There are so called streams in this blog which appear to center around Jody McCarty. Whether or not she's the cause for this is unknown. It's not seen as different universes or different timelines but rather that reality itself is split, either for the entire world or simply her. Interaction between the streams is possible and there appears to be a cause and effect relation between them.
- Stream 1: Jody is a goddess with very limited powers.
- Stream 2: Jody is a screenwriter, writing about the events of stream 4
- Stream 4: Jody is a normal girl, being chased by the Pendulum
