I'm the Bad Guy
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 ;)
One favorite trope in speculative fiction is the alternate universe. Most sci fi shows do at least one episode where we get to see our main characters live lives almost like the ones in the main universe. If you know what I'm talking about, this question will be quite familiar.
What if you ended up in a parallel universe and discovered that you were now the villain of the story?
