Is this supposed to be a fanfic recs page or just a listing, because of lot of these are very unprofessional for listings, clearly written like recs.

What about Life is Strange? Her ability to look at photographs is similar to Evan's power in Butterfly Effect.

Hey. For reference, these used to be divided between Fanfic and Canon metafolders. This is awesome for new tropes in need of canon examples, but I think Film, TV and Literature have grown enough that splitting works well.

  • The Stargate SG-1 fanfiction To Return The Way I Was Before twists this by giving Daniel Jackson amnesia, making him forget everything that has happened since a particular moment on Abydos. Why this moment is never explained.

because there is no time travel, no actual mucking about in the character's past, no Stations Of The Canon to be avoided, messed with, or otherwise altered. What it is is a Clip Show using Daniel's amnesia to highlight just how much his relationship with Jack changed from movieverse to just a couple seasons into the series.

At a simple glance, Harry Potter Shattered Prophecy, by Insanity Lord, does not appear to be a Peggy Sue story, just an AU.

Could someone who has read the story confirm this?

Consider this Word of God - Shattered Prophecy is not a Peggy Sue fic, it's an AU.

For Harry Potter, I suggest adding 'Harry Potter and the Temporal Beacon'.

  • Next is a film where a character effectively has this as a power.

I've denatterfied this into a single point, but it still comes across as rather indecisive, so someone who's seen them film might want to clean it up.

The ending would be the film's best example of a Peggy Sue because it's longer than any jump he can make normally. However, that's a spoiler, so... Adding tag.

The Persona 4 fic listed, "Fortune's Revolver" doesn't seem to exist. I google search for it, and all that turns up is this page. Does anyone have a link for it?

There are some duplicate entries in the Naruto section. The two specifically being "Reload" and "For the Love of my Friends". There might be more in the other sections that I'm not seeing.
