So I thought I'd pose another question to try and get some discussion going in the forum! I'm not sure if other readers do this, but when I'm reading books I will often think about how certain scenes could've turned out in an alternative universe. For example, after we discover that Julia has died I quite disappointed as I've always quite enjoyed the romantic interactions between Cato and his 'momentary distractions.' It offers a change of pace that I quite enjoy. As we moved past that point in the story, the death of Julia became quite a prominent story point and I have often been wondering what if Julia had survived? How would the story be different? It's quite thrilling to think about in my mind. This is a habit I find very difficult to break when reading books. What if the character did this? What if this event didn't happen? Etc. I feel like it makes the stories so much more intriguing when you unravel them and see where they lead. If you do the same then maybe you can share your own story below?
