This timeline is based on information provided by El Goonish Shive's author, Dan Shive, and is intended to make it easier to get a sense of how both the plot and the characters have progressed since the comic started. On February 2, 2010, Shive acknowledged the timeline in part 3 of the fourth in-comic Q&A session. In the commentary, he declared that, short of finding a flaw somewhere, he considers it canon. At that time, the page looked like this, and subsequent edits have not necessarily been vetted accordingly.
By looking at the days given with the dates, one can conclude that the comic takes place in 2013 (moving into 2014 in more recent story arcs), as this is the only year with the right approximate technology where, for instance, May 24th and March 29th are Fridays. 2002 has the correct day-date pairings, but the technology used in later comics isn't consistent with technology available at the time, also the culture references would be weird; this being a fictional universe, of course, it cannot be ruled out. 2019 also fits with the established days, but that would make the stories taking place from Family Tree onward take place in 2020. Since 2020 is a leap year, it will not have the same match ups of day-of-the-month/day-of-the-week from Saturday, February 29 onward. The only thing Dan himself will admit about which year the comic takes place in is that it is in the 21st century.

They state that they're from the other half of the main universe, & that magic isn't flowing back there from Moperville when it should.

|(possibly January 15th)||Wednesday||Susan meets with Justin after school. Justin still doesn't want to believe that Susan and Diane could be related.
Late that night, Jerry hangs out in Susan's room watching her sleep and giving reasons why it's really not safe for him to be around her now.
Possibly before dawn Thursday morning, Sirleck abandons his rich, old, brain-dead host body and takes over one of the old man's servants.

Also late that evening, Part 16: BFFs begins with Sarah in her PJs practicing her magic again. Pandora reveals herself, and they have a talk that turns very personal. After Pandora leaves, as Sarah tries to go to sleep, she realizes that Pandora is probably Mr. Raven's mother.
