helena mattsonvs kristanna loken[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_einstein Albert Einstein]] amazed the world in 1905 when he published his paper on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_relativity special relativity]], which predicted - among other things - that time was, indeed, relative.

The writers, however, were left unimpressed, because they have been familiar with a similar principle for ages untold: for you see, it is a trivial matter to derive from the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality that - just as things happen because the plot damn well needs them to - they also happen ''when'' it is convenient for the story.

This phenomenon is known as PlotTime, and it crops up in a lot of {{Trope}}s, such as:
----
[[index]]
* ComicBookTime
* ConversationCut
* FrozenInTime
* InactionSequence
* JustInTime
* PlotDetour
* RealTime
* RefugeeFromTime
* RidiculouslyFastConstruction
* SneezeCut
* {{SORAS}}
* TalkingIsAFreeAction
* TimeSkip
* TransformationAtTheSpeedOfPlot
* TransformationSequence
* TravelingAtTheSpeedOfPlot
* VideoGameTime
* WebcomicTime
[[/index]]
----

Not to be confused with TimeTravelTropes, though the two do frequently cooperate. Compare TwentyFourHourTropeClock, for how times are used in plots.
