  1. The Death of Russia - TL

    Hello there, folks. Okay, so I've popped up into this TL every so often, and honestly even a couple months ago it looked really promising, but holy f*ck I actually didn't expect to see the twist that happened here. Truly seat-of-your pants type stuff, @Sorairo, and I mean that in a very positive...
  2. What alternate history ideas you wish they were used more often?

    Nice discussion we're having here, folks! :) Ya know.....I've actually thought making at least one or two TLs along these lines(not full ones, though). Fascinating indeed! I don't think I've ever seen a TL quite like it before. Got any links for us? FWIW, I did have a TL idea revolving...
  3. Culture of a world where WW1 was averted

    Interesting concept, though I will say this: contrary to what some have speculated on here, I don't think that socio-cultural norms(be it for women's rights and civil rights, or LGBTQIA+ acceptance, etc.) necessarily would have lagged behind OTL by that much (and quite possibly, not at all...
  4. AHC/WI: Ex-Confederates Deported Emasse

    In regards to the bold-this is a good point, and even by purely objective standards one cannot help but notice there were a number of things that simply could have gone better with Reconstruction, to various extents, even if you only approach it from the standards of its own day.....and that I...
  5. What alternate history ideas you wish they were used more often?

    Oh my, oh my. Where, exactly, do I start? There are actually many, many ideas that I've entertained along these lines, but I'll gladly serve some up right now: 1.)Less harsh legislation in regards to Chinese immigration to the U.S.-Although avoiding this altogether might be genuinely difficult...
  6. What are the more obscure butterfly effects of a failed American Revolution?

    Oh my goodness, where to begin? This is, honestly, one of my top 10 favorite topics, so hopefully nobody minds any potentially really long posts from me here. I'll address Canada a little further down, but Australia + N.Z. would likely still be settled by Britain, yes-maybe not as reliant on...
  7. AHC/WI: Ex-Confederates Deported Emasse

    Honestly, to put this simply, deporting *all* ex-rebels almost certainly wouldn't happen even under the most radical Republican administration; that said, though, that doesn't mean that ex-Confederates would necessarily have free reign-it's not at all hard to see, for example, some states...
  8. Cliches and unrealistic things to avoid in my Confederate victory scenario.

    Well, hello there, OP. As a veteran of AH.com, and someone who's been considering writing a couple of these TLs, I think I can help you with a few things. For starters, I think it goes without saying that you want to avoid the worst CSA-related cliches, like slavery ending voluntarily for...
  9. What is a common thing or trope that always seem to happen?

    Eh, to be fair, though.....there's a good bit about U.S. politics that probably wouldn't change all that much even with an early POD-for example, there would most likely be a Civil War, there would almost certainly be a time in which social issues dominate politics(and which reactionaries...
  10. No Hitler = far right wank?

    There actually was, though. *Sigh*. I'm sorry, but.....do you not realize how problematic this framing is? There are plenty of explanations that have been offered, Rufus; I dunno if they're explanations that will satisfy you yourself, per se, but explanations nonetheless. I myself, on this...
  11. No Hitler = far right wank?

    Here's my contribution: To be quite honest.....in short, I know this may end up being controversial, but even if Hitler's rise to power had been butterflied, it ultimately would not have been able to sidestep the rise of liberal democracy in Europe-maybe delay it by a few decades in the...
  12. What is a common thing or trope that always seem to happen?

    Yeah, most of this. My only caveat in regards to the bold. Eh, this actually isn't as rare as some think, and, TBH, certainly is a trope that can work really well, if done well enough. The problem is, though, it sometimes doesn't work, and the king/queen-or president, or whatever-can even end...
  13. What is a common thing or trope that always seem to happen?

    Oh, another cliches thread. This an AltHistory Wikia thing, mostly? Yeah, that's definitely been an issue with CSA TLs-I've been meaning to cover the issues with that in another thread, btw, for what that's worth..... This is.....not something I've seen very much of, actually. Which is a...
  14. DBWI: If Western Columbia had not been sold to the United States would the attempt at Canadian Confederation have succeeded?

    To make a long story short.....this often is quite surprising to many Americans in particular, but this actually came fairly close to happening IOTL and was seriously considered for some time even after the former Western Columbia was annexed: only after the Great Splintering of 1896-1907 did...
  15. Project X: CaliBoy's Very Own Free-Form AH TL

    Well, hi there, folks. For those of y'all who may have been missing the timeline.....I truly am sorry. I was not only busy trying to keep up with college, but there was other stuff I was trying to take care of.....and I had a little bit of bad luck along the way(including the fact that the...
  16. DBWI: America did not Annex all of Mexico

    I have to agree, TBH, and it is possible that the CSA being defeated in the original Civil War(instead of the Second War Between The States), might well have led to better short-term relations. As it was, even Juarez's cooperation with the U.S. was mainly only possible because Juarez was a...
  17. DBWI: America did not Annex all of Mexico

    Honestly, this is gonna be a tough question to answer, but here goes: One majorly important POD that could work? Have Martin Van Buren *not* run for a second term in 1844 and have somebody like James K. Polk or Lewis Cass win instead. Polk, especially, was not interested in annexing even more...

    Hey, phx1138, thanks for stopping by!
  19. Project X: CaliBoy's Very Own Free-Form AH TL
    Threadmarks: Post #2's first part is (finally) up.

    Well, hi folks-sorry it took so long to get back to this, but hopefully this lets y'all know that the TL's not dead(not at all). Just hadn't gotten things to work out as well as I'd hoped initially. So anyway, thought I'd let y'all know that Post #2 is going to be a big one so I've decided to...

    Nice job, @TheMann! Glad to see somebody still posts here every so often. :cool:
