If I gathered your question correctly, Claire has been tackling the idea of things already "pre-destined" or whether fate can be altered. I'm assuming because they were not killed in January, either history was wrong like Claire sometimes says or that maybe they did cheat fate (since they have been conscious of this day in January for quite some time and them purposely spending the "doom" day at Brianna's cabin). So, I think this is a question that these books leave dwindling. I personally think that they are changing their destiny but that is just my opinion. At the end, I am a bit confused because I don't recall anything stating that they were meant to die in December of that year and clearly they survived. Maybe this time it was luck. I think an Echo in the Bone will clarify this however. If I totally screwed your question, please correct me!
