So this is actually gonna be part 1 of a little comic series I’m gonna be doing for team STRQ’s experience with their own Vytal festival dance! All of which should be made to stand on their own, but I just wanted to share my little headcanons for how I think things went down. ❤
This comic in particular came from my desire to draw Raven in a slayin’ dress, and to showcase how I think her relationship with Summer Rose was like, but more of that is to come!
You fluttered about yourself, fixing the fall of your skirt,
wiggling the necklace into just the right place – finishing touches. Your hair
was pulled back to highlight the pendant resting just below your collar and it
was making you self-conscious. One final inspecting twirl in the mirror and you
were out the door.
Voices could be heard as you approached the landing and you
figured they must already be gathered in the entryway. Turning around the
corner to the stairs, your assumption was confirmed. Tommy lifted his head at
the sight of your movement and watched you walk to the head of the stairs.
Alfie turned to see what had caught his attention and met your eyes. You couldn’t
quite make out what the expression on his face was, having never seen it before.
“I feel stupid, Tommy”
“You look perfect, come on”
“I feel stupid. Why the hell am I- I mean look at this thing!”
You fluffed the skirt of your gown out a little and Tommy
smiled a little.
Because of this ask I received, I was inspired to find the clock in Mason Industries at the end of each mission to see how long they were gone. The clock starts the second they leave for the past and stops when they return. It is not visible every time (especially not in later episodes), but I’ll share what I can find or derive.
So, for anyone else curious just how long the team was in the past each episode, here you go.
1.01 - Pilot
15 hours, 8 minutes, 46 seconds
1.02 - The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln
23 hours, 48 minutes, 56 seconds
1.03 - Atomic City
13 hours, 48 minutes, 18 seconds
1.04 - Party at Castle Varlar
21 hours, 29 minutes, 26 seconds
1.05 - The Alamo
N/A *This timeline is a conundrum.
Historically, the Alamo falls early in the morning on March 6th. Jiya says Flynn jumped to March 2nd. Lucy says the Alamo is not supposed to fall for four more days, so March 2nd. And yet the date that the title card flips over from in the beginning of the episode says, “03041836″: March 4th.
Considering the long shadows coming from the tents in Santa Anna’s camp, Flynn does not first meet with him at midday. It is morning or afternoon. Enough happens during that day (also the team would arrive later than Flynn and did not do so at night) that I’ll assume it’s morning and Flynn interrupts Santa Anna’s breakfast. That night, Flynn kills William Travis. Most of the episode takes place during the second day, March 3rd. I see no evidence of a second night, but for the title card to say March 4th implies that is when the battle takes place. (Even though the displayed date is usually the first day they jump to. However, 1.07 is another exception to this.) The conclusion for this trip is indeterminable. Perhaps the title card date is wrong, confused by the fact that their interference made the Alamo fall prematurely. I will ignore the title card and remark on what I see. Flynn arrived in the morning. There is one night. The Alamo fell in the afternoon of the second day.
This trip lasted two days but less than 48 hours.
1.06 - The Watergate Tape
N/A *Given Flynn’s time limit of five hours + any time before/after it until they returned, this trip most likely lasted 8-10 hours.
1.07 - Stranded
*NOTE: This screenshot is taken at the beginning of the episode, three hours after Flynn returned. The team remains in the past another night and day.
This trip lasted four days.
1.08 - Space Race
N/A *Flynn arrived late at night and left the next afternoon. The team was there for a lesser amount of time.
This trip lasted less than one day.
1.09 - Last Ride of Bonnie & Clyde
N/A *They arrived during the day, stayed the night, and left early the next morning.
1.10 - The Capture of Benedict Arnold
58 hours, 46 minutes, 38 seconds
*Blurry but the best shot I could get. I could be reading it wrong. I know the adventure itself lasted two days, and, logically, Wyatt and Rufus would then have to travel back to where they left the Lifeboat. 58 hours is a reasonable length of time, though it pertains only to Wyatt and Rufus. Flynn and Lucy would have been there less than 48 hours (perhaps 36 hours). They arrived on the morning of September 25th and left early in the night on September 26th, just after sunset.
1.11 - The World’s Columbian Exposition
N/A *After the episode first came out, I calculated that Lucy was with Flynn for at least 18 hours. Then she escaped.
Lucy and Flynn arrived, presumably, at night (if not before) and left at night. They were there a full day. Wyatt and Rufus were there for a shorter amount of time. We don’t see them until the next day.
This trip lasted one night and day for Flynn and Lucy, around 24 hours (or possibly more). Wyatt and Rufus were there 20 or less hours.
1.12 - The Murder of Jesse James
N/A *In the original timeline, Jesse James was killed by his partners in the morning. The time travelers were there that entire day. They camped at night. Spent the next day traveling. Made it to Emma’s cabin that night. Left the next day.
This trip lasted three days and around 48 hours.
1.13 - Karma Chameleon
N/A *Don’t hold me to this, but I believe Claire’s plane landed at around 1pm. I think the clock on the screen with the flights says 13:17. Last call for bars in Ohio (when Joel’s shift would end) is 2am. Shortly after that time, Joel and Claire went back to her hotel room, and later Wyatt interrupted them. After Joel’s death, Wyatt and Rufus leave. In the present day, it goes from being late at night/early in the morning to nighttime again in the end.
