A/N & prompt: Sorta inspired by tumblr prompt by mayon-usha : "Well, if you still feel like writing in the Assassin's Creed universe too: The Jedi are descended from the Templars, and the Sith(or just darksiders in general) are a bastardization of the Assassins. Some Sith or traitor Jedi finds an old abandoned temple on some long lost planet, with a "Sith of old" stored within. They awaken it, only for Desmond to pop out. Commence Desmond bitchslapping people for their stupidity."
Didn't quite write that, but I'm always up for troubling people found in ancient Sith temples. Or Isu temples, in this case.
Obi-Wan narrowed his eyes. "Who are you?" He asked, hoping a direct question would yield answers. The old man seemed adept at side-stepping information when asked a bit more deftly. “I’ve never heard of a Master with your level of talent.”
The old man seemed surprised. “If you’ve never heard of one like me, then what good would my name be? You wouldn’t know it.”
Obi-Wan felt a flare of irritation, and quickly squashed it. The old man blinked, as if he hadn’t expected to feel that, and he smiled, sadly. “My name is Luke,” he said, as if a peace offering.
The force trilled in his ear, and Obi-Wan frowned. "Luke what?" He asked, and the old man, this Luke, smiled wryly.
In which Tom Riddle Senior never could fully put Merope’s claims of being pregnant out of his mind and set out to bring his child home, unwittingly changing the fate of both the Wizarding and Muggle worlds and laying waste to the machinations of a certain scheming old man.

Will didn’t know how this was happening.
He didn’t know why.
But it was.
Even if he couldn’t trust his eyes, not always anyway, he trusted what he felt, tactile sensation, and everything he felt said that this was happening. His body didn’t have the aches and pains and scars he knew. There was no knot of scar tissue causing issues with his shoulder from being stabbed. No smile across his stomach from a linoleum knife or bullet wound in his non-stabbed shoulder.
He was his relatively untouched teenager self, brain too much for most to handle and awkward social abilities that had landed him a full-ride to Tulane off of his high IQ and ability to pass a test – so long as it wasn’t a psych exam, though now that he knew what he knew he’d be willing to bet that was changed.
In fact…as plans and plots started to come together, he was counting on it.
It would be a long game.
Almost twenty years.
A different Will would be sorry for all those who would die between then and now, let alone those that would come after, but as he sat down and began the first of many lists that would shape his future for the next decade or more, he didn’t feel any guilt at all.

Tony Stark opened his eyes in his lab. He looked around the lab in confusion. This was his Malibu house. He could have sworn he was in the middle of a debrief a moment ago. Was he dead? Was this his hell?
He stood up from his seat and took a lap around the lab. These were past projects. He recognized one of them from when he was searching for a cure for the palladium poisoning. A look under his shirt told him he was still looking. There was a name at the tip of his tongue, and Tony was almost too scared to mention it, too scared that there might be no answer from its owner. As if reading his mind, the voice answered.
"You're not dreaming, Sir."
Tony’s knees became jelly. In an instant, he was on the floor. "JARVIS?", he whispered, almost like a prayer and still too scared to hope.
"It's 12:10 am, May 29, 2010." JARVIS replies. "Happy Birthday, Sir."

