Very cool meme  
From joonscribble

Inspired by Doctor Who's "Turn Left:" Pick one of my stories and tell me a point in the tale that you'd change. Something tiny (e.g. "and then Fay chose silver glitter instead of gold") or big (e.g. "and then Rose was arrested instead of Jack") and I'll tell you how that one difference would have altered the course of the entire story.

If Dylan Cartwright didn't exist

This actually surprised me by how much the story would change. It could go three ways:

A - Jeremy Blake (Graylin's dad) was introduced to Tamsin by Dylan, so if he wasn't there, they might not have met and Tamsin wouldn't have become pregnant and gone to Chicago in the first place. So, no story. However, if they did end up meeting, somehow:

B - The shield necklace that Graylin wears is made from a key chain Dylan brought back from Ireland as a gift for Tamsin. So, if he hadn't done that, Graylin wouldn't have had any protection from Blake and would have been taken by him. Were that the case, I probably would have kept Tamsin alive either long enough to tell Harry that Graylin had been taken or alive permenantly, with the same result. Then the story would have been about finding Graylin before Blake killed her, instead of protecting Graylin. Should Tamsin have given an alternate piece of jewelry to Graylin and the story remained the same as the original:

C - Jordana Cartwright would have been given custody of Graylin. Were that the case, I would have played up the romance between Jordana and Harry more, probably ending with the promise that she and Graylin would be back to visit, soon.
