Reading this timeline will spoil you on the plot. If you want to read through the logs, use the links contained within them to read through in order of fiction chronology (the links next to the "Timeline" link) or in order that the scenes were played (that's the order of the numbering).


The vague consensus is: it's early May. Most of the cast is in it's junior year at Galileo High. The SAT (and Merope/Heka birthday party) was probably held on the first Saturday in May.

It is apparently 2008, although comic book time may apply.

  • Prom!


Are we juniors or seniors? Ras is pretty clearly a senior based on his statements in HSoS58. Merope claims to have turned 18 on her birthday on Saturday (and therefore Heka presumably did too) HSoS92. Yet the fact that we're nearly all taking SA Ts? seems to suggest this is junior year for most of us, plus I'm sure we did actually establish that somewhere. Possible resolution in that Merope and Heka are a year older than they ought to be, due to moving between school systems at some point in the past? We've vaguely decided to go with being juniors, at least for now

Was it Maia or Asterope (or both) that Yed planted test answers on in third grade?
