I remember when Arc V was release and it had like 30 episodes I saw a theory about the actual timeline at that moment (then come Zarc and Ray throwing that theory to the garbage), so I want to do one timeline myself with the new information:
DM: The beginning.
Bonds Beyond Time, GX, 5D’s: Before the final of DM Paradox trying to disappear Duel Monster failing in the attempt, then come GX with the same events and after 5D’s with
the small influence from Yugi and Judai on Yusei since the WRGP.
Original Timeline, Zone’s destroyed world: The problems with the Synchro Monsters happen and the world is destroyed. Zone travels to the past with the last humans.
Zone Lose, Normal End of 5D’s: In this timeline Zone failed his mission, Team 5D’s change the future.
Zone Wins, Zexal: Zone achieved his goal, Synchro were eradicated, the XYZ monster was created to cover the lack of the Synchro. In the serie we don´t see any references to 5D’s even in the Duel Sanctuary.
The Dark Side of Dimensions, Zarc and Ray’s events, Arc V: With a big evolution of the technology the Real Solid Vision was created and all the events that we seen on Arc V happens. This point is clarified if we think that don’t see characters from DM and the ones that could see from GX looks older than their counterparts.
“You can witness the evolution and destruction of humanity; the end of the Earth and Sun; the dissociation of our galaxy; the heat death of the Universe itself. So long as you have enough power in your space ship, you can travel as far into the future as you like.”
Have you ever wondered about time travel? Perhaps you have your destination in the far future, and want to see how it all turns out? Maybe you want to return to the past, and alter the future or present by your actions there? Or maybe you want to freeze time altogether? If you want to know whether it’s possible, the physics of relativity holds the answer. Special relativity allows us to control our motion through time by manipulating our motion through space. The more we move through space, the less we move through time, allowing us to travel as far as we want into the future, limited only by our energy available for space travel. But going to the past requires some specific solutions to general relativity, which may (or may not) describe our physical Universe.
So, I don’t know how many people picked up on the symbolic meaning behind Luna drowning Roan and how that scene ties to her own drowning scene in 3x14, but there is an important connection I’d like to point out.
Here is the thing, repetition carries weight, as you know, because when you see a certain type of scene play out more than once, there’s a
connection between them formed by association. The connection I’m about to make isn’t
strictly between the scenes though, but how they affect Luna as a character.
When Luna experiences the big threat on her rig in 3x14, we witness the fighter she was trained to be (the night blood who fled her conclave) unleashed for the first time. Notably, we also come to see that during the entire torture procedure Luna is not only exposed to the threat of ALIE destroying her peaceful world alone, but also brings forth the killer Luna thought she sealed away.
She starts to come face to face with that issue when one of her own people (chipped) forcibly holds her down, brings ALIE’s chip close to her mouth and tells her to take it - to which she shockingly reacts “What’s happened to you?!”.
It’s Jasper, who is tied up close to her, who tells Luna that the chip is the one thing that makes her friend commit violence against her, a brutal reality Luna never thought she would relive - especially not here - but is exposed to nonetheless. Not only that, but she’s faced with the one thing she never wanted to do again - fight. It’s a realization for her as much as it acts like a new wound in her heart, because Luna is slowly coming to lose the peaceful armor that is coating her body, and forced to embrace the darkness she so desperately wanted to escape. The interplay between how the chip is there to take the pain away and how Luna eventually ends up doing the most painful thing is therefore horrible as it is supposed to represent the catalyst, but doesn’t end up being the thing that breaks her demeanor - Luna breaks by fighting back.
When her peaceful armor comes off completely and is replaced by a skin that carries pure instinct, it’s not because of her boyfriend (who has taken the chip himself for her), but for a little girl - Adria - whom ALIE threatens to kill. So, the torture in itself and the fact that Adria is in danger - two things that break down Luna’s choices - are the reasons why she surrenders and gives in to fighting.
In that way, we don’t only experience what Luna looks like as a fighter, but what her entire traumatic backstory has been - she trained, she struggled and she fled only to end up in a position in which she’d hurt and get hurt again.
