With the time travel effect, I had two options: Uniqueness and Consistency. If I made a whole new effect, it would have been unique, but less consistent. If I went for consistency - and I did. It would have been more consistent but less unique - also a bit lazier. But this is a sprite comic. Copy-pasting sprites is basically the bread and butter of sprite comics. Looking back, I don't know why I specificially needed to illustrate the concept of being lazy - or, less cynically, "work smart, not hard."
