TAIA (Pronounced Tie-Ah) also known as the Temporal Anomaly Intervention Agency, was the inevitable result of the invention of the concept of time travel.

Every person, rock, tree, insect, animal and microbe has its timeline. And, like any organism or crystal, the world-line is made up of the individual timelines.

The agency tends the world-line, pruning the chaos, ensuring integrity and health.

However, there are humans involved. And some humans are anarchic by nature. And an anarchic human, with a time machine, is an especially dangerous thing.

Elizabeth, now with her deceased duplicate's memories, was very angry.

    Yeah, well... Boris seemed to gather a LOT of reader hate 😉 Especially from Neville for some reason. 🤔

    Idiot humans cause enough trouble in the present and, consequently, the future. If they get to where they can monkey with the past we are in deep trouble!

    Very thought-provoking, Jeff.

    "However, there are humans involved." This one line says it all and sets the stage for whatever is to come. Intrigued and wanting more.

    Yes, I did seem to get hot under the collar wrt Boris for some reason. But it was probably ‘Boris transference’ and so maybe your Boris was just an innocent joker and not a complete twat. I’m sure I’ll find out. 😐
