The Good Lie
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 ;)
I started watching The Good Place. It's not a favorite, but it's good enough until other shows supplant it. But it's what prompted this week's question...
What if you told a big fat lie to get into a place where you weren't supposed to be? What if it turned out that that was exactly where you belonged?
