WARNING: UNMARKED SPOILERS FOR Web Animation/RWBY VOLUMES 3 AND ON!
I'll admit, I first started reading this only because of a nice piece of fanart depicting a scene where Velvet is given a little plushie version of herself by Jaune, and it is pretty damn cute, so I wanted to know the context behind it.
The story has a premise I can't say I had come across before reading it. It's a Peggy Sue fic involving Jaune being sent back in time to prevent an absolutely catastrophic end for Remnant, but Jaune doesn't get his future memories fully, instead he only has them subconsciously like muscle memory and PTSD triggers, as well as increased aura and a mysterious substance called the Black Dust. So you have Jaune technically Dreaming of Things to Come while being slightly stronger and taking a more active role in the greater plot of the first two volumes.
But then you realize that not only are those stories a dime a dozen thanks to authors like Coeur Al Aran, but that there are some big problems the fic has.
So yeah, interesting premise, bogged down in execution, a rushed Harem plot thats even bigger than a series known for being about a Harem plot, constant shifts to the narrative to reflect canon without changing what already happened, it just makes this fic... mediocre at best, bad at worst.
