Attempted wibbly-wobbly reduction
In my continued (but brief and spaced out) attempts to sort out a timeline, I remember that iantos_desktop had attempted to work out a timeline for TW/DW/SJA. Here's a link for the 21st century timeline. I think it does a very good job of figuring out when things happen based on on-screen given dates and some extra material, with some necessary ignoring of contradictory stuff (as the author puts it for one of the dates, "I've decided to just hum to myself a lot and pretend this problem doesn't exist"). Some things just plain don't work as told; for instance, Toshiko's got three or four birthdays depending on which episode and book you look at. Nice work, continuity folks who don't exist.
Anyway, since it's useful to have a timeline to refer to, I thought that one looked like a pretty good possibility. Some of the dates estimated there are ones I arrived at, too, which gives support to my theory that I'm awesome. Or something like that. Right, okay, the point is, I've tried to figure out where some of our personal canon dates could fall relative to those events. Below, I've got some proposed dates for your consideration:
