Timeline now includes S6

I have posted the Season 6 timeline!

I only really briefly went through the last three episodes, so if anyone has any quibbles about my statements on those, let me know! Actually, if anyone has any quibbles about anything let me know - I'm an imperfect being after all, so I may have missed something or made a false logical leap somewhere. This is the first year I haven't waited for the DVDs as well, so usually I have more time to painstakingly comb through the episode and take screen caps and whatnot - so, yeah, everything is subject to change, I guess.

The preseries timeline has a new date at the very beginning. S1-S5 timeline remains unchanged.

The Great Continuity Mistake of 2010/2011 - after my last poll about the continuity mistake the writers and art department had made regarding the year, a good many of you suggested I take a baseball-card approach to recording dates. 
And I have - all dates are as they appear on show. Meaning, that if you want to be logical, you should ADD a year to all dates in the S6 timeline. Those dates marked with an * are from "the year that wasn't" - meaning they are events that occurred during the 2010/2011 year that Sam spent in the cage, as opposed to the second 2010/2011 year in which S6 took place.
My favourite explanation for this is by monicawoe , who suggested: “The brothers have messed up fate and destiny and now time itself. They've traveled to so many pasts that they have caused a paradox. This mixed with angel mojo (which reacts oddly when in such close proximity to Sam's demon blood) has caused time to fold in on itself.”)

That being said, I may still write that Doctor Who crack-crossover fic.... ;)

Crossover crack doctor who FIIIIIIIC. Yes. I like to think that Amy or Rory accidentally fell on a lever or spilled a soda or something and then are all, "oops. But it's fine, right?" And the Doctor is all, "yes, totally fine, well, except that 2011 now happened twice, but come along, let's move on before someone comes round to complain."

I need the crack. (I just watched the latest episode and there was something in it that has just horrified me at such a deep level I'm fighting the urge to just shudder forever. The unfortunate thing is that I seem to be the only person that reacted to that particular thing that way.)

Hahaha, oh man, I think you might be better at writing the crack-crossover than I would/will be!

I haven't seen the latest episode yet - but it's the continuation of the Flesh right? Some of the visuals in first episode horrified me - I'm a little reluctant to watch the second.

If it makes you feel better, it wasn't even the Flesh that hit me so hard. And the thing that horrified me- I've read every review I can get my hands on, and not ONE of them even mentioned it. So maybe it's just me.

However, the episode was well worth watching for the Doctor if nothing else.

I'll probably download and watch it either tonight or tomorrow! I'll let you know when I do and you can tell me which part horrified you - because now I'm curious. ;)
May. 29th, 2011 06:40 am (UTC)
Alright, I've seen it now - which was the part that horrified you? I think there was plenty to chose from myself. :P

The childbirth thing. Maybe I just have a squick for it? It was like so layers. First, realizing your life was a dream and actually the nightmare was real. Two, waking up in a strange place trapped in a small room, having no control and someone looking in at you. Three, and most importantly, waking up 9 months PREGNANT, with no time to adjust to the notion, and even worse, going into labor. That's some serious body horror right there. Have you ever watched those time lapse pregnancy videos on youtube? It's like the thing from Alien. Miracle life turned into screaming horror because there's no slow adjustment, just the frank awareness that your body is distorting, it's out of your control, you don't know what's going on, you're in pain, and there are all these people who are doing things to you and not acknowledging you as a person.

AIIGGHHHHHHHHHHHhhhh. (I may have read too many stories of birth trauma back when that was an Issue being argued over on a lot of blogs. It tapped into a lot of things I'm already kind of freaked out by).
May. 29th, 2011 07:46 am (UTC)
Oh man! I also found that horrifying, though it was more an instinctual thing rather than an conscious reaction. I nearly stopped the episode completely, because I just suddenly thought "I don't like this!" even though I was at the same time horribly confused and trying to figure out what was going on and when Amy could have possibly been replaced etc...

I really don't like pregnancy stuff. There's a lot of that on those anon-kinkmemes for various fandoms - and I don't really understand those who have a kink for it - but you know, I try not to judge, because I'm sure they'd be horrified with some of the stuff that I like reading.

