Description:

What if someone with an eidetic memory could remember other timelines? How would those memories look to such a person... or to the people around them? How would it feel to have history changing around them?
What happens when such a person remembers dying?

Notes:

The Flash Sideways series is written on the simple premise that Leonard Snart has an eidetic memory and is able to remember other timelines that he's experienced.
But unlike the Flash and assorted other time travelers, he does not need to experience these other timelines as a time traveler to remember them... he merely needs to be affected by the changes in some way.
And unlike Cisco, he fully remembers these other timelines, not as a "flash" or "vibe" of something else, but as completely and vividly as the one he's living in now.

It was originally a random "what if" story (and thus would have belonged in my "DC Random" series), but got less random as I started piling on the consequences. It is now part of my personal headcanon and pops up in several of my fics.
