* ''Series/{{Farscape}}''. Lampshaded in "Different Destinations". However every attempt by John Crichton to nudge events back the way they were only makes things worse, and he has to settle for a CloseEnoughTimeline in which a devastating war is averted but a massacre of innocent civilians takes place.

->'''Harvey:''' All modern research points to the elasticity of time, rather than a brittle framework.
->'''Crichton:''' Can it be corrected?
->'''Harvey:''' If nudged closely enough to course, events have a way of restructuring themselves. If the participants are the same, the venue's the same, the motivation's the same, then well: the outcome is likely to be the same.

*''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'':
** In a variation, the [[spoiler:second season finale is about the rewriting of reality itself, time being rather easy to change in the Arrowverse. [[InSeriesNickname The Legion of Doom]] obtains the [[PublicDomainArtifact Spear of Destiny]] and is able to rewrite reality, leaving only Reverse-Flash, Captain Cold, Malcolm Merlyn, and Mick Rory aware of the change. It is resolved when the Legends get their memories back and [[MindScrew travel back in time to prevent the changing of reality, because it didn't happen until the year 2017.]]]]

* In "Empty Graves", part of the ''Fanfic/SorrowfulAndImmaculateHearts'' series, Martha Kent has to deal with a succession of time-traveling assassins attempting to kill Clark Kent while he's still young and relatively defenseless. Each time traveler is from a different future which ceases to exist as a result of their actions -- for instance, one of the first is from a future where Jonathan and Martha kept Clark isolated on the farm for fear of what might happen if his origins were discovered, with the result that he grew up emotionally isolated from humanity and became a tyrannical overlord; having seen how that will turn out, Martha decides to risk letting Clark go to school and make friends, and that future is averted. After several such adjustments, the final time-traveling villain is from the familiar-to-the-reader timeline in which Clark grows up to become Franchise/{{Superman}}.
