OOC: off_island_ooc (check for more info.)
The story begins at the end of season two after Desmond turns the failsafe key. Electromagnetic energy has been detected coming from the island, and the survivors of flight 815 just may have a chance at being rescued at last. Penelope sends out a crew to investigate the unusual energy in the middle of the ocean, while back on the island, the LOSTies are just trying to escape from the clutches of the others, and keep from killing each other.
After a struggle between the Others, the survivors, heroes and villains from the mainland, and possibly even an appearance from the real Dharma initiative, the survivors are rescued at last.* After spending so long on the island, they're all eager to return to the lives they had before.
What will they do, now that they're not on the island? Will they keep in touch, or drift apart now that they're not stuck together? Will they go home and carry on with their lives, trying to pick up where they started? Is that even possible, now? What about Kate? Will she continue running for the rest of her life, or take on a new identity? What will the Others do, now that their island has been discovered?
*Due to the fact that, unfortunately, none of us actually know the secret of LOST island, (Hey, if you do, we'd all love to hear) we're going to assume it's a real, locatable island in the Pacific, and that if someone was looking for it, they'd be able to see it.
