Hoover Dam, Mojave. 2280.
War, Anne F. Jones mused in her head as she made her way towards the makeshift stage, the sounds of gunfire still echoing in the far distance. War never changes. But neither should common sense! The blond girl groaned for the nth time, her hands straightening the skirt and necktie of her dress uniform as she moved past the gathering soldiers. Some of them were excited, though most others were more concerned with the front lines no so far off, let alone the crazy risks in pulling off a morale-boosting speech in the midst of the most contested piece of the Mojave Wasteland.
And she didn’t need to directly hear their gripes, let alone look at them. She sensed it, and she shared their concerned more intuitively than any politician. Indeed, she’d rather toss her uniform off, don her combat gear and rejoin her group of Rangers in hunting down

Neither was holding these in Liechtenstein’s house, let alone anywhere in the neutral Alpine Confederation. But why did it have to be on Halloween? the Nation of Canada, lately the Canadian Remainder Provinces sighed to himself.

As much as the embodiment of Switzerland – and one-half of the newly forged Austro-Swiss Union – attempted to feign a shrug of rough indifference, he couldn’t quite pull it off. Can’t hide it in front of you, Lilli, he thought while shaking off more uncomfortable thoughts. Never, to you.

Logan reappeared back in the Portal Terminal from the ruined world. Exhausted and worn down, he stumbled out of the portal-platform and into the stunned operators and onlookers. The rest of his "undertaker" expedition followed suit, exhausted but it did not deter his urgent desperation. The young boy in his arms was at the brink of death. Nein, not on my watch!
"He need emergency medical treatment now!" he cried out in German. "Bitte, can anyone get me a damn doctor?!"
He only just rescued this boy, the only living survivor left in that dead world, moments ago. As the unconscious figure was teleported away to the Medical Centre, the senior operative was forced to go through the decontamination process, all to make sure that he was not affected by the harmful radiation that poisoned the kid's hom

Schonbrunn Palace, Vienna. 23 October 1941.
“…And let me repeat this, gentlemen,” Otto von Habsburg, rightful sovereign of the Austro-Hungarian realms addressed his guests in crisp English that hardly betrayed the stress and tension of the past few years. “It is a pleasure to welcome you all here in these fascinating times. To victory, order and a better world!”
Here assembled in the half-refurnished dining hall, Roderich Edelstein noticed, were a few delegates and leaders, some even from lands as varied as America and free Poland. Standing beside the monarch was an aging Prime Minister Horthy in his old regalia. Here too was Winston Churchill, the trademark Cuban cigar on his hand still fresh from the United Kingdom.

The main years of the Terror (1923-27) saw a mass movement of refugees across the world, some groups and nationalities luckier than others. Yet by the time the last ships crossed the Atlantic, little (if at all) remained of the countries they escaped from, with no hope of immediate return. This also rendered the notion of governments-in-exile entirely pointless. "How could you do so," argued one critic, "when you represent nothing?" This line of thought extended to the later "casualties" of the Revolutions.
Yet the memories of the Lost Nations endured. As the refugees slowly integrated into their new homes (how this manifested varied from country to country), languages, traditions and customs were preserved and passed on. But as time went on, it became apparent that they could only do so much before becoming little more than historical relics. Still, there were those who thought it necessary to keep the embers from dying. Some long

Imagine, if you will, an Earth where the great crowns of Europe and Asia still retained their power, alongside young burgeoning republics. An age of prosperity and bright progress. Where some things are different, while others continue more or less as you'd expect them to. This world may thus look in many ways familiar, but where the course of events turn generally for the better.
Now, picture all of that gone within a few years. Despite the warning signs, no one on New Year's Day 1920 expected that world to implode in what came to be known as the Terror. No one knew either that this was the opening salvo of similar catastrophes worldwide. Many lives lost. Many taken away from those who survived. The events and memories of the years that followed soon trumped over those of the ones before.
This is a world where the Red banner looms triumphant over the better part of humanity. Where the Free Nations continue to struggle aga

Gilbert wanted to believe that there was some kind of sick joke being pulled on him and his men as they fought their way past another group of Polish and Austro-Hungarian soldiers.

