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 ;)
Ah, the fall TV season. New shows. And this year, a couple of them have time travel elements. Like Timeless, which is all about time travel. And Frequency, which doesn't have anyone time traveling, but the timeline gets messed up all the same.
Both shows hit an interesting snag...
What if you messed up your timeline (via time travel or some other means) so that your fiancé(e) no longer knew who you were? Or, you suddenly have a fiancé(e) that you don't remember at all?
