  1. Summary

    This is (so far, at least), an open-ended grouping of mostly free-standing works rather than any sort of plot-linked series. My goal is simply to present a version of Nancy Drew that's essentially true to the classic yellow-spine books while updating the setting to the (nominal) present day.

    Summary

    …fruit flies like a banana.

    A suggested chronological viewing order for Miraculous Ladybug canon, with reasoning and with an attempt to sort out which references to calendar dates and/or to how much time passes between canonical events make sense and which one must choose between.

    This is currently limited to the episodes proper; deuterocanon such as the Miraculous Secrets webisodes may later be added.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Detailed and well-thought-out timeline for canonical episodes for Seasons 1-3 (or 1-5 for those of us coming in via Netflix). Clearly an invaluable resource for prospective writers of fics.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I admit it, this one made me cry -- in a good way, mind you. Another StarFreedom's account of her personal history prior to the events of Uhura's Song is ingeniously and sensitively woven around an epilogue of sorts to the novel that absolutely captures the tone that made the novel so very memorable.

    An insightful and sensitive character piece, thoughtfully and wisely integrating Rushlight's journeys and the source novel into the context of the larger Starfleet universe. Very well done indeed.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A perfectly delightful and thoughtful extrapolation from what Baum gives us of Button-Bright's history, well-reasoned in detail and well-rendered in tone and style. I think the angle it takes on Button-Bright is exactly on target, Polychrome's difficulties in non-magical America are all too plausible, and the narrative deftly acknowledges some of the more problematic issues without becoming overly risqué. Also, the story fits itself ingeniously into the overall Ozian timeline -- clearly, its author is well and wisely versed in the larger canon.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Of course Danilo is going to test a mystery portal by stepping into it (and leaving Arilyn and company to try and figure out what went wrong). At which point it makes perfect sense for Arilyn to put the puzzle in Khelben's hands, and then to go and consult Elaith when that doesn't immediately resolve matters. Some of the ensuing developments boggle the mind a bit, but then again that may be what you get when unplanned time travel is involved. A highly amusing and entertaining adventure in an under-served corner of Forgotten Realms canon.
