In some stories, time travellers cannot change the past. It is widely accepted that this is metaphysically possible. In some stories, time travellers can change the past. Many philosophers have explained how that, too, is metaphysically possible.

Further, I argue that we can make sense of stories where some events appear to be ‘fixed points in time’.
