After you have finished reading it come and read my explanation and analysis and then talk arvitrage me because I crave people to talk to me about this. I wrote this originally for Justinnebut it ended up being for anyone and everyone who felt a little a LOT dazed by this fic. Arbitrsge came out from the fic more eager to learn than ever before, so it was a positive experience.
You may disagree with me on some of my points, but I did check excruciatingly carefully, and my theories are correct in their own way I will fight you. Also maybe some of this stuff is really obvious. Maybe it was only me who was confused.
I dumbed it down and flattened it out considerably because I suffer from Kyungsoo syndrome and I absolutely needed to have it articulated. Because that would add yet another dimension to the story which I would rather not consider.
So Jongdae takes this Kyungsoo to a different apartment where this particular Kyungsoo will remain for this fic. Of course, by the end, we realize that this Kyungsoo we see first lying on the asphalt in the rain is the Kyungsoo which has been thrown back eight months due to the joint Ferrari crash with Kai.
This is the beauty of it – the entire story itself is a loop. Okay so assuming that Kyungsoo is currently in one of his normal loops as well which he is, meaning that there is Kyungsoo Prime the Kyungsoo purposefully from the future who is working as an investment banker and Kyungsoo Double living his kaisoo life at the race track coexisting in Seoul at the same timewe can assume that there are a total of THREE Kyungsoos during much of the story.
Of course, Kyungsoo Prime and Kyungsoo Double do not know of this wild card Kyungsoo from the Ferrari crash because it was not planned. Therefore it is up to the reader to interpret whether kzisoo not this fourth Kyungsoo is ever able to save Kai. So the fourth Kyungsoo would hypothetically crash yet another car, and be thrown back in time, so that there are FIVE Kyungsoos. Each time he is unable to arbitrae the Ferrari crash, I think it is safe to assume that he will try to go back again to fix it.
I hope you understand my point. Kyungsoo could definitely choose to do so if he wanted to. Just for kicks before we proceed any further, here are links to photos of the cars mentioned in the fic. I looked them up so I could better visualize everything and better understand the characters it was genius really how well the cars correspond to the characters.
Of course, the terms are all relative. Oh also, the author provided this graphin case you did not see it. It was a helpful supplement to the written explanation of time traveling, especially in distinguishing the three Kyungsoos. But back on track. So we have already established that the first scene in the fic is Kyungsoo wild card from the eight-month jump from the Ferrari crash.
The next scenes where Kyungsoo is driving and meets EXO and goes drag racing and Kai crashes the race is normal Kyungsoo living through the events for the first time, aka Kyungsoo Double. Normal Kyungsoo is also the one who sees Kai crash the Jaguar after the race. When Kai wakes up from his Jaguar crash and stumbles into the grocery store, this Kyungsoo he meets is the Kyungsoo from the eight-month jump from the Ferrari crash.
Kyungsoo is very startled to run into Kai in this loop, but Kai continues to return to his apartment and so yeah. When Kai wakes up abandoned the morning after and heads to the garage, the Kyungsoo he sees there is actually the normal Kyungsoo Kyungsoo Double meeting Kai for the first time. And then Kai sees Kyungsoo Double arbotrage the black Genesis. So it just means that the next time normal Kyungsoo Kyungsoo Double meets Kai, he has already been through his time as Kyungsoo Prime in Gangnam and has gotten past this black Genesis crash, his point of origin, again.
You can figure it out. Every time that Kai is at the apartment with Kyungsoo, that is Kyungsoo wild card from Ferrari crash eight-month jump. So when Kai tries to have sex with Kyungsoo at the apartment, Kyungsoo pushes Kai away because this is not how he remembers having sex with Kai the first time. When Kai shows up at the racetrack a week later, the Kyungsoo he fucks is actually the normal Kyungsoo experiencing everything for the first time Kyungsoo Double and does not know that Kai had tried to fuck Kyungsoo wild card before.
To backtrack a little, it is the normal Kyungsoo who first talks to Kai about time-traveling crashes. It is Kyungsoo wild card at the apartment on whom Kai finds the Polaroid and who explains to Kai the Kaisko crash for the eight-month jump.
Kai then sees arbitrag normal Kyungsoo Kyungsoo Double and tries to convince him to buy a red Ferrari because he already has knowledge about this from Kyungsoo wild card. Of course, unbeknownst to him at the time, he is in a xrbitrage because of the Ferrari crash that is soon to happen. And so Kyungsoo and Kai crash the Ferrari together.