"You know my son?" She asks, very disbelieving, because her son, as far as she knows, is trying very, very hard, fighting with his wife about it every goddamned day, to get out of the life, for his daughter's sake. And this boy looks about as in the life as one could possibly get. But then, the strangest thing happens, Allison comes up behind her asking:
"Gramma? Who i'sit?"
And the boy's face melts, "Awwww," he coos, "Ally! You're just the cutest little thing, aren't you!"
Allison blushes brightly, "Umm, hi?"
"Hello, there. My name is Stiles, I know your daddy, he talks about you all the time, did you know that? He loves you the bestest out of everyone in the whole world! And why wouldn't he? Look at you, those pinchable cheeks!" And all of her doubt flies out the window. Allison is one of the Argents better-kept secrets, because Chris has been adamant about that, if the boy knows of her Chris must trust him immensely.
"Uh huh, and you're an ass. Look, just- don't go killing anyone, okay?"
That is an odd thing for a child to be- and, seriously, from what she can tell- asking an adult. Even odder asking it of Peter who, despite his interest in the macabre, is a fairly gentle soul by all accounts, at least, that she knows of, because he actually seems to be thinking about it.
"I make no promises," he finally says, softly, honestly, and Stiles just gives him a long hard look before sighing and nodding in understanding.
"Well, I guess it isn't fair to ask that of you, really, under the circumstances, so, how about... Don't kill anyone who doesn't deserve it- by my standards, not your own, you fucking psycho."
"Hey, I'm not that bad," Peter sniffs, and Stiles narrows his eyes, "anymore."
Boyd is there, hovering over his claws, Isaac looks devastated, Jennifer looks bewildered and concerned and horrified, Kali looks smug, the twins are carefully keeping their faces blank but they're playing along, and- Gods, he's really going to be forced to do this, isn't he? Pack, his Pack, the make-shift family he'd all but accidentally gathered is going to die by his hand, and even if it's forced, it'll still be his fault, for wanting them, for needing them, for biting them.
He wants to close his eyes but he owes Boyd more than that.
And then, abruptly, in this saturated technicolor still-picture moment of chaos and violence- the eye of the storm- the door to the loft crashes open. With the water and the metal and the force of it, the sound is almost guttural, and far too loud- even Kali seems startled.
Talia smiles at him, because it's obvious, despite how young he is, that he's the one responsible for their survival. Their lungs are still clogged with smoke so she can't catch his scent, but she's sure he smells of magic.
"Do you know who I am, little Mage?"
"Jesus Christ. Yes. You're the one responsible for the giant ball of traumatized man-pain with abandonment issues who is going to kill me. And if he doesn't do it, God knows Peter will. And then he'll say something smarmy that's 18% sexy and 100% percent psychopathic serial killer, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god. Do you think Cora was being serious when she said it would be easy for her to rip out my intestines and strangle me with them? No. You know what? Never mind, don't answer that. I don't actually want to know," The boy comes to a halt in front of her, rambling tongue finally managing to still.
"Hello, hi—Talia, right? Talia Hale? Mother of the legendary Sourwolf! Hahaha! Ha. Heh, right, okay."
"Yes," she agrees, feeling dazed, "I'm Talia. My son... traumatized?" She clears her throat uncomfortably, decides to try for steadier ground. "He wouldn't—no one in my Pack would kill you, child, you've just saved all our lives."
per A/N, it's a WIP, but I'd consider it finished: "Also: Amnesty; this is likely a forever WIP, if you wanna run away with it, feel free"
Derek's lips twitch up, like they always do whenever Stiles calls him that. (He started a couple months ago, a few weeks after Allison; he'd been feeling off and floaty and odd and disgusting, had taken four very long showers and was sat with stinging, flushed, over-sensitive skin, all raw, shivering ache. He'd tried to get up to take another, but Derek had held him back, made him stay in his seat and pick a movie for them.
"Let it rest, Stiles," he'd said softly, voice a little rough.
"But, Der," he'd protested, though he was already relaxing back into the man's hold. Then he'd looked up at his face, and Derek had been looking at him with something he'd never seen before in those eyes, a kind of melancholy-hopeful smile gracing his face, and Stiles had barely been able to breathe past the sudden lump in his throat.
It had felt natural, at the time, to call him that. He still doesn't really know why. But, then, Derek had kissed his temple, run a gentling hand down his arm, indicated the tv again speechlessly, and Stiles had resolved to call him by that nickname as often as possible.)
"How do you feel about time-travel?"

