Continuity in Hitherby Dragons

Editor’s Note

This is a capture of all the Continuity posts of Hitherby Dragons. It includes all the historical and current-day events of the ongoing story. It also includes select Legends, primarily those concerning Ink’s continuing adventures, and those concerning Jane and Martin. In the first case, it is because Ink is the only recurrent Legends character with a consistent continuity of her own. In the second case, it is to strengthen the representations of the personalities and relationships of those characters who are so very central to the story.

There are many other recurring characters in Hitherby Dragons who are intriguing or even endearing. But for their stories, you’ll have to go to the source.

Note: This does not include apparently-unrelated mini-stories such as ‘Unclean Legacy’ and ‘House of Saints’. Sorry. Those are usually clustered together, so not nearly as hard to read through.

Introduction (Dragons)

In the old days, they didn’t know very much about the world. But they made maps anyway. If they had to map something they couldn’t, they just drew whatever they felt like and wrote, “Here there be dragons.”

Someone found Hitherby Dragons by asking google whether dragons are real.

If you tried to map the world today, you could detail every inch of the world’s surface. Satellites could show you every forest and every bush, every mountain and every field. They could show you your house and mine. There are no empty spaces left.

We don’t know very much about the world; and there are things to map of it besides its surface.

Can broken things be remade?
Can destinies change?
Is it worth the risk of hope?
Important questions, but one can only shrug, you see.

Here, there be dragons.
