Roderich Edelstein groaned as he finished his cup of coffee, frowning ever so slightly as he looked at his reflection in an old mirror. With his cravat, dress shirt, walking trousers and dark shoes, his appearance was one that few of his own people would even consider wearing in this day and age. Outside of formalities, at least, the embodiment of Austria nodded quietly to himself while fixing his brown hair and the protruding Mariazell.
Though if he were more frank, his thoughts were on a half-remembered dream, a snow-covered memory over 100 years old. Wistful shades of a Christmas ball from an age of Emperors and Kings now consigned to history, perhaps the last one before it all began tumbling down.
A wintry waltz, alone. With her. The Nation sighed. It seemed almost miraculous that after the War to End All Wars and i

The House of Windsor-Romanov
Formed from the merger between the two great houses of Europe, the Windsor-Romanovs hold sway over what remains of the British Empire and Commonwealth, led by the young Victoria III since her coronation in 2010. It should be stressed, however, that for all intents and purposes the dynasty is a continuation of the British line, being predominant over the Romanov side of the family even though it also claims legitimacy over the former Russian Empire.
The dynasty can be traced to the intermingling of the ruling Hanoverian and Saxe-Coburg-Gotha families in the late 18th to early 19th Century. In a move that served to further emphasize their connection with the peoples of Britain, in 1815 King George IV decided to name his line after Windsor Castle, near London with Parliament's consent. From that point, the kings and queens of the United Kingdom ruled unop

The world was inching ever closer towards the abyss. Arthur Kirkland had long since come to grips with that notion. As did everyone else in the conference hall, his motley group of allies, as they waited around a large map of Europe that had been laid on the table. They should bloody do by now! the embodiment of Great Britain thought irritably.
With Herr Hitler growing madder by the hour, Poland would likely be overwhelmed before anyone could step in to save him. While further east, Ivan seemed to grow ever more impatient in trying to make the world one with him. Not to mention Japan’s preposterous Co-Prosperity Sphere nonsense in Asia. Barely twenty years after the Great War, and it looked as though another one was bound to happen any day now. Never a

This couldn’t be happening, Elizaveta Héderváry thought in disbelief as she paced about the balcony. Such was her anxiety that she barely noticed the fireworks beginning to light up the sky over her capital. Almost as if her own people were mocking her at that very moment. Is this your idea of a joke?!
Through the windows, she could see her Regent, Miklos Horthy entertaining an older yet still amiable-looking Otto von Habsburg. It didn’t seem so long ago, she remembered, that the former admiral turned regent of the realm turned away the newly crowned Emperor’s father away for good. Indeed, just a few months ago, the very notion of another Habsburg on the throne seemed ridiculous. Let alone him arriving on such short notice!

The following presented are a general overview of some of the major languages spoken this alternate timeline. Due to the peculiar nature of divergences and the ideas behind both the terms "For want of a nail" and "In spite of a nail," it is little surprise to find that the versions of the languages spoken may not necessarily be exactly similar to those used in another world or time. Nonetheless, it should also be kept in mind that native-speaking visitors would find much that is recognizable and in some manner identical.
Spoken by approximately 300 Million people, the English language is one of the largest in the world, concentrated primarily in the Northern Hemisphere and the various lands formerly and currently under the British Imperial Commonwealth.

This can't be happening, Francesca thought, loosening the collar on her dress uniform as her free hand grasped onto to a tree for support. Not again! On most any other occasion, the embodiment of New Austria would have reacted with the utmost stoicism. This time was an exception.
Her mind frantically raced, trying to make sense of what was going on, let alone where she was. One minute, she was preparing for a meeting with Loyalist Canada and the other Free Nations. Then here she was. Her eyes darted here and there, a growing sense of dread filling her as she recognized the landscape. For all she knew, she might very well be stepping on her adoptive parents’ remains. This can’t be happening! THIS ISN’T…NEIN! Hold it together…

To understand Collectivism, insofar as much of it could be understood, would be to look beyond its madness, propaganda and imposing barriers into its humble and unassuming past. Regardless of whether it has actually lived up to its word in practice, if one were to inform the "Fathers" of this ideology, they would likely have balked at the notion; then again, so would many at that time.
The story begins in the emerging factories of the Western world during the late 18th-early 19th Century, early in the so-called Industrial Era. Concerns were being expressed over the haphazard conditions of the developing working classes and its implications over the rest of society, though it would take longer before any functional structures were put in place. It was in this backdrop that from 1830 onwards, Wilhelm Marx and Edmund Heinrich, mythologized by the Reds as the "Fathers," made

The Sopron Frontier wasn’t too far off. At least that much was certain, Col. Utreich mused as he glanced outside his tent. Apparently, they were over two kilometres from the present Alpine border. The weather had definitely taken a colder turn as of late, though it hadn’t stopped he and the Alpine Eastern Expeditionary Corps from doing their duty ever since arriving here. Ever since we followed that blasted creature here, he added with a hint of disbelief.
In the distance, past the equipment and vehicles, he caught a glimpse of his men surveying their surroundings as though it were standard procedure, which in most circumstances it would be. Indeed, there seemed at first to be nothing much out of the ordinary. If anything, it looked like most other abandoned sites in the Hungarian Wastes.

