The simplest form of this, [[SimultaneousArcs covering the same time frame from different perspectives,]] is equivalent to a RashomonPlot. One way of doing this is to have a "present" storyline going on as the "past" occasionally pops up and mixes things around, as a variation of HowWeGotHere. Or a character spends time using a WholeEpisodeFlashback as a FramingDevice. While they are related, there is still a dividing line as one of those storylines has to still be jumbled chronologically.

* In ''Podcast/AliceIsntDead,'' the {{Narrator}}'s audio diary entries appear disorganized and recorded over in places, with each switch signaled by the static of her CB radio. This results in MoodWhiplash when the recording abruptly shifts from her fearful recounting of terrible events to pleasant, philosophical musings on the scenery, then back again.

Additionally, the [[AlternateContinuity alternate timeline]] theory was confirmed as well.
