That great to hear Manimal! The majority of life is a mundane struggle, but learning to appreciate those little things and taking positives from even the most crappiest of situations is what makes us feel alive as humans. Keep on man! I hope forming that band finally works out for you.

I'm on the same boat as Coryn pretty much. Lost a lot of weight and got a lot of writing done in 2018. I'm looking to carry on that momentum into 2019 and improve on my consistency. Also, 2018 was the first year I actually felt good about my work. I want to feel like that all through 2019.

Ahhhhhh I see where I got confused now.

I was unaware that Dots was taking place while Lego was working on Dystop 2. Lego pretty much took ideas used in Dots as inspiration and applied them in Dystop 2.

Now that I understand the discrepancy, I'll be honest with you here. There's no way to completely clean this up as I'm sure you know already. Even if we go with your suggestion, the whole thing will still come off as messy. Especially to newer readers getting into the canon. However, damage control is damage control, and it's definitely needed in this case. Looking forward to your offical write up on this for the timeline doc. An update for that portion of the guide has been long overdue.

I'm still curious as to what Lego thinks of all this. This is his mess after all. Maybe he'll have some alternatives of his own.

Any questions?

After reading all of that I got thousands, but I'll stick with a few for now.

For starters, when a story starts and ends on a particular date in irl, is that the date we go with in canon? Even if the author intended the story to take place within a particular time frame? To clarify, let's go with The Strand of Truth and Drifter as examples. The Strand of Truth was posted and finished near the end of X017, with Drifter preceeding not long after it in March of X018 (Or whenever i posted that damn story). However, in actual canon, The Strand of Truth was written to take place sometime in X016, just before my real life hitaus from the forum, with Drifter taking place a year later. If we were to go by the "present" rule, then Drifter would take place in just few months after the strand of truth, which, in terms of story, wouldn't make sense since Drifter was written to serve as an explanation behind my character's disappearance during that time frame. I'm guessing this is partially the problem with Dystop as well, correct?

Secondly, If I read what you wrote correctly, Achan and Akan were officially introduced to the raiders in Dots??? How can that be if they already appeared near the end of Dystop 2? Shouldn't the raiders already know who they are? That part is really fuzzy to me. They appeared during the ecchiworld arc, right? I think I should reread that section, because now I'm feeling like I missed something.

And finally, 4kids goes bankrupt and rebrands when exactly? X011? X012? According to Lego, the rebrand happened long after the 4kCu undergone their mission, which I guess would be years after then? Of course, there's that time loop thing, which further complicates things. I don't know man. I'm really confused at this point.

I have no objections to any decisions made on your end regarding this matter. All I hope is that by the end of it this entire fiasco will finally make some damn sense.

Lego a soundcloud rapper? What timeline is this? :ohmy:

Not too bad there homie. You definitely got potential. I would work on flow and delivery for the most part. There were points where you were rapping off beat and kept on with it. Other than that, you're decent. Nice beat selection by the way.

I should rap more myself now that I think about it...   :-\

Bonus Post: Officially beginning my quest to read the entirety of Mortal Combat these next few weeks. Wish me luck people.

I'm down for this. Just gotta find time unfortunately. Maybe during lunch breaks at work would be best.

@Lego: If I can get my hands on a decent mic and some recording software I wouldn't mind man. It's been ages since I messed around on Fl studios. Made a lot of terrible things on that program, let me tell ya. Great memories though.

SLG=Swords like Gods, right? Yeah, I like that a lot myself.  Never got around to reading the cowboy story though.

The wiki thing will probably end up being my own personal venture then, since I wouldn't mind taking a crack at it and learning something new, even if there isn't much return. Fun fact: Reading character wikis used to be a big hobby of mine as a kid. It's probably why I got into writing in the first place, so my biases are probably showing.

However, if it's a index/reference list we're going with, then I'm down to help in any way I can. The canon is still fresh in my mind as far as stories read, but some rereading wouldn't hurt. If I did it once, I can do it again.

Yeah definitely. Since this is my idea I would spearhead this thing as the main writer and get it started by figuring out how to actually start a wiki page. Mahlua, if you're actually willing to help, I can see you as an editor of sorts. You can probably give input on page structure and things of that nature as well.

Of course, I think we all got enough projects on our own hands as it is, if you catch my drift. An official start on something like this would come at a much later date. Still though, it wouldn't hurt for me to get an early start on this. Hella research inbound.
