In any event, I assume that at least one rule exists, directly or indirectly: you cannot travel backwards in Creation time by taking a hop through Void. Doing that would lead to all sorts of problems, grandfather paradoxes, and what have you.
That's not an assumption. It's the truth.

ON the other hand, it can be FTL regardless, since it isn't moving through Creation's spacetime and therefore isn't subject to Creation's relativity.  As far as Creation is concerned, the Ashley that disappears in  an instant in one place could be totally unrelated to the Ashley that reappears in the same instant in another, apart from being identical. (ship of thebes arguments notwithstanding)

I believe the reason we agreed on is that the past is a concept, nothing more. Trying to travel to the past is like trying to travel to pie (not as in a pie, as in, literally, pie).

Wait, how does metatemporality work in this setting? I've just been assuming the non-linear relationship of time and the Dreaming meant that, in this setting, Indigenous Australian deities were more eldritch than usual in addition to the whole, murder-poison ability bit.

Also, who was Jesus? Were they the son of Shys'm Caes and the Virgin Mary who died upon the cross for humanity's sins? Or were they a grizzly bear of beer with a penchant for closed room murder?

Why would they even have a marketing department? They were part of their state's military.
Figurative marketing department. It's the same kind of guys who make sure that DARPA's projects don't come off as bad sci-fi plots and make sure that their acronyms don't have unfortunate implications.
Stuff like that is more obscure in that world, plus though they're called that, they're generally referred to as "anti-personnel constructs" or "ethereal magic specialists".
You're kinda missing the point. You were asking why they would have those kinds of people in the military; I pointed out that the military, especially the R&D bits, do have pretty important PR divisions.

Yeah, Did not think that Rag would want to break the cutie again right when he came back.
FTFY.

If what Cyrielle saw in Selina's mind a while back is any indication, she's utterly terrified at the prospect of rape. This isn't too good for her mental health.
Dunno. Seems like a healthy fear of rape would be a non-bad thing.
Phobia, that's another thing.

((Not really, it cuts off the brain's directives and replaces it with Cyrielle's pathetic attempts to mimic the brain.))
We really need to figure out how to route control to Will. Maybe via bracelets.

No, not really, she receives and sends but there is no real interpretation happening. She can't decode it into anything remotely meaningful.
So, it's kinda like a Chinese Minecraft player who doesn't read a word of Engligh playing Dwarf Fortress?

Timezones don't work that way.
Ashley should have logically experienced a week in the void no matter what and...
Yes, but in this case Alice would have aged and experienced a week unless something made her not.
And in this case Bob would also have experienced a week from his point of view unless something made him not.
Do you see why this doesn't make sense?
You're almost a century behind the times, bud. And that's without magic.

But she is unable to tell the difference between the time that passed in the void and outside. Therefore unless something happened to cause her to experience the difference in time she would only experience a week in the void.
...Why?

Yes but Alice ages unlike Ashley. Ashley ages purely due to thinking she should. If she thinks she was in the void for a week she ages a week.
Ashley ages exactly as much as she wants to. And who wants to be a teenager with a ten-year-old daughter?
And why is Void-time less real to Ashley than Creation-time?

Shh, logic come first.
When Void is stated to ignore logic.
And when your "logic" is another trope...

In any event, I assume that at least one rule exists, directly or indirectly: you cannot travel backwards in Creation time by taking a hop through Void. Doing that would lead to all sorts of problems, grandfather paradoxes, and what have you.
That's not an assumption. It's the truth.
I believe the reason we agreed on is that the past is a concept, nothing more. Trying to travel to the past is like trying to travel to pie (not as in a pie, as in, literally, pie).
You can, however, travel to a specific pie. Can you travel to a specific past?

Also, who was Jesus? Were they the son of Shys'm Caes and the Virgin Mary who died upon the cross for humanity's sins? Or were they a grizzly bear of beer with a penchant for closed room murder?
...Grizzly bear?
Anyways, if you want and no Christians complain, I could list a number of reasons why "there was no Jesus" is an entirely valid option.

((Why the hell doesn't Yuri have antimagic fields?))
They're traditional. They've been doing stuff for thousands of years, and magical things have only lately started to become an issue.

((I call bullshit.
I have one at 3 am.))
The world isn't flat, Allegedly-Sentient Bowtie. There's more than one time zone.

((Currently in bad mood. People keep requesting I write something for my fanfic I've already said no to twice. And then spam the requests for it anyway.

Fucking fan dumb.))
Hey Elf, why don't you write something for your fanfic?

Honestly Kyle would have a HELL of a time keeping his eyes off her.
Naturally. She's a female and not deformed.
Also, what the hell is an ertophage? Google comes up with ten results. One is you, half are in assorted foreign languages, and three are in alleged English. Actually, the last page gives a decent explanation. ...Well then.

((@GWG for arguing :P))
...
Goddammit if I argue against that I'm proving you right.

((Sexy!Yuri's throne room apparently.))
((Japan. Balls. If it was Australia, Rainbow Serpent would've come in by now. WHY CAN'T YOU BE IN NORWAY SO FREYA CAN TEACH YOU WHO IS BIGGEST SLUT))
((Am I supposed to understand why only Norway or Australia have gods that give a fuck?))
Because Elf doesn't know much about Japanese gods, presumably.

Preeeetty much, though she's not actually a succubus.

That's just religions assuming that all things that feed on sex are the same thing for some reason.

Gurgle is a small slime girl that Mimi like to hug and play with her hair.

Oozy is much bigger, and is Gurgle's mother. They like to get on your head and pretend to be hats.
