    Post made after the release of chapter 65.

    Spoilers are securely restrained by a clickwall below.
    As of chapter 64 we are back on track again. That being no solid track at all.

    However, the latest chapter (65) delivered more info regarding the main (?) plot (the world/reality being a glitchy mess that is falling apart) than I can remember ever having been done before.

    Unless memory fails there have always been a few hints about clear that something isn't all right, with Lily and the Master of Death issue at the center of it. But now we get a link (albeit an unclear one) between the power of Lily, Rabbit, Death, Tales of Beedle the Bard and Dementors.

    And with no real subplot being active at the moment we can just hope this isn't sidetracked for another year or so.


    On another note.
    If you are planning to plunging into tangled mess of crossovers and side stories, I made a graph. It should hopefully help you finding out how the different stories relate to eachother, and when it should be safe to read a side story or crossover without spoilers.

    Or at the very least it should illustrate that Lily and the Art of Being Sisyphus is probably pretty straight forward if you compare it to the authors loosely combined universe.

    Edit: Fixed the image.

    What did you use to make that image? Looks like it might be a good program for outlining.

    Sorry to disappoint but its tangly photoshop.
    [​IMG]
    None of the lines or other elements are automatic, so its a pain to update when I need to make space for new multi-chapter drop down stories.
    I've tried finding an appliction that lets me create differently colored timelines etc, for outlining stories. But no luck.
    Should I find something like it I'll msg you and post in the relevant thread.

    Aeon Timeline is one I have but haven’t really played with. I’d hoped it might be that. Thanks for response.

    As regards this story... I think it’s become one of my least favorite of the authors stories. Lily is a great character and very absurdist, but her idea that she needs to be at Hogwarts because she has a role to play seems to hinder the story sometimes.

    Versions of Harry in the authors stories seem slightly more grounded (however absurdist/weird they continue to be) and fit better into the HP universe.

    Lily though I feel fits better in other worlds, be they Star Wars or Naruto or Pokémon. Hogwarts hinders her - and I’m not sure it’s in a way that really works despite it being deliberate.

    I’m about 3-4 chapters behind. About time to catch up.
