Chapter Zero

Chapter Text

Lessons in time travel: chapter zero.

Who we were does not dictate who we will be.

But often, it’s a pretty good indication.

Time travel does not give one the opportunity to change oneself.

But rather, to eradicate oneself, and allow something else to form in the wake of what once was.

And in this is a sort of grace.

Or madness.

Because if we don’t believe in change…

 … then we don’t believe in time.









This is the end.

The beginning.

The end.

What it all means is not for us to know.

It is for history to decide.

All we can do is play the parts as written.











All we can know is ourselves.
