I THINK this would be the schedule, then:

January 25 (Friday) 1: Goo created, fought for the first time.
January 26(Saturday) 2: Sarah, Tedd and Elliot go to the movies. Enter Grace.
January 27 (Sunday) 3: Elliot and Sarah meet Grace. Sarah and Grace go clothes shopping.
January 28 (Monday) 4: Elliot Takes Sarah to Martial arts class. Much awkwardness.
January 29 (Tuesday) 5: Tedd V5's Elliot. Elliot and Sarah officially start going out...I believe.
January 30 (Wednesday) 6: Elliot goes to School as Ellen. Elliot and Tedd travel to PTTAOLUTASF. Ellen Created.
January 31 (Thursday) 7: The goo fight, and the resolution of "Sister"
February 2 (Saturday) 9: Justin and Nanase at the Comic shop
February 7 (Thursday) 14: Lady Mysterious

Oh no! They're repeating March 11th over and over again!

Somebody call Bill Murray. He'll know what to do!

He will? I didn't think he had any clue of what was happening and why even at the end of that movie.

Psh, the character didn't. The actor read the script, so he must know how they recycled days for the movie. It's like a dragon; the actors know where it came from.

Both Bill Murray and Groundhog Day kick ass.

Especially Bill Murray.

I used the awesome power of "edit post" to correct my error.

Hi,

I just wanted to say "Thanks!" to everyone who has helped out on this thread so far, as it has helped to nail down one sun-sign (Grace) for the cast in a thread I created earlier.

Great work, everyone! (Maybe one day soon I'll get back to that list of mine... adding the timeline dates to it to "fill in the blanks".)

Later On,
D

EDIT: with the date for Ellen's "creation" also set, that gives us a second sign, but Dan has had something to say about this...

Later On,
D

Actually you could work it backwards a bit more, and have MLK fall in a blank week(or two) between Red Alert and Uniform Announcement, as getting 6 thousand uniforms in less than 5 days just seems...

I mean, weresquirrels, aliens, magic statues, absent minded immortals? Fine. Getting a bureaucracy to do ANYTHING in less than a week? Totally unbelievable.

Also, that leaves time for the NPS stories Magic Comic Shop and Not A Date At The Mall to happen, otherwise they take place on the same day as Grace's Birthday party, which is a little odd.

Leaving a few spaces for future retcons doesn't seem like a bad idea, either.

To really make it work, you'd probably have to consider Moping Squirrel to take place after Intro To South, though.

That gives us a timeline of:


January 11 (Friday) 1: Goo created, fought for the first time.
January 12(Saturday) 2: Sarah, Tedd and Elliot go to the movies. Enter Grace.
January 13 (Sunday) 3: Elliot and Sarah meet Grace. Sarah and Grace go clothes shopping.
January 14 (Monday) 4: Elliot Takes Sarah to Martial arts class. Much awkwardness.
January 15 (Tuesday) 5: Tedd V5's Elliot. Elliot and Sarah officially start going out...I believe.
January 16 (Wednesday) 6: Elliot goes to School as Ellen. Elliot and Tedd travel to PTTAOLUTASF. Ellen Created.
January 17 (Thursday) 7: The goo fight, and the resolution of "Sister"
January 19 (Saturday) 9: Justin and Nanase at the Comic shop
January 25 (Thursday) 14: Lady Mysterious
February 15 (Friday) 36: Ellen and Elliot's groups night out.
February 16 (Saturday) 37: Tam eh Tedd and Painted black (Busy day!)
February 17 (Sunday) 38: End of Painted black / Sleepy Time
February 18 (Monday) 39: Red Alert
February 23 (Saturday) 44: Magic Comic Shop/Not A Date at The Mall
March 6 (Wednesday) 53: School Uniforms Announced.
March 7 (Thursday) 54: Susan and Nanase conspire.
March 8 (Friday) 55: Uniform Pickup.
March 9 (Saturday) 56: Grace's Birthday Party.
March 10 (Sunday) 57: Aftershocks from Grace's Birthday Party.
March 11 (Monday) 58: Grace and Ellen's first day of school (and The Susan Pants Rebellion)
March 12 (Tuesday) 59: Elliot wakes up female[/quote]

I'm pretty sure the dreams started right before Red Alert, and lasted a week... So that makes that timeline a bit hard.

Crap, she does say last week.

Or does she?

I think that might be the only time reference though...

Magic Comic Shop and Not A Date At The Mall should take place the same day as Intro to South, which, by context, should still be the Monday after Painted Black. Another comic against adding a week between Red Alert and The Uniform Announcement is this one, making essentially the same point as Jake R (from Painted Black to Grace's Birthday - a week, vs. at Grace's Birthday, Ellen reveals her dreams that started last week, after Painted Black).

I always considered Magic Comic Shop as taking place on a Saturday. Mention is made of hours passing after Ellen arrives, and I don't know how many of those you could fit between the end of a full school day and closing time while the mall is still open. Mostly, it just gives me a definite 'all day' feel.

Dr. S's comment is hard to work with... though it's possible he misremembered the date due to the stress of being kidnapped and all. Really. Days can seem like weeks when you're being held prisoner. What? It could happen![/Judy Tenuta]

Well, it not important, though the extra 2 weeks would make logistical sense, add a chronological buffer for Dan, and give more off panel relationship development time.

The Comic Shop/Not A Date happening on a Monday has too issues. One, as Daremo said, it does seem that they spent hours there. The other is that the Amine Martial Arts classes are normally held on Mondays, though if the class is large enough it could take place on multiple days.
