The majority of people said they couldn't commit to anything else beside Yuletide, so we decided to run the gift exchange for Valentine's day! I'm already looking forward to it.
A nice and quiet December for you all, and good luck with those Yuletide stories!
That said, seeing things flow a bit better in the intended episode order has gotten me thinking...
I was wondering if anyone had a clearer idea of the timeline on the show so far than I have gleaned? I get the impression that the show wants to sync up more or less with real time, but that is as much as I've been able to understand. I realize that if the show decides to fill in any of the gap during the hiatus / season break that any speculation might turn out to be incorrect, but I just thought I might try to start a discussion / note-keeping thread that might assist myself and anyone else in placing events in order and in relative timescale to each other.
In 2.01 The Drowned Book, the opening scene shows this timestamp:
And later, when Jake, Cassandra, and Ezekiel are talking before the conclusion of the episode, Jake mentions "the three months we were on our own." I wasn't sure whether to take this to mean that they spent a full three months in Peru before going their separate ways or that they had only been on their own three months since the conclusion of Season 1 and that Peru hadn't taken very long. Given that most of their cases seem to take only a day or two at most, I was leaning toward the latter but was unsure based on my earlier thought that it seems like the show wants to stay lined up with something that almost resembles real time? I can't imagine what might have taken three months in Peru, but it doesn't seem completely beyond the realm of possibility.
I would have tacked this onto one of the episode discussions, but I thought that it might qualify as its own separate discussion both of past episodes and of those that air in the future.
Is there any time contextualizing information you have noticed? Or do you have any educated guess headcanons about the time between extant episodes (at the time you're reading this) or during the break between seasons?
We envision something easy and low-key. Everyone could post a request (for fic or art or either) and then everyone who made a request claims someone else's request and thus (in theory) everyone gets something.
Let us know what you think about that:
Would you participate in a Librarians gift exchange?
I'm already doing Yuletide, so no
I'm doing Yuletide, but still yes
I would but I can't write (i.e. only if gifts other than fic are allowed)
What would be your favorite gift reveal/posting date?
New Year's Eve
Earlier than Christmas
Later than New Year's Eve
I don't care
If you have a better idea, let us know in the comments!
I'm putting up this dicussion post right now, so everyone who wants to can start discussing as soon as the episode starts. Everyone who still needs to wait a day (me included) will chime in later. Let's talk!
(If you're reading this post months later and feel like jumping in, please do.)
If anyone is still thinking about signing up, the deadline is sometime late tonight depending on your time zone - check out yuletidetreasure on tumblr for links to all the info.
( Eve in season 1 )
( Eve in season 2 (trailer) )
My personal opinion: I think she looks just as sporty and business casual as in the first season. The last scene doesn't count, and that weird second-to-last one must be something special, too, since none of them look in character. The only one I'm genuinely not happy about is that pinstripe suit in the third-to-last one.
ETA: Added three more pics of Eve (#5-#7) from the newest trailer.
If you can't watch, there are some videos on the PBS page that may be accessible; if you click on "Episodes" at the top, then Episode 1.
Here is the direct link to the synesthesia clip:
Kind of neat, and also might be helpful for people who want to write Cassandra!

Did I forget any? (I left out Dean Devlin on purpose.)
Here is a great tutorial on how to nominate a fandom and characters:
You can only make a specific request (or offer to write) for certain characters if those characters are nominated, so for instance if you are planning to do Yuletide and you really want to request Cassandra/Ezekiel or something, you should make sure to nominate both the fandom (The Librarians (TV 2014) on AO3) and the characters you want.
