I reserve the right to reconsider this random thought

when I am not typing while the dog eats her dinner and am about to leave to bring the kids to taekwondo, but:

The reason "If You Were a Dinosaur, My Love" is SFF is that the first time you're reading it, you don't know if it's set in a world where If The Velociraptor From Jurassic Park Were Your Girlfriend (for instance) could be real, and it's that tension about the possibility that gives the story some of its emotional weight.

(Yes, I know the second link came after, I'm using it as an example.)
