First, we know that he caused everything about himself to disappear, except whatever was kept in a shoebox. In a shoebox, we find a story about Alan and a broken switch, identified as the Clicker by Alan himself. The story proves that Alan Wake was a character created by Thomas Zane, come to life. The Clicker in the shoebox was the original broken switch, owned by Thomas Zane, and it had alwas been there. The Clicker that Alan remembers was a perfect duplicate, which the story caused to exist. Presumably, even Alan himself was a perfect duplicate of Thomas Zane, created as a SelfInsertFic.

[[WMG: More people know about and have been fighting the Taken than we know baout.]]
It's stated many times that every year, as Deerfest approaches, which presumably coincides somehow with an ebbing of power on the DP's part, there are always incidents. Cynthia Weaver is the obvious, given that she's the CrazyPrepared lady who lives in the abandoned power plant (and which is technically in violation of local and federal law, but which the locals don't prosecute her for,) and is always prepared against the darkness, but there's always reports of people firing off their guns at Deerfest, but comparatively few fatalities. Some of that, of course, is likely standard rednecks making noise, but it would make sense if people were seeing Taken, reacting appropriately (melting the darkness off them and then shooting them,) only to have no evidence that they'd ever been under attack in the first place, which they just keep quiet about. (Also, the church is always lit at Deerfest. Hrm...)

[[WMG: Every event we see was orchestrated by Thomas Zane.]]
In the 1970s, Thomas Zane, who used to write poems, lost his lover to the Dark Presence, so, after failing to bring her back, he decided to change his literary style and write a story to fight the Dark Presence. But just how deep did he go with this plan? Well, according to all the little clues, pretty deep.

First, we know that he caused everything about himself to disappear, except whatever was kept in a shoebox. In a shoebox, we find a story about Alan and a broken switch, identified as the Clicker by Alan himself. The story proves that Alan Wake was a character created by Thomas Zane, come to life. The Clicker in the shoebox was the original broken switch, owned by Thomas Zane, and it had alwas been there. The Clicker that Alan remembers was a perfect duplicate, which the story caused to exist. Presumably, even Alan himself was a perfect duplicate of Thomas Zane, created as a SelfInsertionFic.

The Anderson brothers used excerpts from Thomas Zane's poems in their songs, which is impossible (as those poems have ceased to exist) unless the brothers themselves are characters invented by Thomas Zane, and the lyrics of their songs are self-quotations. The Anderson brothers calling Alan "Tom" is a way for Thomas Zane to say "See this Alan Wake character? This is who he's really supposed to be."

Alan's literary style is full of PurpleProse, almost as if he was a poet attempting to write prose. "Departure" is written in exactly the same style, but then, why doesn't Alan remember writing it? The answer is that he didn't write it. Thomas Zane did. At the beginning of the game, we explicitly see Thomas Zane giving Alan a page: that's because it was Thomas Zane who originally had it... just like every other page Alan finds.

*** This [[Alan Wake 2 concept video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQRUx-w6t4s]] explains that Mr. Scratch's mind used to mirror Alan's own, but it changed for the worse when people started making up rumors about what happened at the lake (Alan Wake supposedly being a serial killer who chopped his wife to pieces and murdered campers), because Mr. Scratch is a fictional character come to life. Also, the Dark Presence tok over him like it had taken over Barbara, because Alan Wake acquiring those traits would be a plot hole like Barbara returning.

You play as Alice, looking for Alan and trying to figure out what's going on. The third game will be simply "Wake", though I have no idea who you'd play as. Maybe both Alan and Alice, to call back to ''MaxPayne2''?