It seemed only yesterday when Italy surrendered and deposed that fool of a dictator, along with more recent successes. Some could have said that it was too good to be true. Yet here we are, back in action, Roderich thought wryly as he moved towards the men blockading a small cottage. Though to be more precise, they were a couple miles deep behind enemy lines.
Of course, the bespectacled Austrian knew that his very presence here was classified. In fact, he was the one who agreed do to this seemingly small but dangerous mission personally.

The group of ninja were walking along the path, each lost in their own thoughts, save for Shikamaru and Kiba, who were talking back and forth about Kibas latest involvement with troublesome women. Shino walked along silently behind them. Every once in a while he would be greeted by one of his bugs, who were busily scouting the area ahead for any signs of the caravan, or enemies. Naruto plodded along, hands in his pockets, thinking about the past few days. He was tailed by a very irate-looking Akamaru, who, in order to vent his frustrations, began to trot around the group taking passing snaps at butterflies who were lazily flying about. This prompted giggles from the final member of the mixed squad, Hinata. She spent most of her time blushing slightly, and staring at the back of Narutos head. Every once in a while, she would activate her Byakugan and scan the surrounding area.

After the episode with Naruto and the fire wall no jutsu, she had started to try and defuse the arguments between them. Gradually, however, she had come to realize that they rather enjoyed yelling at each other. One of them would pick a fight, they would call each other names for a few minutes and then they would move on. As long as it wasn't too serious, she had learned not to get involved.

Dijonist CommunismThe dominant form of left-wing ideology in the galaxy, Dijonist Communism is one of history’s greatest ironies. An ideology originally drafted to create perfect equality instead became the justification of one of the strictest hierarchies in the galaxy. An ideology that originally opposed religion instead became one, for all intents and purposes. Dijonism has become the face of communism, both within the Conseil Systems and outside, and is widely emulated throughout the galaxy. Adherents to Leninist or Marxist interpretations are few and far between, and if they are not particularly useful manage to earn the ire even of the Conseil Systems. Dijonist Communism, like its Leninist predecessor, claims to be Marxist but branches off from orthodox Marxism in that it doesn’t consider industrialization a necessary component for communist revolution. Dijonism believes communism can be exported, but it also believes that Conseil communism is the most perfect form. Therefore, annexingDijonist Communism in Settings More Like This

A series of thirteen books by prominent counterfactual historian and auszeit researcher Robert Vietneicht, Rule Britannia is a dystopian novel that supposes an earlier (but failed) Russian Revolution, leading to an Entente Victory in the Kaiser's War. The series follows history from 1920 to the 2740s, including a Collapse analogue (called "Armageddon" in the book) and ending with a broken humanity under the rule of the tyrannical, gusano-ruled Galactic Union.
In the book's alternative history, the Russian Revolution occurs earlier due to Entente success in the Battle of Sevastopol. This knocks Russia out of the war and motivates communist revolutionaries in the German Empire to rise up. The Russians manage to defeat their communist foes and establish a croixist regime, but the rump Germany becomes the dystopian, Conseil-esque People's Republic of Germany.

To understand the language of the United Technocracies, one must understand the origins of the people that now make up that country. Given these planets' Soviet roots, the populations of these planets were mostly Russian, if not Slavic in origin. As a result, when these worlds united in the face of Conseil invasion, their diverse mother tongues, already somewhat amalgamated because of decades of Soviet domination, further merged into a new language. With the imposition of a new government by technocratic forces, the new language was formed.
By the time of the United Technocracies’ unification, the official language was, in essence, as much an evolution from Russian or Polish as modern-day American (Merkan) is from either English or German.

As it grew, it was adopted by many in the artistic world as an extension of the romanticist movement, and consequently adopted many romanticist ideas.

