wel, like i said. Thomas might be old in age, but he probably still looks quite young, upper 20's maybe. i would think that WC Vamps, being the semi-imortals they are, would age much slower. like how Wizards can live for many canturies before looking their age, WC Vamps  would as well. they would carry that trait.
true.  Plus if anything is going to age gracefully, it would be the come-hitherers.  Besides, didnt they once say that Lara was a few centuries old?

She's at least a century old, according to BR.  And we know Lord Raith is several centuries old.

Thank you very much for the timeline.  I can see how a *lot* of work went into that.

I'm curious about the date for Ivy's birth.  Could it be earlier?  Perhaps by a year?

The events around her birth make me go "Hmmm"

Why do you ask?

Looking at the timeline the most recent version of the accords had recently been signed(within 1-3 years).

At the end of SmF

  My BS meter pegged.

So I was thinking that if the accords had just been signed (real recently) or were about to be signed someone/thing might have taken advantage of an opportunity.  <shrug> maybe not.

This isn't the thread for discussing the Archive.  This is for the timeline alone!

Re: Molly's age.

if i followed the gist close enough, molly was 17ALMOST18. thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close to it.

so, when a year later she is 19, is it exactly a year, or is a year and couple months, or was there time dialation in Winter that affected her more or something?

Molly's age is... problematic.  She is 17 in PG and 19 in WN, meaning that she had to have had TWO birthdays in the space of ten months.  Time dialation in Winter is a great idea--I was thinking something more along the lines of a TARDIS or DeLorean.  Maybe someday Jim will write a short story about Molly getting stuck in some kind of Groundhog Day causality loop...

And to compound the insanity, Molly is 20 in "It's My Birthday Too," only nine months after WN, meaning that she had THREE birthdays in a 19-month period.  It was after this point that Jim brought me on as a Timeline beta. :D
