A flash forward…or flash back, depending on what point in whose timing you’re looking at…showing yet another loop on the timeline of Yomiko Readman.

World Enough And Time 1/13 published on No Comments on World Enough And Time 1/13

We now pause in our apocalyptic showdown to present a scene from the future. Welcome to the far-off year of… …um, 2007. Nenene (Japanese): Is this the place? Yomiko (Japanese): I don’t know! It’s been a long time. But causality states that wherever we stop will retroactively become the right place. Nenene: And you’re sure… Continue reading World Enough And Time 1/13

Nenene: Did you tell anyone we’d be here? Yomiko: No. It’s just us. Anyone else would say “But you could save thousands of lives! Maybe prevent ’99 altogether! Why won’t you even try?” Nenene: That’s stupid. You did try. Yomiko: And that’s why I invited you along.

Yomiko: No matter what I did to avoid ’99, even if it worked, it damaged the timeline. Meetings that were supposed to happen never did. Warriors who should have been forged that day went on to peaceful careers in accounting. Eventually the time loops fell apart, taking the fabric of existence with them. Of course,… Continue reading World Enough And Time 3/13

Yomiko (narrating): Back in linear time, I’ve talked to my time-traveling self, disguised as the people I remember meeting. I even managed to save a few of the Library’s doomed manuscripts without destroying the universe in the process. But the stakes have never been as high as this. I don’t know if I’m ready! Nenene:… Continue reading World Enough And Time 4/13

Past Yomiko: Well, that was embarrassing…but I guess you already knew it was going to happen! This is my future, right? What year? Can you tell me? Nenene (thinking): Come on, sensei…it’s now or never… Yomiko: … Nenene: All right, past-Sensei, listen up. It’s April 18, 2007. We’re on the Cliffs of Dover. You’ll find… Continue reading World Enough And Time 6/13

Nenene: There’s going to be a fight. A big one. If something happens and you start asking yourself, “Is this it?”…that’s not it. When it happens, you won’t have to ask. One explanation later… Nenene: Got it? Past Yomiko: I do. Nenene: Because I can write it down if you want. Past Yomiko: As if… Continue reading World Enough And Time 7/13

Past Yomiko: Nenene…I’ve read enough plays to know dramatic irony when I see it. What aren’t you telling me? Nenene: Plenty. But I promise, I know it all. No matter what happens, no matter what you do or what you go thorugh, don’t forget… I’ll be waiting for you at the end.

Past Yomiko: Until I meet you again, Nenene. I could tell you how important you are to me…but I think I’ll leave that for my future self to handle. [FLASH] Nenene: Sorry, sensei…even if it screwed over the timeline, I couldn’t let you face ’99 thinking you were alone. Yomiko: I know. That’s exactly how… Continue reading World Enough And Time 9/13

Yomiko: If I hadn’t had your encouragement to go on, I might have…I don’t know, hid in a basement for ten years, or something. Nenene: Well, it’s a good thing you didn’t do that! Because then, we wouldn’t be able to do this… Mmmm…. Voice: Found them!
