Protect the Timeline?
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 ;)
Another time travel question...
What if a friend of yours was doing the time travelling, and he/she has just come back from the future (or, future him/herself is visiting you in the past)? What if he/she knew something about your untimely demise? (By "untimely", I mean you'll be killed, not die of old age or some unpreventable disease.) Would you want to know about it?
