    I'll try as best I can to include what i can find.

    Sorry for skipping the last 2 months- was mid research on the post-Wheel/VQ era when some opportunities arose that killed my free time. I'm hoping to get some ground made up this week before the next semester starts, however.

    Well, that didn't happen :p

    I've had a reading-heavy semester (Networking Essentials [face_hypnotized]) , which has killed most of the time I'd spend reading other things. I've made incremental progress but nothing ready for a full update yet.

    As always, I'm hoping to catch up on it soon (though an upcoming move has necessitated me packing up a lot of my stuff so the non-Marvel/YA content will be boxed for a few weeks), but given that we're several months behind at this point (including being near the key 6 mABY Yavin evac date) I figured I'd ask you guys what you'd like me to do with the project: would you prefer I keep at the current pace and try to catch up (given that there will eventually be some severe gaps in the timeline the further we get away from Yavin, allowing us to catch up to real-time) or should I try to relaunch in Mar '14 with adjusted dates where I'd have a more significant buffer with which to keep the real-time nature of the thread more current?

    Either way is doable by me- I just don't want to lose the spirit of the thread if that's what people found more interesting than the timeline discussions and source breakdowns. However. I think the discussion has been informative (at least, for me ;)) so I'd rather plow ahead despite the hiccups.

    I'd like to see this thread keep going. If we try to fill the gaps now and generally work the bugs out of it, by March of 2014 we will have a much clearer picture of Year 0 in the GFFA. I, for one, have a clear picture of the first months through this thread.

    I agree. It's an interesting thread and I'd like to see more of it.

    It's too bad this seemingly is dead. The concept is interesting and kind of hilarious.

    I'll pick it up again in the spring/summer and just tweak the dates to reflect 2014.

    I'm going to pick it up again but tweaking the dates would probably cause more problems than it'd help.

    But both this and the DHC thread have to wait for me to overcome some computer issues first.

    As spring 2015 approaches, does anyone else want to try and give this a try?

    Bump. I'll give it a shot, time permitting. I'll be reading/revisiting lots of EU post-Yavin in the coming days. I have physical copies of every single Marvel issue, among other things. As I read, I'll take notes on how long each story is, and keep it day by day. I'll also incorporate any research that has been done here into my own.

    I'd love to know if any further work was done on this project

    Sadly, no- various RL events derailed my available free time severely since my last posts. I still have all my notes though, and can get the materials out of storage at some point (one of these days, my attempts to read through the original Marvel comics will actually succeed, dammit! :p), so it's not impossible. But I just have too many other projects I'm focused on at the moment, and far too little time to devote to them.

    I’d be happy to go through your notes and break it down day by day (minus the summaries) if you wanted?

    My remaining future notes (which aren't that numerous) are hand written on shuffled pieces of paper. That might be difficult ;). I didn't get significantly further than where my last posts left off, though, IIRC. As I mentioned a few posts above (and 9 years ago, sigh), I was in the post-Wheel/Vader's Quest era when I left off.

    Estimated to be in the 4-5 months ABY range.