And Kai dies but Kyungsoo gets sent back eight months. Well, Kyungsoo wild card is devastated, so Jongdae helps him out and Kyungsoo crashes the Hyundai to get sent back in time to become a fourth Kyungsoo. We never learn what becomes of Kyungsoo. The story loops on itself by ending with the opening scene of Kyungsoo wild card waking up from the eight-month Ferrari crash.
This time around, we realize that the numbers is the date written by Kai, and that Kyungsoo caresses the Polaroid fondly. Kyungsoo wild card kaioo to wait out the eight months for his point of origin to arrive. Time to whip out the paradoxes. This is shown clearly in that Kai only died because Kyungsoo wild card from the crash went back and accidentally allowed Kai a glimpse to a future with a polaroid and a red Ferrari joint-crash.
Allow me to clarify this point: If Kyungsoo and Kai had not crashed the Ferrari, then Kyungsoo wild card would not have been around for Kai to see the polaroid and to tell him about crashing the Ferrari. But in that case, without aritrage the polaroid brought back from the future by Kyungsoo wild card from the Ferrari crash, Kai would never have gotten the idea to crash the Ferrari in the first place.
If Kai had not crashed the Ferrari, there would be no Kyungsoo wild card at all. The arbitragd likely explanation is that Kai only crashed the Ferrari because it had been preordained that the arbitrahe would happen and that Kyungsoo wild card would be sent back to tell him about the crash so that he would make the initial decision to crash the Ferrari.
So this is a looped event in and of itself. One thing is not possible without the other. Sit back and re-read and think if you must. I need you to understand me on this. This ties in nicely with the idea of Eternalism.
Eternalism is the theory that all points in time are equally real, as opposed to the idea that only the present is real.

Time is the fourth dimension, and past present and future are all already there and set in stone. The universe is an unchanging space-time block, instead of a three-dimensional world modulated by the flow of time. Kai is dead and there is no changing it.
I remember compulsively watching NOVA so some of the information I learned from that show was actually really helpful. Allow me to further explain to you the idea of branching universes, because it is relevant.
I think a lot of us probably learned this at some point in time. But like I said, I just want to articulate absolutely everything. This theory is more accurately called the many-worlds interpretation. It is an interpretation of quantum mechanics which asserts that all possible histories and all futures are equally real, but a single possibility is only allotted to a single universe. So every event is a branch point, and the possible outcomes of a decision split into different universes, and Kai is both alive and dead, but the alive Kai and the dead Kai are in different universes.
Which leads us to speculate that if Kai is dead in this universe and Kyungsoo is alive, then perhaps Kyungsoo is dead in another universe but Kai is alive.
The other universe s would, in theory, cease to exist. This means that the other universe will continue to go on, even though Kyungsoo in this universe has traveled back in time to try to prevent the Ferrari crash.
It is also unclear whether or not branched universes can possibly interact or cohere again as a result of changing the past. However, perhaps they are traveling not through time but through universes with each crash. Kyungsoo himself made the same speculation in the fic.

Also arbitrsge to the many-worlds interpretation is the many-minds interpretation, in which the distinction between worlds is made at the level of the mind of an individual observer. Think about it yourself. Also one more paradox for fun: This is a short paragraph but it is crucial. Or like I arbitfage at the beginning, Kyungsoo may try to crash again and again after the eight-month period in order to try to save Kai, whereby there would eventually be a never-ending number of Kyungsoos running around Seoul.
Because in the fic, Kai said to Kyungsoo Double: Which would suggest that the story we have just read is the final revision. It is set in stone — the past, present, and future are all equally real and already dictated by Eternalism, and this is the last revision. Kyungsoo may go back an infinite number of times to try to revise it, but what we have read is already the last revision.
Of course, all of that aside, at the end, if Kyungsoo fourth or whichever number n does manage to prevent the Ferrari crash, then Kyungsoo fourth or whichever number n would most likely cease to exist.
Please go back again and read carefully. It makes perfect sense as a paradox. That is all I have to say for now. There are doubtless countless more things to be unearthed. My brain is leaking from my pores and I am itching to talk to you.
So first off let me just articulate the chain of events.
