The Abebird Files Timeline

Continuity Notes

The World's Worst FanFic Universe is based on the G1 cartoon universe, which for our purposes includes the events of the Beast Wars. Most of the in-continuity WWFFs take place in 1986, between the end of the second season of the cartoon and the movie. Also during this time period, the events of WARendfeld's continuity fanfics (NOT his Sagas) take place, specifically the events that lead up to the creation of the Maximal Star Platform Alpha in the year 1999. Wherever our fanfics contradict's WAR's, ours should be taken as canon for the WWFF Universe. Basically, this means that all of WAR's characters have been killed off in our universe and are never coming back. Ever.

And now, without further adieu, Perc 'n Pic present the much needed World's Worst FanFic Universe Timeline to help you sorry readers figure out the chronologal mess that are The Abebird Files.

(The WWFF in which the events occurred is noted after each entry. Entries with no WWFF listed are canon, but were not explicitly described in a WWFF. Clicking on highlighted entries lets you jump to the event that follows from the point of view of the time travelling characters.)

11 million years ago The Quintessions build Cybertron and create the first Transformers.
