Fractures in Time and Space
A fracture is a period or place in space and time that split into multiple routes/paths.
The Cause: A powerful individual is torn between multiple paths or decisions in time. They must have a strong desire to resist or change the events of the present.
The Result: When a fracture occurs, the 'present' timeline is split into two routes.
Route A is the 'present' timeline.
The fracture occurs.
Now, both Routes A and B exist, and both lead to different futures.
1) There is no linear time in Grims' Truth. The publication/release order and writing order differ from the chronological order. However, within the confines of the Mortal Realms, even Etheral Beings must abide by time-based laws. Note: Time Elementals are an exception, but they still have rules and laws.

2) It is illegal to reverse someone's death. i.e: if a time elemental watched their peer die and tried to undo it, this would send out a universal signal that would result in immediate erasure.
3) A being that has been erased will fall into what is referred to as the Ripples of Time, not to be confused with Echoes. The meaning behind this terminology is essentially that once a being has been erased, it takes time for the ripple to move throughout all of space and time, hence that being begins to try and escape the inevitable. This is especially common with Time Elementals who have broken laws and use their ability to jump and hide between fragments of time. However, accidentally jumping into the wrong fragment can also lead to immediate erasure.