But yeah, that was possibly the most unsettling ending for a doctor who episode ever. Though, it does leave me wanting to see next week's...mind you, it's because I want to see The Doctor and Rory have an episode together without Amy, and they probably won't give me that - it'll probably all be Amy's pov. Ah well.

I'm kind of looking forward to the next episode? With a huge mix of dread for reasons discussed earlier. I don't really want the whole pregnancy horror, it's too scary. Also, River! Cliffhangers! Bad things happening! But I saw the trailer. Um? Minor spoiler?

Spoiler space.
It had Roman!Rory. Well, Rory running around in the centurion outfit. And being all fierce.

And apparently I've got a wicked thing for it. Very random, I know.
May. 29th, 2011 08:34 am (UTC)
Ok, just ran off to see the trailer, because I hadn't found it yet...

Mmm...Roman!Rory. I fully approved of the part of that episode where they were roleplaying on their honeymoon. I have a thing for Rory in general, so I'm horribly biased on all fronts.

And River! That's exciting. This storyline is very complicated and I'm wondering how it's all going to work out in the end.

I love Rory. I like Amy, good character, decent actress, but I enjoy Rory and the Doctor the most.

And that part a while ago where the two of them sit and have that conversation about Rory remembering his two thousand years? Yummy. I had a sudden realization of what it must be like to be one of those kink-driven fans (you know, the ones that have a thing for the characters being unconscious or hugging or eyefucking or being evil) because I enjoyed it more than it deserved. I was like, "oh, so apparently that's a thing for me. Secretly remembering your past life as an immortal plastic roman soldier. Huh. I bet that's not a button that's going to be pushed very often."

So yes. Um. I guess that's a very long way of saying I agree with you, especially about the honeymoon thing. And really, who could blame Amy. You know, he's lucky she just doesn't insist he wear it all the time. (I'm not even sure WHY he looks so damn cool in it. I'm a classicist- I've already got an academic kink for the Romans. Maybe that's it?)
May. 29th, 2011 06:45 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I like Rory and the Doctor the most too. I think Rory adds an interesting dynamic (and has an interesting relationship with the Doctor), because he didn't choose to be there. Rory chose Amy, and Amy chose the Doctor, which means that Rory and the Doctor are with each other even if they wouldn't have necessarily ever chosen to be.

"oh, so apparently that's a thing for me. Secretly remembering your past life as an immortal plastic roman soldier. Huh. I bet that's not a button that's going to be pushed very often."

Haha, no, not likely to be pushed very often. I don't know if I have any buttons like that - though, I did love that scene too.

I don't know why Rory is so dang hot in that Roman outfit either - I'm not even a classicist! I studied ancient Greek literature, but that's about it. Maybe it's just the old pretty boys in military uniform thing...only, I'm VERY picky when it comes to my military uniforms? :P
May. 29th, 2011 09:11 pm (UTC)
Maybe it's the cape? And the breastplate. He was made for it. Every other outfit, he's looked a bit funny in, but in that, yowza. (Well, he also looked pretty good in his security guard uniform too. Maybe it's a uniform thing.)

Just wait and see! They'll finally get Jeffrey Dean Morgan back on at the end of season 7 and that won't be a problem logically because by then the brothers will be living back in 2002!

Also - Your work is awe inspiring and you are amazing for putting all this together!
May. 29th, 2011 12:09 am (UTC)
Hahaha... and then Lord help us all :P

Also - thank you! *blushes*
May. 29th, 2011 04:21 am (UTC)
Y'know, I think it might actually be *better* if space-time starts to break down, given what's happened in the last few eps... but I'm partial to that brand of sci-fi anyway.
May. 29th, 2011 04:24 am (UTC)
It would break my brain though! :P

I'm not judging the storyline of the last few episodes until I see where the plot goes in S7, methinks.

I prefer to keep my time-paradoxes to Doctor Who. I kind of like how in Supernatural all their time-travel has been closed-loops.
May. 29th, 2011 09:12 pm (UTC)
Bellatemple did a really fantastic BB along those lines. I could go for some timey-wimey confusion in SPN.

Fringe has had a bit of fun with that, too.
