So this is a sister thread/ continuation of the Sailor Moon Loops thread over on thefanfictionforum.net The base Time Loops idea is something Innortal came up with, and here's the premise as copy/pasted from Saphroneth's MLP Time Loops Thread; Loop mechanics (general): One person in a Loop, often the main character, is an Anchor. They are the person who first starts time looping. There is always at least one Anchor present in a given Time Loop snippet, though it may not be the local one. The standard pattern for a loop is that the Anchor (and whoever else is Looping there) come to awareness in a loop at a particular point in the story. From there, events will play out as influenced by the Loopers present, acting with the benefit of their foreknowledge, until either a predetermined end point is reached or all the Loopers have copped it. To be Awake is to be aware of the time loops (that is, to have gone back in time this time.) The Anchor is the only character guaranteed to be Awake. Even after others have started looping, it is mostly random as to whether they will be Awake this particular loop. Crossovers, fusions, and alternate pasts can also take place. It is perfectly possible, for example, to have the characters Awaken into a loop which conforms to a fanfic universe rather than reality. Loops do not have to be in chronological order, but it is strongly preferred that they not require a mutually contradictory order (where A must be before B and B must be before A.) Just about every Looper is very, very stir crazy. Here are the specifics of the Sailor Moon Loops, as I understand them: Usagi Tsukino and Setsuna Meioh are the Co-Anchors. The Loop generally begins the morning Usagi was originally found by Luna. So far, there doesn't seem to be a natural end to the Loop. The Sailor Scouts seem to be Awake more often than not. Have at.
