Oh, we're not going to die. It's more like all of this will just stop. Things will go back to the way they used to be. That's the power of the Bastion. This whole place is a living record of the times before the Calamity. The way things were before the story. Good times, right?
You'd be your old self again. Think of all those times that didn't go your way. All of life's little setbacks. Imagine if you could have another go at them. No mistakes. Anyone you've ever hurt, everything you've ever done... you could do it over. And, wouldn't that be grand. Wouldn't you agree? I guess there's nothing more to say. Who am I kidding.
Look, there's something else. A confession. How come I know so much about the Bastion? Well, I designed the place, but that's beside the point. There's one problem with a place that sets things back to a bygone time. You can't test it. So, you're probably wondering if the Calamity happened already what's to stop it from happening again, after the Bastion does its thing? The answer is... I don't know.
