Can you use eut/fut instead of avait, is that wrong?
I know it's only gonna be right for literary writing and storytelling, but still. You can do that instead of the pluperfect in writing, right?
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate pouvoir in Le Plus-que-parfait (pluperfect tense)"
No. eut/fut are passé simple and need to be used accordingly. Passé simple is not a replacement for past perfect tense.
