Shiveapedia

This Timeline for El Goonish Shive is based on information provided by its author, Dan Shive, and is intended to make it easier to get a sense of how the plot and characters have progressed since the comic began.[1] In February 2, 2010, Shive acknowledged the timeline in an in-comic Q&A session. In the commentary, he declared that, short of finding a flaw, he considers it canon.[2] At that time, the page looked like this, and subsequent edits have not necessarily been vetted accordingly.

By looking at the dates given, one can conclude that the comic begins in 2013, as this is the only year with the right approximate technology where, for instance, May 24 and March 29 are Fridays. 2002, the year EGS was first published in, also has the correct day-date pairings, but the technology and cultural references used in later comics aren't consistent with that time. This being a fictional universe, of course, it cannot be ruled out. 2019 would also fit the established days, but would make any arcs from Family Tree onward take place in 2020, a leap year that wouldn't have the correct dates beyond Saturday, February 29.

The only thing Shive would originally say was that the comic takes place in the 21st century.[3] Later, however, he admitted that it must take place before Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015) but after the Star Trek reboot (2009),[4] pretty much proving the year is 2013, barring alternate universe logic. However, Elliot and Susan reviewed Guardians of the Galaxy,[5] which came out August 1st, 2014.

Note that since Identity, Dan decided to avoid giving any exact dates, using "next day" and "Thursday" instead. Dan has said that he finds exact dates limiting due to the possibility of plot holes.[6] Starting with Brother, the comic doesn't even reveal days of the week, making it unclear how many days pass between the storylines. For NP storylines, it has always been only rarely revealed when they take place relative to the main storylines.

How much screentime each day gets varies, see Time progress extremes.

Things that happen at night are listed as whichever day is more convenient.
