Anachronos' Journey: The Timeless Heir
Anachronos' Journey is your typical fantasy tale, with a "nice" detail. Time-travel will be heavily involved, which will allow the story to jump between different places and timelines easily, changing the setting with each arc, and giving some variety.
Nozdormu appoints his heir for a travel across time, to test his abilities, as well as investigate some mysterious rifts and alterations in the timeline. Anachronos will eventually meet the infinite dragons, who are wreaking havoc across the existence, and he will have to stop them.

Musings (scroll down and ignore if you want to start reading)
Whoa, my first public fanfic :P. So, what can you expect from this? First of all, I wanted to write something about time-travel and bronze dragons since some time ago (no pun intended). I had sketches and whatnot, about bronze dragons chasing infinite dragons across the timelines, in an endless journey.
Finally, I decided to use Anachronos, being the heir of Nozdormu and all. He would travel in time and correct the timelines, and defeat the infinites and their allies, most of the time people moved outside of their time by the infinites so they wreak havoc around, while they eat popcorn and watch the show.
But it was just that, an idea. However, today I got some inspiration, and I already have some basic idea on what to write, and how. Unfortunately, it was a bit "boring", and it needed something more, so I tried introducing dragonsworns in each event, mortals that helped Anachronos and were appointed as Time Watchers, but it didn't work too well, so instead, I'm going to use a gang of time-travelers, from criminals to collateral victims, that join Anachronos, and he, aside from repairing timelines, must bring them back to their places.
And yes, expect Doctor Who jokes all along, but I promise I won't abuse. I may inspire a bit on it on the group themes, but I initially thought all of this before I knew wtf the series was (in fact, I planned to submit this for the penultimate writing contest, but I didn't finish it on time). If you read detective novels usually, you may discover some references around, too.
Well, let's start! Chapters will usually be short, but I will try to post often . This is just an introduction to see reactions and where this could go:
Introduction: Morning sunlight
Tanaris, first years of peace after the Third War.
The morning sun was bathing the sands of Tanaris. Atop a hill, a bronze dragon watched over the landscape, fascinated at how the light slowly advanced through the dunes, banishing the darkness from the land.
As the last shadows of the desert vanished into the day, the fluttering of another of his kind made him turn east, back to where the sun rose each morning, and back to where his dragonflight made their home.
“Early riser as always, my son” smiled the female, landing near him. “I never miss the first rays of sunlight, and I couldn’t live without the vigor their warmth gives me” smiled the son. She followed his eyes, and sighed. “And always your vigil ends to the west, to that cursed city…”
Ahn’Qiraj. The name of the cursed city froze his veins, and then pure rage and hatred shattered the ice and burnt across his body. Ten thousand years ago, blue, green, red and bronze dragons joined the night elves against the qiraji, an evil force trying to consume the world. They “won”, more or less. The qiraji threat was unstoppable, and so, he himself, together with the night elf druid, sealed the city and froze the terrors inside, until some day they would be able to finally defeat them for good. Many died during the war, and some were trapped alive inside the city together with the qiraji. If only he hadn’t refused to help in the first place...
“Anachronos” his mother spoke his name, concern on her eyes. His attention came back to the present. “The sun always banishes the darkness in its path, but it won’t ever banish the darkness of that accursed place” replied her. “The mortals have signed the end of the Third War, you should rejoice at the present, and forget the past”. “My past and my future are my present, mother, as are yours and any other bronze dragons’”. “Oh, come on... no, it’s my fault for asking” smiled at him, and he smiled back at her.
She turned serious again. “Your father wants to speak with you, it’s important”.
