The show almost kept me from trying the books, it was so bad. Probably why it took me 5+ years after that to finally give the book series a try.

Though apparently my Husband liked the TV series, but isn't planning on reading the books. Could be because I Talk about them so much I give away too many spoilers. My bad.

Well the Jack Murphy and the black cats would have been much later, since Murphy has memories of her dad;  He killed himself around 17 BSF. 

As far as WWII, the only things that come to mind was the talk of Kemmler raising mass graves and that brief description of Klaus the Toymaker vs the Nazi Sorcerer that was summoning demons

Shame he won't/can't publish that. It sounds like a fun read.

First, let me say that these details have been super valuable to some work I've been doing for building a Dresden Timeline. Thanks to all who put forth details and edits. Well Done!

Moving on: I've been doing some research into Dresden Timeline as I've been trying to build an accurate timeline for the Dresden Files Role-Playing Game I'm running. I've always figured that Storm Front took place somewhere around 1999-2001 and that worked for the most part, but while doing research I decided that being able to track the moon, and seasons would be valuable information for running the game. One of the primary NPC's in the game is type of Lunar cycle Theriomorph. Thus, part of my research led me to build a timeline/spreadsheet of every Solstice and Equinox, in addition to every full moon and blue moon (two full moons in same month) and every total lunar eclipse from 1950 until 2015. Thus when I started to flesh out the details for Harry's birth date I knew I was going to arbitrarily place it on Halloween somewhere in the years 1974-1976 for the purposes of my game. When I cross referenced October 31st with my newly updated Full Moon Calendar I found that in 1974 Halloween was also the day of a Blue Moon.

Again, while Dresden details aren't specific for time frame, I'd say that this detail jumped out at me as potentially important detail. I personally think it is reasonable to suggest that Harry Dresden's birth date is October 31, 1974.

8 ASF "My Birthday Too" Thomas' 40th Birthday means that he was born in 1968 (with SF set in 2000), which matches Harry being born in 1974. [assumptions, but it makes sense].

I just knew about the cats...oh, and I think there was something mentioned about technology made from crystals. But I'm not sure and I don't know if I recall it correctly. :-\

Crystals are way cooler than batteries.

How's this. LeVar Burton as Henry Rawlins?

I don't know if this is appropriate for the timeline, but Thomas did say he was 15 when he was 'turned'.

What about just Voice Acting? For an animated work. He doesn't look the part, but I think James Marsters captures Harry's voice perfectly.

Author Craft / Making Life Hard for your Characters

As an amateur writer, the hardest thing I have to do in writing a story is creating pain, sorrow, tragedy and misery for my main characters. I think I'm too softhearted sometimes. Has anyone else had this problem?

You overlooked it.  It's there!

I see it now.  Weird that I missed it at first glance. With Thomas' Birthday coming up, I was curious as to how old he would be.

So he would be turning 44 or 45 this month. Interesting.

I didn't see Thomas's birth listed on the timeline, or did I overlook it? If Harry is Oct 21, 25 BSF, then Thomas should be Feb 14, 31 BSF. 

Or, it might be that Blood contains a lot of Iron. Arctis Tor might be a construct made from her powers. One drop of iron rich blood has the same effect on the structure as Iron would have on any Fae. The breaking of the ice could have caused a power feedback that was painful to Mab.

This doesn't really matter, but Merlin didn't "leave". If I remember correctly, when asked if Merlin was still alive, Jim said kinda. I think that supports your theory more

If I were Merlin, I'd go into hiding, keep a low profile. He had to have had many enemies over the centuries. Not sure ascending to becoming a god counts as keeping a low profile.

My question is, what is Odin? He's supposed to be a god, wouldn't taking on a mantle of a fae be a downgrade for him? What does it mean to be a god in the DV? (lower case god, not the upper case one).

Also, if Santa is a mantle, then anyone, theoretically, can become Santa? (like those Tim Allen type movies.)

If Butters wasn't Jewish he'd make an interesting Santa (assuming Odin get's tired of the role). Andi would make an interesting Mrs. Claus.
