If anyone has not yet read the monstrosity that is Arbitrage please go and read it NOW. After you have finished reading it come and read my explanation and analysis and then talk to me because I crave people to talk to me about this. I wrote this originally for Justinne , but it ended up being for anyone and everyone who felt a little a LOT dazed by this fic. I came out from the fic more eager to learn than ever before, so it was a positive experience.

Okay, so i read arbitrage a couple of days ago and let me tell you, i fucking loved it. If you have not read the story, i strongly advise you to read it. Alright, you ready to get mindfucked even further? The beginning of the story is of kyungsoo waking up from a car crash, while being introduced to the set of numbers written on his palm, and the content in his wallet. And so, jongdae takes this kyungsoo to an apartment and this particular kyungsoo will remain here for the rest of the fic.
By the end of the fic, we will learn that this particular kyungsoo that opened the story with is actually the kyungsoo that has been thrown back 8 months prior to the ferrai crash with kai. So what makes this story the pure masterpiece that it is? After having this knowledge, it is safe for us to point out that there are a total of 3 kyungsoos existing.
Now, this is where my explanation will get kind of messy so bare with me. We will never see this fourth kyungsoo in action because by the time prime crashes the ferrai with kai, prime will turn into wildcard and the whole loop will start again with kai running into wildcard 8 months prior to the ferrai crash.
You get me? And fourth will always end up seeing that kai dead on dec. Kai will wake up in the apartment alone because wildcard went to the crash site the morning after the crash [ dec. Double is also the one who will explain the whole time travelling by car thing to kai. Okay, i know some of you will be confused as fuck by this point so i will break it down even simplier.
So if your brain can still function correctly at this point and think it through, the cycle works like this:. Everytime prime crashes the ferrai with kai, prime will turn into wildcard and the whole loop will start again. And notice how during the last part of the loop, it ends with prime.
Am i even making sense to you? ANYWAYS, back on track the kyungsoo at the apartment who kai finds the polariod and who explains the 8 month jump to kai is Wildcard and the next time kai sees normal kyungsoo double he will try to convince him to get a ferrai to crash together because he already has the knowledge of crashing the ferrai from wildcard. Maybe because double loves kai or maybe its fate, Double somehow went and crashed again to become prime and used ALOT of time to think it through because the next time kai sees him, he shows up as prime: the rich bastard from gangnam.
And as how we all know the story, kyungsoo crashes the ferrai together. Kai dies but kyungsoo gets send back 8 months prior to the ferrai crash turning kyungsoo prime into wildcard and starting the entire loop again. This is just my own assumption but i feel that the reason why kai was the only one that died was because kyungsoo was driving and kai, has already died from the crash he got into the night he was upset with sehun and luhan.
So, i feel that this is a kai in a parallel universe dying in the ferrai mirroring the real kai dying on that night he crashed with kyungsoo. As to why they keep repeating the 8 months before the crash that killed kai, i seriously could not come up with a relevant answer. Perhaps, the crash was a supernatural experience and sent them to a parallel universe to experience it the crash differently? I could be wrong though, this is just my personal take on it. For us, the year is and kai dies in This would mean that we, the readers are somehow in a loop as well.
SO, the future me and so on would actually be the present me and the present me at the moment would actually be me from the past. OMFG are you still with me? This is like saying the adult you trying to stop your mom from giving birth to you.
How the fuck is that possible? Say by some crazy and non logical reason wildcard DID save kai from dying, then all of the kyungsoos and all the kais would cease to exist and the story itself would probably cease to exist as well.
The end. Remember when i told you to remember the polaroid and the set of numbers that was introduced at the opening of the story because of the significance it held? Well OKAY, look the set of numbers is the date where kai dies and the polaroid was the picture of kai and prime right before he died as well.
So can you tie it all together now? Kai was meant to die. Shortest explanation: Kai dies. BB, are you still hanging on? The story itself is perfect, but i have to tell you, it is a fic that requires your full attention and reading it just once would not be enough.
You have to go back and reread it. Just message me and i will get right on it! I hope you guys liked my analysis i tried really hard and hopefully, this, alongside the other genius analysis will some how help you understand the story more.
OTL ANYWAYS, back on track the kyungsoo at the apartment who kai finds the polariod and who explains the 8 month jump to kai is Wildcard and the next time kai sees normal kyungsoo double he will try to convince him to get a ferrai to crash together because he already has the knowledge of crashing the ferrai from wildcard.

[exo] Arbitrage (1/3)
Track A, trader at an investment bank. Track B, new recruit of a race crew called EXO. Track C… track C involves someone named Kai and a whole lot of bad decisions. Let me just start with saying that Exotics write some of the absolute best fanfictions out there. Some may disagree, but rarely have I seen such amazingly talented writers in any fandom before. First of all, if you have not read the story yet, please do, and then come back to read this review. There will be plenty of spoilers here, and honestly, no matter how deep I dig into this, you will not understand half of what I need you to understand without reading the story first.