A Future History(OTL = Our Timeline, recall)A Future History in Settings More Like This
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).
After Independence DayThe 10-megaton nuclear device, in the most probable outcome, would have caused serious but not irreparable damage to the Mother Ship. The world-ship was, after all, some 550 kilometers wide.  Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen design error, the main Small Craft Embarkation Area was only about 8 kilometers from the space-twisting drive, which was destabilized by the blast.After Independence Day in Settings More Like This
As a result, the ship's mass was accelerated rather violently in all directions at once: the majority of those directions being space-time other than our own, which, combined with the fact that what mass was in our dimension was usually moving beyond earth's escape velocity, meant that although the giant ship was in a near-earth geosynchronous orbit a mere 22,000 or so miles up only a small proportion of its mass actually hit the earth (and that was generally in pretty small pieces).
Still, it was an awfully large ship.

The first Martian invasion of 1898 was disruptive enough. The destruction of the world's financial center and a massive drop in British investment abroad led to a nasty financial panic, a world-wide slump, revolutions in Latin America, and the May Revolution in which the Czar was forced to cede more power to the Duma than OTL 1905. 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. It also resulted in a serious effort to create a truly Federal Empire, since Great Britain on its own would be unable to afford its commitments for some while, along with the dumping of some of the more unprofitable bits. It prevented the coming of a general European war, since Kaiser William would declare himself the champion of anti-Martian preparedness and push hard for joint

It's a steam-punk world, of course.
In the Jules Verne universe, arts is ornate and baroque, and the neo-futurist style nowadays clashes with the techno-Egyptian in architecture, and "function determines form" is hardly heard of: pillars, balconies, statues atop spires are normal parts of skyscrapers. Peristyles, monoliths, domes and geometric colossi: lots of shiny brass, colorful synthetic stone. Not that this is all very visible: this is a vigorously capitalist society, and enormous advertising placards and posters glued to building walls by boys riding one-man blimps deface the buildings, which are also usually a bit dingy from pollution. Slidewalks carry the gaily dressed throngs along streets glittering with electrical lighting, and the tubes of pneumatic transport services criss-cross overhead.

A hot wind blew against her, carrying whispers with the heat. They were faint, like the voices of a chalkboard, the powdery lines given utterance to mumble white words. Hinata strained to hear them, to make some sense of the sound around her. One voice came through clearly.
A forest began to gather around her in the swirling red fog, the trees pushed into focus by some strange force.

Panic rose within her, and she ran, speeding through the trees with her arms trailing out behind her.

Neji turned, and it struck her just how much he disliked her. His eyes, calm and pale, just as hers, roared in anger. He wanted to say no. He wanted to slap her across the face and ask why someone so worthless would want him to do her a favor, why he was subject to someone so… so much weaker than himself.

Hinata woke with a start, Naruto's name half escaping her lips before realizing her surroundings, she lay in bed her warm covers wrapped around her, she was wearing only her still damp bra and panties; her hoody and pants were hung on the wall to dry. She looked to the door noticing it was locked, exactly as she had left it, no one had been in she knew. It wouldn't be a difficult thing for any of the Hyugaa shinobi to pick the lock and enter, but it would prove very challenging to leave and lock it again from the inside, that left only…Naruto. Hinata lay back against her pillow, her cheeks adopting the pink red shade they always did when she thought of Naruto. She knew that the only reason Naruto had removed her cloths was out of worry for her, Naruto wouldn't invade her privacy, he'd proven that already; he truly genuinely cared for her. She looked out her window and knew she hadn't been asleep more t

The words hit her harder then any physical blow ever could, or ever would. She was to be married to some guy she didn't even know!? But Naruto already proposed! I'm his fiancé! This can't be happening, this cannot be happening!
"Hinata-samma?" the messenger's voice brought her out of her trance to face cold hard reality.
"W-when w-was t-t-this decided?" she asked already dreading the answer.
"To the best of my knowledge your father has been setting this up for some time, my apologies for demanding your return, I was unaware that you were uninformed regarding this situation. However we must hurry back to Hiashi-samma; your father will be expecting you back shortly."

