How different can it be?
Jojo's Timely Adventure is an ongoing fic originally posted on April Fools of 2019 by Archive of Our Own user Sarcatic_Raspberry. Regardless of its release date, the fic is intended to be taken seriously as it follows the story of how Jotaro and Kakyoin swapped places in time with Caesar and a young Joseph Joestar.

Jojo's Timely Adventure contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Heroism: Avdol manages to shame Death 13's stand user into backing down by pointing out that Dio is unlikely to let his parents live long if he takes over the world.
  • Adaptation Name Change: Mannish Boy's name was changed to Fihr, the author reasoning that his canon name was dumb even by the series' standards.
  • Being Watched: The Crusaders during the battle against the Sun.
  • Came Back Wrong: The Imposter Caesar
  • The Constant: Though he's changed a lot, Caesar sees Joseph's demeanor over time as this.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: Judgement tricks Joseph into believing that Caesar has been miraculously resurrected.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Avdol uses this to Get Death 13's stand user to spare the Stardust Crusaders, pointing out that Dio is unlikely to let his Good Parents live if he succeeds in taking over the world.
