Fairy Tail Redux: Salamander's Time Traveling Escapades
(often shortened to
), is a
fanfic written by
Fox On Pie
. It starts off with
all of Natsu's friends being killed by Zeref,
but because of his
desire to die,
Zeref uses his magic to
send Natsu's memories to his two-year younger self
as a way to get Natsu strong enough to kill him and save his friends.
The story keeps the majority of the characters in character, including the ones
from other shows.
It is still ongoing with over 80 chapters.
This fanfiction contains examples of: Actor Allusion: Numerous characters occasionally address others by the name of characters with the same voice as them(because of the randomness of them, though, it often ends up being a Big Lipped Alligator Moment). The fourth chapter starts off with Lucy saying that something stinks and her eating a chocolate coronet. Jellal’s English and Japanese voice actors are referenced a lot, mainly with all the spells he uses. He even dressed as Ulquiorra when disguised as Cifer. Upon meeting Natsu, Wendy immediately comments on his voice being the same as Simon’s. Brain’s real name is Daz Love. In chapter 22, Wendy tricks the people from Fairy Tail into dressing up as characters who have the same voices. In his first appearance, Rogue dresses as Zack Fair as he appeared in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. In chapter 33, Wendy says "Uguu-!", which is Hilarious in Hindsight, since her being voiced by Brittney Karbowski wasn’t even revealed at that point. During the fight against Hades, Laxus shouts “Just who the hell do you think we are?!” One of Natsu’s spells is called Giga Flame Breaker. Zeref has a weapon called the Spear of Cassius, and one of his attacks has “Nagisa” in it. In the Halloween omake, Lucy, Gray, and Erza dress up as Haruhi, Ren Kouen, and Milly. It’s been noted that Erza and Beatrice sound alike, and the latter constantly uses this to irritate the former. Satan’s reaction to seeing blood is a clear reference to another character voiced by her seiyuu Beatrice later uses a Quincy technique against Erza. When Battler he asks if Gray was expecting comes back to life somehow, Daisuke Ono. In chapter 74, Mavis is dressed as Ai Enma, and Zeref is dressed as Ienzo. Alternate Universe: A given, since the story crosses Fairy Tail with , Rave Master , Animal Land , and the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, but it was actually created immediately after Natsu When They Cry and Zeref’s Mental Time Travel. Anyone Can Die: As of writing this, the characters who have died are Hoteye, Midnight, Azuma, Wendy, Dan, Erza, Jellal, and Battler. Wendy and Battler, though, were revived through Unexplained Recovery, and Erza and Jellal came back thanks Beatrice’s healing. Azuma is sort of back, as well, due to his consciousness regenerating inside of Wendy. Ars Goetia: One of the five ruling factions of the Makai. Ascended Meme: Battler’s last name is Bauer, Beatrice uses small bombs... pretty much everything about the characters, really. Umineko Backstory: Many characters with otherwise vague pasts are given this, like Jellal, Brain, and Wendy. Badass Army: The Symphonia Wizard Saints are this, especially with their new editions of Natsu and Erza. Bat Deduction: Natsu uses this to locate Mavis’ grave. Virgilia later does this to figure out how Elfman and Lisanna started winning. Batman Gambit: Erza and Beatrice both use these against one another. Bland-Name Product: Wc Donald’s apparently exists. Blood from the Mouth: Happens to many characters. Bloodier and Gorier: Has been getting like this ever since the Tenrou Island arc. Breaking the Fellowship: Natsu, Zeref, and Mavis all used to be best friends, but after Mavis' death, Natsu and Zeref became enemies. Breaking the Fourth Wall: Bernkastel and Lambdadelta apparently have the ability to do this. Cat Fight: Wendy and Minerva have one in chapter 55. Character Overlap: The story takes place in the world of Fairy Tail, but that doesn’t stop its characters from interacting with characters from , Animal Land , the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series, and, in one chapter, When They Cry ZEXAL. Church of Happyology: Zentopia. Cloak & Dagger: Sen’ya Ichiya is basically the story’s FBI or CIA Clock Roaches: It already happened, since it takes place in the same world as Rave Master. In chapter 48, Zeref says that what happened in Rave Master won’t happen again because the Time Travel he used involved the One Magic, which, apparently, comes from Endless. Compilation Movie: An in-universe example. After the Tenrou Island arc, Fuyu apparently took all of the videotaped scenes and put them together into a movie. Courtroom Episode: Chapter 10. Curb-Stomp Battle: Basically all of Natsu’s one-on-one fights before chapter 48. There are other examples, but the best is probably the Bloody Gulls very easily defeating Fairy Tail in their first two confrontations, especially applied with Beatrice, since she kills Erza and Jellal. Cycle of Revenge: Averted. Meredy initially tries to kill Erza to get revenge on Jellal for beating up Ultear and playing a part in her arrest, but Erza stops her from doing that, and she eventually gives up her revenge and joins Fairy Tail. Dance Party Ending: The ending to the Infinity Clock arc. Dare to Be Badass: Mavis gives this to Natsu in chapter 49.