The lean muscular figure leaped through the trees, his clothing drenched from the heavy downpour that assaulted the land of fire. The gusts of wind and the mighty deluge assaulted him from every conceivable angle, but through it all the blond blue eyed teen only smiled.
It had been three long, long years, made to seem all the longer from the excruciating training his perverted sensei, the toad sage, had put him through. The young mans smile faltered slightly at thoughts of his painful training. However as quickly as it had appeared it was replaced with an even bigger grin; the training may have been difficult, but he had to admit he was stronger now then he would have thought possible.
Unfortunately… no thoughts of strength could rid him of the memories of Ero-sannin's "investigations", or his Itcha Itcha series.
The young blond's thoughts were interrupted before they could

Naruto and Hinata stood in awe of the great structure that stood before them. Carved into the very rock of the mountain side stood a great clan hall, one that looked more like a fortress then a family estate. Its walls, carved in both sharp and smooth designs, but always to perfection. From Hinata's perspective it became clear that someone had used a technique to mould the stone; human hands could not be so precise.
"T-this is where my ancestors lived?" Naruto asked, awe resounding in his husky voice. Hinata couldn't answer him, Tsunade had not mentioned anything like this, and she was just as shocked as he was.
Slowly Naruto approached path leading up the mountain to their destination, the path led from side to side as it progressed towards the top. "Bah why would they build the thing all the way up here!" Naruto asked, annoyed.

Iruka looked to the side and saw Naruto leaving the village. He was only wearing his underwear and had two fox ears and a tail. Iruka wanted to call the boy, but somebody grabbed him and put one hand on his mouth. Its no use, he will be a full transformed fox tomorrow morning, a man behind him said. Iruka struggled and the man let go of him. Rakuna, were going. A wolf came out of nowhere. But I want that boy, hes tasty! the wolf protested. Hes no longer in our way. We must focus on our prey. The man and the wolf disappeared and Iruka turned his head to the gate. Naruto was already gone.

Damn wolf, get of me. Naruto tried to push the wolf away, but its claws buried deeper inside him. Get off him. Naruto stopped pushing and looked in the direction the voice had come from. A girl was standing there; she looked angry and scared at the same time. Let go of him, Rakuna! she shouted. The wolf turned her head to the girl. Stop it! He no longer controls you!
Sakura, Kiba, Akamaru and Kakashi turned around the corner and saw a wolf standing on Naruto, their head turned to a girl further ahead.

The wolf nodded and walked inside, with the girl on her back. The man closed the entrance and opened a door. It led to a corridor. He and the wolf walked slowly through it, leaving a trail of water behind. It had rained that night.
Hinata felt she fell on the ground, but wasnt sure why and were she was. Slowly she got up and saw the wolf leaving the room and the blood limit hunter closing the door. He had an evil grin on his face. She heard the door being locked. Hinata sighed, she had failed again.

Sakura was staring at Naruto, who was kissing Hinata. He even had pink in the face. Since when She looked at the others. Kibas mouth was open in disbelieve. Tsunade was about to fall of her chair and Kakashi was even looking stunned. More interested in this then his perverted orange book, he was holding open in his left 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.
Ahum. Naruto quickly turned his head to Tsunade. She was trying to look serious, but couldnt. Naruto looked at Hinata, she was looking back. They were still holding each other. They rapidly let go, staring at the ground, with red faces. Both feeling unc

A shockwave hit the six ninja as they were looking to their sick friend. Hinata, who already thought so, was scared. Now that Sakura said it, it sounded so definite.
Right, Lee, you bring him, Shikamaru said, calm again. The group stared to him. Take those weights of and go, dont stand around, Shikamaru said. Lee nodded and dropped the weights. He picked up Naruto and laid him on his back. Bring him to Tsunade immediately, Sakura said strict. After that Lee dashed off with his enormous speed.
Sakura helped Hinata standing up. Lets go, Sakura said. Everybody nodded and they started to run back to the city, though not as fast as Lee.

Naruto looked over his shoulder to Hinata. She was about to cry from fear. He looked back at the enemy. Why do you want her? he shouted angrily. We just want the secret of the Byakugan and she is the weakest one of her clan, the cloud answered sinfully. Hinata fell on her knees, crying in silence.
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.

