As requested, here is the archive of our Quick Answers posts! We have the questions listed from each one so you can search for what you’re looking for. Each heading (i.e. "Quick Answers 01") links to its actual post. If the answer is readily answered in a link other than to the QA itself or is very short, we’ve included that. If there’s no specific link or it’s a longer answer, it means you should go to the QA post and read the answer there.

Each QA has an "Updated to Episode x" notation, so you have an idea of how up-to-date each QA’s information is (and how much of a time capsule this might form). We’ve found it’s easier to sort these chronologically, so if you’re looking for something specific, a Ctrl+F search is probably your best bet. For example, if you’re looking for information about Allura, just hit Ctrl+F, then type in “Allura” to highlight all the instances Allura is mentioned.
