I got a story idea a few weeks ago, but I haven’t really bothered to put pen to paper to develop it at all. So it’s now up for grabs!
I was listening to Almost Educational Episode 131 about time travel. At some point while I was listening, the idea for a piece of flash fiction popped into my head. Unfortunately, as is usually the case with my ideas, if I don’t act on it fast, the motivation to do it fades pretty quickly.
The main premise is this: The phenomenon known as “frequency illusion” (also known as the “Baader-Meinhof phenomenon”) is actually a ripple effect caused by some kind of change to the timeline in the past.
That’s about as far as I got with the idea, so I’d love to see what someone can come up with here. If it’s already been done, point me in the right direction!
