It's April Fool's Day!  
So fool us into thinking what’s not canon is canon.

Recently, I’ve been given some lovely “what if” plot bunnies and it made me consider more. This challenge is to write a “what if” story where canon is canon except for the small twist of “what if.” Call it AU, AR, or what have you, it's all about "what if." The “what if” you consider may alter canon only a little, or it may make sweeping changes. It’s up to you what you do with your “what if.”

There are a few examples of “what ifs” to choose from behind the cut. Feel free to claim any. If you come up with more “what ifs” you can leave them in a comment for others to take. And if you can’t come up with an entire fic, feel free to just comment with some wild speculation!

What if Westmoreland hadn’t died and went on the run with the rest of the cons?

What if Michael hadn’t saved Sara during the riots?

What if Tweener had led Mahone to Michael and Linc?

What if Veronica hadn’t gone to Steadman’s house alone, but called the authorities instead?

What if Jane had gone with Linc, and Aldo had stayed with LJ?

What if T-Bag hadn’t killed that C.O. (Bob?) during the riot and he talked?

What if Kellerman hadn’t shot Mahone before Mahone shot either Michael or Lincoln?

What if Sara hadn’t left the door unlocked and all the cons were captured in the infirmary?

One I’d love to see:
What if Aldo had returned after Christina died, but he was only able to take Lincoln with him because he was older, and he left Michael to foster care alone.

What if Bellick made Avocado Michael’s cellie?

What if Veronica hadn’t left for law school in Texas?

What if Kellerman had captured LJ and used him as a hostage to force Aldo out of hiding?

What if Aldo had been caught for killing Michael’s foster father and the boys learned he was their father?

What if Sara began using again after the riot?

What if Sucre refused to go along with Michael’s plan of escape?

What if Christina hadn’t died?

What if Lincoln had married Lisa?

I’d like to see this, too:
What if Aldo hadn’t killed Michael’s step-father and Lincoln returned from juvie to find Michael still there and being abused?

What if Lincoln overdosed and almost died while Michael and Veronica were still in college?

What if Lincoln abandoned Lisa and LJ for years and Michael left school to take care of them?

What if Sara had managed to kill Kellerman on the train?

And one near and dear to my heart:
What if Michael figured out that Sucre was in distress during their last phone call and went to save him from Sona?

Got more?

Re: What If?
We usually runt he challenges for each month, but we aren’t strict about deadlines! I’m just thrilled that you were inspired by the challenge. We’re going to have some changes in the com soon, but I hope you’ll continue working on your “what if” story - I’m very interested to see what you come up with!
