People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually* from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff. ~ The Doctor

Everyone knows what happened to Ace McShane. She's the one who, backed by one of the most unconventional Time Lords of ever, proved an entire super-advanced race wrong in regards to the worth of humans, giving them all a (figuratively, at least) supremely rude gesture as she did so. She's the one that ended up in the Time War, using her non-traditional views of piloting TARDISes to make for some very bad days for the Dalek armies. She's the one that fell into a bar at the end of the universe when she was still kinda sorta on the borderline of legal drinking age (depending on where you were from) and formed a life there as well, finding love and friends and family and a whole lot of fights to be in. She's the one who gladly traded the name McShane for Witherspoon, and somehow ended up with kids, and somehow that didn't cause the universe to collapse on itself. She's the one with a really cute dog.

She's the one who stumbled home in the middle of the end of the universe with her brain and emotions and sense of time scrambled like an egg thanks to the stresses of a dimensions-twisting war between two powerful opponents and a complete lack of concern for acceptable safety standards on her part. She's the one who hitched a ride home with her not-really-a-god-except-how-he-kinda-is brother and confused the hell out of a pack of werewolves except for the part where they knew that sort of thing entirely too well.

Everyone knows what happened to Ace.

Except the part where they're wrong.

Except how, in another version of the same events, the TARDIS never kicked the tweenager companion into a dimensional pocket at the end of the universe and she kind of stared at the Professor like he was growing a second head when he mentioned Gallifrey and she never actually ever got a dog.

Except how, eventually, she realized that she wasn't actually going to go on following this mad, wonderful, amazing person around forever because that's not what she was supposed to do - she waited until they had pulled someone else into that world, and then carefully bowed out.

(No she didn't, she got in a raging fight and then went to go blow up some Daleks. A lot. Earned a bit of a name for it.)

She also went in for a second round, and she finally called him Doctor and he called her McShane and at one point there was a nurse that she roped in to their madcap life and he spent a lot of the time denying the obvious, which she thought was hilarious.

She still doesn't like the name Dorothy.

She still carries enough explosives on her to take out a small country.

She still adores the coat (though she has accepted that perhaps variety is the spice of life).

Wibbly wobbly, time-y wimey..... stuff.
