A BRINGER OF NEW THINGS
The stories under the overall title, "A Bringer of New Things", take the events depicted during the season 8 finale as well as the events of the stories set during that time period and take them forward into season 9, with the intention of being faithful to the material depicted in the new season.
However, as in the previous stories, if the depicted timeline appears to be contradictory or difficult to work with, certain liberties will be taken. For instance, it is assumed that the events of season 9 begin roughly two-three months after "Existence", around July 2001, rather than the 48 hours shown onscreen or otherwise referenced. As the season moves forward, these timelines differences are dealt with as needed.
