    To be a Fox and a Lion - A Different Nordic Renaissance

    I recommend reading the update before last (chapter 30).

    Map Thread XX

    I don't know that that's the case—the original map doesn't look like a Mercator to me. Not 100% on what it actually is, though. But it probably wasn't reprojected, you're right.

    Could the USSR win the war against alcohol?

    Actually, the United States government did poison alcohol during Prohibition, so really not as far-out as you might think. If something's already illegal, then it's not a huge step from there logically to shift the chemicals commonly used in its production so they can't be used to produce the...

    To be a Fox and a Lion - A Different Nordic Renaissance

    Absolutely incredible work, as always. Interesting that the Ottomans don't seem to be actively backing Zapolya, but to be honest it might make more sense to play the one against the other if you're hoping to weaken Hungary sufficiently for conquest. Also, being entirely pedantic, but this...

    Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics or Political Figures Here)

    i feel that one highly overlooked yet very cursed aspect of this timeline is that the capital of the US is in Vegas like i know slavery is still a thing but somehow i just can't stop thinking about Caesar's Palace being a literal palace

    Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    Well, maybe for part of its existence. I would say the Venezuela crisis of 1895 kind of illustrates the exact opposite (MD being enforced in opposition to British power), and certainly around the time of the Civil War, it rested largely on American power: see the French invasion of Mexico at the...

    Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    Okay, so the United States is going to defeat and subjugate the British Empire? The French? In the 1860s? Only a systemic hegemon can dictate international law. Yes, international law is often superseded by realpolitik, but the point of international law isn't to be a literal law code for the...

    No, they're called ferries. Well, at least OTL they are.

    Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    No, but they were recognized as a belligerent power (if not an independent nation) by most of the international community during the war, and some aspects of international law do apply to belligerent powers.

    Al Grito de Guerra: the Second Mexican Revolution

    Very exciting; fantastic update and you can feel the victory in the air for the Mexican nation...even if it might turn out to be a bit more difficult than that. Ledo has quite a lot of debts to pay, and people he can't piss off, and those might be mutually exclusive with reform. Fascinated to...

    The Legacy of Saint Brendan: A History of the Western Hemisphere, 512 to 1400

    Glad to see this back! You do seem to be missing some footnotes there, though.