Mavis: “Ignore your powerlessness. Ignore your pain. Push all negativity aside and climb past your limits. Reach deep inside of yourself and muster out every last drop of power and win this fight! Don't let everyone's hopes be wasted! Honor their wishes and emerge victorious!”
Deus ex Machina: The mysterious glow making Baal move slowly in chapter 30. It’s later revealed to be a result of Zeref’s magic being absorbed by Natsu. Wendy using Dragon Force against Azuma, and Bernkastel bringing her back to life. Gray’s One-Winged Angel form. Doorstopper: At over 70 chapters and 200,000 words, the story is definitely becoming this. Double Entendre: Asmodeus makes many of these towards Jellal. Facepalm: Done on numerous occasions. Five-Bad Band: In the Infinity Clock Arc: Follow the Leader: The basic plot for the first 50 chapters is basically the same as the plotline for Time is the Path to Strength, a Fairy Tail Time Travel fic first published in 2011. Forgotten First Meeting: Natsu doesn’t remember meeting Fuyu as a kid. Nor did he remember meeting Zeref and Mavis. Fusion Dance: Brain and Zero combine back into their original persona of Daz Love. Go Karting with Bowser: At the end of the Infinity Clock arc, the good guys and bad guys have a party to celebrate the end of it. The only reason Bloody Gulls wasn't being arrested was because of The Chairman. Gratuitous English: A lot of the characters use this. Gratuitous Japanese: A lot of the characters’ attacks use this. Halloween Episode: One of the omakes. Hand Wave: Fox, one of the author’s two Author Avatars, tries to do this when the logic of the Crossover is questioned, but the other one, Pie, doesn’t accept it, so it becomes subverted, and Fox declares them to be Mutually Fictional. Happy Flashback: Natsu has one in chapter 74 to when he first met Zeref and Mavis. Inaction Sequence: After Natsu implies that he’ll kill the Chairman for not pardoning Jellal, they just stare at each other for twenty minutes. Despite the threat, however, Jellal gets pardoned. Infinity +1 Armanents: The Tokkyū Shinsei Buki(Über Divine Weapons) Informed Ability: The Red Key of Judgement and Blue Key of Reflection are said to allow the user to destroy a person mentally, but that ability has never been shown. Invisible Backup Band: When Laxus sings in chapter 47. Happens again in chapter 68 with Erika. Involuntary Group Split: Happens in the Oracion Seis arc when the team’s airship is attacked. It's Personal: Wendy’s reason for fighting Brain, Jellal’s reason for fighting Hades, and Meredy’s reason for fighting Eva-Beatrice. Joker Jury: The jury for Jellal’s trial was made up of nine clones of the Chairman, and the jury for Mira’s trial was the Ars Goetia. In both cases, the defendant was going to be declared guilty. Jury of the Damned: The Ars Goetia in chapter 60. Kangaroo Court: Jellal’s trial in chapter 10, and Mira’s trial in chapter 60, though both end up subverted. Kinda Busy Here: Happens to Jellal and Erza in the Valentine’s Day chapter, and again when Eva-Beatrice is fighting Meredy. Language Of Truth: The Bold Truth. Eva-Beatrice says that it’s supposed to be red, but certain “complications”(the site’s inability to show colored text) make it bold. Last Villain Stand: Hades decides to have this after his Villainous Breakdown. Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Eva-Beatrice does this when she talks about how the Bold Truth and Underlined Truth are supposed to be red and blue, respectively. Lemony Narrator: The narration is usually serious, but it occasionally falls into this, like in chapter 56, when the narrator tried to convince the reader that Erza, Jellal, Wendy, and Meredy were all out on a job. Let Us Never Speak of This Again: How Natsu and co. react to the identity of the White Pixie. Lighthearted Rematch: Natsu and Gajeel have this in chapter 11. Long Title Make Room For The New Plot: The Tower of Heaven arc is taken care of in basically a chapter and a half so the characters can make Ultear pay for brainwashing Jellal and get the man on their side. They succeed. Happens again in the Return to Pergrande arc as