"An infinite series of times, in a growing, dizzying net of divergent, convergent and parallel times."

Home to stories set in an alternative universe. Though technically all stories can qualify, this is an archive for those set in an alternate timeline and those whose authors especially consider their work as being this way. Suggestions and self-promotion welcome.

(Made because they're so hard to find and ZEXAL really needs a listing.)
