Chronology

Before writing about anything I should explain something about the chronology of the story.
There are three different orders of the seven chapters and three subchapters.

  1. The simple chronological order from I to VII in which the timeline slider will appear.
  2. The order in which I first imagined the story which I can’t completely recall myself.
  3. The narrative order and the very reason I created this post.

So, the narrative order in which I would want my books to appear (if I ever really write them) would be:

  • Chapter III
  • Chapter IV
  • Chapter V
  • Chapter I
  • Subchapters I & II
  • Chapter VI
  • Chapter VII

The reason for that is that I actually started writing my story with chapter III, the story of Lucy, my persona. Chapter IV & V are directly attached to III, together they build the adventure arc. At the end of chapter V, the turning point of the story takes place, the so-called “great catastrophe”.
So we bounce back 1000 years to the story of chapter I and the two subchapters (which are short stories about two very important characters). They tell about the very beginning of the universe itself. Like, literally. Chapter I takes place only 16 years after the creation of the world.
With all that lore fresh in mind we jump back forward 80 years after the great catastrophe. A new generation, a new setting and ready for the big finale. In chapter VI & VII all paths finally fall together and not even I know how that will end (yet).
You may have noticed that neither chapter II nor subchapter III are mentioned in the narrative order. Chapter II is simply replaced by tales within the adventure arc and subchapter III somehow merged with chapter VI.

So whenever I say “at the very beginning of the story” I probably refer to chapter III instead of I. I’ll try to make that as clear as possible when writing story posts. Also, posts will be tagged with the associated chapter. But note that I’ll probably write chapter III-V content as if you know nothing about the chapters before.

Have fun trying to understand my very confusing lore xD
