    ?Mysterious thing, time. Powerful? and when meddled with, dangerous.?

    Indeed, Professor Dumbledore is correct. Time is mysterious -- as is time travel. (Yes, it's not a Star Wars quote, but I couldn't think of any time travel Star Wars quotes besides Yoda's "Always in motion, the future is" which is only half time travel-ish. Anyways... :p)

    Fan fiction authors of the GFFA seem to be captivated by the idea of time travel ? hurtling characters from one era into another. It is a fun way to solve mysteries, save heroes from tragic fates (*cough* Anakin *cough*) and, ultimately, confuse and manipulate your characters to the point of hysterical amusement.

    Welcome to the Time Travel Index and Discussion Thread. Here you will find various fics dealing with time travel as well as various discussions focusing on all things related to time travel (*duh!* :p). This idea was a fun one that I thought of when I noticed that there are a lot of time travel fics on the boards ? especially in The Saga.

    Come in and stay a bit; discuss time travel, bring plot bunnies, new ideas ? anything goes really ? and have fun!

    If you have any ideas you want to add to this thread, please contact me. And if you want to make any art to support the time travel index (and we need lots and lots of support!), please PM as well.

    VaderLVR64 gave me kind permission to make this index.

    *Raises hand* That's me! Although, at this momet in time, I'm just a reader (hope that's okay). I've had a lot of time travel ideas, but never written any. I do have plans to write one, but it will be a while until it is started.



    Methods of Time Travel ? How Do You Get Your Characters Backwards/Forwards in Time?

    Hmmmm, I've had a million different ideas. Things ranging from spatial distortions to characters just being plucked from their timeline. :D

    I guess it all depends on where you want your time traveling characters to end up and how they encounter the past/future characters.

    But, since I?ve got to pick one, I?ll go with the wormhole. The wormhole is very handy, not only can it send your characters to vast distances, it can send them to different eras. Meaning, you can place your time traveling characters at any place or time.

    The problems with this method is they need a spaceship to use it. Unless they happen to be floating around out in space. They also have to be in space, so they don?t just appear on a planet. This can be a drawback if you want your characters to meet face to face right away.

    Of course, these may not be problems for certain stories. With your imagination you can do anything, even the impossible. It really depends on how, where, and when you want the story to go.

    Two possible ideas for time travel:

    -The Force (the thing that could work for everything)

    -Hyperspace (a PT ship makes a hyperspace jump, but there is a malfunction in the modivator, and instead of going across the galaxy, they reappear in the OT, or something like that.)

    I love the concept of time travel, and I've had a plot bunny nipping at my heels that involves it. Yes, time travel and a certain senator from Chandrila. (If confused, glance at bottom line of bio.) ;)

    I'm trying to figure out how to go about doing it, and I'm running up against walls. It takes a lot of planning to pull off a time travel story. That, and creativity.

    I agree that wormholes are awesome, but now that you mention the Force... Oh no! Plot bunnies! They're coming! [face_worried] :_|

    This is a good idea for a thread! Since I don't have a lot of time to spend reading SW fanfic anymore, I haven't had a chance to browse the boards for time travel stories. This index will get them all in one place! (And make my life easier.) :D

    When writing the beginning of my time travel fic, I payed very close attention to the way my characters got from post-NJO to ROTS time. I didn't want their travel to be an accident when travelling through hyperspace. I wanted them to know where they were going, how they were going to get there, why they had to go and what they had to do. Therefore, I fell back to using the Force and created a huge plot bunny as well as time travel theory.

    Although I have only written one time travel fic so far (and it's in progress), I have been planning to do others. I've considered a massive time machine or portals on weird planets. But so far, my favourite method is the Force. Unfortunately, that means that no non-Force-sensitives can time travel.

    Let's try to think of unusual methods of time travel, for the sake of it! ::grins::

    Yes, I see it jedi_master362, but I meant no time travel for non-Force sensitives when using my favourite method. Actually, I'm not too fond of hyperspace time travel, but that's just my opinion.

    Well, in Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home, in order to travel back to the 20th century the Enterprise sling-shots around a sun at maximum warp speed... I guess that's sort of similar to the hyperspace thing, only sling-shotting is intentional.

    And yes, I am a Star Trek fan as well. Please don't flame me! [face_worried]

    Preferably we could always get a longneck. :p

    And I have my timetravel fic, which Idrelle should be posting soon enough. To get 'em to go back I used hyperspace and a Vong created blackhole, see they get pulled in, but because of the hyperdrive they only hit the edges. Or something, I know it should be they would go forward, but whatever. :p

    Laura -- I think there are a lot of Star Wars fans who also love Star Trek out there. I've never really had the chance to experience Star Trek, So I can't say too much.

    Dev -- a Vong created blackhole... I think you're the only one so far who has done that!

    And now. A drum roll...

    We have the first fic in the index! Anakin & Anakin by Dev_Binks!

    Okay, I admit, I'm a little crazy right now. :p
