What if Ross and Rachel didn’t end up together? What if the Fresh Prince took place in London? What if McDreamy had never died? This month’s challenge invites you to imagine a world of “what if?” Choose two primary characters from a favorite TV show that you've watched and write a new scene that would change everything in their relationship. The show can be currently on or off the air and in any genre. Feel free to play with the sense of time or setting as a way to create a special twist. Use your imagination! Your final submission should be no longer than 10 pages.
