No More, No Less-(about Magus using the Time Egg to save Schala)
« on: February 15, 2017, 04:36:07 pm »
This is a fanfic I made some time ago addressing the idea of Magus using the Chrono Trigger to save Schala.  I always wondered about that being an option and a potential divergent storyline with some interesting possibilities.

I know it's is a little too late in replying to this, but I loved this story. I dig redemption arcs, and you made Magus' one to remember. I especially liked your 'Take That!' towards Chrono Cross. It makes me wonder how your version of Schala would react to seeing Kid.

Great work, and I hope you can do more in the future. Exceptional fanfiction authors are hard to find.

I'm glad you responded Skylark as that prompted me to read it as well. I really enjoyed reading this! I'm usually on here while I'm at work and I didn't leave until I was done reading. LOL Well done!!

I read this as well, and I have to say I like it. I've always been a fan of sappier fanfiction (which this is not) but find it hard nowadays not to cringe at, and this managed to offer a lot of that sweetness while actually being a good read.

 Schala's return has often flown in the face of something I think she served to demonstrate in the game: That you can't save everyone, and there's always a price to pay. I feel like this work demonstrates that, while still combatting the idea with Chrono Trigger's more positive half - dreams and determination. Hell, it runs on that, and the ending I think reflects that perfectly.
