"The atmosphere in the room was so thick with dramatic cliches you could have cut it with a knife," - Thursday Next, The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde

― Jasper Fforde, One of Our Thursdays Is Missing

“Looping” was a slang term for Closed Loop Temporal Field Containment. They popped the criminal in an eight-minute repetitive time loop for five, ten, twenty years. Usually it was a Laundromat, doctor’s waiting room or a bus stop, and our presence often caused time to slow down for others near the loop. Your body aged but never needed sustenance. It was a cruel and unnatural — yet cheap and required no bars, guards or food.