a result of his loss of interest. Make Sure He's Dead: Many characters do this by sniffing the air around someone’s butt. Massive Multiplayer Crossover: As of chapter 40, the story is one with Fairy Tail, , Rave Master , Animal Land , and the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series. When They Cry Mental Time Travel: Happened to Natsu and Zeref. Mission Briefing: Done several times, like when Natsu tells his friends and Simon’s group how they’ll take down Jellal. Erika also has one with Fairy Tail and the Eiserne Jungfrau right before they find the pieces of the Infinity Clock. Mistaken for Spies: Erza initially suspects Erika’s group of being spies, and Erika later suspects Wendy of being a spy. The Multiverse: Certain dialogues and pieces of narration imply that one exists. Mutually Fictional: The author’s reason for how Fairy Tail can be crossed with four franchises and still have them exist as stories. Mythology Gag In chapter 8, Ooishi and Akasaka both reference things they’ve done in their series. Them playing mahjong might also be this, since the two often played the game together. Chapter 19 wouldn’t be the first time Erza was on top of Jellal with a sword at his throat. Wendy’s fight against Sting and Rogue plays out nearly the same as Natsu and Gajeel’s fight against, except for the fact that she loses. In chapter 28, Jellal and Erza Knightwalker say the same thing each Erza said in Fairy Tail. Natsu and Gajeel’s fight against Baal Miran Big is done the same as it was in Animal Land, including the Unstoppable Rage. Wendy wouldn't be the first Dragon Slayer who achieved Dragon Force thanks to Jellal. Wendy’s fight against Azuma has numerous references to Joseph’s confrontations against the Pillar Men. Bernkastel's last line in chapter 40 is nearly the same as her last line in Legend of the Golden Witch. Her interaction with Wendy might also serve to be one since, in another story by the same author, the Fairy Tail characters were placed in the world of , and Umineko Wendy was Bernkastel. The bedroom Bernkastel and Lambdadelta are shown in in chapters 50 and 55 is the same one they are often in in . Umineko The Halloween omake is the same as the first chapter of Rave Master with the Jiggle Butt Gang. Beatrice often has conversations with people named Shannon, Kanon, Lion, and Clair, a clear reference to theory that all five of those people are actually the same person. Many of the Bloody Gulls' moves are taken from the fighting game. Umineko Beatrice’s second fight against Erza is the same as her fight against Virgilia, including the Batman Gambit that resulted in her victory. Right before Battler and Erika fight, they say what they said to each other in Twilight of the Golden Witch. Bernkastel, in chapter 66, threatens to turn Wendy into a hamburger. This story wouldn’t be the first time Erika wore a pirate hat. The scene where Elfman and Lisanna are attacked by goats is the same as the scene when Beatrice is attacked by goats in End of the Golden Witch. Bernkastel kills Michelle in the same manner that She also put on a pose that would make she kills Clair. Hirohiko Araki jealous. Chapter 73 really wouldn’t be the first time Battler came back from being a pile of meat. Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Natsu essentially does this by getting Ultear arrested, effectively ruining any chance of her having a Heel-Face Turn. No Dead Body Poops: Averted in that everyone in the story always sees if someone crapped their pants to determine whether or not they died. No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Dine: For whatever reason, Bernkastel feeds Natsu dinner before their fight. Noodle Incident: Numerous ones not worth listing, but probably the biggest one is Natsu and Happy’s time in Mildea. It’s been stated that Natsu became extremely powerful after his time spent there, but it’s currently unknown what actually happened. No One Could Survive That: Hades gets a giant hole in his body and gets caught in an explosion, and yet he still doesn’t die. Lampshaded by Gray.
Gray: "A scratch? There's a giant hole in his body!"
