The problem with trying to use the prompt "what if" to have Natalia contemplate what life might have been like as Meryl is that it makes me think I should just actually write a fic where she's Meryl. But I don't want to get involved in something that complex.
Dammit. It would be cool, too.
You know, someone's probably already done it. I haven't looked. And I know someone, somewhere has to have written porn called "Enter the Amazing Guy". I still might anyway.