Anthony DiNozzo/Tom Kirkman. Major Character Death: Alex dies pre-show (43,801 words)
“It’ll be fine,” Stiles says gallantly. “I am certain I will just fall in love with my husband all over again, and I will find plenty of joy doing that.” He winks at Derek for good measure.
per mklutz: SO MANY THINGS HAPPEN IN THIS STORY AND ALL OF THEM ARE WONDERFUL
Now Desmond finds himself wondering if Animus was possible because it had to be possible, just to make him possible, because the fucking… historic existence paradox had to happen somehow. Because he saw the past, the way for past to be seen had to become a thing, somehow.
He kind of wants to have a headache now, one of those splitting spikes through the brain he used to get before Animus Island, just to have something to stop that terrible, horrifying train of thought.
"I can go anywhere," Desmond says, his voice shaking a little.
"Anywhere your blood has tread, yes," Jupiter agrees, watching him. "But know this – no matter how you change the past, the past will yet create you. You will always exist – you cannot undo yourself. Time will always lead you here."
Desmond draws a breath and as much as he'd like to withdraw back to the blissful ignorance of questioning and denial… he gets it faster than he'd like. "I'll always die December 21, 2012," he says slowly.
"You will always be here, now," Jupiter says.
Desmond swallows and nods. Well… he'd made his peace with that. Sort of. And all evidence kind of suggests death is not going to be the end of him, whenever it comes, however it comes – hell at this point he's not sure if he even can die properly.
"Is – is there ever going to be anyone else?" Desmond asks then. "Like me, I mean – will there be other Ciphers?"
"Not that we have seen them," Jupiter says.
Federico tilts his head, glancing at his father and looking to Desmond's face. He doesn't look too bothered by it, but there's hint of something there. Exhaustion or maybe frustration. "Do you mind if I ask what happened?" Federico asks. "You came to Florence with nothing, you live in a tomb – were you robbed, or…?"
Though who could rob a Master Assassin?
Desmond doesn't answer immediately, concentrating onto oiling his chest guard. Then he shakes his head. "No, we weren't robbed," he says and frowns. "I guess you could say we got exiled."
Giovanni's eyes widen at that and he looks up to Federico sharply. Federico frowns – that's… as much as he admires Desmond, that's worrisome. "From – the Branch of the Brotherhood you're from?" he asks slowly.
Ser Desmond has never claimed the title of Assassin. He wears the hood and carries the mannerism with the practiced ease of a born Assassin, but he's never called himself that. And he doesn't call his companions that either – and they aren't fighters. So, does that mean…
Desmond chuckles wryly and shakes his head, glancing at Giovanni. "A piece of Eden was involved," he admits quietly. "We didn't agree how it was about to be used, the consequences it would've had to the world. So… we were sent away to somewhere where we couldn't make trouble anymore."
That term again. Federico grimaces with frustration, looking up to his father, but Giovanni's expression has drawn thoughtful and tense. "And this Piece of Eden, where is it now?"
"Very, very far away," Desmond says with a snort of bitter laugh. "Not really an issue here."
"What the hell is this, Desmond?" Clay asks, wiping at his mouth, leaning his forehead onto the blessedly cool surface of the porcelain sink. "My body's dead – it died – how am I – " he stops to stare at his hand, and then shakily pulls his sleeve down. No scars, no wounds, no blood. "How?"
Desmond sighs, and sits on the bathroom floor beside him. "Few days back I woke up in Black Hills," he says. "Just… nine years back in time," he says. "Came to find you because I need something from you – didn't expect this exactly. What the hell did you do?"
Clay closes his eyes. "Water," he croaks.
Desmond looks at him flatly and then reaches up to turn the tap on before reaching for the shower head. Without a second thought, Clay turns it on himself and soaks his face with the outpour, heedless of his clothes getting wet and the mess he's making. Fuck, it feels glorious. Cold and real.
"I – it was like a backup. You know, just in case," Clay gasps, after rinsing his mouth and drinking his fill and getting water everywhere. "It wasn't really – it wasn't the whole thing, just essentials. Just in case."
"Just in case what, I ran into something you could hijack? Like a comatose body?" Desmond asks.
"I was thinking more along the lines of Animus with enough unused data storage. Or maybe computer. I could've done with the internet," Clay says and drops the shower head. As he just breathes for a moment, Desmond reaches up to turn the faucet off again. "You travelled back in time?" Clay then asks, disbelieving.
"Apparently. Don't ask me how – it just happened," Desmond answers and leans back again. "I died and then I woke up."
"You – died."
"Yeah – at the Grand Temple. The device, the one that was supposed to save the world, it killed me," Desmond says and lifts his knees up, to lean his elbows on them. "Doubt it was intentional, though. I mean, the time travelling. Juno wouldn't have done it, not when she just got what she wanted."
Clay frowns a bit at that and then lifts his head, wincing. "This is insane," he mutters and wipes the water from his eyes. "I'm just a college student – what the hell is this?"
"I will give you the knowledge of flight," Minerva decides. "And you will be start the humanity's quest for the skies hundreds of years ahead of it's time. This will ensure that by the time the Sun begins its flaring, humanity will be ready."
Desmond opens his mouth and makes a garbled noise of objection. "That's – you're kidding me. That will change everything!" he says. "That will change – the whole human history."
"Only the last five hundred years of it," Minerva says dismissively
"I… think I'm going to fuck up all of history," Desmond says quietly and looks at her, watching her expression carefully. If she thinks it's stupid… "Juno's been messing with us and Templars since Altaïr's time. I want to go back and… stop her from doing that."
To her credit, Rebecca doesn't look like she thinks he's lost his mind. Actually, she kind of looks like she was expecting it. "It's probably going to take more than just that, Desmond," she says quietly, watching him seriously. "If she can influence people through all the Pieces of Eden… it's gonna take more that just changing the start."
"Yeah, I know," Desmond agrees quietly. "But I can't just go back and destroy her here without destroying the Temple - we still need it. But if I get there and cut her off somehow before she can start changing things and making a mess of everything, then maybe…" he trails off, frustrated. "I have to try."
Rebecca frowns, rubbing her hands together. "Eight hundred years, Desmond," she says. "Eight hundred years of potential manipulation and changes to history. That's… a lot."
"Yeah," he says and grimaces. Eight hundred years and a few hours to plan it. "I think I'm going to have to try it anyway. Will you help me?"