Not Worth Killing: Wendy feels this in regards to Brain. An Offer You Can't Refuse: Brain has Jellal betray Fairy Tail under the threat of killing Erza’s parents if he doesn’t. Official Couple: Juvia and Lyon are dating and Erza and Jellal are married. Oh Crap: Natsu’s reaction to the Chairman showing up in chapter 9. 108: Absoliutus Teisingumas is the 108th Chairman of the Magic Council. Only I Can Kill Him: Natsu feels this in regards to Zeref. He also says this to Gray on account of being Genre Savvy when Gray tries to fight Battler, but it’s subverted when Gray manages to win. Opt Out: Featherine doesn’t fight anymore after she abandons her battle against Natsu. Panty Shot: Wendy does this to Rogue to get an advantage during their fight. Precision F-Strike: On occasion. Reference Overdosed: Seems to be one almost every chapter. See Shout-Out below. Retcon: As of chapter 73, Meredy was never in a relationship with Zancrow. Ripple-Effect-Proof Memory: Natsu and Zeref have this. The Bloody Gulls guild seems to have this, as well. R-Rated Opening: Starts with all of Natsu’s friends dead. Running Gag: Gray blasting Natsu with ice when he tries to talk about his crush on Erza. This stopped, though, when Erza and Jellal got married. Self-Deprecation: Fox and Pie call chapter 51 the worst chapter ever. Set Right What Once Went Wrong Ship Sinking: The popular ship of Gruvia is sunk in chapter 7 when Juvia and Lyon become a couple. Ship Tease: Natsu with Fuyu, Gray with Lucy, Erika with Dlanor, and Wendy with Sting, Rogue, and Meredy. Shout-Out: Oh, so many. Show Within a Show: Fairy Channel. Sorting Algorithm of Evil: Ultear->Brain->Faust->Hades-> Zeref->Battler->Bernkastel->Hanyu Strong Family Resemblance: The narration of chapter 20 notes how Wendy looks just like her mother. Sweat Drop: Used on many occasions. Take That: A good portion of the Edolas arc is spent doing this to its canonical version. The Infinity Clock arc also takes a jab at Happyology. A stab is taken at Hiro Mashima in chapter 65 in regards to Ultear’s Heroic Sacrifice. Take That, Audience!: Occasionally calls the readers stupid because of how they’ve allowed an extremely large amount of Fairy Tail stories to be about Lucy being kicked out of the guild to make room for Lisanna and coming back as a Mary Sue. Talking Is a Free Action: Happens a lot. Team Hand Stack: Natsu and his friends do it every now and then. The Reveal: Brain was responsible for orphaning Wendy. The One Magic, and, by extension, all magic, comes from Endless. Time Bomb: One is placed on Erza’s parents, and another is placed on Wendy. Title Drop: In chapter 50. Tomato Surprise Brain is responsible for orphaning Wendy. Natsu, Zeref, and Mavis were all once friends. Torches and Pitchforks: Buccellati led a mob of people holding such items to kill Wendy. Tournament Arc: The X785 Grand Magic Games True Companions: The Fairy Tail guild, obviously, but also Natsu, Mavis, and Zeref. Tunnel Of Foreshadowing: Chapter 35 gives us Mavis. Unfamiliar Ceiling: Natsu does this in chapter 2. Unusually Uninteresting Sight: No one except the Chairman seemed to care about Natsu saying that he and Zeref used to be friends Valentines Day Episode: Chapter 55. Virtual Soundtrack: According to the narration at various parts from the Infinity Clock arc onwards( lampshaded by Lucy when she says that music doesn’t just start playing randomly at certain points in time). We All Live in America: Lampshaded in chapter 68.
Meredy: "We live in an English-speaking country, yet we write everything in Japanese! Can someone explain that, please?"
WHAM Episode: Chapter 9, The whole Tower of Heaven plot is destroyed instantly by In the very next chapter, Natsu, and Ultear is arrested. Jellal joins Fairy Tail, but despite Natsu’s intervention, Grimoire Heart gets one of the keys. Chapter 11, Natsu and Erza become Wizard Saints.

The Worf Effect: Fairy Tail gets this when fighting the Bloody Gulls World of Ham: A given, since the story combines Fairy Tail with two very hammy worlds. Xanatos Gambit: Meredy executes one against Erza in that no matter what she decides to do, Jellal will suffer over the fact that Erza dies. Erza, however, decides to Take a Third Option. You Mean X Mas: Christmas still exists, but most of the characters apparently celebrate Festivus.