This trip lasted around 14-16 hours.
1.14 - The Lost Generation
N/A *Charles Lindbergh was supposed to land after 10pm. Flynn must have intercepted him in the late afternoon. The rest of the episode takes place at night without ever seeing morning.
This trip lasted several hours of an indeterminable count. Probably no more than 12-13 hours for the team.
1.15 - Public Enemy No. 1
N/A *I believe the clock above the hotel’s front door when Flynn first meets Capone says 11:10am. (But he would have been there a few hours already to steal all of the evidence he presented. Maybe since around 9am.) The team arrived four hours after him. When they go to the hotel later with Capone’s brother, the clock says 1:29am. They parked the Lifeboat in a field outside the city so travel needs to be included.
This trip lasted 14-16 hours.
1.16 - The Red Scare
N/A *They arrive during the day. The exact time is unclear, but with the Rittenhouse summit being that night, Flynn wouldn’t have risked waiting around for Lucy and Wyatt to show unless he had time to spare. He probably arrived in the morning or midday. The summit and climax occur that night. Don’t know what Flynn, Lucy, Wyatt, and Ethan spend the rest of the night doing, but they don’t drive into the warehouse with the Lifeboat until early the next morning.
This trip lasted two days but less than 24 hours.
There’s no real purpose behind this list besides curiosity. However, if you are interested in setting a fic during any of the episodes, here is the time span you have to do it in. Maybe that will help someone somewhere.
So, how'd Scott get along with the squad & crew once he eventually is introduced to them?
He and Liam hit it off right away. Scott was a bit more withdrawn for a while after what happened with the Kett, a response to the trauma he went through, and Liam was determined to help him get through it. It’s really common to find them playing coop games in Liam’s room, usually with bouts of shouting at the top of their lungs. They get along pretty damn well.
He already knew Cora and respects her. He’s surprised she’s not the Pathfinder after learning what happened to Alec, and is a little surprised at how good humoured she is over the situation. Sometimes, when his thoughts are getting to him, he helps her with her plants. They don’t talk much during those times, but her presence is a comforting one. She ends up being like a sister to him.
He’s a little unsure of Jaal at first, mostly because he’s never met an angara before, and he doesn’t quite know what to make of him. The fact that he and Sara are together doesn’t help much, just because Scott was so close to losing her that he doesn’t want to see her get hurt. In time, as Scott recovers and comes to know Jaal, they get on fairly well - Liam helped by roping Jaal into video game time. Now Scott spends his time feeding Jaal all the valuable intel on Sara’s youth and how to make her blush.
Peebee promised not to tackle Scott when she met him because, y’know he’s still a bit traumatised, but she still won’t slow down for him. She goes a mile a minute, and Scott actually ends up warming right up to her. She tells him about all the places she’s been to and the things they found - he spends half his time listening and the other half grumbling that he missed all of those cool discoveries. Peebee helped him find his way back out of his shell.
Drack, having already adopted Sara, immediately adopted Scott the moment he met him and sends him pictures of guns to cheer him up. Honestly, Scott loves Drack because whilst he loved his father, Alec was distant and their relationship was strained. Drack ends up providing that bit of fatherly care that Scott never really got from Alec.
Scott respects Vetra, especially after learning about what happened with Sid and their lives. He knows how it is, to love your sibling so much you’d do anything for them, but Vetra has given up so much for her sister and to be that dedicated is worthy of respect. Not to mention she knows how to get a hold of all the things he likes but hasn’t been able to find for whatever reason. However he’s given up trying to explain human boardgames to her.
Gil is someone else that Scott hits it off with quickly, given their taste in humour they get into bouts of wit very quickly. Gil gets in on video game time, at first to see what all the noise from Liam’s room is about. All in all, they end up being pretty damn good friends, though Scott owes him a lot of credits. He learns never to play poker with Gil ever again. He certainly doesn’t understand how Sara keeps beating him.
Lexi is someone Scott ends up seeing regularly for a while, mostly for health check ups and the like. She’s more laid back than he remembers, more confident in dealing with her patients and not taking any shit at all. It certainly ends up being much easier to banter with her during their sessions than he thought it would be.
Kallo’s a good pilot and obviously a friend of Sara’s, so Scott is generally polite to him, though they’re not particularly close. Sometimes though, Kallo invites Scott to come sit up on the bridge to watch the view. A quiet moment of contemplation away from the noise of the rest of the ship.
Suvi has some interesting views, though Scott doesn’t really share them. Still he respects them, and they’re generally amiable. He understands when she talks about things she’ll miss about the Milky Way, as he feels the same way every now and then. Sometimes it’s nice to have a cup of tea with her and talk about anything really.
“Hating Def Leppard is like hating birthdays or parades or hotdogs and beer at a ballgame. How can you not have affection for a band that found a way to use “rock” as a noun, verb, adjective and adverb, sometimes all in the same song? When you hear Elliott declare “Let’s get the rock out of here” and your first instinct isn’t to respond with a fist salute, you officially have no soul.“
