Trauma Button A Paradox Live Fansite

Timeline of Events

This is my non-canon best guess at the timeline of Paradox Live. There are some things that I have to take my best guess at, and things that are ambiguous at present; I have placed these roughly where I figure they might be. These incidents are displayed with a darker background and are generally noted as Exact Timeline Unknown.
This timeline assumes that the first opening show CDs are "the present" and move forward from then.

What about social media?
Social media (twitter interactions etc) confuses the timeline and so is functionally ommitted.

We know that the CDs do not follow real time release schedules (the end of Exhibition show and the start of LOVE happen within minutes of each other; SHOWDOWN's dramas happen within days of the round 1 results and also implies that FATE and RAGE happened closer to each other in time than they did in real life). Not only is all Twitter-based time explicitly anachronistic (the series is set in the near future, not the present day!), but there are oddities such as the fact that the characters do not age in the main dramas despite celebrating their birthdays on social media.

As such, Twitter and Paradox Tribe are treated as generally canonical in terms of content (as in, what the characters reveal about themselves is assumed to be true) but as also as falling outside of the canonical timeline.
