Re: The Predator, the Prey, and the Protector (10th Installment)

Well, I did change one historical event from "our" world, by inserting Frederick Wentworth into the place that, in real life, Admiral Pellew held at the Bombardment of Algiers. But that was not due to anything time travelers did.

In general, I would say that, for the purposes of the story, major events in history cannon, in general, be changed by time travelers.

Individual events to characters who don't exist in "our" world simply proceed as individual events would proceed to real people in the here and now, without regard to the future.

Hence, if one of the fugitives Mike and Jack are trying to locate rapes and murders, of, say, Miss Smith from Emma, that murder has already been recorded in the present day of that alternate Earth, and Mike and Jack would not be able to prevent it, no matter how hard they tried, and the bad guy would simply be fulfilling destiny. However, it's quite likely that the records of such a murder wouldn't've survived to this day.

But I tried to keep it simple precisely because I didn't want to have to consider broader philosophical implications while telling my story.
