I have been trying to write stories about possible but improbable futures sort of like Idiocracy or Conan O'Brian's "in the year two thousand" skit.
Will sounds too much like must, and could makes the story sound dependent on present action. I want a story that describes A future not THE future.
Either way I go I overuse could, may, will or must.
What wording would fit such improbable prophecies - unlikely future claims?