She threw up an earth barrier as soon as she landed, preventing him from landing his next strike. He was using the lightning whips again, pounding against her wall. She had two choices; try and dodge the lightning and get in to attack him close range, or stay out of the range of the lightning bolts and try to attack him with long range jutsus.
The better choice was almost always the one the enemy wouldnt expect. She could hear the sound of the wall cracking around her as the lightning started to tear down her defenses. She had to work fast.
Carefully, she began to gather chakra on the palms of her hands and feet, focusing to spread it over her upper arms and calves. Then she compacted the chakra as tightly as she could, creating a fabric of tiny interconn

"That'd be better than rotting away here!" Naruto yelled. Hinata winced and shushed him, rubbing his arm to try and calm him down. He grumbled and held her tighter. "I don't get all this stuff about the 'purity' of the Kaze."
He felt, rather than heard, Hinata sigh, and pulled away enough to look at her face. "You understand?"
She sighed again. "It sounds like something my father would say. That the strength of the clan lies in the purity of each member." She shook her head. "In fact, I'm almost positive he's said just that."
"And in a way he's right," Sora said.

Two Halves Chapter 21Everything seemed to fall apart once they made it back to Sora's house. They lay Nori's body in one of the side rooms while Yasu bawled and a newly awakened Miki screamed. Hinata took it upon herself to calm the girl, as Yasu seemed to be in no condition to do so. They spent hours together, Hinata holding the small girl as she cried. Miki was just old enough to understand what was going on. Her father had left forever, and her mother was too caught up in her own grief to comfort her. Hinata had remembered what it was like when her own mother had died, and would not let the girl out of her sight, hoping to give some comfort to the child, and maybe find some comfort herself.Two Halves Chapter 21 in Fan Fiction More Like This

“Kill the afflicted.”
For many years, since I was first imbued with the curse as a human child. Eventually the savagery of the curse caused my body to change to fit it better, making me into a beast. However, something curious happened. Instead of just killing the one my master willed me to destroy, I actually felt a pang of guilt and then regret while killing him. The next one I only mortally injured, and the one after that got away. My body changed along with this mental state, large animal frame turning instead to a more human shape. I still retained my animalistic senses and the visage of a beast...but with the gentle shapings into a human.
My master was displeased with this, throwing me into the street with nothing more than my slave clothing.
Two months have passed since then, but the curse did not reverse any further. If anything,

The Lost ColoniesIt all began so simply, with as pieces seeking to go beyond. The idea started as a mere glimmer of thought, something written on the margin of a notebook or perhaps scrawled drunkenly on a bar napkin. The collective consciousness could not be denied and the leading minds inadvertently made discoveries that offered credence to that idea. Above the stars beckoned to a people unrelentingly with their siren’s call. Great minds came forth and made hypothesis and were refuted or outright persecuted. Time passed and suddenly the persecuted increasingly in memory became less a heretic or defiler and more a visionary. More modern minds tested, and found that perhaps the prior generation was not wrong, the proved that indeed yes it was theoretically possible. The theory was born on the framework of the hypothesis and was tested. The social and world status did not matter, science was all that led the minds, but inwardly they held their beliefs and they were fueled by devotion.

The means of propulsion, shielding, stealth and, even armor have ridden the technological wave as well. If anything these days the SSC military has a far greater ability to project force then it has in earlier portions of the space age. This trend is expected to continue even as external threats persist and without any real regard to such potential problems. With that said this document is more or less a review not of what has happened; instead it is a record of what has changed. The information released here is of general nature, and the realities of what

