Timeline of Silent Hill's History — UPDATED

Post by ERROR on Wed May 11, 2011 5:52 pm

I finished it. I don't think it can be any more accurate. The short version:

Origins = 1975, March
Silent Hill = 1982, June
Silent Hill 2 = 1994, May 14
Silent Hill 3 = 1999, Springtime
The Room = 2001, December
Homecoming = 2007, October 16
Downpour = 2011, October

73. In the employee lounge room of Lakeview Hotel, a schedule is “dated one year ago.”
74. In the newspaper article in Silent Hill: Homecoming, Alex Shepherd is reported to be eight years old.
75. The diary on Brookhaven Hospital’s roof [Silent Hill 2] is Mary Shepherd-Sunderland’s.
76. Only a few short hours after Mary Shepherd-Sunderland dies, James Sunderland receives a letter from her from Silent Hill. This is on the next day after Mary’s final journal entry.
77. In Joseph Schreiber’s journal entry dated May 8th, he writes, “It was four years ago that they discovered the body with ‘12/21’ carved into it.” This was Peter Wolls’ body.
78. See 77. Sharon Blake’s body was found a few days after Peter Wolls’.
79. Alex Shepherd’s journal entry for August 8th reads, “Joshua’s ten years younger than me.”
8o. Claudia writes in her diary, dated November 16, "I don’t want to be a mere bystander in this world. I can’t do anything now, though, and that’s what’s hard." The two previous entries also suggest her desire to find Alessa. This is undoubtedly when she hired Douglas Cartland—only a few months earlier.
81. Joseph Screiber’s article, because of it’s presence in Silent Hill 3, indicates it must have been written before Heather’s journey. Its content also suggests it was published around the same time he began his investigation into the religious group of Silent Hill, therefore prior to his journal entries regarding Walter Sullivan. This investigation acts as the impetus to further explore Walter Sullivan and Wish House.
82. Silent Hill 3 happens 17 years after Silent Hill. It must also occur after Joseph Schreiber’s article in the magazine Concord, and before he begins his journal on April 4th. On April 8th he claims “the cult itself is gone,” suggesting that high-profile members of the religious group are deceased—Claudia Wolf, Vincent Smith, Jimmy Stone, and George Rosten, for example.
83. Joseph Schreiber’s journal entry dated August 2nd is identical to the dream Henry Townshend experiences when he is first trapped in his apartment.
84. Eileen Galvin tells Henry Townshend Joseph Schreiber “disappeared about 6 months before you moved in . . .” Henry moving in in December allows Joseph’s journal the appropriate amount of time before Silent Hill 3 happens and the Order’s priests and leaders to be killed.
85. In Henry Townshend’s closet is a box from EXPRESS.
86. Walter Sullivan, as a six-year-old, wrote in his diary on October 21, "I only leave the round cell on Sunday. And I go and read the book." We learn this entry is written on a Sunday—the only day he is allowed to leave. The other days on which Walter travels to Ashfield (February 10th and March 17th) are, then, also on Sundays. Examining a calendar for a year (and the following year) in which these dates all occur on Sundays reveals they happened in 1973 and 1974. Therefore, by knowing Walter’s age and that 28 years pass until Walter begins his murder spree and from when Silent Hill 4: The Room occurs, the date is firmly established.
87. Both Token Wheeler and Elle Holloway’s journals end on October 15. The 150th Anniversary of Shepherd’s Glen was celebrated on “Saturday and Sunday, September 20th and 21st.” Examining a calendar for days on which these dates fall reveals it occurred most recently in 2003. Alex Shepherd is institutionalized in Silent Hill after graduating high school and returns four years later, at the age of 22.
88. According to a flyer in SILENT HILL: DOWNPOUR.
89. The alignment of the calendar on the music producer's desk is for October 2011. The 10th is marked specifically because that is Columbus Day.

>Hey, ERROR, the timeline is still up, why not update that?<
Wasn't aware it was. Haven't been here in years. Would you rather I edit and bump the old one? This one's so fresh and new!

>How was Mary in a mental institution for a physical disease?<
a) Brookhaven Hospital isn't strictly a mental institution, and b) Mary was suffering from a disease that could no longer be treated, and severe depression, which could be treated. The doctors didn't want her killing herself—they were making "a nice profit" off of her—and I imagine James didn't, either. Suicide sucks.

Where does it say that? I only ever remember people being committed there for mental conditions. It was a medical hospital a long, long time ago, but when the games take place you're facing mentally unstable people. I don't think she would have killed herself. She was happy around Laura and wanted to adopt her, which most likely gave her some inspiration to live. And if she was so mentally unstable to be put with people like Stanley Coleman and Leonard Wolfe, then how was she allowed to go back to see James? I think the "nice profit" line was mostly because she was upset and didn't know what to do.

This is just my question, she was terminal, but do people who are terminally ill and want to die rather than slowly and painfully die deserve to be committed? By professional standards, would they have done this? When I think about it, it reminds me of the cases with Dr.Death.

>I only ever remember people being committed there for mental conditions<
Depression is a "mental condition." That damn disease turned Mary into an up-and-down wreck, from claiming she wanted to die, to threatening her husband, to immediately apologizing pathetically. Mary wasn't just sick from a disease. Hospitals that treat people with "mental conditions" aren't all full of the criminally insane like the movies. Hospitals treat people with depression, too—people sick, like Mary. The Leonard Wolfs and Stanley Colemans of Brookhaven Hospital are on the second and third floors, with security measures. The first floor, where the garden is, where Mary stayed, lacks that security.

