Let's also point out that buried in the plot of "The Invisible Boy" (1957) is a time-travel story. And to the future, not the usual past! The AI machine prognosticated that three centuries in the future, someone would retrieve an unstoppable robot from the Krell homeworld. It caused one of its keeper to build a time machine and retrieve the robot, bringing it back to the 21st century, as its agent in the world.

Excerpt from Helipads in Heaven:
If you knew her, you’d know that Goose was the most interesting character Valley Park Preparatory School had the misfortune of meeting. She was the girl who halted during physical education classes to stare skyward at helicopters, hawks—anything to float her mind away from the reality she lived in. She was the girl who scribbled routinely in her notebooks and in the crevices of her math assignments, who wore an eccentric bomber jacket decorated with patches even when the weather was too warm, but most of all, whether her teachers considered it to be something so precious or not, she was the girl who dared to dream.

I honestly don’t fully grasp linear time. I got together with some old college friends from the ‘90s. We hadn’t all been together in decades. I *know* time has passed as we’ve raised kids and they’ve gotten older, grayer, wider. ;-)

The same chemistry was there. I don’t *feel* older. I’m healthier both physically and mentally than I have been in over 20 years.

It felt like I stumbled back through the wardrobe returning as a twenty-something who had entered it so many years ago.

In "Santo in the Treasure of Dracula," a Mexican wrestler uses a time machine to try to find out where Dracula buried his treasure, setting off a chain of events that resurrects Dracula.

Strip out the silliness, and there's a plot you can use in a #TimeTravel #TTRPG -- a slightly shady time traveler who isn't trying to change history, just collecting *information* that's profitable in the present. Until it goes wrong, of course, and PCs have to save the day.

That's the problem.

Next time, I would build the time machine out of a toilet. Less maintenance costs and the time flush would flow better. And when the flush tank is modified, an additional #bucket is no longer needed.

Unfortunately, I don't have time to build it.

I had tried it before with a time tub. But it takes too long to fill up and the time flush doesn't run fast enough. Even if there was enough space for the technical components.

Deranged time travel idea:

There is the Past and the Present, there is no Future

The Present is in constant motion, the Past is in constant growth

Time is not a dimension, there is only entropy--the passage of energy

The point the traveller returns to becomes the Present, with everything and everyone past it ceasing to exist

Only the traveller is preserved, memory and all

@nitin Assuming no paradoxes, these two time-travel scenarios seem to have fundamentally different consequences:

1. Person A travels back in time and kills someone's ancestor. Person B *later* travels back in time and ensures the ancestor is safe, essentially undoing A's action.

2. Person X travels back in time and prevents the invention of time travel. Person Y would later *not* be able to undo Person X's action because there's no more time travel.

I've been watching "The Wild, Wild West", which I remembered as being mostly adventure #Western with some #SciFi and a touch of #steampunk. Powerful explosives, robots, torpedoes, earthquake machines. I recalled the episode where Dr Loveless trapped West in a painting, but it turns out there's a lot more stuff irreconcilable to science that I'd forgotten, like a shrinking potion. Still viewed in a scientific light, however.¹

But I'm halfway through the second season, and have encountered two episodes that were more #fantasy. One a #HauntedHouse with some #TimeTravel, the other time travel by psychic power. I wonder how many more episodes are on the F end of #SFF?

The series is on #PlutoTV, BTW. #ClassicTV #VintageTV #ScienceFiction

Can you ID this story?

I remember reading a sci-fi short when I was growing up about military scientists who create a computer.

As it is completed, a mysterious “alien” craft appears and starts threatening the computer.

Short story short, it turns out this is the computer itself that has time-travelled from the future to destroy itself, for reasons I can’t recall.

I’ve searched for the story a few times, including just now, and drawn a blank.

September 12, 2023 - Day 255 - NewPlay Review
Total NewPlays: 276

Game: The Forgotten City

Platform: Steam
Release Date: Jul 28, 2021
Library Date: Sep 12, 2023
Unplayed: 0d
Playtime: 3h42m

The Forgotten City is a first-person narrative-driven adventure involving time loops, and an ancient Roman city.

