You'd disagree with anything I said, even if you'd usually agree with it. Am I bothered?

No.

I was just offering a possible way of shoehorning in a DSM story arc without effecting major changes on factions and stuff that some might not want changed. You can take it or leave it, whatever.

Yeah, well my opinion is better than yours. I am the great and powerful Silver, and the best part of you was on your Mom's thigh.

I think you will find that the best part of me was on your mum's thigh, last week...

But the fun part is that even though they could be parallel universes, you never really know for sure.  Maaaaaybe they're different universes. Maybe they're from different points on the same universe's timeline.  Maybe they're mashed-up elements from multiple reconstruktions of the same universe.  Maybe it's all a dream, or an aborted alternate timeline, or a hoax perpetuated by evil twins from the Nega-Nega-verse.

I think the best way to look at it is like 1980s soap operas.  The true version of events is whatever best serves the story at any given moment.

You know, one thing I've always wondered...
Are parallel universes based off of a single point, or are they based off of individual parallel universes?
Example: There are two PU(parallel universes). One has Silvadream as the nicest guy on earth,(PUA) and the other has one where Silvadream was never born. (PUB). Do PUA and PUB both have their own set of parallel universes?(Aka, PUA has a universe where Silvadream is a pile of sludge, another one where the Hill crushed him, etc, and PUB has PU's where Silvadream was born, but died immediately because his mom deemed him to ugly to live... etc.). Basically what I'm saying, is is there a "set" of PU's, and each individual PU has its OWN "set?" And then you combine this with Rekonstruktions and it just blows your mind with the Infinity to the Power of Infinity.

It could be all of the above. Or none. You choose.  :P

I actually think the Americans were perfectly right to revolt against King George, but then, I am an English Anti-Monarchist (a very rare breed indeed). So as far as I am concerned your ancestors were on the wrong side.

Whatever serves your story.  If it's not interesting enough that somebody makes a story out of it, it doesn't exist.  Everything else is fair game.

This.  Always this.

Collaboration often, not always, but often, increases the awesomeness therein.  It's worth taking a look at, anyway, in the interest of building a better story.

I would agree with QuantumSurfer, but then, I would anyhow. The point is the best solution is the one that increases the fun for everyone, inc parallel universes/rekonstruktions, shoehorning, :fudge: , and all of the aforementioned methods in previous posts.
