Sometimes the inverse is seen, where it's not possible to take anything from the past back to the future. (Sometimes this is justified by the claim that, for the object, the future doesn't exist yet.) Since it's otherwise not much of a dramatic limitation, this version usually only comes up in stories where a time-traveler is trying to save something (or some''one'') from being destroyed in the past.

[Folder: Fan Works]] * In Fanfic/TheInfiniteLoops, carrying things across the Loops requires either that the item be soul-bonded to a Looper (usually occurs with powerful magical artifacts), or that it be stored in a [[{{Hammerspace}} Subspace Pocket]] at the time the Loop resets. It is technically possible (DependingOnTheWriter anyway) to put living beings into a Pocket, but this is generally discouraged for obvious ethical reasons.

* In SpiderRobinson's ''TimePressure'', the time traveler arrives naked (except for her computer headband thing) and ''bald'' because of the limitations of the time machine. Time travel in some of the author's other books has similar limitations, such as an inability to bring living and nonliving things at the same time.

* In the movie ''Film/{{Timeline}}'', the time travelers deliberate do not to bring anything modern back because they don't want to pollute the timeline. [[spoiler:Except for one bloody idiot, whose insistence on bringing along a few grenades screws everyone when he accidentally blows up the transfer point.]] In the original book, they bring [[TranslatorMicrobes translator earpieces]] along, but no other modern technology.

[[folder: Web Comics]] * Discussed in ''WebComic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'': early on, the squad thought it was true, then they noticed that Commander Badass's body hair didn't disappear. When they find out that animal hair ''can'' apparently time travel safely, they started demanding to the scientists that they get clothes. The scientists, annoyed that the squad was back-sassing them, gave them embarrassing Christmas onesies made of wool. [[/folder]]
