  Continuity (fiction) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In fiction, continuity is consistency of the characteristics of persons, plot, objects, places and events seen by the reader or viewer.
Continuity is particularly a concern in the production of film and television due to the difficulty of rectifying an error in continuity after shooting has completed, although it also applies to other art forms, including novels, comics and animation, though usually on a much broader scale.
In cinema special attention must be paid to continuity because films are rarely shot in the order in which they are presented: that is, a crew may film a scene from the end of a movie first, followed by one from the middle, and so on.

 Anne Alstott: What We Owe to Parents
While the philosophy of continuity of care emphasizes the loving bond between parent and child, parents need not devote every moment to their child or eschew paid child care.
In addition to fostering children's emotional development, continuity of care serves a second social function: parents who persist with their children for the long term become uniquely qualified to represent their interests in the health care system, the educational system, and other public settings.
Although this situation reflects continuing gender discrimination, the economics of parenthood are not simply a byproduct of gender inequality.

 Ex Astris Scientia - The Realism of (Science) Fiction
Science fiction in general and Star Trek in particular is frequently facing reproaches of not being serious or not being realistic.
Fiction, irrespective of its genre or quality (and TV shows just like written fiction), is always something devised to catch our interest, to show something that is unusual and that would not occur to us in every-day life.
Defending science fiction as something to be taken at least as seriously as other fiction, I may throw in countless examples where other genres become unlikely or just silly, beyond the necessary exaggeration of normal life.

Instead, science fiction comics became one of the contributing elements of the superhero genre that crowded out all rival forms by the end of the sixties.
In this aspect, science fiction comics combined the normal human concerns with mortality with the heightened anxieties that attended the new role technology took in the twentieth century.
Marvel, as well, took grandly to science fiction concepts in the creation of its new generation of superheroes, most of whom owed somehow to the breaking of the atom, at least in the earliest days of that company's first generation of creations.

 Emerald City: Science Fiction and Fantasy Book Reviews - #127
I put exactly the same thought and effort into any book or short fiction, and I happen to be a fast writer, so at the end of five or six weeks (I write full-time now) there’ll be a novel of 150,000 words regardless whose copyright is on it.
Inputs don’t relate to outputs in fiction, and I like using my Wess’har series to prove to people that a six-week book is as good as a six-year book; it’s all about your natural speed, and there’s no right answer.
While I’m of the school of thought that says fiction is entertainment, and the journalist in me deplores sending polemic messages to readers, the issues in Hard Contact provoked fierce and complex moral debate on the fan forums about cloning, servitude, and the nature of orders and compliance in war.

continuity of literature is, happily, not a continuity of unvarying standards or unchanging ideals.
Although it is in fiction that American writers are now most prolific and most successful, it is doubtful if many of these works will find a place in the literature which endures, or if any of these popular novelists will be long remembered.
Two schools of fiction are represented: the realistic, and the romantic.

Care towards continuity must be taken because films are rarely, if ever, filmed in the order they are presented in: that is, a crew may film a scene from the end of a movie first, followed by one from the middle.

 Editorial: Cassandra Complex - Canons & Carnivores
The second type of continuity is often called 'canon', referring to the word's meaning as a law, or a doctrine that must be followed.
Canon is the maintenance of internal continuity beyond a single story into the realms of serial fiction, and it's necessary to reassure an audience that what has already occurred in previous episodes is still 'true' with regard to the episode they're about to witness.
Canon is, of course, the type of continuity most often referred to when discussing comics, and is ironically derided, lauded, ignored and cherished in equal measure according to who's discussing them.

 Listen To Us, We're Right: Continuity
The logic that matters here isn't the pattern of continuity, but simply the logic of beauty vs. ugliness, Cool vs. Uncool: cool can use continuity to do whatever it wants, but continuity in the hands of uncoolness is death, death, death, and it's silly to say it isn't.
For obsessive continuity hounds, the effect of a continuity error is the same as the broken suspension of disbelief - they're forced to consider a perceived error on the part of the creator, and this forces them out of the world of the story.
I kinda think it’s impossible to say that characterization is completely independent of continuity, or that some things are fundamentally solid and not subject to change because they are basic parts of existence, while other parts are loose bits of convenience.

 SSRN-Confronting Continuity: A Tradition of Fiction in Corporate Reorganizations by Joshua Blank
This Article offers a different justification for repealing the doctrine: the end that the continuity of interest doctrine is intended to achieve - an aggregate group of former target corporation shareholders maintaining a continuity of interest in the acquiror corporation following a merger - is fiction.
Because the doctrine serves a fictional premise, it does not effectively distinguish special mergers deserving of tax-deferred treatment from ordinary sales that should be taxed currently.
While the continuity of interest doctrine serves a fictitious premise, the proposal presented in this Article restores some sense of truth to the policy of reserving special tax treatment for mergers that represent mere changes in form.

Alicia is quite literally no longer in control of her life, as her dreams continually blur the boundaries between fantasy and reality.
And she never quite manages to take control, despite forming new attachments in a family of choice, of sorts, as she still spends all her time and energy focusing on avoiding her central dilemma.
He also does an exceptional job in showing, incrementally, Alicia's deterioration as she runs away, lives on the streets, and goes without sleep for nine months.

 Why do we write?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
This reason requires a show that is imperfect enough to have continuity errors.
You also can't fix continuity errors in a show that doesn't have continuity; that is, in a show where each episode starts and ends at the same spot, with no change in the characters, and no continuing storyline.
This requires a show which is either very episodic, so you can easily slip another "episode" in somewhere without disturbing the continuity, or a show which didn't reach a satisfactory conclusion, and therefore you can stick your new adventures after the end of it.

We science fiction fans are not so different, though, when we struggle to rationalize away the contradictions in our favorite fictional universes.
In normal movie parlance, a continuity error means one of those embarrassing moments when, say, the bandage on an actor moves from the right hand to the left hand between scenes due to a mistake by the makeup department.
It is only the grandeur and majesty of a fictional universe the size and complexity of one like the Star Wars universe, the Star Trek universe, the DC Comics universe, or the Marvel Comics universe (and perhaps soap operas) that is truly difficult to maintain.

 What I Like in Fan Fiction   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
There are two kinds of continuity errors: internal ones, and external ones.
Internal continuity errors are where, within a story, some fact or property is demonstrated, and then forgotten or ignored in some other part of the story.
External continuity errors are where the story is inconsistent with facts or properties established in the universe in which this story is set.

 Expanded Universe -   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Expanded Universe is the fictional universe/world inhabited by various fictional characters, which includes details of the fictional universe that do not appear in the original material (itself often referred to as canon).
It is notable because many Star Wars fans ascribe a continuity between the Star Wars movies and the Expanded Universe, with claims that George Lucas canonized all Star Wars novels as to being the true sequels or prequels to the normal Star Wars movies.
This causes Star Wars works of fiction to make far more of an attempt to be in the same continuity, and featuring the same characters, than other novelizations of science fiction.
