Possible dream sequences, opportunities for non-real inclusions, and other escapes from the series (whether for AUs or otherwise) based upon events therein.
I have tried to create a (reasonably) systematic list of possibilities to act as a checklist, and I make no claim to exclusivity (some of the possibilities have been developed in various ways). Other dreams may, of course, be possible. As with all such 'escapes from reality/into another plotline' due care has to be exercised. (A last sentence along the lines of 'But, dear reader, it was all a dream', with no hints during the story, is usually a cop out. Likewise a character dreaming of a negative outcome and, on waking, making no changes.)
I will consider additions (and bring out a supplementary list if there are enough of them).