Naruto was walking around in the forest of Konoha. His hands in his pockets and his eyes were focused on the ground. The one thing that was on his mind was Sasuke. Sasuke and the fact that he didnt returned to the village after killing Orochimaru.
Stupid Sasuke, he thought, you think your high and mighty. Wait until you see how much I improved since the last time we met. I will kick your butt so hard that you will beg for mercy.
But even thinking things like that, didnt make him feel better. He knew very well that he had a long way to go until he was strong enough to do something like that. Naruto stopped walking and looked around to see where he was. It was the place where team 7 passed Kakashis test. Somebody was standing behind one of the wooden pillars. Forgetting everything about Sasuke, Naruto walked up to the person. It was none other than Hinata.

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.

He had lost it.
No, he told himself. He hadn't lost it. He'd lost ALL of it. Anything good in his life had practically been snatched away from him. To be honest, he hadn't seen it coming. He, the smartest irken alive, had missed something. That didn't happen very often. Especially when this something was impacting him so much.
Out of the corner of his eye, he spotted something. Gaze shifting over, Zim quickly regretted looking towards the object. It was just a normal, half used up roll of duct tape. Purple duct tape, to be more specific. Battered up, with dirt caked around the edges. Zim looked away swiftly. He didn't want anymore reminders if what happened in the previous days.
What happened, you may ask?

Well, not exactly her in general, just the affect she had on him. Before Zim had known her, he thought of himself as perfect. Strong. All powerful. But she could make him squeal in nothing flat. Worse? She could make him squeal in delight in nothing flat.
That was what he hated about her. She always had the upper hand in everything. Whether in designing a construction or just in comebacks, Tak always left Zim flustered and angry. Sometimes, if she was in a good mood, she'd try to cheer him up, but usually, Zim would just fume, eyes shooting daggers into the wall.
He hated her persuasion powers. How she could get him to do anything she wanted. He was Zim! Tak should not have these affects on him!
Zim loathed his weakness for her attention. Though he'd never admit it, Tak could get him to roll over and beg, if she really wanted to. Zim's gut instinct was now to please her... Even if it meant doing her dirty work. He liked it when she was proud in him. Not that he

Yeah, sure. Why would he care about stupid laws?
Zim finally pulled away from her grasp. Tak looked at him adoringly. Zim looked at her loathingly.
"What... What is the meaning of this?!" Zim demanded, face scrunching up. Although he looked disgusted, inside he felt warm. Loved. Wanted.
He wanted her.
Tak's voice was small, but oh so soft. It was that voice that made his knees weaken. That voice that drive him wild. That made him blush so fiercely.

It was a perfect day to be outside.
But unfortunately for our antagonist, it was a school day.
Trudging in the damp halls of the school, Zim felt any traces of a good mood simmer away. Bags were underneath his contacted eyes, while a dark scowl hung on his mouth. Zim's feet moved as if they were a hundred tons, carrying him slowly down the school's hallway.
Kids surrounded either side of him, joyously chattering away about any subject that came to mind. The short irken's antenna twitched from beneath its wig. Children reeked of foul smells. Not only this, but many of them were uglier than the Dib human.

Zim, who was currently waving Tak's shoe around, smiled a wide smile. "And just why should I do that, Tak-girl?" He spoke in a playfully dark tone.
Tak cut him a dirty look. "Because I said so!! Don't make me hurt you, you lousy little-" Tak was stopped by a boot clonking her on the forehead, obviously thrown by Zim.
At least Tak got what she wanted.
She fell over, hitting her leg against a rather large rock. Tak groaned in agony.
Zim, oblivious to the situation, grinned deviously. "Well Tak, you did want your shoe back!!" He laughed loudly at the girl's misfortune.
Tak was too busy being in pain to notice Zim laughing at her. She instantly saw the deep gash on her left thigh, blood leaking from the wound.

"Very, very much. In fact, I wish for you to... Share love. Zim wants a love pig." He spoke, voice steady, but arms trembling slightly. Zim was so ready for Tak's rejection. He braced himself, holding tighter to her hands. Tak only stared, looking a bit sympathetic.