It's the third game in this month's Humble Bundle, and if you're a fan of narrative adventures (eg. Firewatch) or time travel gameplay, this might be the game for you.

It was a bit slow at first; I was 10 minutes in, and I was thinking it wasn't really a game for me.

...and that was three and a half hours ago.

The graphics are pretty good, the sound design is great, but the narrative is excellent.

However, I'm not going to write a longer review. The problem with this game, and it's highlighted upfront by the devs is that to say too much about it spoils the game for those who haven't played it.

Thus, please consider my three and three quarter hours of straight playtime, and having reached one of four endings my way of saying that The Forgotten City is:

5: Excellent

Forgot to say I’m a long-term #DoctorWho fan, since watching the first episode of The Ribos Operation in 1978 at a very young age. Favourite Doctor #DavidTennant then #TomBaker and #PaulMcGann (thanks #BigFinish for that last). Favourite companion #SarahJaneSmith. Favourite Classic Who story City of Death, and favourite New Who The Empty Child. I’m not a huge #scifi fan, not keen on hard scifi. But as a #storytelling engine Who works brilliantly. Historian me loves the #timeTravel. #introduction

Now let me tell you why the #DS9 episode Time's Orphan is bullshit:

So Molly goes #BackInTime, but when they retrieve her, she's ten years older.

They think about aiming for an earlier section of time to retrieve the original 8-year-old Molly, but Keiko says: "But this older Molly will cease to exist."

But by doing nothing, they are leaving their daughter alone for ten years.

And they are happy to condemn their daughter to that?

#Recommendations please:

Stories...

(mainly TV series available on #AmazonPrime or #Netflix, but open to #movies & #books too)

... that are rooted in and do something interesting with #TimeTravel.

Note: Doctor Who is not, for the most part, about time travel. Time travel is merely a contrivance to allow for a breadth of stories, so Who doesn't count here (though I could probably think of some specific episodes that do something interesting with time travel if I put my mind to it).
The same is true of Quantum Leap.
I guess The Time Traveler's Wife (Niffenegger) would fit to a degree, but it's not quite as time travel focused as I'm looking for.

Essentially, if I get introduced to some decent stories I'll be happy.

#TMNT #Leo #Timetravel #Moses #Corcodiles

Teeth gritted, Leo lunges through the air towards his opponent, a Predator/Darth Vader looking cyborg type. With a swipe of his sword Leo takes his enemy's right hand off, sending it spinning above them, still holding its futuristic ray gun. Ancient Japanese sword skills beats bleeding edge future gunmanship. 

"My name's Leonardo.

I've always walked the straight and narrow. I've always believed that A leads to B. Ive always had a certain clarity that's enabled me to see the consequences of my actions. It's been my path towards seeking truth, beauty and, at times, perfection.

It's the simple philosophy behind my ninjitsu training. Every goal is a point in time and all training is the straight line that leads to a given point: the goal.

It's the way I approach a battler, the foundation to my strategies, the way I've lived my life. Clarity, goals, straight lines, known outcomes. No confusion.

Except for that one time. Or was it FOUR times?

The skipping, folding, looping arc of confusion, of nonlinear time...I still don't know how to adequately view it. let alone explain it. But I'll try...

Let me tell you a story..."

There's a certain irony to the void being blue and how this helps Leo (in a red mask, no less) completely pop. I like it. Good colours on the cyborg guy too, helps Leo stand out even more while not messing with Dwyer's lovely shadows.

Yesterday I found out how to stay symmetrical with the #metaballs in #b3d #blender . You make a linked duplicated with a negative scale on one axis and then edit the original. Please send this message to me 2 years ago. #timetravel

It's good to have a project you're working on for yourself. And learning to write better is a useful skill.

If you're looking for help with writing genre stories, the podcast writingexcuses.com has been enormously helpful to me. They have some episodes specifically about #TimeTravel.
Some years ago I was talking to Brandon Sanderson at a con, and he told me about the podcast he was starting. Their tag line is "Fifteen minutes long, because you're in a hurry, and we're not that smart"
