    Is This Correct? Does It Make Any Sense?

    Is this correct? Can I use the verb "to give" in this context?

    At the ruins, a weird, prehistoric animal appears, and our lives give a fatidic turn.


    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    "Take a ........turn" "fatidic" is not really appropriate.

    Cervantes, if you use the word 'fatidic' in Yakima, Washington, the majority of people would have absolutely no idea what you are talking about!!!!

    Is there a different word you could use in your sentence?