>do people who are terminally ill and want to die rather than slowly and painfully die deserve to be committed?<
I wouldn't call it "be committed." She wanted to go there—to Silent Hill. The hospital was just the window to look out to where she wanted to be. It was the vehicle. She had no other option to see Silent Hill once more.

Besides—her letter says she's in Silent Hill.

She was very upset, but I don't see the benefit of transferring her to a mental hospital, rather than working with her at the hospital she was already in. You can't really say that she did stay there when the diary is nameless. It reads like her, but it's not a fact.

Although I understand what you're talking about ERROR. Mary had a terminal disease though. The Lost Memories DVD shows a picture of Mary when she was ill, and it does not appear she is just suffering from depression.

Image

It also appears she is at home. It could be that she is at home dying of her disease, which explains why James easily hid her body. Most people opt to die with their family surrounding them at home in comfort than in a hospital. I went through this irl, and my grandma knew she was dying. Does that make her mentally ill for being depressed about it?

She was going to die regardless. I don't see the benefit of denying a dying woman her last wish of seeing Silent Hill once more.

>it does not appear she is just suffering from depression.<
I never said she was only suffering depression. I said, in this very thread, that her disease could no longer be treated. Saying Brookhaven Hospital is a mental hospital helps my argument: a general hospital isn't suited to treat someone with such a severe case of depression (as Mary).

This thread, also, isn't about Mary being at Brookhaven Hospital. If that one point has any impact on my timeline in any way, and when the events occur, then feel free to argue it. It does not, though. It gives me an exact month and day on which Silent Hill 2 happens. The year is already established by Amy Baldwin's calendar.

Going to Silent Hill is one thing, but a psyche ward? I've never heard of someone terminally ill being transferred to a psyche ward for being depressed about their death. Mary was really upset at first, but by the time she would have been sent, she was already happy spending time with Laura. If SH2 shows us anything about Laura, it's that she's not a bad person and she acts sort of like a light in the dark.

It isn't, I'm just curious as to why you are stating that it's Mary's is all.
ya fuckin rite

>Going to Silent Hill is one thing, but a psyche ward?<
. . . It's not a "psyche ward."

>by the time she would have been sent, she was already happy spending time with Laura.<
a) Ashfield is only "a half-day's drive." That's not very long.
b) Laura isn't Silent Hill. She couldn't provide Mary with her dying wish of seeing Silent Hill again. Mary also knew she was going to die, and thus leave Laura—poor, orphaned Laura. I imagine Mary thought it was better—for both Mary and Laura—to simply write to her, "I won't be at this hospital anymore" (as in the Japanese version of the letter). That's better than, "I'm gonna die. See ya!" Mary didn't want to leave Laura, but she didn't want to orphan Laura again. Her parents probably already passed away. She doesn't need to deal with that twice. Mary knew that, so she left.

Sorry, I have a friend who was sent to one and I forgot that the wards are for kids. :) But it was a psychiatric hospital and you can't say she was on board for that just because it was in Silent Hill. I can see why she might want to, but I can't believe that as fact unless I see her name on it.

>1999
· Joseph Schreiber publishes exposé on Wish House in the magazine Concord [81.]


Another crimson tome this victim:

Would this coincide with Vincent resurrecting the cult?

Also, this and Joseph's article, as well as Vincent's words prove Silent Hill is far from abandoned.
WHY NOT ZOIDBERG? (V)(;,,,;)(V)

I'm curious, when do you think Shattered Memories takes place? I don't think it has any indication at all of when it takes place, but still.

ERROR wrote:That damn disease turned Mary into an up-and-down wreck, from claiming she wanted to die, to threatening her husband, to immediately apologizing pathetically. Mary wasn't just sick from a disease. Hospitals that treat people with "mental conditions" aren't all full of the criminally insane like the movies. Hospitals treat people with depression, too—people sick, like Mary. The Leonard Wolfs and Stanley Colemans of Brookhaven Hospital are on the second and third floors, with security measures. The first floor, where the garden is, where Mary stayed, lacks that security.


Incorrect. Masahiro Ito himself has confirmed via Twitter that Mary never stayed at Brookhaven Hospital in Silent Hill.

One must remember that...

REVEAL SPOILER
...the letter itself is a manifestation of the powers present within the area of the town and that it is yet another product of James' subconscious feelings of guilt over his involvement in Mary's death as well as his desire for punishment. The fact that it says that she's in Silent Hill was the "hook" to draw James into Silent Hill; it was what he knew, on a subconscious level, would force him to confront his crimes...

Yep. It has been confirmed that Laura and Mary stayed at St. Jerome's Hospital. Which was also the hospital that Rachel worked at (their nurse, who is also mentioned in SH4). Which makes sense, since Rachel never worked at Brookehaven. They could only be where Rachel was since she was their primary nurse.

There is also this timeline which is 100% backed up by reliable sources and has only used that of which has been confirmed: http://silenthill.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline

Cheryl's birthday is July 17th, 1983 (which oddly makes her only 3 weeks younger than me irl). Harry finds that info via the school's student records.
So with her being 25 that would put Shattered Memories in 2008 or early 2009.
