The present year of 2021 is mostly adapted, but is still struggling with the long-term consequences.
The result may be something similar to Children of Men, even being around the same amount of time since the Event (Children of Men is set 18 years after). I suspect people will be engaging in even more violence and suicide, as there are more of them around to die.

Dreamless had a similar concept, although there the two characters existed on opposite sides of the same world, and each was aware that the other actually existed.
