You know, the old right place/right time scenario (or wrong place/wrong time). In other words, I have a character who I want to convey is destined/fated to have a certain thing(s) happen to her. She's "supposed" to move to a new place, "supposed" to encounter certain people, "supposed" to be stuck in a given situation, only she doesn't know that. What are some good ways to get this across without sounding too cliche, or cheesy? I don't want to literally say that what she's gotten herself into is fate - but that's the point I'd like to try and make. Thanks!
