When I read this, I was. *blushes* "Doom doom doom-doom doomie doomie..."

*ahem* Jay, just watch out for the time paradoxes if you insist on writing time travel. You don't want anyone running into their other selves, sleeping with their grandparents, etcetera and so forth.

*feels like her planned Gir comment was too late*

I'm doing magical time travel... which basically means I get to make up the rules. :D

Well, if you make your own rules, you pretty much bend them according to what you need in the story. You probably don't even have to decide if you want to go with the idea that there's only one universe that changes according to what happens in the past, or if you want to go with the idea that for each possible change in the past there's a separate (parallel) universe that reflects it. How crucial is the time travel to your story, anyway? If it's only of secondary importance, you could theoretically get away with it without killing your brain with questions like 'what if', and 'when', and 'then what.'
But yeah - doom is upon you. ;)

And yeah, that? That whole thing you just wrote? That is why I swore never to write time travel. My head. OW.

That said, so far it's just Dan being a pesticle and I've managed to contain the damage. Exile on the other hand is very angry at him. He wasn't supposed to get away with what he just did.
