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 ;)
What if you came home and discovered a dead body in your house? And the person looked exactly like you?
I know, there's one obvious answer: call the police. But then what? Let's assume that you don't know who this person is, how they got there, or if they (or you) was the target.
