The Myconet, Part 49

There was a strange strobing flash of darklight, the smell of burning toast, and I distinctly heard one of Creepy’s silly newt-person friends dolefully muttering somewhere in the distance.

Real-time timeline changes may very well be my biggest beef with time travel stories …

… they fundamentally misunderstand the whole concept of time, the now, cause and effect …

… something changes in the past, then it will always already have changed come the present. There would be no disappearing objects or people, since they would have never been there in the first place …

… shorthand to indicate a shift to an alternate reality or timeline, but in that case the surrounding world, including the time traveller, should be oblivious to the change, since the original state never existed …

… oh god help me if the real-time change is a gradual fading out that characters are aware of! IT MAKES EVEN LESS FUCKING SENSE! AAAARRRGGGHHHHH …

Then the strobing and the smell and the muttering voice went away, and I stumbled sideways but managed not to fall over this time.
