** ''The Bible'' also tends to record prophesies as though the future events they describe have already happened.

* In H.G. Wells "The Time Machine" the narrator faces this problem of where someone is/was/will be. When the (unnamed) Time Traveler disappears at the end the narrator wonders if he went into the past or future and says "He may even now (if I may use that term) be wandering on a prehistoric reef"

* ''Fanfic/DoingItRightThisTime'': [[http://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/threads/working-title-doing-it-right-this-time-evangelion-extremely-rough-draft.14636/ In the initial draft]] Asuka ran into this trouble while talking to Shinji about the events of the original timeline: -->''"Months of treating you like crap... and you still wanted me." She sat down on the bench beside him. "And I wanted you. Couldn't admit it to myself, but I did. Do. Whatever fucking tense I should be using."''

* A frequent out-of-universe problem when trying to describe events crossing ''CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', due to the major differences in how the retcon affected different characters and different past events. A few characters were rebooted as completely new characters (Wonder Woman), some were made so that they had been around before the Crisis, but their personalities and histories suddenly had always been very different from what all previous comics portrayed (Superman), and some had basically the same history and memory that they had had before the Crisis (TheFlash, GreenLantern). Therefore, there's both the reader's perception of what "Pre-Crisis" and "PostCrisis" means (Pre-Crisis: [[SilverAge Silver-]] and UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}}, PostCrisis: [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks Dark-]] and Modern Age), and there's the characters' perception of what "Pre Crisis" and "Post Crisis" means (basically: Pre Crisis: Before [[TheFlash Barry]] died, Post Crisis: after Barry died). This leads to descriptions like "After the Crisis, Batman changed so that he had been dark and brooding both before and after Barry died."\\
