Timescale of the Story

Post by Spidrift » Sun Feb 09, 2014 12:21 am

A general point, not tied to any one strip:

Back in #711 (almost a year ago, good grief), Zii announced that the band had a gig "next Saturday". That was the beginning of the night of the accidental orgy, note. So assuming that the booking hasn't been cancelled, less than two weeks can have passed since then; probably less than a week.

The exact time is tricky to estimate, but Peggy announced a little while back that she hadn't slept well in "days", there've been a couple of band rehearsals (one with Jung fitting costumes, one with Peggy delivering cupcakes), and other stuff including Gary's Paris trip also fits into that period. So my own best guess is that we're 4-5 days on from the accidental orgy, with one more rehearsal to go, and then a first gig for Zii and the Troublemakers.

Assuming that the comic is playing fair on this stuff, of course...

Obviously it's only a few days (less than a week) because Gary hasn't returned from Paris yet also.
