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?
No, because pie has actual instances of pies. Past is a concept only.

Good job Icarus. You made a child cry for doing his job.

Why is IRIS using a child in the first place? You'd think a shadowy conspiracy would hire people who are more likely to cope with what happens on the job.

I'll be here tomorrow and especially this weekend. Summer is closing in though, I just have to get past finals this week.

Because the replacement was busy with everyone else.

So they hired a child?

How do people construct magic circles anyway? Do they freehand it? Engrave with magic? Use an oversized compass? Large cardboard stencils?

Lunette has been doing hers freehand, more or less.

Very, very carefully.

Or, you know, what PrivateNomad said.

No. The child was right there and they could easily walk him through it.

Very, very carefully.
So freehand?
What's it drawn in? Pencil or something erasable? Or something less erasable and more frustrating?
Could you draw it in MS Paint and have it work or print it out on a piece of paper?
What if you saved the image onto a phone, could the photo be used?
Do any of them have activation glows that cause epileptic seizures?
Can they be drawn via automaton?
Do they have a use-by date?
Can their individual components be drawn on transparent sheets as so that someone carries a modular unit around?
If it's projected onto something, is the original used up?
Can you spike someone's drink with them by etching them on the cup/glass/ice cubes/froth?
Does it have to be visible, or can you then cover it with concrete?
Could you scribble over one after activating but not using it and have it remain usable?
How much does the average magic circle user spend per year on drawing equipment?
Can they be mailed to a target in a similar manner to anthrax?
Does the size of the circle always matter?
Could a circle drawn microscopically small on tiny wafers and stacked onto similar wafers like some sort of murderous microchip with magic murder ellipses instead of transistors?

I can give you a short answer:

it's magic

Still, is the iCircle, inscription upon cups/coffee or murderous microchip option viable?

First off, I do not condone anything they did :|

Secondly, it's an entire race that feeds off of that. It would make sense for them to have a completely different view of what the rules for it are. Hell, she probably saw it as a kind of wish-fulfilment for her, since Yuri is probably not going to have ANY chance to do that sort of thing in the near future and Selina wanted it.
I understand all that. However, having a plot based off rape is something that makes many of us deeply unsettled.

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?
No, because pie has actual instances of pies. Past is a concept only.
Hardly. There are specific pasts. Five minutes ago, fifteen, an hour ago, last week, two years ago, the last time I went to the planetarium, the Renaissance...

Still, is the iCircle, inscription upon cups/coffee or murderous microchip option viable?
Depends. How do magic circles work, anyways? Why is one given collection of lines and curves magical, but another isn't?

@Cado waits for GWG to post again.
GWG is filming. Was, whatever. Then KSP, then other threads, now this.

((inb4 its the chili and Alice is just a big whuzz))
"It's... It's all... all my... my fault." She said between sobs
No, no, it's not your fault. ICARUS is just a terrible chef.

"Anything less than the whole thing would just not be right. I want it all. The terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles. You should never hide such a thing from me."

((yes, homer simpson quote. the dude's a poet))
Wrong Homer.
But yeah, he has some gems.

ICARUS leaves and gives the guy from the IRIS support hotline a very, very angry call about the anti-magic trinkets being late. That mans day is definetly ruined. Chances are 90% that he will come home to beat his wife, who will beat the kids, who will bully a smaller kid, who will then beat up a puppy. That puppy may grow up seeking vengeance.
