I wanted to write up a thing clarifying what, in the elf threads, is canon and what's general universe headcanon and what's a story-specific consequence of events, and also a timeline with all of my active threads situated on it.
First, the timeline! This is from the Annals of Aman
, which is in Morgoth's Ring (History of Middle-earth Volume X) and from the Grey Annals and the Tale of Years, both in War of the Jewels (Volume XI). The dates in this part are in Years of the Trees, which are 9.582 years of the Sun. In some places this is messy and I defer to (http://www.silmarillionwritersguild.org ... illion.php
