Who is Who & What is What - Your guide to BPBB  
Title: Who is Who & What is What
Series: Bulletproof Baby Blankets
Rating: NR
Summary:  Because Bulletproof Baby Blankets is written out of order (or as my muses deem appropriate) the timeline and the characters have caused quite a bit of confusion. This is my attempt to help fix that. (I hope I don't make it worse.)
Warnings: It may make it worse instead of better?

When I started this series, I didn't expect it to become quite so long or complicated. And because I write the chapters as they come to me, they are not in chronological order. This became a concious decision after a few chapters, because I like being able to move back and forth in time. If my muses decide they want to write about Steve and Danny before they are married, I can do that.

This has resulted in some (understandable) confusion with some readers. And I apologize for that. (Even I have trouble keeping up sometimes.) In an effort to help us all, here is a list of the chapters in chronological order, as if I had started at the "beginning" and moved one direction in their timeline. (This is not the order in which I wrote them.) I can't swear that they will make sense if you read them in this order. I may have changed details here and there because I have trouble keeping track. Probably an outline or "answer key" would be handy but where would the fun be in that?

As I add chapters to this series, I will try to remember to come back and update this timeline.

I hope this helps and doesn't make things worse! Thanks!!

H50 Autocorrects
autocorrects 2
More Autocorrect silliness
even more autocorrects

Family Tree and other notes:
Danny and Steve get married
  • On their first anniversary, Mary (Steve’s sister) offers to have Danny’s baby –  John
  • On John’s first birthday, Danny’s sister agrees to have Steve’s baby – Emma
Rachel and Stan are married
  • Alicia is born (I wrote her before Rachel in The Show had Charlie)
  • Zacchary is born (Zacchary probably has a form of Aspberger’s)
As far as Steve, Danny, Rachel, and Stan are concerned, they are all one huge family in most aspects (because it’s my story and I like utopias.)

Grace lives with both sets of parents alternately until she gets married.

Chin is married to Malia and so far have no children (this may change). When Steve is elected Governor, Chin becomes head of the 5-0 task force.

Kono is married to Charlie and has 5 children (I think.) She is Steve’s Lieutenant Governor when he is elected.

Grace is the oldest child then Alicia, John, Zacchary, and Emma.

I don't know how much does it say about me but the story kind of organized itself in my head but not everyone is as obsessed as me so thanks for the post!! The interesting thing for me was Zacchary and his Aspberger’s because when I read the tsunami part I started wondering what could he have.

I can't wait for the "proper" first time fic :P
