Now, before my story goes any further, there is one last facet of my power you must know about. And it’s the most critical part of my power.

If you change one thing, just one thing in your Past, and that Thing is a drastic piece of your Present, then BOOM!
Your Present Timeline vanishes.
And it can’t come back.
Which means you’re stuck on your Past Timeline, as it has become your Present.
