In an effort to keep things straight for me, as well as for the readers, I decided to come up with a time line for every story in each universe. I haven't specified a year that my stories are taking place.
|FIRST OF ALL: BOB WHITE AGES AT THE BEGINNING:|
ONE STEP AT A TIME:
This is set at the graduation of Trixie, Honey and Diana. So it's the end of May. Trixie celebrated her 18th birthday May 1st, and Mart has his coming up, although I didn't mention it.
This is set in August just before Jim and Brian leave for school again. Jim has 2 years left at this point.
I'M THANKFUL FOR YOU:
Obviously, set at Thanksgiving, a couple of months since Jim and Brian went back to school.
WEEKEND IN NEW ENGLAND:
This one is set in the spring of the next year. I thought April. When Jim finishes school in May he will have one year left.
ALL OF OUR TOMORROWS:
Took a jump here, and we moved 2 years into the future. It is early June. The premise is that Jim graduated, and immediately began construction on th e school. Now a year later, they have almost completed the school and are beginning the stables.
FEARS OF TOMORROW:
This began about a month after All of our Tomorrows. I didn't touch on July 4th so I thought of it as set right after. It spans about 2- 3 weeks, give or take a few days.
Set beginning in January after Fears... spans one night.
Set in February, as Trixie begins the wedding plans.
WITH YOU, I CAN DO ANYTHING:
Begins the same night as Perfection, ends April.
THE CLOSER WE GET
Begins in April, spans one day.
FROM THIS MOMENT
Begins two days before the May 13th wedding of Jim and Trixie. Spans one day, leaving off as Peter and Trixie begin down the aisle.
I LOVED HER FIRST
Spans just a moment or two on Trixie's wedding day.
This universe is slightly different. The Bob Whites ages are all relative to Jim's and here they are:
JIM: 26 RACHEL: 23
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT:
I set this one in the fall, September. Again, no specific year. It spans through Thanksgiving of the same year. Honey and Brian are already married as are Mart and Diana. Trixie is involved with Nick Roberts, and Dan is still searching for Ms. Right.
ALL ROADS AREN'T PAVED IN GOLD:
This one jumped a bit. It's Thanksgiving again. This time a year later. Can you tell it's my favorite holiday?? Jim and Rachel have been a couple and lovers for a year now.
Picks up where Roads leaves off. Spans just one day.
WILL YOU? I DO
This story spans five days- before and then during Jim and Rachel's wedding.
I WILL BE YOUR HERO:
Begins just before the Fourth of July holiday and spans through the first of September.
I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
Set at Christmas, right after Hero ended.
I NEED YOU
This spans one day; well, one day and night! It's still Christmas in Sleepyside.
