Welp, here it is, since I started the topic in the first place. I'm as yet unsure how far this will even go, and with all my other stories I may not contribute as often as say, Saphroneth does with his "My Little Pony" loop series, but the thread is here for anyone who's interested. Loop mechanics (general) (as explained by Saphroneth): 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. Loop Specifics: These are just the basics, as we're at the beginning of a project with an uncertain future. As Yu-Gi-Oh! has four separate series, each with its own protagonist, each series has it's own set of loops. Since each series is also both an anime and a manga, with differences between the two continuities, the looping characters will shift between mangaverse and animeverse at random. The anchors for each series are as follows: YGO-DM: Yugi and Yami (co-anchors. Yes, this does happen. I've seen it around.) YGO-GX: Jaden. YGO-5D's: Yusei. YGO-Zexal: Yuma and Astral (co-anchors again). That's all I got for now, but it's a start! Note: If you want me to eventually post these on my fanfiction account, please keep them at a T-rating or below if you can manage it. I will not post M-rated content on my archive, and I'd rather the course language at the very least was kept to a minimum, although since every contributor will be given credit for the loops they write, I can hardly take the blame for swearing I didn't write myself. Forgive me if I sound like a prude, but one can write good fic without swearing in it if one tries. I've seen many good examples of this.
