a narrative device where the scene changes to a later time (the future of the main narrative)
An alteration of story order in which the plot presentation moves forward to future events, then returns to the present.
Scene that breaks the chronological continuity of the main narrative by depicting events which happen in the future.
A flashforward (or prolepsis, also sometimes known as flash-forward or flash-ahead) in a narrative occurs when the primary sequence of events in a story is interrupted by the interjection of a scene representing an event expected, projected, or imagined to occur at a later time. Although the flashforward technique is used less frequently than its reverse, the flashback, it is often useful for defining the futuristic structure of science fiction stories, or for depicting the ambitions of a character.
