i've been thinking about this for weeks and no amount of googling has helped.

i suddenly remembered a plot from something i watched years ago. unfortunately, no identifiable details are clear to me (character appearance, location, era, et cetera) and i can't even remember if it was a film or television program.

one character finds a piece of jewellery (a necklace? a ring? something else?) made of metal. this item is the exact same shape as their friends' birth mark. it's a really weird coincidence. the resemblance is exact, and it's a very distinct shape. they buy it for this reason. the two characters are amused and weirded out by this very strange coincidence.

later, the owner of that item travels back in time, and meets their birthmark'd friends' parents. said friend is also present, as a baby.

somehow, the baby gets burned by the item, meaning their birth mark was actually a scar from this burn. a burn from an item their friend wouldn't have even owned if that burn hadn't happened in the first place. a paradox.

i don't think this was The Plot of whatever it was, just a sort of fun paradox thrown in at the beginning and end because time travel writers cannot resist paradoxes.

i have been trying for ages and i CANNOT find whatever this was. did i make it up? it feels like such an obvious plot, like it's probably been done before, yet strangely i can't find any examples of it, not even "same plot, wrong film" or something.

does anyone have any idea what i'm talking about?

That sounds really really familiar. The time travel aspects remind me a bit of a book I read years and years ago (and forgot most of the plot of) called The Magic Half but I don't think that's it since it's not a movie or show, one of the friends lives IN the past and the main character goes back in time to befriend her, and the necklace doesn't ring a bell. But there were time traveling friends with unlikely connections, from what I recall.

This whole plotline sounds like some weird mix of Meet the Robinsons and Harry Potter. I dont think I recognize the movie the plots from though

Maybe an episode of some Twilight Zone-like series?

there is a non-zero chance it's actually a book and i just remember it as being on a screen. however, i don't think it's this book: it doesn't look familiar to me at all. (though now i'm curious anyway...)

i don't think i've seen meet the robinsons. can you remember which harry potter book you're thinking of? i know they had time-turners in the third and...fifth? books?

Maybe an episode of some Twilight Zone-like series?

ugh. you could be right, i watch a lot of those sort of things. could even be twilight zone itself. i'll look up some lists of episodes on wikipedia and see if anything rings a bell.
