Rather than mourning a future that had not happened yet, he would rather work with all his might to prevent it from happening. [...] His aim was to fortify his home and his family so that they would never again be left vulnerable to greedy cultivators aiming for his genius. For that, he needed help.
He may be a genius, but he was not the cunning manipulative man they thought him to be.
No, that was not him.
He knew who was, though.
(Or: Wei Wuxian uses a powerful array to go back in time and builds a secret squad to prevent the misfortunes of the future.)
Wei Wuxian claims he found it. Jiang Cheng learns to trust his brother more than ever. Nie Huaisang is smarter than he looks and Lan Wangji will still pine even if Wei Wuxian knows they’re supposed to fall in love. At least the token is taking care of most problems.
Perhaps we can hope for a happier ending this time.
Wei Wuxian finds a strange artefact while he’s studying in Gusu. Apparently it shows the future.
(Started as a small project but got blown out of proportion)
Sarutobi Hiruzen was a smart man.
He was the third Hokage of the Hidden Leaf, star pupil of Senju Tobirama, hailed as the second God of Shinobi, and master of ten thousand jutsu. But, as he stares down at the result of the latest botched space-time jutsu, one taken from the Nidaime’s Forbidden Archive and modified by Hiruzen himself, he wonders how smart he really is to have something backfire this badly.
Because there is a tiny, angry, twelve-year-old Uchiha Madara with only one-tomoe sharingan, yelling and brandishing a kunai at him. And clinging to Madara’s arm is an equally tiny Senju Hashirama, shaking and alarmingly pale.
Hiruzen closes his eyes and sighs.
Truly a smart man.
OR: The one where Yamato gets his own rather unique genin team comprised of a ghost, a god, and an assassin, and the timeline will never be the same.

Kakashi looked at Orochimaru and thought, "maa, he needs therapy."
Or in which Kakashi suddenly found himself in a different dimension, de-aged, missing his sandals and decided that he would adopt Orochimaru at their first meeting, give Sakumo endless cuddles, be the friend Gai deserved and fuck the rules of time travel. Because what? He's freaking Hatake Kakashi, Hero of the Sharingan, Rokudaime Hokage of Konohagakure and he could do whatever he wants.
Or really, Kakashi just couldn't accept the fact that he's in a different dimension and chucked it up to time travel.

Itachi had done many things in his life that he wasn't proud of. No matter how one tried to justify it, he had undoubtedly committed unforgivable crimes in the name of what he thought was right. Even worse, he hadn't even been able to achieve what was truly important to him, ultimately making Sasuke's life worse rather than better. The only thing he could honestly say he had done right was to stop the Edo Tensei and show Sasuke the whole truth, but unfortunately that didn't make up for a lifetime of mistakes.
With that in mind, waking up as a child almost two decades in the past was somewhat of a surprise. After all, weren't there people who deserved a second chance much more than he did? Weren't there people who could do much more good than him?
It was he who was in this position now, however, which meant it was up to him to create a better future. One where his clan wouldn't be destroyed, Madara would be stopped, and, most importantly, Sasuke could be happy.
Itachi would make sure of that.