In less than seconds we see the night blood take down four of her own people. And by doing so, she comes to a close understanding of her victims humanity by looking it right in the face… yet again. Luna’s hands are dirty, she’s never had the chance to have it otherwise, with guilt always rippling through her body, because this is exactly what she looked like when she killed her own brother.
The transition from the past to the present and even future is crazy, because this image is exactly what she will look like in 4x10 - all soaked up and lethal and fearless. Only this time the game will have completely changed, as Luna is not forced to embrace the darkness anymore, but literally chooses to do so.
When Luna breaks for a second time, it’s because she has no one left, because she’s a person defined only by her blood “your blood can save us”, a tool who’s supposed to keep people alive that she considers cruel to their core.
You know, it’s revelatory for her to acknowledge that she can’t bear to think about humanity anymore, considering everything that has happened to her and her loved ones,
and that her only escape is to surrender to the sense of touch that makes
her both powerful and weak, mixed with the rightful anger towards the people who literally used her - I fully am against what happened to Luna in the last episode (most of all how her choices/death were portrayed - I literally despise these aspects), but her turn in itself is understandable.
So, In 4x10 she happens to be both - Sealed away and fully there.
Black rain creates an image to her state of mind and the one thing that sets her apart, because 1. it represents the skin that she unleashed during ALIE’s presence on the rig; only this time she uses it to fight for death (for all mankind no less) and 2. for once, she is actually protected by something stronger than her own
skin, the one thing she thought a curse - her blood.
‘Cause here is the thing: Echo was wrong. Luna does not bleed like everyone else. Not even slightly. Even if her blood has lost significance within their own culture, she is the only one (besides Clarke I guess) who’s able to walk through black rain without dying - the water in which her fight with Roan takes place.
Black rain is literally the testament of Luna’s being here. She’s a nightblood.
And she drowns Roan in it - ‘Honoring’ him with her last words not because he was good to her, but because - to her - he and mankind don’t deserve better.
From where she is standing she’s got nothing to lose “They are all gone”. In other words, she deserved to survive, be saved and see the change.

On the night of May 2nd 1998, Draco Malfoy lays awake on his bed.
“It’s over. He’s dead. It’s over.” His mind chants. But is it?
A dark, hooded figure that hadn’t been there a second before stands on the edge of his bed, Malfoy starts. He grasps for his wand before realizing he hasn’t got one. The hooded figure chuckles, voice acidic and cold.
“You cheated me.” It says, Draco is frozen in place, searching his brain for whoever this might be. It can’t be the Dark Lord. He’s dead. Draco saw him die today. It can’t be.
“I’m Death.” It answers the question he hadn’t voiced, the knowledge brings a sense of Deja Vu, but he can’t quite place it “and no, I’m not here to take you with me.” he fails to conceal his disappointment. The room feels colder than it had.
“You were meant to die today, in the fire, but you didn’t.” The hairs on his body stand on edge at the mention of it. He’s shaking before he realizes it.
It had been so hot, he’d been gripping Potter’s waist like a lifeline, the fire licking at the hems of his pants, his screams drowned by the roar of the flames, Crabbe falling down and being consumed by them like he was nothing. He thought he’d die. He wishes he had.
“It was written on the stars, Draco Malfoy. However did you cheat the heavenly bodies?” It drawls out impatiently, he doesn’t know the answer. Is he supposed to?
“For this, however.” Death says, swishing it’s cloak, bony hands showing “I owe you a wish. Any wish at all.”
Draco’s eyes widen and his heart picks up speed in his chest. Any wish at all.
He suddenly remembers hearing a similar story to this one. Every bone in his body advices him not to accept, for Death could only be cunning and deceitful, not giving and generous.
Or perhaps Life was the first two and Death’s sweet release was the last. Perhaps life had been the cruel one all along. He dreams of a world where he doesn’t have to feel all of this, where the guilt doesn’t eat him alive, where he never takes the Dark Mark, where war doesn’t kill hundreds, where he’s happy.
He realizes that even if Death is fooling him, he doesn’t mind the likely outcome.
“I want a time turner” he says firmly “One capable of going back to 1991.” If Death is surprised, it doesn’t show it, it moves it’s hands in a swish and a time turner appears between them. It floats until it settles on Draco’s hand.
