I had fun thinking of a few plot possibilities...
- Someone isn't who they seem to be, but everyone believes them. One person doesn't, but keeps up the appearance of believing them.
- Someone isn't who most people think he is, and those who know who he really is don't actually have it right either.
- There is a mystery afoot, but it's actually no mystery to the person seeking help with it.
- There are bad things happening to helpless people, but these things were actually planned by the rescuers.
Methinks I must write a not-as-it-seems story one of these days.
(P.S.-I really enjoyed part two of the Sherlock Holmes story, "The Valley of Fear". Just sayin'.)