[Season II, Episode One]
The profile of a ship is more than just its weapons or appearance. In today’s episode of snap shot we are going to take a look at the vaunted optronics systems used aboard our warships. Optronics is a short hand term for Optical Electronics which are advanced digital equipment that instead of electromagnetic switches utilizes photonics to simulate the same signals. The original system was first demonstrated in the 1840’s by Daniel Colladon and Jacques Babinet. Some twelve years later John Tyndall would also demonstrate a very basic form of what we now refer to as Optronics. But modern system that we use today was demonstrated in 1982 by Colonel Alexander Hildebrand. Hindebrand initially theorized that if there was a conductive medium through which light could travel of comparable economy to conventional copper wires and fiber-optic cables that one could bring computing power of a system up by the twelfth pow

The advanced technology of a space faring people is often touted by science fiction as the hall mark of advancement. But it also can be said that it could also be the hallmark of the end of a galaxy depending on who has the technology and what they want to do with it. Our history is littered with records of peoples using their leaps in technology to unscrupulously pillage, plunder and destroy less advanced peoples. Considering encounters with several hostile species it can be guessed that it takes a certain amount of aggression to leave ones own planet and strike out across the stars or the oceans or any vast expanse.
In this document you will find details of numerous core technologies used to keep a proverbial leg up on earth and in the adjacent stars above our world.

It was defeated, but left behind some gadgets it had made to escape: with anti-gravity and an atomic power source, the US intervention in WWII looked rather different from OTL, with US anti-gravity fliers bombing German cities pretty much at will from 1942 onward, from heights where they couldn't be reached, and atom-powered US ships zipping across the Atlantic at speeds that subs couldn't intercept.

A world in which early Heinlein is the norm for reality. Man first landed on the Moon only a little earlier than OTL, but things moved a lot faster after that: due to somewhat different atomic physics rockets capable of reaching the Moon are nowadays as cheap as smallish yachts, and quite a few private individuals own them (although there are strictly enforced regulations). In 2010 there are extensive settlements on the Moon, Venus (swampy, wet, hot, and venomous) and Mars (deserts, canals, and a very ancient race). Saturn is the current limit of space exploration.
On the alternate physics down side, atomic power plants were so unsafe that reactors were built in space from the 60s to the 80s, and rocket fuel and industrial radioactives shipped back down to Earth: only in the 90s were models safe enough to allow on a planet developed. (In 1984, a less than successful "improved version" on the far side of the Moon created a 20-mile wide lake of green glass).

It led to revolts in various British colonies, invasion panics in three dozen countries, two new religions, and an enormous increase in the purchase of telescopes.

A joyous tremble coursed through Hinata's body as her mind made sense of the blond ninja's words. He'd asked her to marry him, her most pleasant dream becoming reality before her eyes. She felt the blood rush to her head and her balance start to go; she may have gotten past the habit of feinting, but this was just too much. She watched as the floor began moving toward her but she didn't notice, all her focus was on managing to reply, "YES". Before slipping unconscious she felt Naruto's strong arms around her; one thought occupying her mind, I'm going to marry him, I'm going to be with him forever…
Tsunade burst into the room just in time to see a certain indigo haired Hyugaa collapse into the arms of another, strangely dressed, shinobi. "Naruto what did you do now!" she roared at the orange and black clad ninja. Although Naruto had come to realize Hinata's feelings

I understand I have to do them, but why you? Mitsuki asked. I am still a ge-nin, Naruto mumbled a bit down. What! Youre kidding, right?

In the evening two days after he woke up, Naruto was allowed to go home. He had covered his tail under his shirt and wore a hat to cover his ears. But walking around in the village made him feel a bit uncomfortable. He saw their eyes, still filled with hatred and disgust, even more than before. Some of them ran away, others just stood there, looking at him with fear as if he was about to attack them. Not believing he was back and still a human.
But Naruto ignored those eyes. He was looking for Hinata; she hadnt been in the hospital since he woke up. Naruto had searched all over in Konoha; the only place where he hasnt been yet, was the Hyuga residence. He wanted to go there, but was hungry and went to Ichiraku first. Hello, old man, he said, while entering. Hey, Naruto. I havent seen you in a while. I already wondered when you would come again, Teuchi said.
Naruto smiled a bit and sat down. The usual, I guess

Not again, she thought, Why are they always after me?
Naruto dashed to the Cloud nin and wanted to hit him in the face, but the Cloud ninja blocked it easily. He punched back, but Naruto was also able to block it. Quickly he made some signs. Kage-bunshin-no-jutsu! he said. The shadow doppelganger helped him with the Rasengan. A ball of light blue chakra was in Narutos hand.

Naruto suddenly got aware of the staring people and stopped the kiss. He looked to his right, seeing Kiba jaw dropping and not able to say a word. Sakura looked at him with a questioned look and Kakashi had a little pink in the face, as if he had just seen a real scene from his perverted book. Mitsuki, on the other hand, was looking away.
