Timeline Update

Thanks to everybody for suggestions, edits etc. A complete update of the Kerfuffle Timeline is now on the permanent page here https://camestrosfelapton.wordpress.com/the-puppy-kerfuffle-timeline/

I’ll continue to make corrections and tweaks as needed but I’m calling the story complete at this point.

Draft Timeline Update

This is the draft of Hugo 2016 section of the Puppy Kefuffle Timeline. Once this section is done, I’ll call the timeline done and complete. Any further events, kefuffles etc won’t be included on this timeline.

Suggestions, edits, typo-corrections all welcome. The interval between slates/lists being announced and the nominations being announced is a bit lacking in events. I haven’t included much on the 3SV and EPH+ discussions yet either.

Kerfuffle Timeline Part 2: The First Act

The previous part (Prelude and Prologue) is here https://camestrosfelapton.wordpress.com/2015/08/19/very-draft-kerfuffle-timeline-prelude-to-kerfufflation/ Thanks for the feedback and I’m fixing things up.

Same caveats apply.

This is literally a narrative as it is a story shown over time with a plot and complications but it is also a subjective mapping of headspace. It looks more serious than my map but the same caveats apply – it is how I perceive the kerfuffle and while it is made out of truthful bricks (I believe) the structure itself is a fabricated thing. Same warnings about false balance apply and also the timeline has the issue of stirring up old arguments.

Suggestions and corrections are welcome within the limit of not wanting to re-kerfuff old kerfuffles and certainly not wanting to re-open old wounds.

Very draft: Kerfuffle timeline – Prelude to Kerfufflation

urrggghhh it is like a box of recursive kerfuffles. An attempt map out a timeline has got plagued with having to keep going back to prior to 2015 to include things that people refer back to during the kerfuffle. So to answer why ‘rabid’ or why ‘evil league of evil’ and so on we have to search back to the theft of the Silmarils or the landing of the Fir Bolg.

So firstly – this IS a narrative. It is literally a narrative as it is a story shown over time with a plot and complications but it is also a subjective mapping of headspace. It looks more serious than my map but the same caveats apply – it is how I perceive the kerfuffle and while it is made out of truthful bricks (I believe) the structure itself is a fabricated thing. Same warnings about false balance apply and also the timeline has the issue of stirring up old arguments.

Suggestions and corrections are welcome within the limit of not wanting to re-kerfuff old kerfuffles and certainly not wanting to re-open old wounds.
