At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements ;)
Do you ever watch Masterpiece Classic? There are in the final season of Mr. Selfridge. By the time you read this, the season and the series will be over (although I bet you'll be able to find it on some streaming service eventually). In a recent episode, one of the characters did something that had me scratching my head. So, I thought I'd throw it out there...
What if a long time good friend died under suspicious circumstances? Something has made you suspect another friend of having something to do with it. How would you confront him/her? Would you confront him/her? What would make you think you'd be safe around that person now?
