What do you mean by time travel?
Like, do you characters suddenly time travel due to the effects of Slendy, or what?

(Sorry I haven't gotten to your blog yet, I've got a list)

change the dates on the entries? totally in plot, like say...leaving chekov's gun lying where you needed it two weeks ago?

I think it's a pretty fun concept, but I don't like the idea of anything taking away slendy's fear

Time Travel gets a thumbs up from me ;D

Just becareful how you go about it; in any story, it's so easy to tie yourself up in knots with time travel if you don't plan ahead. And if you can, try to use it sparingly - with time travel, it's usually a case of 'the less you use it, the more juicy it is when you do use it' :3
And don't go creating any parodoxes!

Otherwise the time Reapers will get you.

There was a whole time travel Arc in Copper and Chrome which got aborted because of the sheer complexity of pulling it off.

If its self caused time travel, be very careful. Audiences who are not prepared can only take so much magical stuff.

I also think time travel needs to be handled with care. It's not a complete break of suspension of disbelief, but handled incorrectly, it could be.

I used time travel in one of my more recent posts, but that was just a plot device, created so that

Time travel, how does it work?!

I think that it is always fun to write but hard to follow as an audience member, so I'd just say little steps are the key. I always think of that one Harry Potter movie where Hermone is running around fucking with things and you keep seeing all these little things from one perspective then the other perspective. I think that is a brilliant way to handle it.
