Season 8 Timeline

I was super efficient today and not only did I do my laundry, I also finished the S8 timeline.

It is now posted: Season 8 timeline.

I've also greated a Timeline Master Post, because I was sick of not having just one post to link people to. So,  if you want to check it out and/or bookmark it for future reference, knock yourself out.

Off to go update the links at the SuperWiki now... and possibly have dinner first, because it IS 11pm. (I've been having sleep/neighbour issues this week)

For those wondering about the idiosyncrasies of different seasons - I will tell you that this season ignored driving-times more than any other season has. It's like after seven years, the writers just decided to say "f*ck it!" and now Dean and Sam can make a 7 hour drive in 10 minutes. :P

Also, for anyone concerned about the large number of "unknown" dates towards the end of the season - sometimes those get cleared up when the new season starts, so it might just be a case of waiting until the fall. That being said, a lot of the time the timeline-continuity also gets super screwed up when they start a new season, so it may also get worse. We'll all just have to cross our fingers.

ETA: Also, as per usual, if you see a mistake in the timeline, let me know! I'm only human.

I am still reading through your massive timeline. WOW! what an awesome job you did. Of course there will be unknown dates. Nature of the show. It would be nice if we had a better idea when things happened, but at least we know the approximate month with the end of each season.

You're only human!!!!! That can't be. Seriously, with the capability of putting this together (and your clothes could talk posts) I would think you would at least be Super Human. ;)

Haha, thanks!

A lot of the time those unknown dates are cleared up in the next season... but we'll see! From a fanfiction point of view, it's sometimes nice to have some unknown dates, because then you can juggle things around a bit and squeeze in your own stories. ;)

Let's hope that some dates will get cleared up with next season. But, totally agree, it is nice to have some flexibility for the fan fic writers. I have read numerous fics where the author was able to take that exact license with the timeline, and still stay true to Canon. How awesome is that, right?!
