22.) If your character could time travel, where would they go?

[Another one that Jason wanted to tell himself:]

I swear to god I just saw Trev think the words Hitler and cupboard. "You'd want to meet your real Mom, right?" I say before he can completely out us as geeks to the Nice Lady who's been pretending not to notice our stuff.

Now he just looks totally baffled. "Why?"

"Because she died when you were so little, y'know? I mean, if it was my Mom I know I'd want to."

"Well, that's because Susan's -- but, it would be... weird to go running after someone I don't remember just because she's my 'real Mum'. Really, what does that even mean?"

"She was your Mom, dude. Wouldn't you be even a little bit curious?"

He's actually starting to look angry. "I had a Mum, in all the ways that mattered. Why doesn't Nora count as real?"

I think he just doesn't want to get into thinking about the whole family thing for him at all, which is... well, yeah, I guess I can kind of see where he's coming from with that. Almost. Maybe. "Okay, forget it, so where would you go, then?"

He thinks about it, and says, "It doesn't say it would only have to be to see something that's already happened, does it? Forward might be interesting..." And then he goes all gloomy: "But then again."

"Spoilers," I agree, catching his point. For him, especially.

"Right. Well, I think I'd choose something like seeing if Henry the Eighth was as big of a total wanker as Cecily always says he was, then. What about you?"

This much I'm sure about. "I want to go be a spy with Julia Child."

"...Yes. You would."
