Hey people! So...this Saturday I went to see If/Then and it was ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY PERFECT! Okay, so Idina Menzel wasn't in it...but Jackie Burns was AMAZING! So, if you haven't seen If/Then, I warn you! Spoilers ahead!

Plot idea: (If you haven't seen If/Then, look it up!) So...You know how Anthony Rapp plays a character (Lucas) who is scarily similar to Mark from RENT? Well, What if Elizabeth never went with Kate or Lucas, but instead went off on her own and met up with Mark?

"How 'bout it Liz?"

"Whaddya say, Beth?"

I looked over at Kate, then back at Lucas.

Who should I go with? My new, self-proclaimed best friend, or my old, short-term college boyfriend? God, who do I obsess and debate like this?

What if?

What if?

But that's just it. That's why I came back, isn't it? What if I always belonged in the city?

Then again, what if I'm bound for disaster? But Damn, I'm flirting with forty, I don't have much time to think this way anymore…

Will I ever just learn how to live and not wonder what if?


I turned to look over at Kate, who was eagerly motioning to someone she had lovingly dubbed "Sexy Guitar Guy."

I looked back at Lucas, who was holding a flyer for his protest. No, sorry…it's not a protest, it's a "peaceful co-operative demonstration."

Just then, my phone rang. I pulled my phone out of my pocket and looked at the number.


I looked over at Kate and Lucas, but their attentions were elsewhere.

I shrugged, hitting the ignore button and putting it back in my pocket.

"Actually guys…I think I'm going to go and take a drive. It's been a while, and I've missed this place."

"Okay, catch you later." Lucas shrugged, slinging his bag over his shoulder.

"It's your life," Kate joked, pulling me into a hug.

"See you later."

I smiled, waving at both of them and turning to leave.

No turning back…
