Added DiffLines:

*** In ''Ghosts of the Past'', it gains a more serious significance when [[spoiler: Maddie/Rachel]] feels an affinity to it and pinches it, whereupon it starts heating up.


Added DiffLines:

** Harry's letter from the future has a few, though mostly of lighter things - [[spoiler: Pepper's pregnancy]], for instance - and is quite vague since it's designed to avoid a paradox. However, Fury manages to deduce the existence of [[spoiler: Maddie Pryor/Rachel Grey]] from it, with the resultant OhCrap reaction.
** Trelawney's second prophecy, rather altered from canon, is littered with them, directly (if obscurely, through metaphor) referencing Voldemort, Selene, [[spoiler: Clark Kent]], [[spoiler: Maddie Pryor/Rachel Grey]], the Red Room, Doctor Nathaniel Essex a.k.a. Sinister, and possibly [[spoiler: the Dark Phoenix]]. There are others, which, by chapter 9 of ''Ghosts of the Past'', remain unrevealed.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has quite a few, to put it mildly.
** Draco Malfoy's sudden change in attitude? It's because of [[spoiler: a voice in his head]] that doesn't appear on-screen past chapter 3, being mentioned once in chapter 21, and that's about it. Then, ''four years later'', in chapter 7 of the sequel, ''Ghosts of the Past'', it pops up again as a discussed plot point as Harry, Carol and Jean-Paul figure out that there's something up and make a good stab at what it is.
** The Shadow Initiative, mentioned once, in passing, in chapter 14. It crops up again in chapter 75, as a key part of Fury's counter-strategy to HYDRA.
** Mentions of Harry's association with fire and affinity for [[spoiler: phoenix feathers and other Phoenix related artefacts]], as well as the fact that he takes very heavily after his mother in personality, turn out to foreshadow [[spoiler: that Lily merged with the Phoenix and the protection on Harry comes from the entity in question.]]
** Harry's blessing from Wanda is mentioned a couple of times as warping reality around him ever so slightly, to ensure that he'll always have back up. Strange explains in chapter 48 that it was intended to help Harry through the trials to come. In chapter 77, however, it's revealed that it's also [[spoiler: part of his plan to defeat Chthon, as once the Darkhold is unleashed, circumstances and that blessing make Harry 'the fulcrum on which all worlds turn', making him uniquely able to undo what Chthon has done.]]
** On a lighter note, Odin's [[spoiler: phoenix feather]], which alludes to Harry's [[spoiler: connection to the Phoenix]], pops up again in chapter 79, when Odin has it covered in gold and gives it to Harry, who wears it constantly afterwards.
** Trelawney's Tarot reading in chapter 66 is littered with examples of this trope, with every single one of the ten cards pointing to something that will happen. By chapter 7 of ''Ghosts of the Past'', all of them except possibly 'Justice' and an aspect of 'the Star' have come to pass.

* ''FanFic/WithThisRing'':
** Scott was to recharge his ring despite the ban from the Guardians to help the Green Lanterns deal with [[spoiler: Paulphidian]]. He and the Lanterns get curb-stomped before they could stop them.

** Paul jokes that he's not going anywhere the Greek Pantheon after Father Mattias makes a crack about their unreliability compared to Yahweh. He not only picks Eris, the Greek Goddess of Chaos as a his patron god during his visit to Thymyscira but meets Eris and Hera in person. [[spoiler: And successfully convinces Hera to divorce Zeus.]]

* In ''FanFic/RobbReturns''' chapter 63, [[spoiler: Jon manages to make a deep cut into Lysa's arm as she attacks him.]] Eleven chapters later, [[spoiler: the cut has festered and corrupted, forcing Lysa's men to pull into the closest keep - which turns out to be Bronn's.]]
** Before Littlefinger gets arrested in chapter 35, he thinks of a letter he managed to send just in time for this case. [[spoiler: Chapter 77 shows that the letter was sent to Lysa Arryn, telling her about Cersei and Jaime's incest and their children, and also that Lord Arryn was lying about his crimes and plotting to kill him, which led to Lysa's attack against Jon.]]

* FalloutEquestria has an armory's worth.
