I’ve had a few confused readers ask questions about the timeline of the story. This doesn’t shock me in the slightest; I totally understand that the multiple timelines jumping all over the place isn’t exactly easy to follow.

Anyways, I wrote this basic timeline that should hopefully help make understanding the story easier. I will try to keep it updated.

SPOILER WARNING: I would highly suggest that you only read this if you are up to date with the story. If you read this without reading the story first, you will ruin the whole thing for yourself.
