety. Annie overhears this and heads to Mikhail. She knows he can contact the outside world but can he leave? He comes clean and tells her about the submarine (she was too young to remember she came to the island in it) and she makes her plans to leave. Ben lets her because he knows that’s the only way she’ll survive.

Before she leaves she tells Alex to never agree with her father if she feels he’s doing the wrong thing or too consumed with the island – we see that attitude in her all through the show – what if the reason Ben let her act that way was because it reminded him of Annie?

She leaves and goes to live with Penny for a while, meeting Des and enjoying a normal life but still missing Ben. Eventually Des goes missing and Annie thinks he may have landed on the island so sets out to help Penny find him whilst telling Penny everything about the island. Charles does not know she’s off the island. Eventually, when Penny rescues Des and the O6, Annie is on that boat too, meets the O6 and helps them form the big lie. She tries to ask them about the island but none of them will budge, too disturbed by it all. She is shocked when one of them mentions John Locke however, because Richard and Ben had been working together to try to get him to the island for years.

After the week on the boat, she, Penny and Des sail around for a while, then Annie gets a call from Kate saying she’d feel better if Annie lived in L.A (they became good friends). Annie goes to live in L.A and Kate eventually stays with Annie after breaking up with Jack. As time goes on, it becomes clear the O6 want to go back to the island, something that scares Annie so she backs out and breaks all contact with them. One night Penny calls her and tells her someone tried to kill her, she’s okay but injured. Annie feels guilty for leaving Penny and heads to her and Des. They decide the only safe place for Penny and Des to be is…the island.

Somehow, Des, Penny and Annie arrive at the island before the 06 do (Pen and Annie have seriously mad navigational skillz) and make friends with the left behinders thanks to Des. Locke has left the island, Annie is a little disappointed to have missed meeting the “special” one. Annie heads back to the barracks for the first time in years and breaks into Ben’s house and sees his pictures of Alex as a teen. Very emotional. She heads back to the beach camp where everyone is and doesn’t tell anyone about her past. One day Richard comes to the camp and is less than pleased to see Annie again but doesn’t reveal who she is. Things are going swimmingly otherwise and Annie even tells Sawyer that Kate is still alive AND is keeping his promise.

One early morning, Annie is asleep on the beach when she hears some voices. She opens her eyes and can see the O6 coming up the shore with a coffin. The voices wake the rest of the camp and it’s reunion time. Annie heads back to her tent and gets something out of her backpack. She heads back out, a little upset at all the reunions with no one to greet her (Kate’s busy with Sawyer lol) and then she sees Ben. They hug, tears everywhere, and we see Annie is holding her Ben doll. It’s all very sweet then suddenly Annie hears a muffled cry. Then a thud. Another. And another. She opens her eyes and breaks away from Ben. Staring at…the coffin. The thuds and cries get more frantic. Sayid opens the coffin and Locke bursts out, gasping for air. He stands up, shakes himself off, looks back at all the stunned faces.

“Hello, again”.

a Pre-Lost fanfic

This is amazing.  I encourage everyone to read this story.  Someone wrote this glorious story about what happened on the island before 815 crashed.  It is most definitely not canon.  But seriously it explains everything.

Go read it, I dare you.

Here’s the link again.
