| Chyme for the Rhyme chapter 15 . 10/19/2016
Damn. To put it bluntly. There's so much tragedy and hubris in these 'rewinds' especially for the bystanders who get caught up in Charmcaster's selfishness. And while I appreciate that this seems to have been written before Charmcaster's or rather Hope's backstory was canonically revealed, I can't help but see the 'spider' story she tells Gwen as not only a metaphor for herself and the web she weaves throughout time, but a parable of what happened in her home dimension with Aggregor 'eating' every other creature that dared to use magic and 'steal' the mana he saw as his own.
I really liked the possibilities unveiled here, a Max who was twisted in a way no other Max we've seen before was twisted, which leaves question of how his life with Verdona and his kids progressed in the past, a Gwen from past chapters coming back to haunt Charmcaster with an elegant but well-thought-out plan, having cast off her humanity and become a fulll-on anodite now that those who might have helped her remain tethered to her humanity are gone - ironically enough, Charmcaster perhaps being one of them earlier on on her timeline. And the 'vacation' loop with Ben going horribly, horribly wrong, especially for him as his caught in the crossfire of a Charmcaster coalition at the end and just feeling relief that his death doesn't hurt as much as it could have. There's glum and then there's just passive acceptance.
Of course there's hope for well, Hope at the end when she breaks the cycle. But of course, there's no telling what awaits her in this do-over. Looks like she'll have to forge her own way the way a truly regular person with. But hopefully this time she'll be a little wiser about it. And it won't lead to such heartbreak for the people around her.

Interesting take on the endless loops fics. Very well-done. First Charmcaster-centric fic I've read . I doubt I'll find a better one.

The concept of this story and the dedication to its cause amazed me, and continues to do so.
Time looped stories that are actually related to world hopping are fascinating and awesome.
Or horrific in this case.
You are impressive; karkaddin.
I'll be watching you.
Over and out.
