** After being an exile for the entire series, the series finale has Garak finally able to stand on Cardassia without fear of being arrested or killed. [[spoiler:Only now that the Dominion has bombed the crap out of the planet and its government is in shambles, Cardassia is no longer the Cardassia he left, and when it does get back on its feet it will be a completely new Cardassia. Garak hates the irony of it.]]

* In ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'', Max feels this way after returning to her home town to attend a finishing school 5 years after moving away. Not only doesn't she know anyone too well (mainly staying in her room, and barely getting to know her dorm-mates), but she's too afraid to contact her former best friend Chloe (because of the guilt of failing to stay in contact after the death of her dad, who Max was also close to). As much of the game is spent showing her rediscovering the town and reconnecting with Chloe (now a rebellious, blue haired TheLaddette stoner, although just as energetic as she remembers) as investigating the supernatural happenings.

** The short story ''The Long Night of Waiting'': Two nineteenth century kids were accidentally swept into AnotherDimension through a CoolGate. They returned to find that [[RipVanWinkle roughly ten years]] had passed for every day they spent on the other side, and it was now the late twentieth century. They went back through the CoolGate, since it was closer to the life they were used to and they now had some friends there.
** ''Android at Arms'': Several important persons from various species and cultures awaken on a PrisonPlanet and learn that they have been kidnapped, and apparently kept as {{Human Popsicle}}s and replaced with {{Ridiculously Human Robot}}s. It is established right away, from the most recent dates each can remember, that for some of them many years have passed, and ''all'' of them were abducted in the midst of time-critical situations. The protagonist (one of the more recent abductees) returns home to find that years have passed, and that his double is now in charge.