He goes back to when the Prophecy is first made, to when Severus overhears it. He goes back so he is there when Severus is starting to have second thoughts about being a Death Eater. In the past, he ends up getting to know Severus as an actual person. Both of them need some emotional support and both of them have no one to reach out to. The fact that they are a similar age and at a similar stage in their lives eases tensions that might otherwise have existed.

[[The one where Harry accidentally travels back in time from just after the Battle of Hogwarts to the night his parents would have died, teams up with Severus to take down Voldemort, and goes by the pseudonym Hurricane. Really enjoy this fic, surprised I hadn't bookmarked it yet]]
His life, it seemed, was pre-determined to be abnormal to the extreme. He was standing in the headmaster’s office, staring forlornly at the cracked time-turner he had been forbidden from using, when a part of the ceiling caved in. Reflexes polished from the barely day-old battle kicked in, and he found himself braced against the fireplace to escape the debris.
The time-turner’s chain though, had caught on a splinter from the mantelpiece and ripped out of his clutch. With a feeling of despair he watched as the tiny hourglass swung in a slow arc, only to be violently smashed back towards the fireplace as a stone clipped it on the side.
Despair turned to horror as the glass shattered and showered him in an amount of sand that should have been impossible for the tiny glass container to contain. Dark green flames sprung up then, and swept him away in the familiar sensation of flooing.
It was a decidedly awkward moment when he landed back in the Headmaster’s office. There was Snape – a much younger Snape, but unmistakably Snape – on his knees, robes torn and dirty and bent over Dumbledore’s feet with tears streaming down his face; and there was Dumbledore, hand stretched out in the process of offering comfort. Both men started at his arrival as he clumsily landed on all fours on the floor.
Harry recognized this scene though. He had watched it in a pensieve barely a day ago. This was the night his parents would die.
Dumbledore laced his fingers in front of him as he sat down. “I am also curious to know how you managed to floo into a fireplace that is not currently connected to the floo-network.”
Harry tilted his head back to rest on the tall backrest behind him. “I suppose I’m a time traveller. It was an accident, but I’m fairly sure I’m not in my own timeline anymore.” He rolled his head back to focus on the headmaster. “Thanks to a bookworm friend of mine I am aware of the consequences of messing with time, but the scene I dropped in on was shown to me in a memory and was not interrupted.”

Newton was watching him as he glanced back and saw that someone had been thoughtful enough to provide him a chair.
He pulled it up and sat down, wincing and stretching his bad leg out in front of him.
“Hello Hermann,” Newton said and there was a hint of a sneer in his voice.
“Hello Newton,” Hermann replied, “How are you doing today?”