“Act wisely, Malfoy boy. For I can only grant you one wish.” It says, the ghost of a smile behind the dark hood. Then disappears.
Draco clutches the object and adjusts the time. He wonders if he’s in a dream, if it’ll work. Maybe he’s already dead and doesn’t know it, he doesn’t mind much.
Doesn’t care to find out.
He closes his eyes and is launched into the paradox of time and space. He sees a colorless void and falls falls falls. His body small and insignificant in the never-ending space. Just when he’s starting to become fond of the quiet nothing and the soothing air touching his face, his stomach twists and he appears in a room that he knows too well. High ceilings and cool toned ancient furnitures. No feeling of home or coziness despite belonging to a child.
His childhood bedroom. If one could call it that.
He looks at the clock with a sharp twist and beneath the time, it reveals the date.
July 31st of 1991.
He almost can’t believe he has succeeded, but can’t dwell on his fear and excitement too long, for a small boy whom he knows too well and not at all stands at the foot of his bed, staring at him in horror. It’s a shock, seeing himself so full of life in the innocence of a child who doesn’t know what the future entails. A child with eager eyes and a prideful chest. Malfoy realizes he’s a ghost of what this child is.
“Who are you?” The small one shrieks. Draco presses a finger to his lips, shushing him. He’s grateful that the Manor is big enough for them not to be heard.
“I’m you. From the future.” young Draco flinches back and is about to start shouting again, before he seems to take in Draco’s features and connects them to an older version of himself. His eyes widen and Draco can see himself panic and glance around frantically, although also subtly, for an escape.
Slytherins. He thinks fondly.
“That’s not possible. Why-how are you here?” He demands.
“I have a story to tell you. But the first thing you need to know.” He swallows a lump in his throat “is that today you will be meeting a boy as you get fitted for your Hogwarts robes. I want you to change what you will say to him, for it’ll change how he sees you. It is extremely important that you do so.”
“Why? What do you mean? I don’t understand.” young Draco looks even more confused, of course he is.
Draco explains as much as he can and sugar coats what a child shouldn’t have to know. He attempts to explain to his own self that the opinions of his father are wrong, the small Draco tries to protest, but he doesn’t allow him to and continues telling him what’ll happen if he doesn’t listen carefully. By the end, his voice is hoarse and little Draco looks sick with fear. But he nods, seemingly understanding he has a duty to perform even if he doesn’t quite understand all of it it. Ah, the usual Malfoy, accepting what’s presented to him, born to please his elders, he thinks bitterly.
“Who’ll be the boy I’ll meet today?” His younger self asks tentatively when Draco is done talking and stands up. Draco smiles nostalgically as he adjusts the time again.
“I have put my faith in you, what you choose to do from now can change everything.” He says, and just as he feels the void sucking him in again, he says his last words to the last hope he’s got.
“And Draco, one last thing.” the kid nods “offer him your hand before you learn his name.”
where things grow, there is hope, all that heals has hope.
Nikola Tesla Describing Quantum Entanglement In 1891.
“Nature has stored up in the universe infinite energy. The eternal recipient and transmitter of this infinite energy is the ether. The recognition of the existence of ether, and of the functions it performs, is one of the most important results of modern scientific research. The mere abandoning of the idea of action at a distance, the assumption of a medium pervading all space and connecting all gross matter, has freed the minds of thinkers of an ever present doubt, and, by opening a new horizon—new and unforeseen possibilities—has given fresh interest to phenomena with which we are familiar of old. It has been a great step towards the understanding of the forces of nature and their multifold manifestations to our senses. It has been for the enlightened student of physics what the understanding of the mechanism of the firearm or of the steam engine is for the barbarian.”
“Experiments With Alternate Currents Of Very High Frequency And Their Application To Methods Of Artificial Illumination.” Lecture delivered before the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, Columbia College, N.Y., May 20, 1891.
It was a paradox because it was a lonely experience, ‘cause I felt alone in my experience but I was surrounded by thousands of people every single day who tell me they loved me all the time, and that paradox was, is, very special.(x)
