Cutlisted trope. Also, it wouldn't fit in this index anyways.

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. ----
