The 10th Doctor once told Shakespeare, “The right combination of words spoken in the right place with the shape of the Globe is an energy converter.” At that time, Shakespeare was able to solve their dangerous situation using only the power of words. Words are used throughout the fandom universe. They are used as spells, they are used as curses (some of which come true, see The Lord of the Rings). Names are a great example of the power of words. You’ll see multiple stories where knowing someone’s true name gives you power of them. In the words of Myst, words are even used to create worlds. But, the most important use of words is storytelling. Throughout time, we tell stories of what we have seen or thought we saw. Stories are so powerful that they become ingrained in our timeline, recurring until we call them tropes, stereotypes, or reboots. We do it all the time.
What this Ultimate Fandom Timeline does, however, is prove that these stories are not stories. We think it’s fiction, but it isn’t. The stories are just moments of reality we have almost forgotten. Why don’t we remember these tales? Well we can thank organizations like the MIB or Wizarding World for that. There are many people that would like these stories to remain silent. But this is not fiction. This is real. You know a story is real if it generates a sizable fanbase. Subconsciously, we are aware of the truth when we see it. We flock to it. The more popular a story is, the closer it is to reality. For example, there are fewer stories as true as Harry Potter.
We are surrounded by real events that only show themselves in our stories. Those who would keep us ignorant encourage this storytelling. That way, if we were to witness the truth, we would only call it fiction. DO NOT BE FOOLED. This is not fiction. I will continue to present this timeline using the stories that have already told. There will be many more. You can choose to believe me or not. In the mean time, enjoy the Ultimate Fandom Timeline.

What is the Ultimate Fandom Timeline:
The Ultimate Fandom Timeline is a hypothetical amalgamation of stories from across all major fandoms. It answers the question, “What if EVERYTHING was connected?” So it places the major timelines in order of how they could relate to each other. It is told from the perspective of a fictional character, Alice, who thinks that all the major stories are somehow real and connected and that it’s a huge coverup that prevents us from realizing this fact.
