NOTE: Stories are set-up in rough chronological order, not necessarily the order they were written in. 'Pre-Series' implies a story set before 'Family Dynamics'. 'AU' implies a story not quite in the same 'verse as the rest. If you are new to the series, Family Dynamics should be read first. It sets up the whos, whats and whys of the series.

Since you have commented, I will use you as my guinea pig (muahahaha!). Do you like the way it's set-up now? I put them in the order they were written. Or do you think it would be better to set them up in chronological order? The problem with chronological would be figuring out just how they go and then fitting new stories in, but the way it's set-up now, people new to the series might be confused by the time jumps. What do you think, if I may ask?

Personally I'd stick them in chronological order, but my brain works better that way. Just don't give them numbers! Whenever you write a new one, just indicate that it is the latest addition.

I'm happy you've done a launch page though as there's a few of these I'd missed and having them all on one page makes it a lot easier! I love the mini!dresdens.
The Writer They Call Tay: Dresden: ready for actionawanderingbard on August 24th, 2008 06:09 pm (UTC)
I thought it would be easier to link to this page than to my tags one where it would be 'go look at this long page of stories in reverse order and try to find the one you want'.

What you're saying makes sense, about the order. I do think people should read Family Dynamics first, since it has who these people are and how they got here in it, and I've tried not to repeat the same backstory in the others over and over again. After that, I might end up putting them in chronological order, especially if I end up writing stories where they are older or younger than they are now.

you specify the pre-series one, so that's good.

the others.... so far the kids haven't "grown" in them, right? As long as that's the case I think you're fine.

No, they're all about the same time, except for Family Dynamics and Picnic, which are set about six months or so before The Right Shoes. But they're already in order, so that should be alright.

Thanks for the feedback! :-)
