I definitely think I would take matters into my own hands. Like many of our favorite characters in books, I don’t think I could idly sit back and just let things happen. Of course, there are certain instances where something happens that I cannot have any control over and that’s fine. I think we all need to learn to accept those things. But, if I had the chance to change them sometimes, I probably would.
Then, we also have characters like Bella Swan who are willing to sacrifice themselves to change the future. Bella makes her decision more for love than changing the future, but it's still the same theory. She definitely doesn't trust in fate when she heads to the ballet studio in Twilight. Even with Alice's ability to see into the future, Bella cannot sit back and see how fate plays out.
I have been hired by Warner Bros. WBWord division to promote Fringe: The Complete Third Season on DVD/Blu-Ray.
