So, I've been rewatching the show, and something dawned on me. I've always felt that it was entirely possible that mother was the monster. It all makes sense now.
Mother was both the protector and the monster, therefore she was protecting the source from herself. She was doomed to live forever.

This caused Ben to turn the wheel, thus starting the chain of events that would cause the death of Charlotte, joining Dharma, Faraday returning, death of faraday, jughead plan, and Juli…Read more >

I really want to write a novellization of Lost. I've been searching forever to find out what I need to do for it to work. Do I need special rights? Do I need permission, or do I just have to give all credit to the show? I mean, there are a lot of novellizations of Star Wars, and there are even Lost books (2, I think). I just don't know.Read more >
